Arc'teryx has launched Rock Solid Used Gear, a “repurposing hub” that tries to extend product life and thereby reduce the company's environmental footprint. The Canadian outdoor brand will be buying back used gear, cleaning and repairing it, and reselling it at a discount. In the U.S., customers can either take their used gear to an Arc'teryx store or use the online mail-in portal. In exchange for gear that the company deems lightly worn or in excellent condition, with the inner label still attached, customers will receive a gift card worth 20 percent of the product's original retail price. Gear that is functional but cannot be resold will be donated. Customers may also trade in products for different sizes or colors. The company is looking into circular techniques, such as repurposing and upcycling, but they remain ambitions for now. For more information, visit
