GEAR AID champions renewal for those who play and work outside

We know adventure and the gear that is essential for it. For more than 35 years, we’ve been seeking to solve gear problems by empowering people to make gear last longer. We created products that fix and restore gear as well as enhance the outdoor experience. With more than 100 quality products including Aquaseal®, Seam Grip®, Revivex®, and Tenacious Tape®, we make gear better and adventures bigger.

Our mission is to champion renewal while staying connected to the outdoors. When gear fails, GEAR AID is at your side. By maintaining gear yourself, through care and repair, we can all help reduce waste by extending its life for years to come.

About Us

What Gets You Outside?

Whether you're camping, fishing, paddling, or hunting, gear is essential. When it breaks, fix your gear right, so it continues to keep you outdoors – rain or shine.

REPAIR. REUSE. RENEW.

We believe in preserving outdoor gear, outerwear and footwear through our Repair, Renew, Reuse philosophy. When gear rips or tears, repair it by using one of our easy-to-use products to make it last longer. Each gash or scratch tells a tale, so keep the story going for as long as possible.

Spring Tent Care: How to Waterproof, Patch, Clean and More

“Products like GEAR AID Tenacious Tape Patches tackle tears and pokes like a pro. And they’re basically idiot-proof. Use a little rubbing alcohol to clear around the breach, cut the tape or patch to fit the hole, then stick it on. Presto!”

29 Items Your Ultimate Bug-Out Bag Should Have

“This [paracord] has a multitude of uses, from constructing a ridge line for a shelter to using as fishing line to (obviously) tying things together...the reflective cord can be a useful way to signal rescuers. Apparently paracord is so useful that people like to make it into bracelets...I’m happy enough with it in a bag.”

“Multifunction lights can be clunky, with too many pieces to keep track of. Not GEAR AID’s 4.5-ounce system. The tough plastic capsule clips to your pack’s strap or screws into a sternum attachment for biking. Don’t be fooled by its 110 lumens—it comes in handy on the trail and at base camp.”
