Calculate savings from renting camping & backpacking gear!


2 = average (LMG user study)

Consider:

  • Is it hard to coordinate friends' schedules?
  • Is it hard to take time-off?
  • Will you go on trips in different seasons that need different gear entirely?

3 = average (2014 industry report)

Consider:

  • Do you move often?
  • Is it easy to lose gear, or have friends borrow it forever, or damage it?
  • Might your body change in a way that requires different gear?

Savings = cost of buying per trip - cost of renting per trip. Cost of renting per trip = simply our suggested rental prices for one. Cost of buying per trip =

  • The value of basic gear necessities / total number of trips (trips per year * number of years) + time cost (1 average hours to prep, clean, repair gear per trip * $25/hour SF living wage)
  • The value of basic gear necessities LMG provides across seasons = $1200 for camping & backpacking (includes $150 for a roomy car-camping tent, $300 for a lightweight backpacking tent, $150 each for warm & cold-weather sleeping bags, $100 for a sleeping pad, $200 for a backpack, etc.), and = $700 for snowsports (includes $250 for a jacket, $150 for pants, $100 each for helmet, gloves, etc.). While you can get a basic gear package cheaply, folks have told us about cheap gear breaking on first use!
