If you wish to rent from us but do not possess a Credit Card, we will not accept rental on your part. If you can find someone to vouch for you, they will become the person responsible for the rental and name you as the authorized person to take posession in their name, but legally the rental is theirs and their full responsibility - even if this is intended for you. You name cannot and will not appear on the contract. In this case it is solely your responsibility to ensure they are fully aware of our terms and conditions. We reserve the right to take action against the cardholder in the event you would fail to do so accordingly to everything aforementioned.

Friendly and helpful staff. They will take the time to answer your questions and help you come to a well informed decision.  Prices seemed to be reasonably competitive as well.

I stumbled across your store while visiting Montreal. When I walked in, I found a huge selection of gear at awesome prices. Picked up a Lowpro 450 Pro Runner BP, for $100 cheaper then any place I've found in Toronto. Thanks! I will be limiting most of my gear purchases to when I visit Montreal!! You WILL see me again!
