How do we categorize/grade our surplus? We strive to make this as simple as possible. grading system consists of a multi-step process to sort and classify our surplus goods into an easy to understand format. We inspect each item for wear, damage, and appearance to assure our customers are getting the quality gear they deserve. This system allows choice as to what will suit them best.
A = Excellent is the top of the line. This will also include any like new, or unissued gear. We want to provide our customers with the possible product, an\t the best possible prices. Doing so, we pay a bit more to get the best there is. All surplus is by definition a used item, but these have been checked and are as close to new condition as you will find short of paying full price from the original manufacturer.
B = Good is where the wear of the items are staring to show. These products have plenty of life left in them. There many be some slight issues with staining, minor frays, small tears, and other minor cosmetic issues. These are great for our customers who will use the products and do not mind a few imperfections, and additional savings! All zippers and drawstrings are inspected and are in good working order.
C = Fair is our lowest grade. These products have more noticeable issues with overall wear and tear. These are still useful items, but are far from new condition. These are perfect to tuck away in your car, Bail out bag or let the kids overnight in the back yard. Zippers still function well and there may be minor frays or small tears but overall functions as they should.
*DISCLAIMER* We sell military surplus!
All Government surplus including military surplus should be considered used. New or Like New is more than likely out of the package/issued, but left unused. Please take this into consideration before buying, on that note we do physically inspect all elements and ensure you are getting a very usable product.
