About Us

Outdoor Exchange began in Boise, Idaho in 2012!  Since the beginning, we have been focused on being the leader in buying and consigning high-end, gently used gear and clothing for human powered recreation.  We have continued to work hard and evolve as a company–we expanded the shop twice, expanded our team, completed franchising preparations, and are now excited to be available to customers across the country through our website & app. We are thrilled to bring our experience, quality products & process, and exceptional customer experience to the nation!

Our passion is making outdoor recreation accessible & affordable to everyone!  We focus on high-end, human powered gear and clothing for biking, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, camping, climbing, rafting, kayaking, fly fishing, surfing, and other outdoor activities.
