GT: The January Gear Roundup
We’re joyfully welcoming the new year here at Geartrade, catching our breath after a huge holiday rush that sent UnNew gear near and far for folks across the country to enjoy! Now that the dust is settling, we’re taking time to enjoy the wintry wonderland outside.
The resort snowpacks are beautifully deep and backcountry conditions are poppin’. Everyone from winter runners to snowshoers to nordic skiers to powder cruisers are all savoring the stormy start to the new year. It’s the perfect time to take inventory of all the activities we’re grateful for—and assess what gear and clothing we’re in need of mid-winter!
Whether you’re in need of a new pair of ski boots, a set of snowshoes for forest walks with the pup, or a “going-out” fleece that looks sharper (and smells fresher) than your ski touring fleece, you’re in the right place. Here are a few things we have tons of on Geartrade right now.
Ski boots for men, women, and kiddos
A month into the season, what are your feet noticing? Are your old boots too banged up, packed out, or ill-fitting? It might be time to have a look at the hundreds of UnNew ski boots listed on Geartrade right now, from beloved brands like Solomon, Nordica, Atomic, Lange, Technica, Rossignol, and Dalbello. Whatever brand fits your foot best is probably listed—often with heat-moldable liners you can custom tailor to your tootsies. (And did you know that heat-molded liners can be reshaped more than once? That means even a used boot liner can be adapted once again just for you!)

Snowshoes for the softest and snowiest walks
Snowshoeing fans, this is your moment—much of the country is covered in fluff, and we love to see it. New snowshoes can cost an arm and a leg, so we’re pleased to have quite a few pairs available on Geartrade right now! However small or large, ultralight or low-tech, is up to you. Whatever pair you snag, snowshoes will open up a new world of winter walks. Take ‘em out with a close friend or family member, or use a snowy adventure to tire out your kiddo or doggo.
Here’s a hot-ticket item! Backcountry ski touring is more popular than ever, yet you practically have to sell a kidney to afford a setup at retail price. Hence the beauty of UnNew here on Geartrade. We have a stellar variety of backcountry touring skis sold *with* bindings (!) ready to rock and roll. They’re the name-brand, in-demand skis you probably already had on your shopping list, from the likes of DPS, Nordica, Dynafit, Black Diamond, K2, Black Crows, Atomic, and more. Go fat, go skinny, go one-ski-quiver. Whatever your style of backcountry shredding, your new steeds await.
Fleeces for fashion and function
Fleeces are an all-time fave because they serve every purpose in the book, nearly year-round. In winter, they’re in hotter demand than ever. Right now, we’ve got a plethora of performance fleeces you can layer on for cold-weather cardio from brands like Ortovox, Jack Wolfskin, La Sportiva, and more. We also have huge heaps of plushy-soft, fluffy fleeces that feel great after you ski or ride, including classics from Patagonia, The North Face, Mountain Hardwear, and more. Zip in to something glorious—you can afford a full fleece library at these UnNew prices.
