The Gear Closet, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is a re-sale and consignment store specializing in used outdoor gear.
We buy and sell gear for water sports, rock climbing, camping and backpacking, snow sports, and bicycling among others…
All profits go to fund clean water activities and summer camps
for TenneSEA Kids 4 Clean Water.
We accept outdoor gear of all shapes and sizes.
From kayaks and backpacks to climbing shoes and chalk bags, life jackets and paddles to snorkels and swim fins, if it’s something you’ve considered giving away or throwing out, chances are good that someone else would love to give it a second life.
Got a big camping trip coming up and you don’t have any gear? Don’t spend hundreds for one weekend. Come here first and see what we have!
Thinking about trying out a new sport and don’t want to invest a lot in it until you know you like it?
This is the place for you!
