Kristin Hostetter has successfully written a book on how to fix your own gear. Heck, she even fixed my gear in this book. My trekking poles were shot after a fall in the catskills, or so I thought. I was about to trash them and spend another 200 bucks, when I saw that Kristin was looking for gear to fix for her book. I got in contact with her and before I knew it, my poles were returned almost as good as new. This isn't just a hypothetical "how to fix field problems", she actually did it. And using simple tools that everyone has.

So, I highly recommend this book for anyone who has money invested in gear and uses it. You will definitely bang your gear up sooner or later and need to do some minor repairs. Kristen gives you step-by-step, easy to follow directions. If you would rather fix your broken gear than blow more money on the same thing, you need this book!

This author has game - heck she trained the Editor in Chief in gear. She knows the people who made it, designed it, sell it - and then she takes all this gear out and tests it and knows all the others testing it. The big so what to us is that she is the book and shared it. A zillion hours spent saving, fixing and caring for gear leaves us with this fine work. Must have if you don't want to have to buy new stuff every year. Keep it working well, stay safe and save our planet and your wallet.
Peace,
Swami Nick

Well written and informative - not just a rehash of old ideas like other books on the topic. The tips and techniques presented are truly useful and eliminate the need to gather information from multiple sources. Ample illustrations throughout the entire book help to convey important points and enliven the presentation. Highly recommend!

This book has a lot of good information for hikers with damaged gear. Most fixes are easy to follow and are described well. Instead of buying new gear contribute to a cleaner earth by fixing your old reliable stuff.

The Complete Guide to Outdoor Gear Maintenance and Repair is much more than a how-to for fixing broken gear. It's a thorough reminder of the real-world scenarios you may face when a gear breakage might occur - and the unpleasant consequences of not being prepared.

The good news is that with a tiny bit of planning, and a modest expenditure on repair products, the author shows you how to take care of the majority of equipment problems you will likely ever face out in the wild.

This is not only the best 'how-to' repair book for outdoor gear, it's probably the best 'how-to' book I've ever read on any subject.

Indispensable and truly worth its weight in gold.

It really is that good.

Every time Backpacker Magazine's Gear Guide comes out, I know I can trust the information and reviews on various products. This book is one you gotta have in your collection for that same reason: Trust. I trust Kristin and her team because of the many years spent in the field testing and repairing gear. After reading this book, I took her recommendations and put together a simple repair kit to have on-hand during my trips. The book is easy to read and even average Joes like myself can follow the simple instructions. Heck, I even picked up a copy for my dad and brother. Simply put, if you spend any time camping, hiking, or just being outside, this book will have relevant information that will save you headaches and money. Job well done Backpacker!
