Quick Gear Tip


I’m a sucker for good deals. I just can’t get enough of ’em. And when I find a new way to get good deals, I can’t help but pass along that delicious knowledge.

I’ve been on the lookout for some good winter clothing in prep for some snowshoeing and winter camping, and in the process I have discovered the “new without tags” option in ebay. Basically, this is brand new stuff that can’t be returned because the tag was taken off or lost, so it sells for a fraction of the retail value. I’ll be honest, I’m completely new to this, so I’m not sure of the extent of the good deals to be had, but so far I have bought 2 patagonia jackets. Both have been flawless and I got the first one at 60% of the retail price and the second one was 40% off of retail! Not bad I’d say.

I’d love to hear anyone else’s experience using this option on ebay or any other great tips you have!
