Gear Swap

Buy, sell or swap your outdoor gear with the MEC Gear Swap. It’s our way of encouraging people to recycle their gear. Sometimes we host swap events in store or at events – check the events site for info.


Zippers, jackets, packs, bikes, snowshoes – if it needs repairing, there’s a good chance we can help fix it (or know someone who can). Everything you buy from MEC is covered by our Rocksolid Guarantee. Make sure your gear is clean before you bring it by for us to take a look.


If you bought any of the items below at MEC, you can bring them back to our store for recycling:

  • Batteries (no broken or corroded ones please).
  • Empty LPG fuel canisters that are butane or butane-propane blends. No propane cylinders (green 1lb. or big BBQ ones) please.
  • Climbing rope – it could become dog leashes, acoustic insulation or stuffing.
