Who We Are



Ya know that feeling?  The adrenaline, the excitement of falling in love with a new activity and knowing you need more!  We value new experiences that our beautiful outdoors has to offer.  We hope our shop inspires adventures from boating on the Animas River to cross-country skiing the San Juans.  Come find gear for your next adventure at Durango Outdoor Exchange!


Durango Outdoor Exchange provides the opportunity for our community to give gear a second life.  Shopping and selling locally supports your friends and neighbors.  We’re grateful to be able to provide this opportunity to our community and look forward to meeting new friends, hearing stories and supporting all of you in your next outdoor adventures.

We also love the opportunity to support those who contribute to the health and vitality of our community.  In 2017 we started Give Back Days to provide an opportunity to learn about the exceptional non profit organizations in our community and do our part to give back.  We hope you’ll join us on the first Sunday of each month to shop for a cause and support great people doing great work!


We recognize the incredible beauty of the land in which we live, work and play.  Durango Outdoor Exchange prides itself in being a steward of the environment and we want to do all we can to reduce, reuse and recycle in the name of preservation. Buying and selling used items reduces the impact on the environment by keeping unwanted items in-use and out of landfills. Local commerce reduces carbon emissions by limiting extra transportation.  By shopping and selling with us, you’re doing your part too.

Who We Are

Hi! We are Jen and Chase LaCroix, Owners of Durango Outdoor Exchange.  We’ve lived in Durango for over ten years now and are happy to call this area home. We enjoy all that Durango and the surrounding areas have to offer and spend as much time as possible enjoying the variety of outdoor activities we’ve come to love. We welcomed our son into the world in January 2016 and are excited to encourage his sense of adventure in our vast wilderness. Hope to see you in the shop or out on the trails soon!
