This book covers repairs on the trail or at home. Techniques range from patching a rain jacket to patching a canoe, fixing broken zipper slides to reweaving snowshoe webbing, cleaning campstove jets to filing ice axe teeth. Getchell augments her concise hands-on instructions with numerous anecdotes from outdoor experts, creating a rich, captivating blend of field-based, real-world knowledge guidance. This comprehensive, multisport reference covers climbing hardware, tents, sleeping bags, hiking boots, binoculars, to name a few. The emphasis is as much on care as repair, since more of the former means less of the latter. Appendices offer trail-tested repair kits for specific activities, knots stitches, adhesives, nontoxic cleaning solutions.
