Where to sell hiking gear?

Post by thehikingdude » July 23rd, 2022, 8:31 am

Hey Gang, my hiking and backpacking days were left behind years ago. Knees can't take it anymore. It's time to sell all my gear. Looks like people aren't selling much through here. Any other suggestions?

You could sure post it here, someone like me who lurked for about 10 years before making an account might buy something just on the basis that that piece of gear was owned by a PH legend. ;)

"Gear swap" on backpackinglight.com has a bunch of gear sold. But you have to pay some fee to be able to post.

I think you can read without a payment to get an idea of whats there

I've never bought or sold myself so I can't recommend it, but I've read a lot of people that have done it

Craigslist still works. Geartrade. Register on NW Hikers maybe - their sale forum seems a little more active than ours.

The Facebook marketplace has been surprisingly good for selling gear locally for me. For other things I have used Facebook groups to sell random things and Im sure there are huge Facebook groups for hiking and hiking gear.
