Damaged Gear / Refund
You agree immediately to discontinue using the gear that becomes unsafe or in a state of disrepair, and immediately to notify Mountainist of such fact.

Insurance offered by Mountainist covers minor repairs if the gear rented from Mountainist is damaged during normal use. The charge for the insurance service is $3-5 per item and will appear as a separate line item during Your checkout.
