Geartrade Gear Roundup: July
The sizzling July weather is here (thanks, drought, and please don’t start any wildfires, y’all). Fortunately, summer fun is also in high gear, and we’re proud to showcase the UnNew, gently-used, surplus, and right-out-of-the-box gear currently hanging out on Geartrade waiting for its new owner—you!
Whether you’re heading for the hills and climbing in the cooler alpine temps, plunging into a nice river trip, or savoring the airflow on a nice singletrack bike trail, we’ve got everything you need to get properly geared up.
Check out the highlights below, and don’t forget to sell any unused goods you’ve got lying around. We make it easy to sell your gear. You’ll enjoy the extra cash you earn. Keep it, save it, or spend it on purchasing UnNew goods on Geartrade that you actually need. It’s the circle of gear life.
Footwear fit for the trails and the crags
Even the best hiking shoes, trail running shoes, approach shoes, and rock shoes wear out after a certain amount of mountain time. Since you have to replace them regularly, it helps to score a solid deal. That’s why we’re happy to report that we have tons of footwear currently listed from trusted brands like Dynafit, Scarpa, Salewa, and Black Diamond. Many of them are spankin’ new or very gently used. And, you’ll want some sandals ready when you get back to the car from your adventure, so be sure to browse our current supply of hiking sandals and casual sandals from Chaco, Teva, Olukai, and Merrell. There’s plenty in stock for both men and ladies.
Clothing you can wear around the campfire or your local brewery
While you can find tons of tech clothing on Geartrade right now, like quick-drying and breathable clothing for running, hiking, and cycling, we also have an exciting number of around-town items, too. Think plaid button-downs from Columbia, Prana, Stoic, and Patagonia. And comfy tees from brands like Jack Wolfskin, Helly Hansen, Volcom, and The North Face. There are even a number of darling lightweight summery dresses from Helly Hansen, Kavu, Jack Wolfskin, and Toad & Co. (Ladies, order these up before the Geartrade gal-staff pounce on them.)
Trail tech to track your adventures—and light up the outdoor experience
While we all know that items like sport watches, solar panels, and GPS trackers can be costly, many folks don’t realize that you can get almost all these items secondhand (and sometimes unused, right in the box) here on Geartrade. That’s right—if you’ve been thinking about getting a snazzy running watch from Garmin or a powerful Goal Zero solar panel, this could be your big chance.
Hats to shade your face … and hide your backpacking hairdo
When it’s blisteringly sunny out, you’ll want to pack a hat. (Or, if you’ve logged some sweaty trail time and don’t have confidence in your dirt-coiffed hair … also grab a hat.) We’re lucky enough to have quite a few summer caps here on Geartrade ranging from broad sun-shade hats to good-lookin’ about-town hats for men and ladies from Brixton, Pendleton, Pistol, and Outdoor Research.
As always, tag and send us pics of your adventures in your UnNew gear. We love seeing it out there having a great summer with you rather than sitting in the back of someone’s closet or warehouse. Follow us on Instagram + Facebook: Tag us @geartrade with the hashtag #unnewoutdoor #wearitout on your post or story for a chance to be featured on our page.
See you out there!
