Repair Station: Keeping Kit Going
We love gear. Gear helps us to go nice places and do good things. The problem is, the gear we love the most gets used the most. And all that season after season, year-in year-out abuse takes its toll.
We don’t want to chuck gear on the scrapheap every time we get a tiny tear or a zip breaks. Imagine how gear feels being traded in for a newer model. Poor gear. Think of the all the memories we’ve shared – we've been through too much together.
The longer we keep our clothing, tents and rucksacks going, the less we buy and the smaller our impact on the planet. It’s the reason we’ve always repaired our own products, and the reason we’ve been repairing outdoor kit from any brand, since 2004.
Fancy new jacket? Nah, give us a patched-up patchwork jacket full of memories any day. It’s not just good for the environment: it’s a badge of honour.
