Camping Season Supply, Outdoor Gear Rentals for a Sustainable Texas


The pandemic turned many of us into aspiring Lewis and Clarks, but, as we’ve discovered, outdoor gear doesn’t come cheap. Thankfully, one Austin shop provides in-person and online access to gear rentals across Texas and the continental U.S. By implementing a digital platform offering curated camping packages and individual supplies—including high-quality tents, sleeping bags, hammocks, and more—users can have the goods delivered to the store or shipped outside of the local service area (prepaid return shipping labels included). One of CSS’s primary goals is sustainability; by offering rental gear, consumers cut down on the purchase of new goods and get a no-commitment means of trying new activities. All cleaning and maintenance are handled by the supplier, which extends the lifespan of the gear, enabling more people to explore the wild places of Texas. Win-win.
