Top customer reviews
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.
She includes many routine cleaning and maintenance tips that will keep your equipment in good repair for many years to come. I have been hiking and backpacking for over 40 years. I am taking another look at my old, but still serviceable equipment to see about revitalizing it, and getting it back into use.
