The office is currently closed for winter break until early January. Watch for our office hours to be updated as January approaches.

All MOC members have access to our wide selection of gear at student friendly prices. Gear is rented out on a weekly basis, with daily late fees equal to 1/7 the cost of a weeks rental. You can check out our inventory here.

The maximum period of rental is 4 weeks.
Each member is allowed to rent at a time, unless they have a specific permission from the Gear Manager ( gear@McGillOutdoorsClub.ca):
– one (1) tent
– 2 crashpads
– up to three (3) items of the same type

Please note: in addition to the normal rental fee, a cheque, perma-cheque, or credit card deposit is required for every gear rental. Credit card deposits are preferred. One time cheque deposits will be returned after you bring back the gear in good condition (i.e. clean, dry, non-broken). All other forms of deposit are kept on file to be used for all rentals, and securely destroyed when your membership expires. Please note that you are responsible for full, as-new replacement cost of the gear, which may exceed the deposit value.

Try to come earlier during the week to secure your gear, as we often run out and we do not reserve gear.

*Equipment rented at the house is for one-day use and no deposit is given.

If we don’t have what you need, there are a couple of other options for you depending on what you need.

For daily excursions in Montreal, McGill Athletics rents equipment.

For longer trips outside of Montreal, you can look into MEC although it can be quite expensive.
