Ready to give your gently used gear a second chance? Survival of the Gear wants to help you sell it — and it’s a simple, fair, and sustainable process for everyone.
When you consign with us, several good things happen:
- Your gear gets to stay in action longer
- You do a beautiful thing for the planet by cutting down consumption and giving existing things more use
- Your fellow outdoors-people can buy the gear they need, for less
- You get cash and/or store credit, which you can use to treat yourself to something new-to-you
We’ve answered a few of the most frequently asked questions below to help clear up any confusion.
What is gear consignment?
We like to think of our consignment program as a mutually beneficial partnership between you and Survival of the Gear. We sell your used gear on your behalf and share the profits.
Our extremely knowledgeable team will assess your items to ensure they meet our standards, then determine a fair selling price and expertly market the gear to our incredibly relevant audience of outdoor enthusiasts.
Once your item sells, we either write you a check or give you store credit, depending on your preference.
What kind of gear do you accept?
Survival of the Gear specializes in seasonal outdoor adventure gear, apparel, footwear, and accessories. Our focus is on the things you need to get outside and enjoy hiking, mountaineering, camping/backpacking, climbing, paddling, disc golf, and cycling.
When it comes to apparel, we prefer high-quality outdoor brands including (but not limited to) REI, Patagonia, Arcteryx, The North Face, Outdoor Research, MSR, Prana, Black Diamond, Keen and more.
When we say “gently used” we mean that items must be clean, operational, and in good condition. If you’re consigning a tent or a sleeping pad, rest assured it will be set up and tested before it’s listed.
