Gear I use for backpacking and filming is mostly purchased from craigslist boulder and thrift stores. I shop in these areas for outdoor gear because the people in this area update their gear every year and have good money, so I try to find last years gear for cheap in areas like this.

    Great place for an hour or so hike. Dogs not allowed. No shade so wear a hat. Go to the second entrance, it is a lot less crowded.
