About Us

We at Backcountry Gear Exchange are like you. We work a 9-5 and spend the rest outside. As proud American conservationists, we believe in leaving no trace, abundant public lands, and the North American Wildlife Conservation Model. Operating on a budget, we scoured the web for years searching for deals on great brands to outfit our expeditions in the mountains. Although there were hundreds of forums, Facebook gear pages, scattered listings across eBay, and classified ads that people were using to sell gear, there was no one stop solution dedicated to providing serious outdoorsmen and women a marketplace. That’s what motivated us to design this platform: consolidating the outdoor community’s online gear market and allowing people to buy and sell the equipment necessary to face whatever nature throws at them.
