How does that work? When you buy gear though custom affiliate links on this blog, the companies listed below contribute a small portion back to this site, at no additional cost to you. This means I may receive a small commission from your purchase. Feel free to bookmark this page for future use. Your support helps cover operating costs and lets me know that you find value in the content shared here, and that is SO APPRECIATED!  Thank you! 

I get excited about new gear and bringing you the deals, but also care about consumption and reducing my environmental impact. While I like to post about the gear I love and depend on…I love that companies are hosting buy back and used gear sales too! So, before you get to shopping, be sure to wear out, repair and squeeze as much life as you can out of the gear you have, and when you need something new, check out some of these used and re-used resources below!

REI – “Buying used might seem like a small thing, but little by little, it’ll make a big impact on this place we call home.”

Patagonia Worn Wear – “Worn Wear is Patagonia’s hub for keeping gear in play.”

Repair Lair – “unfill the landfill”


Affiliate/Brand Partners:


Most of the gear I use is purchased out of my own pocket (usually on sale!), and I occasionally receive products that are provided free or in exchange for content (photography, writing, etc). I am not obligated to review these items and strive to provide transparent, honest reviews, only recommending products that I would use myself.  All opinions are my own and I hope you will find them helpful in your own adventures!

Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for your support!
