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.

  • Dreamy loam is hard to beat when it comes to riding surfaces and the Aquila feels right at home digging through it! 💥 #onzatires #loam
  • Check out the full review in our bio 👍. Have you tried merino? Generally, you can get a bit smelly with synthetic fabrics whereas @monsroyale merino handles body odours very well. We experienced zero odours on the trails or in the car on the way home where it usually starts to pong. We felt as fresh as when we first pulled them on. The beauty of this is that you don't need to bring a change of clothing with you. You can hop off the bike and into the local bar or cafe without clearing the place out. | Photo: @richardmcgibbon
  • Fusing function and form, @monsroyale merino clothing is a natural, biodegradable and sustainable fibre that outperforms man-made fabrics. Mons Royale clothing is continually tested and refined to ensure it's the best match for your body and performance. | Photos: @richardmcgibbon

  • We LOVE this photo from photographer @richardmcgibbon . This is what he gets up to on the weekends. A very familiar face at most of the MTB events in Australia, he’s a talented guy and we’re honoured to have him shoot for us. 🙌
