The Gear Closet

We sell new and gently used gear for water sports, rock climbing, camping and backpacking, snow sports, cycling and much more! When you shop at The Gear Closet, not only do you get great deals, but you also are supporting our non-profit watershed conservancy! All profits go to fund clean water activities and educational camps for WaterWays. It’s a win, win!

The Gear Closet is WaterWays’ used outdoor gear store, located right across from the Riverwalk on Riverside Drive. All proceeds from the store fund our current projects and educational programming.


By reducing, reusing, and re-gearing, we’re keeping waste out of landfills and getting people outside.
