Premium gear to join in the fun

Gearhouse curates the best gear on offer for members to use when they want to join in on an adventure - no garage (or garage-sized wallet required).  

Room for all skill levels

We tailor our trips to accommodate a wide range of experiences from beginner to intermediate. (advanced coming soon)

Carpools from Gearhouse
to the trailhead

Never fear - all events and activities start from Gearhouse to arrange carpools so those without wheels aren't left behind.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any minimum commitments? No minimum commitments - cancel anytime!

What gear do you have? We have everything ranging from kayaks to ultralight backpacking equipment, to mountain bikes, to backcountry skis - the only gear we don't carry is climbing equipment. You can see our full inventory here!

How often do you run events?  We strive to host outdoor adventures 2-3 times per week, and 1-2 classes per week. Some are after work on weekdays, others on weekends. 

Can I use gear on my own? You betcha! We operate 6 day rental windows so that pick-up and dropoff is a breeze - no extra fees

It's time to meet outdoorsy people beyond your coworkers. 

"So much more than a rentable REI!" - Taylor H.

"This place definitely isn't charging enough" - Carter R.

"Gearhouse would have saved me so much time if I'd come to them sooner for advice" - Kayur P.

A note from the founder

We all moved here to get outside.

But once you're here, most people find three problems:

  1. It's hard to meet people in this city.

  2. The gear needed to experience the outdoors is expensive.

  3. And then you need to store it.

That's why we built Gearhouse - to give outdoorsy people a way to meet and get outside without raiding the 401k. 

We've helped hundreds of Seattleites make lifelong friends and save thousands on premium gear! I'd love for you to stop on by.
