Average Rating
Ragged Mountain Press,
Pub. Date:
This book covers repairs on the trail & at home. Tips & 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 clear illustrations & 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.
