Used Hiking and Backpacking Gear

Buying or selling used gear? Buying equipment that is suitably broken-in can be a great alternative to buying new. Hiking equipment and backpacks are often used once or twice and then put up for sale. There are several places on the Web for buying and selling used outdoor equipment. The following list contains many of the best sites. Some sites list only used gear, while others are auction sites that list used and new. We recommend that you start with the more well-known sites (such as eBay) and use reasonable caution when dealing with unknown sellers.

If you are looking for climbing equipment, however, we recommend that you opt for new gear rather than used gear. I would want to know the complete history of any piece of climbing gear I’m using. I don’t want my climb compromised by a piece of equipment that has been unduly stressed, dropped, or mishandled. We recommend that for critical pieces of equipment, new is better.

eBay
Lists thousands and thousands of outdoor items. A great place to find a great deal. By far the best site on this list.

Used Outdoor Gear

The biggest place to get used gear is still eBay. They have such a wide offering of constantly changing items. If you haven’t been there before, all you have to do is register with them (it’s free and painless — it took me only a minute) and then you are all set to browse, bid or sell.
