What’s not included? Not much. Each XscapePod is a curated assembly of essential, high quality camping gear- compared to other rental gear services which only include a tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad and water filter. Our Pods are adventure tested so that you don’t find yourself on the trail saying, “DAMN, I forgot the ___ !” Our Pods have everything you need so you can escape everything you don’t! Just pick up your food and coldsnacks (beer) and you’re on your way.
Pod delivery options? Our delivery truck "Iceberg” (white 90s Landcruiser) offers delivery/pickup all around Portland, OR. every day of the week. Round trip delivery and pickup fee is $25. If you prefer to pick up your Pod directly from our office we’re located at 5229 SW Dolph CT Portland, OR 97219.
Is the equipment cleaned between trips? Yes, all equipment is inspected by hand, cleaned, and repacked between each trip. Special attention is paid to cookware and sleeping bags. All mess kits and utensils are run through a dishwasher, and sleeping bags are sanitized.
What if I lose a piece of equipment during my trip? Insurance is offered for $10 per trip. It’s a small price for peace of mind during your adventure. If insurance is not chosen, any gear lost or damaged beyond repair will be charged to your card. Replacement or purchase costs for each piece of equipment can be found under each XscapePod lid.
I really liked a particular piece of equipment, can I buy it directly from XscapePod? Sure, if you find you really like a piece of equipment while on your adventure, just keep it. The price for each piece of equipment is listed under each Pod lid. As equipment “seasons” the price is lowered. Since all of our gear is excellent quality some great deals can be found as the gear goes through its natural life cycle.
Are longer term leases possible? Sure. Want to rent gear for multiple weeks, or the entire summer, no problem. Call us at 202-288-7742 to discuss long-term lease options
Discounts for not for profits or military? Yes. We offer 10% off for Military. Just check the Military box during checkout. Please call for not for profit pricing.
