QUALITY HIRE GEAR

We know the key to a better Kepler, Routeburn or Milford Track experience is having the right hire gear.

Our small Easyhike team are all Kiwis - born and bred, who grew up in the outdoors (our youngest member has just started his outdoors journey - and he is just 1!). We love to be out there doing it and are passionate about helping you have the best outdoor experience possible as well.   Tried and tested, we have hand picked our hire gear including backpacks, sleeping bags, rain jackets and more so you have what you need out there in our back yard - Fiordland National Park.

HOW IT WORKS

 We deliver your hire gear the night before (to Queenstown or Te Anau),
  You go hiking, and drop your hire gear back to us in Te Anau or Glenorchy which is on your way to your next stop.
*Sorry - we do not hire individual items.  However you can hire just the essentials - so we know you have the right gear out there.

HIRE GEAR - ESSENTIALS

This is the hire gear we consider to be essential for your walk - the usuals that for your own comfort and safety, you can't go without.

  • Quality, lightweight,  adjustable and gender specific 50-75 litre Osprey backpack with pack cover and pack liner.
  • Warm and lightweight Sea to Summit sleeping bag and stretchy bag liner - very comfortable with great warmth to weight ratio.  Most of our bags are Trek ii (Sea 2 Summit Trek ii Specs)
  • Rain jacket - Our jackets are mostly Marmot, The North Face, and Stoney Creek with rain and breathability rating of at least 10,000 mm.
  • Cooking/eating equipment – top of the line, lightweight Sea to Summit pot, bowls, mugs and knife/fork spoon sets plus scrubber and cloth.
  • LED LENSER head lamp
  • First Aid kit

If you have your own rain jacket which has an appropriate rain rating and also breathability (we recommend a rain and breathability rating minimum of 10,000 mm) this is fine for you to take on the trail -  you are used to wearing it, it fits perfectly and it's yours. You may also want to take your own head torch - no problem.  If this is the case, just tell us.

HIRE GEAR - PREMIUM

Essentials gear, plus a few items which are nice to have and may well just top off your experience - especially if you are new to staying in a wilderness hut with no electricity or shower facilities.  NOTE: Only available as part of our Premium Package.

  • Quality, lightweight, adjustable and gender specific 50-75 litre Osprey backpack with pack cover and pack liner.
  • Warm and lightweight Sea to Summit sleeping bag and stretchy bag liner - very comfortable with great warmth to weight ratio.  Most of our bags are Trek ii (Sea 2 Summit Trek ii Specs)
  • Sea to Summit inflatable pillow - comfortable and very light plus packs up really small!
  • Easyhike care package including insect repellent - a must have in Fiordland!
  • Rain jacket - our jackets are mostly Marmot, The North Face, and Stoney Creek with rain and breathability rating of at least 10,000 mm.
  • Rain Pants - helpful in cold or wet weather.
  • Cooking/eating equipment – top of the line, light weight Sea to Summit pot, bowls, mugs and knife/fork spoon sets plus scrubber and cloth.
  • Thermos for hot drinks on the track which can make all the difference if you need a pick me up.
  • LED LENSER head lamp
  • First Aid kit

OPTIONAL EXTRAS

Hiking Poles - Black Diamond expandable hiking poles. 2 per set.
Sun Cream - essential for hiking in New Zealand summer to help prevent sunburn.  The brand we use is high performance SPF 44 with a user friendly balance of application ease and durability.
Personal Locator Beacon - if you want to carry a PLB for your own safety and fast rescue assistance, we are happy to collect this for you and deliver with your hire package for a small service fee.  You can also hire these directly from the Charitable Trust operating this service in Wanaka, Queenstown, Te Anau, Manapouri and Milford Sound.

Loved the food package

I enjoyed using Easyhike to help me do my Routeburn Track hike. You were so helpful every step of the way, even with my itinerary changes, and it was such a pleasure to have my car waiting for me at the end of this rainy day! I loved the food package you put together as well - so many wonderful things to eat! Thank you so much for everything.  Andrea D, USA

Routeburn Track with Easyhike

We traveled from California to do the hike - and could not possibly have been able to manage it as easily, if at all, without the amazing services offered by Bobbie and her team at Easyhike. They reduced the logistics of the trip to virtually zero for us: Delivering rucksacks with absolutely everything we'd need or want, from rain gear and sleeping bags to food and first aid kits, right to our hotel the day before the hike. They also arranged to move our car from the start to the finish, so it was awaiting us when we got there. Literally all we had to do was dress and show up. The whole adventure was amazing - and if you have even an inkling that this might be something you'd enjoy, then DON'T HESITATE!! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience...  David L January 2018

The package we have got from easy hike was just what needed to have when you are coming to a track but you don't want to bring all the gear for few nights only. Ami

Great Trek!

My husband and I completed this hike in early Feb. and it was one of our highlights from New Zealand. It is a great 3 day 2 night hike, but could be done in 2 days pretty easily. We used EasyHikes to organize the trip for us. We selected their premium package and didn't have to do anything but show up, which was great! They provide high quality gear, supplied all of the food, reserved our huts and transferred our car. We stayed the first night at Routeburn Falls Hut (about a 3 hour hike from the Routeburn car park). We ended up transferring our second night hut stay from Lake McKenzie to Lake Howden hut to give us a full day of hiking. Lake Howden was great, it is less crowded so there is much less snoring and it's easier to get a good nights rest! And the last day we had a short 1-2 hour hike out and then could enjoy Te Anue and the Milford Sound.

Beautiful hike! And, highly recommend Easy Hike to help organize the trip!! Meredith L, Alabama

A great way to experience a hike in NZ

Our family of 5 (3 teenagers) hiked the Routeburn Track in mid-December. It was a great time, not too hot and only one day of rain. The track is an amazing way to see a huge variety of NZ terrain, plants and birds. Every turn was a photo opportunity.
We used Easy Hike to provide all our packs, food and sleeping bags, as well as relocate the car. As the name says they made it really easy and I would highly recommend them. Saves a lot of hassle in what you need to think about bringing.
The DOC huts along the track are really well laid out with just the right amount of comfort to get you through the night, but still allowing you to experience the great outdoors. David A, Sydney Australia

High quality equipment

I was a little leery about using rented equipment. What Easyhike provided was very high quality. No different than what I would have brought for myself. The packs were great.  Dave A, USA

Must Do Great Walk!

A truly memorable experience. A mixture of weather conditions, but it didn't spoil the breathtaking scenery! I did the track over 3 days, finishing at The Divide. Stayed in DOC huts, that were all very clean. I also chose to use a food package from EasyHike company which delivered to my accommodation in Queenstown the day before my hike. Totally hassle free, great food options, plenty of food, light to pack and carry. I was very happy. A must do Great Walk! Kit Y April 2018
