About the Author
Kristin Hostetter has been Backpacker magazine's gear editor for over 15 years, during which time she has put thousands of camping and hiking products through Backpacker's rigorous gear testing program. Kristin has appeared as a gear expert on NBC’s Today, CBS’s The Early Show, and The Martha Stewart Show, among others.
Top Customer Reviews
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!
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.
