SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (October 3, 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – For those gearing up for winter adventure, Geartrade (geartrade.com), the outdoor marketplace for UnNew gear and apparel, has refreshed their inventory with recent UnNew arrivals from their October featured partner at DPS.

The latest arrivals from DPS are part of an ongoing relationship that re-sells items such as sales samples and closeout products through the online marketplace. By partnering with Geartrade, DPS is lengthening the lifespan for their products, reducing the carbon footprint created by new gear purchases, and increasing their brand market share among active outdoor enthusiasts.

Every product on Geartrade is thoroughly examined and rated for quality, and each listing includes detailed descriptions of visible wear or other material issues. Once posted, discounts from the product’s original retail price can be as deep as 90% off, though the average discount in the marketplace is 55%.

“Our audience at Geartrade loves brands like DPS, as they are true leaders in the outdoor industry when it comes to making exceptional performance pieces that hold their value,” said Aaron Provine, president of Geartrade.

DPS (www.dpsskis.com) designs the world’s most advanced ski products by fusing space-age carbon technology

with groundbreaking shapes. DPS is responsible for the world’s first and only pure pre-impregnated carbon fiber sandwich ski, the first 120mm-waisted powder pintail, and the first rockered ski with sidecut.

Used gear purchases and sales are steadily growing in popularity, based on Geartrade internal metrics. Compared to 2021, Geartrade gross sales from individual sellers are up more than 50% year-to-date through the start of September, and up 82% in the last three months. That growth is fueled directly by a steepening growth in listings – up 56% since January, up 90% in the last three months, and up 152% in the month of August.

A contributor to the recent boom of Geartrade listings is the simplicity of their consignment service, an Easy Button for sellers of used gear which includes delivery of a free postage-paid box and a concierge service that receives, evaluates, photographs and posts all product sales on behalf of the seller.
