GearedUp will become a community marketplace where outdoor adventurers and travelers benefit from each other (as well as participating businesses) by connecting to exchange goods, outdoor skills or trip planning services.   The platform will be free to join as a member, create posts, and search all categories.  Connections will be made based on your current location, or based on the location of where you intend to travel.  GearedUp will utilize a secure and insured payment mechanism to allow users to complete their transactions related to renting, buying, selling gear, and paying for skill based services or custom trip itineraries/ guides.  The intention is to connect with and allow the outdoor adventure community to leverage each others' resources in order to improve access to accessibility no matter your location and decrease some of the burdens of adventure related travels... and of course getting people enjoying the world around them!

Businesses (outfitters, retailers, guides, etc) will also participate the marketplace, further increasing the availability and helping reduce the costs of what is necessary for the outdoor adventurer.

As an additional component, we plan to  allow users to share their experiences to their social media utilizing gear, skills, or services obtained through the application as a type of “real-time” review.  By sharing users will earn chances to win predetermined prizes relating to their outdoor and travel adventures.
