Gear Rental

Gear Policy

BOC gear is available for personal use by any club member.  To check out gear, follow these steps:

1. Come by our office in the basement of Faunce (directions below) during gear room hours.

2. Find the gear that you want to check out (see partial list below).

3. Fill out a contact sheet with your name, information, and the days that you plan to use the gear.

4. You will have to pay a nominal fee (usually between $5-$10 for all the gear you’d need for a trip) for the gear that you check out. Additionally, leave a deposit check or credit card for the replacement cost of the gear you checked out. We won’t cash the deposit check or charge your credit card; it’s just an insurance policy to be sure that you return the gear in decent condition.

5. Have a fun trip!
