Backpacker Complete Guide to Outdoor Gear Maintenance and Repair: Step-By-Step Techniques to Maximize Performance and Save Money (Backpacker Magazine)by Kristin Hostetter
Synopses & Reviews
If youre a hiker or camper, you need this book. Why? Because you love your gear and depend on it to make your trips comfortable and safe. In the field stuff happens, and knowing how to cope can be the difference between a great trip and a miserable one. Plus, your gear should last many years, but only if you know how to keep it working properly.
This book covers all manner of outdoor gear—from boots and packs to tents, jackets, and kitchenware. Learn how to keep your gear finely tuned, properly stored, and operating at its best, and how to fix problems yourself—saving you serious money and time. Step-by-step instructions and real-world color photos walk you through all the repairs. And lets face it, some things are beyond fixing, even for the most skilled DIY-ers, so this book includes lots of advice on what features to look for when shopping for new gear.
This book could save you hundreds of dollars on outdoor gear! Dont retire a jacket just because its torn or buy a new tent because the zipper broke. Learn how to fix these problems—and dozens more—and save your money for a dream trip by following the step-by-step gear maintenance and repair instructions in this large trim, color handbook.
