Backpacking 101 - Make Your Own Gear

When: Sun., Oct. 20, 4-5 p.m. 2019

Make your own gear (MYOG) has long been a part of the hiking/backpacking community. For this event, we will explore some MYOG basics including commonly used backpacking materials and resources to help you continue your knowledge. We will make a Dyneema Composite Fabric (DCF) stuff sack using a bonding tape (no sew) with a drawstring. The primary goal of this event is to inspire creativity and dispel fear around making your own gear. Workshop will be lead by local backpacker and experienced gear-maker, Travis Browning. Join us at 3:30 with any unwanted gear you have for a free gear exchange!

Price: $13
