The Adventure Worx for Indiahikes Backpack comes with a top load section with meshed back support for carrying loads easily.

This backpack is currently available for our Roopkund trekkers only. We are working on extending this facility to other treks as well, but that’s going to take some time.

This backpack is currently available for rent on our Roopkund, Gaumukh-Tapovan and Kedartal treks.

With 7 external pockets to carry all your gear, the Adventure Worx  for Indiahikes backpack has a dreamlike suspension that enhances mobility and comfort while you carry heavier loads through your treks. We’ve worked extensively with Adventure Worx to make this perfect backpack.

Features

1. Top-loading main compartment with fully padded contouring that promotes ventilation and upper body mobility.

2. Anti-Gravity, 3D suspended, ventilated mesh back panel that contours automatically to the body, according to load, providing outstanding fit.

3. Integrated rain-cover that protects your content from foul weather and rain.

4. Dual stretch meshed side pockets, zippered hip belt pockets, and large front stash pocket offers additional storage and organization.

5. Volume – 48 Litres, enough for an 8 day Himalayan trek.

Points to Note

1. The rental cost of Rs 390/- is for the full duration of the trek.

2. An extra refundable deposit of Rs.1000 (in cash) is charged at the base camp. This money will be returned once the backpack is returned at the last campsite.

3. The gear should be collected at the base camp.

Our plan is to create a revolution in the gear merchandising industry by making good quality gear easily affordable. Why should a person buy an expensive backpack when he can take the same backpack for Rs 55 a day? Trekking is a minimal adventure sport and we want to encourage people to spend less on equipment and more on experiences. Vinay Rajapuram, Head, Rentals & Merchandise, Indiahikes

Why you should rent gear and not buy it

A huge part of planning a successful trek deals with using quality gear. But it pains us to see trekkers spending more on their gear than on their trek! And backpacks occupy the top most position in their list of gear.

So to make trekking more economical we started renting gear in 2017. Every piece of equipment available for rent is specially crafted for our trekkers. So when you decide to go on a trek, there’s one less thing you need to worry about!

With our simplified rental system, you can rent gear, use it well and return it with ease. Furthermore, with our advanced delivery at the base camp, trekkers hardly need to worry about missing out or carrying a gear all the way from their city homes.

Do let us know if you think this is going to help the Indian trekking community. We already rent out trekking poles, jackets, ponchos, shoes and backpack. Comment below and let us know what trekking gear you want to see in our store next.

  1. If we are trekking in roopkund via some other agency..can we still rent indiahikes gear at base camp of lohajung?

    1. Hi Kishan,
      Our rental gear is available only for Indiahikes trekkers. You will not be able to rent it if you are trekking with someone else.

    1. Hi Louis,
      Indiahikes is not affiliated with IMF. If you wanted to know this for the purpose of applying for special casual leave, you can apply for individual membership of IMF and then get the leave. We can give you a letter saying that you are going on a trek with us if you sign up and go with us.

  2. Hi folks,

    Can I get this for rent for this year May’s Rupin pass trek with Indiahikes? It would be really helpful.

  3. Hello,

    Can I get this for rent for this year July’s Kanamo Peak trek with Indiahikes? It would be really helpful.

  4. Hi Aditya,

    I am planing to hire trekking material for Dayara Bugyal trek. Is it available for that trek. If so, what items can be rented?
    Waiting for your response.

  5. Hi I’m going to hampta pass with IH on 16th sept and thinking of renting out this backpack but I’m clueless about how to carry my stuff to the basecamp!
    Can you guys help?
    Or if possible can I rent it out from Delhi itself with me and return on the way back??

    1. Hi, you may carry your stuff in a duffle bag/suitcase till the base camp. Then, at the basecamp, transfer your stuff to the rental backpack you trek with. After coming back, you take your stuff back in your suitcase/duffle bag. We do not provide rental options from Delhi 🙂
