Gear on the Cheap

Got an e-mail from Gear Samples.com about what they do. Pretty cool deal.

I suspect you meet a number of people who are just getting started on the slopes and we both know that the gear can be expensive. My wife and I run a small website that sells new sales rep samples from Marmot, Cloudveil, and Arc'Teryx for 40%-70% off retail. I'd appreciate it if you'd check it out at: www.gearsamples.com and if so inclined recommend it to folks.

If you know anything about sales reps, it is that if you play it right and they think you are worth the trouble, they have all kinds of cool free stuff to hand out. Maybe it is pens or some other cheesy promotional item. I get stuff all the time from folks that want me to pimp for them on my site. Note that I don't do a lot of pimping on my site. I try stuff out and will shill for stuff that rocks like the Colorado pass, ski discount sites, and things of that nature.

I checked out the prices and this is a great way to save some cash. Lots of folks sell their samples on e-Bay for almost full retail and usually, the samples that come out are for stuff that has not even been released yet and is the next year's model. Check out the site.
