    Your guide should have provided you a list of things he will provide you, or that you could rent from him.

    In Anchorage you can rent a bag from REI.

    You will not be able to rent boots. Boots will depend on the terrain you will be hunting. Your guide should have told you this in detail. If hunting in mountains you can buy good boots from REI or Barney's Sports Chalet in Anchorage. If hunting the coast you will want breathable waders and good wading boots. Buy these from a fishing store like Mountain View Sports.

    Sounds like its a coastal hunt. Get good fitting waist high breathable fishing waders, and high quality fishing boots for them. Then you will not need knee boots or hip boots. You will need some kind of lite hiking boot for wearing around camp. Too many options to get into. Just make sure they have gore tex.

    In anchorage go to mountain view sports and get them to gear you up.
