McNett Launches Mobile Version of Outdoor Gear Care & Repair Guides


The Gear Aid app is now available via the Apple and Android Markets as a free download.

Bellingham, WA (August 12, 2011) -- McNett®, the outdoor industry leader in personal care, water treatment and gear care and repair products for nearly 30 years, has launched a digital version of its popular gear care and repair guides. The Gear Aid™ app offers tips, recommendations and step-by-step instructions for proper outdoor gear care and repair.

Now available as a free download via any iPhone, iPod, iPad or Android-enabled device, the app is the mobile solution for outdoor enthusiasts looking for common gear repair tips and recommendations to enhance their outdoor experience. Featuring illustrated images and video, the Gear Aid app is a quick way for users to make knowledgeable repairs in-field or at home and offers suggestions for selecting the perfect product to waterproof, clean, deodorize, protect, revitalize or repair their outdoor gear and equipment.

"Ensuring that your gear is in optimal working condition could be a matter of life and death in extreme conditions," said Cheriss Faiola, community development specialist at McNett. "At the very least, it could also mean the difference between a really fun time outdoors and a camping trip gone bad."

Featuring tips on maintenance and repair for most outdoor gear including outerwear, tents, boots, backpacks, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, waders, dry suits, paddle gear, fishing gear and inflatable boats, the Gear Aid app is a how-to guide that goes anywhere you go.

"Having in-field access to these guides is invaluable to our users since most gear damage occurs outdoors," said Faiola. "While our gear care and repair guides are available in retail stores everywhere, it was important that outdoor enthusiasts also had convenient access to those guides on-the-go. Now, you can bring our expert recommendations everywhere your phone goes."

The Gear Aid app provides camping and backpacking tips; how-to guides on repairing camping gear, fixing leaky waders, weatherproofing and seam sealing tents, waterproofing outerwear and footwear, repairing broken zippers; recommendations for storing, packing, cleaning and deodorizing outdoor gear; and much more. McNett is continually adding new content, tips and solutions so you can get back outside. For more information, Ask the Experts by visiting
