Gear School: How To Find Fix Or Maintain The Things That Keep You Playing Outside

We recently stumbled on a Gear School video series, created by Backpacker Magazine in 2007, that pretty much walk you through how to find, fix, or maintain, the things that keep you playing outside.  These videos are so helpful, we’ve used them to start a special Gear School Playlist on our YouTube channel.

We’ve placed the playlist below for you, & plan to keep adding great videos (like this one from Keen on how to replace your Bungees).  Though more videos will continue to appear below as we grow the list, the inaugural playlist includes the following topics:

  • Wash a Sleeping Bag
  • Preserve a Hydration Bladder
  • Measure Your Torso Length
  • Prevent Blisters
  • Fit a Backpack Right
  • Size a Sleeping Bag Right
  • Cook With An Outback Oven
  • Fit Your Boots Right
  • Fix 6 Common Boot Problems
  • Keep Your Knife Sharp
  • Pack Your Tent with TLC
  • Hold Trekking Poles Right
  • Patch a Sleeping Pad
  • Pack For a Week Long Trip
  • Pamper Your Camera
  • KEEN Bungee Lace Replacement
  • MORE…COMING SOON…

If you have, or know of, other helpful (& accurate) videos that you think would be a great addition to our Gear School Playlist, please feel free to drop a link in the comments below.
