Rent Ultralight Bikepacking Equipment For Your Next Adventure

Bikepacking is a lot of fun, but the gear to enjoy your trip can be expensive to purchase. Life Above Eight in Seeley, Wisconsin built out this Community Bikepacking Gear Lending Library so people who have never gone bikepacking can give it a try without investing in all the bags, small, lightweight tents and sleep systems, etc. Those who like bikepacking, but only do it once or twice a year can also rent the gear rather than make the $1,000 plus investment in stuff that sits on a shelf 50 weeks a year.

Pick up and return the gear from Dave Schlabowske in Seeley, Wisconsin, or make arrangements with Dave to drop off and pick up at a local bike shop. Contact Dave with any questions at

Gear Library Includes:

  • 5 Salsa EXP Anything Cradles with double sided dry bags

  • 5 Relevate Designs Terrapin 14L Seatpacks

  • 5 Big Agness Copper Spur HV UL2 Bikepacking Shelters

  • 5 Exped Synmat Ultra 1R Mummy air mattresses

  • 5 Enlightened Equipment Apex 50° Quilts

  • 5 Trekology pillows

  • 5 BRS 3000T Stoves

*Special rental discount for Patrons. Join the Nxrth on Patreon to save on your next trip.
