Hiking, backpacking, and camping are wonderful, enriching outdoor hobbies that can become lifelong passions. But they require an investment of time and money, especially when you start out.
If you are a beginner, you may decide hiking or backpacking isn’t the hobby for you. Wouldn’t it be great to try out the sport and some equipment to see if it fits you and your lifestyle? We want you to love the outdoors. That’s why we offer a rental program to help you ease into your outdoor hobby.
Rent packs, tents, and sleeping pads
Alabama Outdoors rents a variety of packs, including ultralight and heavier packs for men, women, and children. We also rent men’s and women’s trekking poles as well as sleeping pads and tents. Packs, tents, and sleeping pads tend to be the most expensive equipment, so renting equipment first may help you decide if you like the activity and what you want to own for future adventures.
For your safety, we sanitize all of our rental gear. When a customer returns rented equipment, we place it in a holding area for 24 hours, then sanitize them before they can be issued to another customer.
It’s a great way to try out packs and different types of equipment.
If you are interested in renting hiking, backpacking, or camping equipment, drop by or call an Alabama Outdoors near you for more details about availability, options, and exact pricing for your trip!

- Trekking Poles: $6 – $8
