Where to sell your old non-UL gear?
Since everyone here seems to be constantly shedding pack weight, where do you sell your previous generation of gear that's too heavy for this forum?I know of Geartrade but are there any other such websites? (haven't been having much luck with geartrade so far despite low prices..)
If you do not need the money, consider donating the items to those who would be glad to receive and use the items.
+1 Ed's remarks -- Whiteblaze.net has a Pay It Forward box thread going in its For Sale forum. Who knows, you might just find something that you can use as well as contributing to the joy of others.
Timely thread (aren't they all timely?).I just decided to sell two REI packs that there is no market for here.Thanks!
thanks for those suggestions.. just now I'm trying to sell an osprey kestrel pack that's barely 6 months old and was used for 3 - 4 days. I'll consider donations for other stuff..I found the whiteblaze used gear forum but need to have 30 posts on whiteblaze before i can sell there... will take a few days!On the other hand, backpacking.net doesnt really seem to have any sort of used gear forum.. am i missing something? they sell gear but can't see a place where I can sell mine.craigslist is pretty useless in NJ for this sort of thing in my experience.. maybe if i had a gas mask to sell..
Unless it's really heavy —There are several levels of shedding weight which has allowed me to buy plenty of great gear on this forum as the prior owners have decided to try other gear, sometimes not so much lighter, but just different.
There are some of us just getting started that would enjoy something you thought to heavy. post'em up. ya never know what we may need
There are also some scout leaders here who can use even the non-UL gear.
> There are also some scout leaders here who can use even the non-UL gear.+1. I'd be one of those. :)
why not give them a try...you're in NJ with some great hikes not far off....maybe a youth coordinator could use them?
I just sold a nine pound tent here. Free to try, you never know.
Put it up on ebay for sure.
I have had several people on BPL donate "heavy" gear to my Boy Scout troop. A 5 lb tent is a dream for them.
