Gear Retail & Rental

Grab your gear

You don’t have to go to an expensive outdoor outfitter to get gear for your next excursion. At the IU Outdoor Adventures Gear Shop, you can buy or rent everything you need for your camping trip, rock climbing expedition, bike
outing, or other outdoor activity—all at competitive prices.

We carry equipment and supplies from a wide range of companies, including Columbia, Nalgene, Clif Bar, Kleen Kanteen, Wigwam, Mountain Hardwear, Black Diamond, Light My Fire, and Mountain House.

Rental Requests Deferred to August 30th 

Just like you, we are busy this time of year.

Because of the many Welcome Week programs our staff is facilitating for the rest of August, we are pausing the rental side of IUOA. If you want to reserve anything one or after August 30th, please go right ahead and fill out the Gear Rental Form.  

Thanks for understanding and we can’t wait to see you outdoors again after August 30th.
