Gear Check

There are two Gear Check areas for Hustle climbers. Please plan accordingly when traveling to Hustle Up the Hancock.

Hilton Gear Check
A small-bag gear check is located on the 3rd floor of Hilton Suites Magnificent Mile
198 E. Delaware
(this is same hotel as the Celebration Expo).
Hancock Coat Check Only
There is a coat-only gear check located on the Garden/ Concourse level of the John Hancock Building.

Gear Check Tips & Tricks:

  • Use a bag that has a zipper closure, unique marks, tags, or identifiable characteristics. Keep checked items and size to a minimum.
  • If you park at John Hancock Center, consider leaving your gear in your vehicle.
  • Hancock Coat Check is for coats only. You will not be able to store small items such as tote bags, duffel bags, phones, cameras, keys, etc at the Hancock Coat Check. Small items can be checked at the Hilton Gear Check.
  • If you have guests attending the event, consider having your guests hold your small-bag items while you climb.
  • Please do not bring valuables to the event.
  • In an effort to keep the walkways open and safe for all participants, items cannot be unattended.
