Kit Swap at Alpkit Bristol


Kit swap. Exchange unwanted items for something you will use

Join us at Alpkit Bristol on August 10th for our Kit Swap event. Keep your unwanted kit going, bring it down and swap for something you really need instead!

Have you got unwanted or unused kit that you would like to swap for something else from a like-minded person? Would you like to freshen up you kit cupboard but in a responsible and sustainable way?

Everyone is welcome so if you have any items of outdoor gear or clothing that you no longer need you can come and swap it for something you do need. Bring your unwanted kit in exchange for swap tokens, or just bring yourself and purchase swap tokens on the night (£5 each) with the money going to Alpkit Foundation. The number of tokens given for each item donated will vary based on item type and condition. These tokens can then be swapped for other donated items. 

*Please note : the swap will work by a token system - if you don’t use all your tokens this time you can save them for a future swap.

Any leftover kit will be donated to the Continuum Project, where we pass unwanted gear and clothes on to groups or charities who will in turn give them directly to someone who needs them for going nice places & doing good things. Occasionally, when a garment is deemed no longer fit for purpose, it will be donated to scientific research projects relating to the outdoor industry and up/down-cycling projects.

If you cannot make it to the event then you can still donate at any of our stores. More information about the Continuum can be found here.

The kit swap will start at 6.30pm on the 10th of August and will last for approximately 3 hours.

The perfect excuse to de-clutter!
