A jacked-up zipper and compressed down can put your mummy bag on the disabled list and possibly to the gear graveyard. In dire economic times many people face today, maintaining and repairing your outdoor gear can save money.
Rainy Pass Repair is celebrating its 25th anniversary. The company has been the savior to countless outdoorsmen and women by reviving gear.
