The Gear Closet is a re-sale and consignment store specializing in outdoor gear located in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

We buy and sell new and gently used gear for water sports, rock climbing, camping and backpacking, snow sports, cycling and much more! When you shop at The Gear Closet, not only do you get great deals, but you also are supporting our non-profit efforts! All profits go to fund clean water activities and educational camps for TenneSEA Kids 4 Clean Water. It’s a win, win!

We receive gear daily so check in soon and often for great deals!


Do you have some large ticket items that you want to sell? Bring them to us to sell for you. We take a percentage to support Kids 4 Clean Water, and the rest goes to you. Make money from your unused goods and help a worthy cause, all at the same time!


We accept outdoor gear of all shapes and sizes. From kayaks and backpacks to climbing shoes and chalk bags, outdoor clothing to bikes and tents, you can donate it here! You’ll receive a receipt for your donation for your tax purposes.


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!


Join us on Saturday, April 21st for Chattanooga's 11th Annual Gear Swap & Outdoor Expo. This is your chance to get great deals on gently used gear from The Gear Closet and local outdoor Enthusiasts. If you are interested in having a booth to sell your wares or spread your organization's love of the great outdoors, rent a 10X10 space for $20. For more info email or call the Gear Closet 423-413-3298. The event is free and open to the public so invite all your friends!

Each exhibitor will be responsible for the setting up and breaking down of their area, and making sure no trash left behind afterwards! The event will happen rain or shine, however, in the unfortunate case that the weather is dangerous then it will be cancelled. Setup will begin at 8:30AM and no booth should be taken down until 2PM once the event is over.
