This was my first rental using kitsplit and thanks to Matt I’m definitely a fan. His gear is in top notch shape and way friendlier to work with rather than some rental houses.
I’m 100% backing him.

Great equipment, solid communication.

Matt's a great guy. All the gear worked great.

Matt is a very friendly, helpful, and prompt guy, and the lens I rented from him was exactly what I was looking for. Would definitely rent from him again, and highly recommend him to friends.

Matt was great, fast and easy communication. I'd recommend renting from him.
