Changing Gear

Sports, Outdoor gear Consignment and Rentals

New and Used Consignment Sporting Goods.

ChangingGear was started in August of 2016 to meet the need for gently used sporting goods and outdoor gear to be reused in our community. One of our main goals at ChangingGear is to prevent these items from being sent to the landfill. We do this by providing an opportunity for our community to find lower cost gear so that they can pursue their sport and outdoor activities.


The core of the business at ChangingGear is sports and outdoor gear consignment. We do accessorize with new items around the core to provide an option for our customers to fill any gaps in used consignment.

Outdoor Gear Rentals

In the summer of 2018 we saw a need for outdoor gear rentals as we felt this aligned with our goals of reusing gear and also drops some barriers to entry for outdoor pursuits.

Chilkoot Trail

Our outdoor gear rentals bring in many Chilkoot Trail hikers and we are always pleased to chat about conditions and experiences on the trail.

Skate Sharpening

At ChangingGear we are very lucky to work with Konn at Skatemasters mobile to provide consistent, quality sharpening. This is a dropoff and pickup service – as long as skates are into the store by 4:30pm they will be ready the next morning at 10 am.

About Us

ChangingGear had been a long time coming. The idea for Changing Gear was developed by Patrick Jackson. Originally the store was only going to deal with outdoor gear but has since evolved into sporting goods. About 2 years ago I purchased the business from Patick and added some different inventory plus increased some hockey items. So many people and businesses have been instrumental in getting ChangingGear off the ground for Patrick.
