REI – Used Gear

Worn Wear by Patagonia

Bonus: For many websites, if you sign into the store, add the item(s) to your cart, and wait for a day or two the site may send you a follow-up discount. Online stores will know when you’ve added to cart but not purchased, and they will try to entice you with a 10-25% off code. 

And I’ve found some great stuff at Plato’s Closet and other “stylish” used stores, like a brand new Arc-Teryx jacket for $40.

Here in South Dakota when it gets under about 30 degrees I’ll do almost all of my running wearing a giant Columbia jacket that I got at a thrift store for $10. It can be -5*F and I can wear this jacket with just a t-shirt under it and be plenty warm.

If you want brand new athletic gear that’s fairly inexpensive, Target has some great options as well!

Don’t get stuck with a useless pair of shoes – Running Warehouse.com

Nothing is more costly then spending $100 on a pair of shoes that you hate. It also must be mentioned that some sites like RWH and I believe at least Nike have great return policies. While I don’t recommend buying shoes with the intent to wear them, I know RWH will let you return a used pair of shoes for store credit. I’ve purchased 5 or so pairs from them at once and returned all but the pair that felt best while jogging on indoor carpet. RWH also apparently has non-expiration coupon codes!
