October Gear Roundup: Shred Prep is a GO.

It’s October, and we have a lot to say. Mainly because October means almost winter, and we have visions of powderplums dancing in our heads. Not only do we have plenty of amazing summer and fall gear in supply, but also it’s time to get jazzed about ski/board season.

Meanwhile, for your fall biking, camping, and hiking adventures, you can swoop on all the amazing seller listings and consignment items currently lining our shelves, including a fantastic array of backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, and bike accessories. You need to make the most of these last warm days. Because the wondrous cold season is coming.

Let the ski and snowboard plunder begin. 

We’ve been waiting months to say it: it’s officially time to gear up for ski season. We’re doing happy dances, snow dances, all the dances. Because there are a TON of excellent skis, boards, boots, helmets, bindings, and goggles on Geartrade right now. All the big and beloved brands are represented, and there’s pretty much something for everyone, whether you need a ski/binding setup for your kiddo, a park and pipe rig, an upgrade to your goggle/helmet combo, or powder-surfing sticks for the deepest days. Savvy skiers and boarders, your moment has come. Suit up.

Tents to cozy up in. 

If you’ve been remotely considering a new tent, the time is now. We’ve got everything from big car-camping tents that can accommodate several people all the way down to tiny ultralight backpacking tents, portable sun shades, and even those fancy car rooftop tents the kids are digging these days. It’s all much cheaper than retail price, so you can easily afford to upgrade your tent situation or expand your quiver.

Backpacks fit for adventure. 

Call us gear nerds (we are), but it’s hard to have too many backpacks. It’s wonderful to have a backpack specially made for its purpose, whether it’s day-hiking, climbing, ski touring, backpacking, mountain biking, or trail running. Whether you need a great big expedition pack or a minimalist running vest, chances are we’ve got the perfect thing. All our gently used and consignment packs are in great shape, while we also have many never-been-used packs that simply need to be cleared off brands’ shelves, including great ones from Osprey, Black Diamond, Gregory, and more.

Sleeping bags and pads for smoother slumber. 

A better sleeping bag is a wise investment in your much-needed sleep, but an excellent bag or pad can cost a pretty penny. At least, that’s the case when you’re buying full retail. When you browse the excellent barely-used bags listed at this moment, you can finally get psyched to pick up the zero-degree bag you’ve always wanted, or the lightweight summer bag, or the nice thick ultralight inflatable pad you’ve dreamt of. Right now, we have excellent items from brands like Marmot, Kelty, The North Face, Big Agnes, and others. Get ‘em while they’re hot.

While you’re on the site, think about what you want to sell. 

Gear purchases are easy to fund when you sell some stuff off, too! Remember, you can now either list things on our site the traditional way (the DIY method), or simply mail the items to us to list for you and sell for you consignment-style.

Either way, your old gear goes to a new home and keeps bringing smiles to new faces. And, you get paid. Everyone wins.
