Trek Light Gear's FAQ & Tree of Knowledge

Holey Hammock! Got A Tear In Your Gear?

Let's face it - when it comes to gear, holes happen.

Maybe it was an ember from that awesome fire you built. Maybe you should have thought twice before you used your packed up hammock as a football last night.

No matter how it happened, if your hammock, Bindle pack, Tarp, Eco Tote, etc. has developed a small tear or hole, your Trek Light Gear products are far from ruined when you find yourself with a mishap.

When you encounter a hole or small tear in your Trek Light product, the best thing you can do is to immediately patch the hole so it can't grow any bigger.

You can purchase Gear Repair Patches in our store that are easily applied and designed to be as durable as our products themselves.

When a small tear becomes a big problem

We've heard from many customers over the years who have told us they've continued using their hammock with "lots of unpatched holes!" and that it "still works great!".

It's an awesome testament to the strength and tear resistant qualities of the materials we use and we appreciate the stoke, but we recommend checking your Trek Light Gear products for holes before every use and patching them before continuing to use the product.

Sooner or later that small tear could turn into a bigger tear and repair is no longer an option at that point - patches are cheap and easy, so use 'em!  Just one of our $3 repair patches offers enough coverage for many small holes/tears.

If you feel like you've got a tear or issue with your gear that's not your fault and should be covered under our Lifetime Warranty, don't hesitate to get in touch
