Why we do it

Did you know that 80% of the environmental impact of new sporting goods and apparel take place before it even hits the store shelf? By choosing to buy used gear you are helping to reduce the footprint made by manufacturing. In addition, we never want the cost of gear to be a barrier to sport. We want everyone to have a chance to play their best and enjoy new sports and activities. The passion behind the business: “Release the Fleece!”

Playback Sports was born from a basement full of gear that needed to get back outside. Five years ago, I left an 8 year career at REI to release the fleece that tends to build up over time. I had seen families and sports enthusiasts investing their time and money over the years in gear that I was certain had become imprisoned in dusty basements and cold garages. I wanted to bring it all together in one place where experts could match the used gear with new users. I’m passionate about gear never becoming a barrier to sport and meet that challenge everyday. There is no greater joy for me than to see a child running with a smile, throwing a ball or achieving a goal. I love the idea that sport is not about the gear but about the mind, body, earth connection that we get from the engagement with sport.

My own children have taught me volumes about the value of high quality gear as well as about high fashion gear…everyone loves to feel like they are part of the team because they fit in. Grass stains and mud, fresh air, lint from a tennis ball, splashing water and sunshine, elements that should be part of everyone’s world.

We've noticed..."there is never an off-season."
