How to Care for Outdoor Gear

Posted April 30, 2015

Get outside and enjoy the outdoors! 

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure."
—Christopher McCandless

Are you an adventurer at heart? Do you love hiking, biking, cycling and paddling? If so, you know how expensive high performance outdoor gear can be. The good news is, you can extend the life of your adventure wardrobe (and necessities, like sleeping bags) by learning how to clean and store them properly. 

"Adventure is worthwhile in itself." 
—Amelia Earhart

For example, do you know how to wash polar fleece so it won't pill or create a static-electricity nightmare? Do you know the best way to wash a down shell to avoid clumping? How can you maintain the moisture-wicking properties of your running clothes? 

"There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open."
—Jawaharlal Nehru

We have the answers to those questions and more. In fact, we have so much to share on this subject, we created a special eGuide, How to Care for Adventure FabricsThis guide is completely free, and packed with valuable care tips, storage information and maintenance advice.

"The landscape belongs to the person who looks at it." 
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
