Geartrade March Gear Roundup: For this snowiest of springs
Hey friends, it’s your Geartrade fam here with our monthly gear roundup recapping the plentiful piles of goods we’ve got the most of and—what you just might be interested in snapping up.
It may be March but here in the western US, spring is not quite in sight yet. It’s buried under several feet of snow. But we’re fairly certain it’ll get here eventually, so we are contemplating upcoming river trips and desert singletrack after our long days of harvesting powder.
You’re probably in the same boat, planning upcoming gear needs for both snowsports and spring sports, so here we go—a plethora of deeply discounted outdoor gear, clothing, and accessories to make your next days out even better.
Kids’ outdoor wear
If you’ve ever shopped for kids’ outdoor clothing, you know it’s wildly overpriced for something so small (and which they’ll wear for one season before growing out of it). Geartrade truly saves the day—you can snag everything from ski/snowboard jackets to snow pants, fleeces, base layers, rain boots, snow boots, hiking shoes, swim clothes, and play clothes. Have your kiddos wear them for a season, keep them in good shape, and re-list them on Geartrade for the next family to benefit from. Done and done … That’s some waste-free, pint-sized outdoor recreation.
River and paddle gear
If you’ve spent much time on the water, you already know: you need SO MUCH STUFF for river, lake, and ocean paddle adventures. Dry bags, tie-down straps, PFDs, sun shirts, paddling gloves, wetsuits, paddles, racks, coolers, and all the do-hickeys it takes to keep your boat afloat. Thank goodness you can find nearly all of it here on Geartrade, so you can take gently-used or not-even-used UnNew goods out for your next voyage, well stocked and ready to roll.
Bike jerseys and shoes
If you bike, you need jerseys. And if you need jerseys, you know how overpriced they are in the bike shops. That’s why we’re so stoked to have an abundant supply of them here on Geartrade, for men and women, in every size and style, for both road cycling and mountain biking. Whatever your look, whether it’s a nice henley-style button down from Novara, a splashy patterned full-zip from Twin Six, a playfully bright SheBeest short-sleeve, or a sleek Louis Garneau half-zip, there’s something for you. You can also find a wide assortment of bike shoes (and pedals, too) from top brands at a sweet price.
Here’s a stat for ya: as of the moment we’re writing this, there are over 870 pairs of climbing shoes listed on Geartrade. That includes assertive sport climbing shoes, loafer-comfy multi-pitch shoes, mountaineering boots, approach shoes, and all. In every shape and style for men and for women, this plentiful stockpile of climbing shoes are ready for their future homes and future routes. Many are only lightly worn or not worn at all, and they’re from all the big name brands you already like—Five Ten, Evolv, Black Diamond, Scarpa, La Sportiva, Mammut, and Arc’teryx. Browse the goods and prepare to send.
All things ski & board
But wait! It’s still ski season! So don’t walk away from your winter gear pile yet. Right now, snowboard and ski gear and clothing are priced at a fraction of retail on Geartrade, and there’s a lot to choose from. Before the season wraps, take inventory of what you’ve beat up and need to replace ahead of the coming year. Are your glove seams coming apart? Are your goggle lenses scratched to bits? Does your favorite old base layer have a certain permanent aroma you just can’t seem to wash out of it anymore? Are your boot liners totally packed out?
All of the above (and then some) are available now on Geartrade at prices that’ll make you pre-stoked for next season. Browse our snowsports goods, get yourself properly sorted out for next winter, and spend summer knowing you’re ready to rock the moment the season kicks in.
