Bigfoot Backpack Rentals started as a desire to share the experience of backcountry camping. We wanted to find a way to make the backcountry accessible to everyone, without them having to spend thousands on gear. We know how intimidating it is to purchase all the gear on your own, so we formed Bigfoot to provide you a chance to take the first step without that fear.
The company is run by three adventurous young adults who each share an appreciation for the outdoors. Regardless of how our admiration for nature was kindled, it has come to a place of pure respect; which we hope to share with others and let them have their own journey with the magic of trees, humility of mountains and calmness of alpine lakes.
Hiking up mountains and camping in the woods can be intimidating if you don’t have a friend who can help you with the gear. That’s why we’re here. We want to be a part of your experience (almost) every step of the way.
We will provide you with all the tools you need to explore the great outdoors while maintaining safety and respect for the elements around you. We’ll help you pick your hike and camping location, teach you how to pack your bag, help you decide on what to pack and what not to pack, and of course, rent you reliable gear. All the gear we provide is from the same trusted brands in our personal kits, so we feel confident in its quality; and after each rental we clean and check all the equipment to ensure it maintains our high level of standards.
We’re a locally run company that aims to promote sustainable living and an appreciation for the outdoors. For every pack rented we donate $10 to One Tree Planted. An organization who plants one tree in British Columbia for every dollar donated.
In the words of Ferris Bueller, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once In a while, you could miss it." So get out there and take a look around.
From all of us at Bigfoot, we look forward to helping you take that first step!
