Why Rent Boots?

Though essential for wading in icy waters during Zodiac landings, the proper boots are bulky and weigh between 4.5 lbs / 2.5 kgs to 6 pounds / 2.73 kgs. By renting boots, you are guaranteed to have the best boot to stay warm and dry in Antarctica, while gaining space in your luggage for expedition gear and clothing.

  • Less luggage. Boots are heavy and take up lots of your allowed checked luggage weight.
  • Convenience. Free boot delivery to the ship through our Concierge Service.
  • Sustainable choice. Renting boots is a smart environmental choice if you will likely not wear them again. The drastic savings in fuel and carbon is seen below... Both the Reduce & Reuse part of 'Reduce, Reuse and Recycle' are implemented. Learn more about reducing your carbon footprint through renting boots.

Boots are sanitized after each rental using products that have been proven to work in U.S. high-end ski resort rentals.
