Insurance

Does anyone here have their gear insured? Yesterday I went down pretty hard while walking down an embankment covered in loose rocks. Both my body and lens took a bit of a hit. The body has a couple of scratches but is otherwise OK. The lens hood got chewed up but the glass is fine other than getting covered in dust. Everything tested out fine afterward but it got me thinking about insurance. It would have cost me around $4,000 to replace that gear if it had been broken.

I think my renter's insurance will at least partially cover the gear but I'm wondering if I should look into a specialized policy for photography equipment.
