Hire clothing


We are going to Antarctica in December via Ushuaia and coming from sunny Queensland have no winter clothing suitable for this trip. Does anyone have any experience of hiring this type of clothing in Ushuaia?

Is there anywhere to hire clothing/boots etc and what about costs?

Any information would be helpful.

1. Re: Hire clothing

if you go to the main street in downtown, Ushuaia (which I don't remember the name, but it's only one, and it's about 10 blocks) you will find a place that rents clothes/boots. In that same street there are many other places that sell winter clothes, and there are always "sales" so it's not as expensive as it is for example, here in Bue. Also the ship sells clothes (but it's more expensive to buy them there). And, usually, they will lend you rubber boots too. They have in all sizes. But send them an e-mail to confirm what I am saying.
