GearTrade.com BBB Business Review


About Us


GearTrade.com was founded in 1999, in Provo, Utah by a group of outdoor enthusiasts and entrepreneurs who saw a need for an outdoor gear marketplace.


In 2005, GearTrade was purchased by John Bresee and Jim Holland, the founders of Backcountry.com to continue pursuing the reuse of gear. GearTrade is based out of Park City, Utah by a small group of skiers, mountain bikers and snowboarders. If you're heading this way, let us know, and we'll point you in the right direction. Until then, play hard wherever and whenever you can.

What We Do

Our mission is simple: To provide core outdoor enthusiasts with the best marketplace to buy and sell their gear.


We want to make it as easy as possible for people to reuse gear, keep the planet a little cleaner, and save the next generation of ski bums a little cash.
