What is a sample? Outdoor industry Sales Representatives must often purchase the entire product line of manufacturers that they represent in order to show retailers, like us, the next season's offerings. When they are done, they must sell off these entire sample sets. We consolidate sample sets nationally from our partners who represent top brands like Patagonia and Marmot and purchase them at a substantial discount below wholesale pricing. We then pass on these savings to our customers who get amazing gear at rock-bottom prices- often 40% to 60% off of retail. Everyone wins!
