GIVE YOUR GEAR SOME TLC

Trail (UK) - - RIDGE GUIDE CENTRAL HIGHLANDS -

Af­ter the long, dry sum­mer it’s time to start think­ing about prep­ping for the on­set of au­tumn, with GT’s guide to in­su­lated jack­ets and wa­ter­proof trousers (p80). Dust off the cob­webs, lay out all your win­ter gear and then get wash­ing, dry clean­ing and re­proof­ing to keep them in tip-top con­di­tion. Tests show that clean­ing and re­proof­ing your kit can help to re­store waterproofing back to its orig­i­nal per­for­mance, or close to it. It may be a bor­ing job, but it’s worth do­ing. Sell on or re­cy­cle any­thing you no longer need.
