Office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 to 8:00 PM at our office at 15 Linden St., Cambridge, MA 02138. Stop by to ask questions, rent gear (free for members), and return rented gear! Email hocgearmanager (at) gmail (dot) com with any questions.
Please note we do not rent stoves, headlamps, or water bottles.
**Office hours during the summer are not on a regular schedule and will be announced weekly over the HOC email list.
The HOC’s policies are located here. By borrowing gear from the HOC, you agree to all of the HOC’s membership and gear policies.
Linked below are some sample gear lists. They’re pretty thorough, but they’re just meant as guidelines, and aren’t necessarily complete. Be sure to talk to your trip leader (or come in to office hours to chat with us if you’re planning your own trip) if you have any questions about appropriate gear.
