Used gear is awesome, especially when you can get it refurbished from the manufacturer – like you can from Patagonia and REI. And now there’s a big new name getting onboard this new trend, as The North Face has just announced their Renewed used gear shop.
Available via a dedicated website, Renewed is your chance to get your hands on some truly exceptional outdoor gear on the cheap. Whether you need a hardcore raincoat, hiking shorts, a puffy vest, or any number of other technical pieces, you can now get them at a fraction of the cost. But they’re not just hand-me-downs either, as each piece goes through factory refurbishment, making them as good as new. Right now, the service appears to be limited solely to apparel, but we imagine the categories will expand as the service takes off. Pricing starts as low as $18.
