ReviveX Pro Cleaner

rated 5 of 5 stars Best bang for the buck. Previously, I've used Nikwax for down and thought I'd try McNett's Gear Aid. I won't be using Nikwax any longer and here's why: GA goes waaay farther, like about four to eight times what NW does making it that much less cost. Having used the 3-4 ozs. of Nikwax that's recommended for a down bag and finding that it does the job fine, I tried Gear Aid. They say it's concentrated four times more and using it made a believer of me. Literally, 1.5 ozs. cleans a down sleeping bag,… Full review

Tenacious Tape Fabric Repair Tape

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the best. I've used this to repair tears and holes in my $100 bicycle seat, Cordura panniers, backpack, down jacket; all with total success and no failure. Even the adhesive is impervious to water. No better product is available. I highly recommend it for any fabric repair you want to be permanent. You won't get it off after a few months. Full review

Seam Grip

rated 1 of 5 stars Don't waste time or money.

When applying seam grip it soaks into the seams, making them curl up, so you have to sit there and keep pushing edges down to stick, best… Full review

Tenacious Tape Fabric Repair Tape

rated 4 of 5 stars A strong and durable patch kit for nylons, fabrics, and more! I first purchased this tape to apply it to a pair of Gore-Tex rain pants from North Face. They had caught an ember from a campfire and had a hole the size of a dime. Fearful of catching something on the hole and making it worse, I started researching options to make the fix. I first considered traditional duct tape, but decided that it would leave a residue and not be much of a permanent seal as I would have liked as well as left residue. Full review

RAM Claw Light Mount

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A sturdy and easy to operate mount for use with Gear Aid lights. The Claw Mount is best suited for around the house or task specific needs due to its one-dimensional nature. I tested the RAM Claw Light Mount as an accessory item to the the Gear Aid ARC Rechargeable LED Light and Power Station. To my knowledge it fits any of the currently offered Gear Aid lights (Spark, Arc, or Flux). I used the RAM Claw Light Mount for three months in a wide array of situations.  Here is a list of things I attached… Full review
