There’s no reason to toss a perfectly good jacket, or tent, or sleeping bag because of a jammed zipper or a burn or tear. These battle wounds can be repaired out in the field … if you’re prepared.

Spring is springing here in Utah, and we have to say, we’re amped up. With the longer days come the possibility for “Utah triathlons,” in which we can combine multiple sports like skiing, running, biking, or climbing all in one glorious day—and still have enough light for a sunset beer.
As you go through your gear pile to start switching from winter sports to warm-weather adventures, you’ll spy a few things that could use replacing—or that you might want to list and sell on Geartrade to fund other cool gear.
Hurray, biking season is here! In normal years, this would be a great time to upgrade some components on your existing bike or head into your local bike shop to spring for a brand new bike. But, nothing is normal and, in case you haven’t heard, there is a bike shortage. Whether you’re looking for a new or used mountain bike or road bike, upgraded components, or replacement parts, you’re likely to encounter delays … or just a total lack of availability.
In other words, if you have an UnNew bike or UnNew bike gear haunting your house, now is the time to sell!
What does “ski mountaineering” mean exactly? We’re so glad you asked! It’s one of our favorite things to talk about because it combines skiing, large mountains, and logistics.
Use the practice of sustainability to strengthen your empathy muscles beyond the environment, enveloping all humans in your wake. We are stronger together, and together we are as naturally diverse as the plains and mountains and rivers and oceans on this planet. Invite people into the journey with you, it’s much more fun with friends new and old anyway.
