About GearLocker

We are a family-run business in Grand Rapids, MI that offers premium outdoor gear rentals. Our mission is to encourage adventure and lower the barrier to the outdoors.

Our family loves the outdoors and understands the value of quality, reliable gear. From the Porcupines to the Rockies, Smokies to Pictured Rocks, we’ve spent years testing tents, packs, stoves, chairs, and everything in between. We bring that knowledge and experience to you to offer top-rated gear from trusted brands like Marmot, Kelty, GSI Outdoors and more at a fraction of the cost to own.

We hope to be part of your next adventure soon!

How Rentals Work

Reserve Online

Reserve gear for the days you need. You may change or cancel your reservation for a full refund up to 7 days before your start date.

Pick Up or Delivered Locally

Pick up your gear in East Grand Rapids or we'll drop off locally for free! Both available up to one day in advance of your start date.

Return With Ease

On your return date, place everything back in the container provided and drop off at our location before 11:59PM.


Renting with GearLocker is simple:

  1. 1. Reserve your gear. – Choose a bundle or select a la carte and enter your rental dates. Have a special request? Need help planning or creating a custom package? Get in touch with us, we’re happy to help!
  2. 2. Pick up your gear or have it delivered locally. Your rental gear is available on your start date or up to one day early. Send us a message and let us know when to have it ready.
  3. 3. Return your gear in the container(s) provided. Place everything back in the original container and return to us before 11:59PM on your rental end date. 

The earlier the better to ensure the gear you need is available and on hold for you. You may book as early as 6 months in advance, with the latest checkout 3 days before you start date.

You may cancel up to 7 days in advance of your rental start date for a full refund. If you cancel within 7 days of your start date, you will be charged 50%.

We understand life happens and unforeseen circumstances force a change in plans. We promise to work with you to find a solution that works for everyone.

Currently we do not offer shipping. If you would like your gear dropped off and you live in the Grand Rapids area, send us a message or email us at hello@gearlocker.co and we will do our best to accommodate.

You will never be charged for normal wear. If you lose any items or return them with significant damage, you will be charged the full retail price for each item.

These guys were amazing and very easy to use. You just select the equipment you need and when you need it by and they're on it! Will definitely use again in the future. They have a wide selection of camping equipment for use. Very useful to a person like me who only goes camping a few times a year and I didn't want to invest in all that equipment/gear.

Thank you so much for the jetboil. Our wood stove was not yet inspected so we had no other way to hear water on our winter glamping adventure. We made ramen and hot chocolate!Thanks again- can’t want to rent more in the future.

I wish backcountry campgrounds made it this easy to book. The rental, pickup and drop off were great. The gear was perfect. I definitely recommend.

I rented the bundle with the pack, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, cook stove, and headlamp. The gear was all in fantastic shape and worked great for my 3 day trip. The owner Eric was really nice. He took the time to show me the equipment and how to use it etc. The price I paid for the high quality gear was extremely reasonable, and he was very flexible on pickup / drop off. I will definitely use GearLocker again!

Outstanding! Gear was in excellent condition and did not leak during a rain storm. Instruction manuals were provided. Eric was communicative and flexible in arranging pick up and drop off time. 10/10 would rent again!

Top-quality camping gear. We will be a repeat customer with GearLocker for sure. If you are not a regular camper, I would consider renting with GearLocker. Eric was great and made the pick-up and drop-off process very easy.
