Try It

Why spend hundreds of dollars before you know you love it?

Try It … before You Buy It


Our hugely popular “Try It” program allows you to try camping gear before you buy with absolutely no obligation. When you decide to try camping gear, we will charge you the rental fee. If you love it and want to keep it, you can apply the entire rental fee toward the purchase of the item brand new. If you decide it’s not right for you, just send it back to us. You pay only the rental fee (a fee you have already paid when renting).

Simply put, no one else anywhere is providing this opportunity. If you think you want it, but are not absolutely sure, just go ahead and try it before you buy it!

Rent to Buy

With the largest stock of rental camping gear in the world, Outdoors Geek allows you to try tons of camping products before you buy. Just hit the “Rent to Buy” button and you are on your way!
