Nikwax Conditioner for Leather

NEVER USE ON SUEDE!!! My friend tried to weather protect my brand new 100$ Uggs and completely ruined them. They are now blotchy and went from a light brown to a dark brown, almost black. Very very very very upset. In short, read the directions and never use this stuff on suede or you'll ruin anything it touches!! My experience was poor, however it was used incorrectly. Just want to let people know if anyone does try to use it on suede. Full review

Sea to Summit Mat Repair Kit

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised by this product. Needed to make an emergency repair to my rain jacket a Marmot Oracle Jacket. Only thing the store had was this kit for sleeping pads. I had backed into a lantern and burned a quarter size hole in it dead center of my shoulder blades on a previous outing. The kit came with four round 1 1/4-inch and four 2-inch square patches. What I did was put a square one on the inside of the jacket and a round one on the outside effectively glueing them together in case they… Full review

Nikwax TX.Direct Wash-In

rated 4.5 of 5 stars After pretty much destroying two rain jackets by not waterproofing them often enough and then running them through a normal wash, I've been able to re-waterproof them almost perfectly with the Nikwax Direct Wash-In. Fast and easy, and good at fixing my prior neglect! :-) As noted above, I pretty much managed to destroy two rain jackets by neglecting them and running them through the normal wash a few times. Of course, I only discovered my mistake after becoming thoroughly soaked in a big rainstorm,… Full review

ReviveX Down Cleaner

rated 5 of 5 stars Great product for cleaning your down sleeping bag and other down gear and is a great value in terms of the amount of product you get for the cost. I spent quite a bit of time researching on the web for cleaners to use to clean my down sleeping bag that had seen one too many nights of me crawling in all dirty, sweaty, and grimy. I selected this product based on the reviews and also because it represented the best value with respect to the amount of product you received for the money spent. I bought… Full review

Gear Aid Tenacious Tape Patches

rated 5 of 5 stars I patched holes in my Big Agnes sleeping pad over two years ago; the patches are still in place. This stuff is the best. I patched holes in my Big Agnes sleeping pad over two years ago; the patches are still in place. No leaks. One of the areas I patched was at the mattress edge. If I could give 6 stars I would.

Gear Aid Seam Sure

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Got it at REI...was the only thing they had. Applied to tent. Rained next day. NO DIFFERENCE; leaked just the same. Lousy results. REI issued a full refund. Don't bother!! Lousy product; did not work. Full review

Granger's Extreme Cleaner Spray-on

rated 3 of 5 stars Granger's Extreme Cleaner Spray-on is an easy-to-apply cleaner for down jackets, sleeping bags, and other gear that cannot/should not go into a washing machine. While it will knock off the dirt and grime, users should not expect their down products to look as good as new. I bought it in the United States, but the product is based in the United Kingdom and hard to find. Search Amazon. Let me start by saying, I did not go looking to buy this product. I went into an “outdoor gear store” to buy… Full review

InstaMorph

rated 5 of 5 stars This is something new to me. It is a moldable plastic that can be used for so many repairs when on the trail. It can be made moldable in hot water and can be remolded as necessary. I used it to repair a broken tent pole and it got me through what would otherwise would have been a very miserable four-day trip. This stuff is amazing. The uses for it are only limited by your need and imagination. Can be used for repairs of items you already have or to make something you need. It will bond to some plastics. Full review

Gear Aid Freesole Shoe & Boot Repair

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an easy-to-use shoe glue for repairs such as detached soles. It dries overnight and holds securely even after severe abuse. About a month ago, I did a review of the Brooks PureGrit 3 trail running shoes. In that review, I pointed out that the sole had begun to separate near the toe on both shoes. Immediately after writing that review, I used some Freesole to re-attach the sole with fantastic results.   EASE OF USE:   Overall, Freesole is pretty easy to use. You just smear a little bit… Full review
