We all like new gear, even if it's only new to us. And getting some money back for your old equipment helps justify your new purchase! Who needs eBay - advertise here! (Private sellers only - no businesses please)

If you're after a piece of kit and want to save money, consider posting here to see if an LFTO member can help you out. New gear can be expensive, and there's a lot of great old gear out there.

Group walks
Although walking alone has its benefits, most of us like to share our adventures. This is the place to join others or invite fellow walkers to join you. Who knows, you may make some friends for life.

Outdoor loving northerner who walks, climbs and scrambles up pretty much everything, so all gear gets a proper battering. Also loves dogs, specifically angry jack russell terriers.

Height: 5ft 7in/170cm
Typical size: Small

Mountain Leader qualified and lover of Snowdonia. Kit gets scraped and scuffed on scrambling terrain and rained on (a lot). A pretty standard size, outdoor gear usually fits well.

Loves spikey, rocky, high places, being slightly out of his comfort zone and still gets excited by snow. Broad shoulders often cause problems with sleeve length resulting in cold wrists.
