Backcountry Pursuit does everything right. My experience was nothing short of awesome! I ended up purchasing a bike from them and they hooked me up with such a good deal, along with great customer service. After making a purchase I went to them to sell my bike as well, after I saw how they interacted with their selling and buying of merchandise. Within 2 weeks they had my bike sold for the price I needed, and were great with communication during the whole process. I would highly recommend them from a buyer, or seller standpoint!
NEVER BUY ANYTHING NEW AGAIN! This place is awesome. I find all of my gear here, and I sell all of my gear here (you know, the gear that is replaced by the gear that I buy here!). The dudes that work up front are personable, friendly and tell it like it is. They have lots of knowledge on the gear itself as well as where to go use it. This place makes any other consignment shop feel like a ripoff. If you haven't already, check these guys out!
Seriously- the customer service doesn't get any better! The staff was friendly, very patient and SO helpful! I went in there without a clue as to what I needed for a bike rack with a car impossible to fit one on. They not only had one that matched the color of my car perfectly (a pretty unique shade) but came out and put it on for me, patiently explaining all the parts so that I may be able to do it on my own. The price was just right- a steal considering the customer service it came with. Thanks Backcountry Pursuit! This is one happy customer that will keep coming back. No wonder you came so highly recommended!
I've had a great experience consigning here! They are courteous, professional and the process is a piece of cake. With other shops I find myself wondering if my stuff has sold, but with Backcountry I don't have to wonder because they send email updates out to their consigners monthly. Great place and I highly recommend them!
This is a great used outdoor gear store. They consign your stuff that you don't need any longer, and sell you good stuff too. I brought two carloads of kayaking and camping gear in, and it hasn't even been a week, and most of it has sold.
I was especially impressed with the clothing selection. I've always had a tendency to only buy new, but that is a mistake when used prices on really high quality items are so much better. Especially from such a good store like this. From now on, I'll always hit this place up first when I need something. If you are the kind of person who is accustomed to handing over your entire paycheck to REI, try this place first
The guys that work here are great and friendly. They seem to know about everything I ask them about. I go to both locations because you never know what you will find. Downtown store is handy right next to the library and the Eagle store is right next to Chicago Connection. I go there before heading to REI, etc. Give them a try!
I live near Eagle so shop and sell at that location. The items are in great condition and prices are really in anyone's budget for quality used items. I have taken many items there to sell (ie kayak, a ski rack, hiking pants) and everything has sold!! The staff is friendly and helpful. I could not recommend a better place to shop locally!!
Wow, this place is great, pretty close to my ideal store. Excellent selection of gently used camping gear for prices comparable or better than eBay/Amazon, and you can try things on/see & hold them before purchase. They also have bikes (not cheap in quality or price) white water kayaks, clothes, snorkel gear, climbing gear, and other outdoor adventure equipment.
