Gore-Tex Repair Kit
Whether you are an aficionado of the outdoors or you simply like to go camping as a family vacation once each year, chances are good that you have one or more pieces of equipment or apparel that are made from Gore-Tex. The Gore-Tex material is durable and made from stretched polytetrafluoroethylene, which is the generic name for Teflon. People like Gore-Tex because it is lightweight, waterproof and wind-resistant. Consider these benefits of investing in a Tear-Aid Type A repair kit to keep with you on all of your adventures.
Prevent a Camping Catastrophe
When you are out camping for a few days, chances are good that there could be a day or night of rainy weather. If some wind is added to the mix, it is possible that your tent made of Gore-tex could experience a small tear. A Tear-Aid Type A repair kit would allow you to fix your tent so that you could stay comfortable and dry despite what Mother Nature has sent your way. This type of repair kit is compact, which makes it ideal for packing along with your other camping supplies. The repair kit is also easy to use and does not require any special tools.
Save Money on Outdoor Apparel
When you find a piece of quality outdoor apparel that fits you well and suits your style, you want to make the most out of your investment. An adventure through the woods or climbing up a cliff could result in a tear on your Gore-Tex outerwear. Instead of having to throw your beloved garment away and contribute to the waste that is sent to the landfill, you could remedy that Gore-Tex material with a Tear-Aid Type A kit. Investing in a repair kit would be considerably less than what you would spend to replace your garment.
Enjoy a Longer Outdoor Adventure
When you wear outerwear that is made out of Gore-Tex, you will be able to withstand colder temperatures than you would otherwise be exposed to. This facilitates long outdoor adventures such as climbing some of the planet’s highest and most challenging mountain peaks. If you have a goal of climbing Mount Whitney, you will need apparel that is made to withstand all sorts of weather, that does not weigh a lot and does not add too much bulk. A Tear-Aid Type A repair kit ensures that you can stay out a long time.
