Video: How to Patch and Repair Your Gear

If there is a bright side to the coronavirus pandemic its that we all have a lot more extra time on our hands. We shouldn’t waste that opportunity to get a few things done that we’ve been putting off, like working on projects around the house, learning new skills, or catching up on activities that we’ve let slide. One such activity is repairing our outdoor gear. Over time, when we use our gear in the field, those items get worn out, develop rips and tears, or just need to be cleaned. In this video, our friends at REI provide us with some instruction on how to patch our gear and keep it performing well, something that we can all appreciate at time when buying new gear doesn’t necessarily fit into our budgets.
