Finding gear that will fit/work over time

(average ~4 hours to research, shop, compare)

Getting exactly what you need for now

(average ~10 min, no risk of being stuck with it)

Spending more or settling

(e.g., buy both a 0 and 30 degree sleeping bag, or settle for a 15 degree?)

Spending less on the exact use

(average savings ~$140 per trip from the diversity of gear we offer)

Maintaining your own gear

(~1 closet to store gear properly, and hours to dry it, stitch it, etc.)

Letting someone else deal with it

(while you can take a nap and enjoy the rest of your after-trip glow)

Owning it

(and sharing with trustworthy friends)

Sharing it

(living with less clutter & being green)
