Garmology podcast: Design for repairability – With Rosanna Watson, Snowdonia Gear Repair (#116)

In this episode, Rosanna Watson of Snowdonia Gear Repair drops in to talk about the boom in outdoor gear, designing for repairability, greenwashing in the outdoor industry, the problem with “sustainable” proofing, the balance between technical performance and durability, Goretex and synthetic fabric, why some like visible repairs and others don’t and why you should start mending your clothes today. Oh, and a pro tip for one of the big things to look for when shopping for a new jacket.
