Tier One Kit – An Exchange for Old And New Gear

Tier One Kit is a new gear exchange. What makes them different is that they don’t just sell gear, but also buy and trade. That’s right, don’t have $500 for your dream GR1? Turn in your old Jansport and use it as currency! Need money for the latest collab? Sell them your old one.

It was created out of a passion for something along these lines by founder Vick JG who sold his other company Pakhook to make this happen.

    This is awesome! Great alternative to fleabay. I dropped a bunch of weight a few years ago and would have much rather had this option available to trade gear.

    the site is a hustle… the markdowns are marked up first, and are in most cases selling for the retail price or within a dollar of the actual retail price… but hey, if you like paying full price for used gear…

      I’ve been buying and selling gear on the secondary market for quite some time. The prices for the pieces on this site are more than fair for the going rate on the secondary. One must also understand that it’s a service he’s providing and one that does not come free. eBay charges fees, he charges one price. Pay or not. You’re choice. And if you think you can get the same exact piece, and I mean the same exact piece, not similar, so same color, same features, made in the USA vs made elsewhere, brand new from a retailer then please prove it, but you can’t.

    Thanks for the feature, guys!

    I know there will be tons of questions, so send em’ my way!

    @Wil, I guess it depends on the definition of “Hustle”, but at least for me, it certainly is. In the sense that building something that doesn’t quite exist is hard, and creating a “nest” for cool gear for others like me that need to be jumping around fleabay and whatnot.

    Also, we have a running 10% coupon, that applies even to MAP items. The used gear section is priced according to market, and we purchase used gear at around 60-70% of its MARKET VALUE, which by all industry standards of pre-owned gear pricing is quite high.

    Last but not least, Wil, some bags are worth MUCH more than their MSRP, not dictated by us, but by the market. If some things seem outrageous, it’s because they usually are, and unfortunately we have to play by the same rules.

    In any case, thank you all for the support as we continue to expand our inventory and clientele! You guys are all awesome 🙂
