About Us

We define the ‘Back 40’ as the explorable wilderness just beyond the city. Back 40 Outfitters was built by avid outdoorsmen and women who appreciate the natural world and are fueled by the challenge to share it with others.

Our mission is to help you explore the outdoors in a more convenient and less intimidating way. We want you to try before you buy and feel empowered to use top quality equipment without the need to own it, maintain it and store it.

We know that the logistical hurdles of planning an outdoor adventure can be quite challenging. That’s why the Back 40 rental model is a more complete spin on renting than you will find anywhere else. Back 40 provides all you need to participate in an outdoor adventure in convenient ‘kits’. Our kits have everything down to the smallest detail so you don’t need to bring anything except your clothes, some food and an appetite for adventure. You don’t even need to know what you need, because we already do. Our rental boxes, located near downtown Seattle offer you the most flexibility for when you pick up and drop off your gear. Essentially, we’re open 24/7!

Let’s get outside!
