I've used Piragis for about 5 years now, ever since my return to the BWCA after 12 years of being away. They rent top rate gear at great prices. They replace their rental equipment every year, so you are always using new equipment. I was so impressed with their gear that I bought a used rental Kevlar canoe from them at the end of the year. It was in great condition, saving me about $1000 off of a new one. They are very helpful over the phone for questions, also. Plus, their store in Ely is fun to wander around as you pick up your gear. Can't recommend them enough. We recently took a winter trip up and rented a winter tent from them and it worked out great.
