Peak Climbing Gear and Equipment costs can be cut down

Do you know Gear costs for peak climbing can be cut in many ways? Most of the trekkers, hikers, and climbers don’t want to spend much money on gear because besides it they need to pay for other costs such as food, accommodation, transportation, and crew members. These days you can find a lot of mountain gear brands in the market but you must know what to buy and what not to? Below you will find some secret tips for saving your cost on gear and equipment.  

  1. Rent Gear and Equipment
    Gear and equipment rental shops are available in Thamel, Kathmandu. It is a great way to check your size before purchasing them. Renting gear will save your cost because most of the good-quality gears are expensive.

  2. Borrow Gear from Friends
    If you have a good friend circle who are engaged in trekking and mountaineering field then it is the right time to ask for help from them by borrowing their gear. This will be the best option to save more on gear without paying a single penny.  

  3. Buy Second Hand
    There are trekkers and mountaineers who had made a trip to the mountain once but have used gear and equipment which are expensive. They don’t want to just give away instead they are willing to sell them at a lower price.  

  4. Become a brand ambassador
    These days there are many influencers who had great profiles on social media like Facebook, Instagram, and youtube. If you own a good social media profile then this is a good opportunity to deal with some branded gear companies as Brand ambassadors. Being a brand ambassador not only gets free gear but some even earn commissions in addition.
