Vegas Oufitter

This is seriously off-topic, but I know some of you live out there. My wife and I are heading to zion and bryce in a couple of weeks and I need to rent camping gear, we're flying in and out of Vegas. There's no way to easily fly all of our gear out for 4 days. REI is apparently now in Henderson, but they don't rent stoves, coolers, etc. Anyone know of a full-service outfitter somewhere in the area? I've used a strange gold miners supply/surplus store on the north side before, but there gear is limited in selection and I'm never sure anything is either clean or will work. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Tony

Umm, actually...
REI rentals

It would be a good idea to call the store to confirm, but most REI's rent camping gear.

Have fun!

Thanks, saw that they rent there, but the last time I rented gear from an REI (Alburqueque) they managed to mismatch the tent poles to the tent, resulting in a week in a tent that looked like an orb and had the floorspace of your average yogurt carton. My buddy and I spent the week camping in a tent that made us feel like the honeymooners with a 12' ceiling. Figured this out when I was in Monticello, Utah and could do nothing about it, hence my reluctance to hit an REI for rentals. My buddy and I no longer camp together.
