[Ongoing] Show & Tell: Gear Closet

There’s no better feeling than heading down to your local outdoor retailer to buy a new piece of gear, whether for an upcoming trip or to stay up to date on the latest and greatest in the outdoor industry.
Nowadays, buying and using the gear is only part of the fun. The popularity of organized gear closets created by publications and social media like Outside Magazine and Instagram has sparked a new trend in showing off your gear in the way you organize and store it.
Whether it’s for show or purely organization, or both, post your personal gear closet photos below. It’s a great way to see what each other has and how we all prep for trips!
Check out the below article from Outside Magazine showcasing some of the country’s top gear closets.

Wouldnt call it a closet... more of a gear blob
Conspicuous consumption much?...
Some of those pictures looks like they are from shops.
40 years of collecting, don't tell the wife.
These two pics are over the top! Do they get outside to show off their gear or show off their gear to maybe get outside? The two posts with bins and garage storage are definitely more real!
nothing wrong with being super organized while making it look nice, if I had space like that in my house I'd have my gear organized just like that
My gear pile as neatly organized as it gets.
Wow, people are liking my gear pile! Thanks for the likes. I would have never imagined that this would garner so much attention-lol!
I am going to need to expand on this initial "teaser" picture... but this is my gear loft. I use bins rather than baskets like what was in the OP because I don't want to have to dust my gear off. I am moving the bags and quilts to hangers next week though. Let me know if any of you wanna see what is in any of the bins. ;)

I'm not sure if you do much climbing or canyoneering, but it's good practice not to keep climbing rated carabiners with non-climbing carabiners. This reduces the risk of putting your life in the hands of a carabiner that can only hold a few pounds. Not sure if this pertains to you, but I thought I'd put it out there.
I’ve actually been in a conversation with someone about that very thing before. I use the caribeaners for hammocks and bear bags primarily. We did use them for climbing on some rocks a few times but since I’m not very experienced in that I’ve taken extra caution not to mix them up.
That said... since this is the 2nd time someone has mentioned it to me. I might need to make a change since it’s actually good advice.
Thanks for reminding me. :)
