Repair Kit

This is one thing that you don’t want to leave home without. While equipment failures occur only infrequently, they do happen. If you have a well thought out repair kit with you, the trip won’t be a total bust.

Here are the items I carry in my kit:

  1. 50 feet of parachute cord
  2. A spare piece of bungee cord for my tent poles.
  3. 20 feet of duck tape
  4. Pair of boot laces
  5. 1 piece of leather cord (about the size of a shoe lace in length and diameter)
  6. A Mini-Leatherman multi-tool
  7. Two small carabiners
  8. An extra aluminum sleeve for tent pole repair
