How to prep your gear

Follow these steps to make sure your gear is sellable

Step 1: Clean your Gear - Smelly and dirty gear can’t be sold!

Softgoods like shirts, jackets, and pants

  • Give the items a careful inspection for any tears or stains, and when you wash, pay special attention to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Special treatments like Nikwax can be a great idea to give waterproof goods a nice refresh.

Footwear like running shoes, hiking boots, and climbing shoes

  • Rinse the shoes and use a light brush to remove any dirt.
  • If the insoles can be removed, give them a wash in soapy water and dry.
  • Make sure to de-stink them—smelly items can't be sold, so make sure they come to us fresh! Antibacterial spray can help, and you can put baking powder inside while drying them.

Hiking and camping equipment like tents, sleeping bags, and pads

  • Make sure all parts are in working order, and replace or fix anything that isn't.
  • If needed, set up the tent to make sure you have everything (and to air it out). Brush off any dirt or sand.
  • Don't forget to include stuff sacks.

Helmets for biking, climbing, and skiing/boarding

  • After cleaning, inspect to make sure there aren't any cracks or substantial dents. We do not accept helmets over 5 years old. Make sure the date is visible on the helmet.

Winter hardgoods like skis, snowboards, boots, and bindings

  • We do not accept alpine ski bindings over 5-7 years old. When bindings fail to pass DIN tests, the binding becomes non-indemnified and can't be mounted as they are no longer considered safe.
  • Fix damage like scratches to your ski bases. (We can't accept items with catastrophic damage like blown edges, topsheet delamination, etc.)
  • Buckle ski/board boots before shipping—and make sure they aren't smelly. (See tips under “Footwear” for de-smelling.)

Bikes and bike parts

  • Make sure all bikes/bike parts are clean and in working order.
  • For components, make sure all parts are sent

Paddle, wake, and surf

  • Note, we aren't accepting boats/watercraft currently. (Shipping's a bugger.)
  • We are accepting clean, fully functional wetsuits, drytops, life jackets, paddle clothing, water shoes, and accessories.
