GT December Gear Roundup
Winter’s moving full steam ahead, and ‘tis the season to treat yourself to UnNew clothing and gear, and shop UnNew for friends and loved ones. We heard some grinch took over the supply chain system this year, so we’re counting our lucky stars that the goods here on Geartrade are all already in the US and easily shippable. You’ll find tons of gently used listings and consignment goods on the site right now, plus a good helping of brands’ oversupply and returned goods that are hardly worn or are even essentially new in their boxes.
Thanks for celebrating the arrival of winter and the holidays by shopping here on Geartrade rather than creating fresh pollution in the landfills. There are so many delightful items available at a deep discount right now that you’re sure to find the perfect thing—all while preserving the planet and making your budget go farther.
Here are a few things that used-gear Santa is particularly excited about. And as a bonus, none of it is stuck on a container ship in the port of Los Angeles.
Around-town winter wear
There’s something for everyone—men, women, kiddos, and even doggies. Right now there are tons of puffy jackets from Arc’teryx, Patagonia, Mountain Hardwear, Burton, Outdoor Research, Stoic, Columbia, and many more. Find them in any size or length, including kids’ too.
There’s also a variety of winter boots from the likes of Sorel, Kamik, LL Bean, and Sperry Top Sider, plus warm pants, gloves, and hats perfect for around-town and apres.
Whether you ski or board, we’ve got whatever you need to complete your kit for the winter. Thanks to our thriving consignment program, we’ve got a robust supply of ski and board outerwear, long johns, gloves, helmets, hats, and goggles—plus a tremendous bounty of skis and boards (both mounted and unmounted) as well as boots and bindings.
If you’re into backcountry or cross-country skiing, you’ll also find boots, bindings, and skis—plus clothing layers fit for the intensive cardio. (There’s even a waxing kit or two listed at the moment. Get ‘em while they’re hot.)
Cold-weather exercise layers
Runners, hikers, snowshoers, and cyclists, you know full well that you can exercise outside all winter long if you’ve got the right layers. Check out the running tights, long-sleeved shirts, lightly insulated jackets, softshells, vests, and breathable gloves available now for men and women.
Scope what’s available and make your move. It’s not getting any warmer out—but you are.
Parents, grandparents, aunties, and uncles, we know what a pain it is to buy kids new winter wear every year. But on Geartrade, you don’t have to—you can buy gently used and resell it here when you’re done!
Right now we have a good inventory of just about everything you’d need to get a kiddo stocked up for skiing, boarding, snow play, or chilly walks to school. You’ll find everything from mittens to snow pants, winter boots, hats, and those hella-cute puffy one-piece suits for babies.
Summer may be gone, but choice tidbits of summer gear are still in stock, and they’re discounted at 50-80% off retail. This treasure trove is worth checking out, because there’s almost definitely something you could use, whether it’s a lighter camping sleep pad, a new pair of climbing shoes, a good-looking summer button-down, or a sweet new tent.
When you’re done shopping for all the gear goods you and your loved ones need this holiday season, go have a gander at what’s gather
ing dust in your own gear closet and storage room. There’s surely an old pair of skis, backpacking pack, pair of climbing shoes, or puffy jacket you haven’t used in a while. Throw it onto Geartrade by listing it yourself or simply requesting a free box to send it to us consignment-style. When it sells, you get paid—which is way cooler than letting those items sit unused forever.
And tag us in your UnNew gear adventure photos! We love see Geartrade alumni items in action.
