Can you Fix it? Yes, you can with Gear Aid repair + reuse

Whether your adventure is climbing a mountain, fishing in the rain, day hiking in your local national park or camping in your backyard, there is a lot of gear that comes with the territory.

When used for long durations in hard conditions, even the most durable (and expensive) gear can start to deteriorate. Thankfully the gear fixing guru’s, Gear Aid have a host of handy products to easily repair and reuse your well worn gear, to not only save you money, but reduce our impact on our beloved environment.

Gear Aid

Seam Grip

Seam Grip WP is an all-in-one-tube repair kit that adheres to any fabric or surface. Whether it be seam sealing a leaky tent fly or patching up that hole in your sleeping mat, Seam Grip WP is the perfect choice for repairing your gear both in the field and at home.

Gear Aid products will restore all your favourite outdoor gear to ‘as good as new’, increase longevity and ensure your equipment always performs to its maximum. So even when you’ve gone and ripped a hole in your tent… don’t throw it away – fix it!


Gear Aid

Tenacious Tape

While on adventures, quick but effective fixes are a must, as not all of us have sewing skills! Tenacious Tape is a waterproof repair tape that quickly fixes tents, ski pants or your favourite puffy coat and the ultra-aggressive adhesive means this tape won’t peel off when applied to technical fabrics like nylon and vinyl. Just peel and stick the ingenious Tenacious Tape next time you tear.


Gear Aid

Revivex Cleaner & Repellent

Over time, durable water repellency on technical gear wears off. Once this happens the fabric becomes prone to getting dirty and absorbing water. Regularly re-proofing treatments on rainwear, softshells, ski pants, and GORE-TEX jackets will extend your gears life ten-fold.

Just pre-clean the garment with Gear Aid’s Revivex Pro Cleaner, spray-on Revivex Durable Water Repellent spray and let air dry. The Revivex Durable Water Repellent resists abrasion and repels water, oil and stains!

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I'm also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them. So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.

  • RIDE CONCEPTS POWERLINE – SHOE REVIEW
Aimed at the enduro and all-mountain crowd, with a superior fit and construction to most other flat pedal shoes on the market. The @ridecncpts Powerline is a shoe that is very hard to beat. 🤟🏼 Read the review in our bio link. | Photo credit: @seaninthedirt | Rider: @instarrdan
  • We love this shot from @dharcoclothing . The golden hour has to be one of the most magical times to ride. What do you think?

  • They’re baccccckkkkk... The Loam Grips are back and fully stocked (just like questionable 90s fashion, but better!)
  • Whether you're going for a day trip or a week of adventures, The North Face Base Camp duffles are roomy enough inside for all your gear. Just keep on cramming kit in there and you'll be surprised how much you can get into this is the iconic, super tough expedition duffel. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • How do you carry your junk? @allmountainstyle seem to have it all wrapped up with their OS Strap. 👍🏼 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • Threading our way through to the weekend with the @monsroyale MTB gear.🤘🏼 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • The Leatt DBX 3.0 is one of the safest mountain bike helmets in the market. What’s protecting your noggin today? 🧠 | 📸 @seanmurr123 / @seaninthedirt
  • The weekend is one more sleep away. What are your plans? 😛 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • The @granite_design ROCKnROLL is a perfect companion to take on those longer rides where a trailside fix is crucial to getting you home. The whole package weighs only 136g, so adding it to your pack or hip belt is low-cost in terms of weight, considering the ROCKnROLL has all the bits that you'll need to do your trailside fix. Now you can live the ROCKnROLL lifestyle you've always dreamed about!
  • Wow! Pretty much sums up what we thought of the @hentydesigns Enduro Backpack. If you're intrigued by these new age bum bags then have a read of our review on our website. | Photo credit: @richardmcgibbon
  • WHISTLER PERFORMANCE LUBES

There is a concern that eco-friendly products are not as effective as non-eco products. We have to call bullshit on this. The WPL range of lubricants is as good, if not better, than any non-eco friendly product on the market. best of all it doesn't harm the environment or you! | 📸@richardmcgibbon | #lube #lubedup #silkysmooth
  • With so many hydration gels, tabs and powders out there, it can be a little bewildering which ones to choose. We all have our favourites and over the years we tend to stick with what we know, so when we discover a new brand, we’re a little reluctant at first to go and spend our hard earned money on something that we don’t know will work for us, but after reading about @hdxmix story and the founder behind it, we must admit, we got very interested, indeed. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
