both have launched websites to sell used but still useful gear.  pretty interesting development. Used gear enabled me to do a lot more hiking a lot more comfortably when I was younger. I think this is a great development.

Really good news.  Equipment needs to stay in circulation. Not everyone wants to spend the money for the latest and greatest.

A Canadian company called Mountian Equipment Coop or MEC. They have been doing it for years. Called gearswap. It is a great spot for buying discontinued items.
