If you have gear, you’ve definitely had gear problems. A broken zipper, a rip in your down jacket, you name it — these minor issues can render your item completely unusable, to the point where it winds up in the dumpster.

 

Enter gear repair services, companies that exist solely to fix these issues. They’re few and far between, but if you have one in your area, you’re darn lucky. And you should avail their services before tossing an item in the garbage.

 

Some companies allow you to ship an item to them for repair. After they’re finished working, they send it back to you. This is typically a more expensive and time-consuming option than simply bringing it to a gear repair shop, but if you don’t have one nearby, this option works well.

 

Options to consider include Rainy Pass, which operates in Seattle, Wash. They work independently and also under a partnership with renowned gear store REI. They provide a free estimate and a timeline for their finished work.

 

Specialty Outdoors also offers gear repair, including technical clothing. Their website offers an array of do-it-yourself tips if you’re looking to try your hand at your own repair.

Get Through Airport Security Faster with CLEAR

Getting through airport security can be a nightmare in and of itself, adding extra hours to your trip that could better be spent in any number of more enjoyable activities. Programs like Global Entry and TSA PreCheck are helping to make the process a little more bearable, but a new program, CLEAR, is quickly emerging as an up-and-coming way to make things even easier.

Review: Sopa Barcelona

Located on a flat corner in Barcelona’s Poble Nou neighborhood, a site for many a tech startup or already established tech giant (like HP Enterprise and Booking.com), Sopa serves as a perfect lunch spot during the workday. The cafeteria-style eatery lets you fill up on vegetarian and vegan dishes and either dine in, take the food outside to the patio dining area or take it back to the office for a lunchtime meeting.
