Used Gear

Buying used camping equipment can be a great alternative to buying new, since camping gear is often used only a time or two before someone decides to get rid of it. There are several places on the Web for buying and selling used outdoor equipment. The following list contains most of the top sites.

A few sites offer only used gear, while others are auction sites that list used and new items offered from individuals as well as large companies.

You can usually find used tents, used backpacks, used sleeping bags and more. We recommend that you start with the more well-known sites (such as eBay) and use reasonable caution when dealing with new or international sellers.

eBay
The biggest and best. Ebay is a fantastic marketplace for both new and used products. Both individuals and companies sell on Ebay.
