Rent Toward Purchase Program

Summit Hut allows you to test certain packs, sleeping bags, snow-shoes and tents in our special rental inventory to see if they fit your particular needs. If you would like to "test drive" one of these many items before purchasing, you may apply ONE 1-5 DAY RENTAL CHARGE toward the purchase price of a regularly priced item of the same category.

Please note: Not all styles are in our rental program, but you may apply the rental credit toward a similar item (e.g., you rent a Kelty pack, but decide to purchase a Gregory pack).

You must have the receipt for the rental, and the discount does not apply on sale items. Please ask our friendly staff for details.

Sorry, climbing shoes and trekking poles are not included in this program.
