Swinburne Explorers Club

Gear Hire

Hire policy

The club has a couple of tents, cookers, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, head torches and so on that can be rented out for club trips. Have a look at our gear list below. This is our gear hire policy:

  • gear can be rented out for our own official Explorers Club trips only, not to external people for private trips.
  • the gear officer will open the gear locker once a week on specific times set by his or her availability for one hour or so. This is the only time when members can rent out equipment.
  • members can rent out gear in the week before the trip.
  • they need to contact the gear officer for that at: gearofficer at swinexplorers.org
  • they will pick up the gear from the gear officer, directly from the gear locker during the opening times set by the gear officer.
  • renting the gear is free, there is no fee.
  • members need to pay a refundable deposit, which depends on the value of the gear that they rent out:
    1. cheap item (sleeping mat, pot, etc.): $10
    2. medium expensive item (Trangia cooker, head torch, sleeping bag, etc.): $20
    3. expensive item (tent, etc.): $50
  • this deposit must be paid in cash.
  • the renter needs to return the gear at the next opening time of the gear locker directly to the gear officer.
