Repairing Outdoor Equipment …… a Pybus University Class on 1/23

Got damaged outdoor equipment needing repair? Pybus University has the answer for you.
Bring your items down to Pybus Market next Tuesday, Jan 23, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m and experts affiliated with WenatcheeOutdoors will help you make your gear field-worthy again.

What can we fix?
1) We’ll have sewing machines, patches, glues, sealants, and permanent tapes (much better than duct tape) to fix soft goods. We we can fix holes, rips, abrasions, tears, seams, some zippers, and leaks in pants, raingear, packs, tents, tarps, gaiters, shoes, climbing skins, wet suits, and more.
2) Hardware is trickier but if you’re having trouble with camp stoves, crampons, ski boots, skis, or climbing hardware, bring those items too. We can fix minor issues or give you a strategy for problems beyond the tools and supplies we’ll have on hand. For the first 25 minutes, we’ll discuss extremely useful supplies and resources for fixing outdoor gear. Even salty old hands will learn new tricks and some new resources. Then we’ll break apart and fix the gear class participants have brought in.

Andy Dappen, outdoor writer and founder of the Wenatchee Outdoors website, has been damaging-and fixing- his equipment for nearly 50 years. He says, “On a writer’s wages I can’t afford to buy a lot of new gear. I need to give all my gear second and third lives.”
