HOW TO REPAIR YOUR GEAR
Accidents happen and stuff breaks, but it doesn’t always have to mean the end of your gear. By repairing what is broken instead of discarding it you’ll be able to take it on more adventures while also reducing your environmental impact. That way we make the most out of what we already have. There are several repairs you can do yourself at home.
Check out our easy repair guides:
PATCH A DOWN JACKET
So, your down jacket was attacked by a stray spark from that campfire. That’s ok, because you can patch a hole in a down jacket yourself.
PATCH A SHELL GARMENT
Holes in waterproof jackets or pants are never fun but accidents do happen. Luckily, a hole can be easily fixed.
TEST THE WATERPROOFING
Before heading out on a new adventure, it’s always a good idea to check if your waterproof garment still repels water or if it’s in need of reproofing. Check out how!
REACTIVATE THE WATERPROOFING
A waterproof garment will protect you from rain and storms for many years to come. But occasionally you’ll need to wash it and reactivate its waterproofing. Take a look!
CHANGE A ZIP SLIDER
One of the most common repair questions we get is: how do I change a broken or malfunctioning zip slider myself? It’s not that difficult actually!
