Care & Repair: give your gear the best care

You have taken great care when choosing your clothing and hiking boots; they fit like a glove and have accompanied you on many an adventure. And the better you take care of your quality gear, the longer it will accompany you on the road. Moreover, maintenance is the best way to reduce waste.


But how exactly should it be done? Our product specialists know how to handle that. We can tell you all about the required maintenance methods and offer a repair and mend service. Just drop by, we will be happy to help you.

"Our job doesn’t end when you go home with the right gear. We can also help you maintain your new gear to keep it in tip-top shape. We take sustainability seriously – for us, it’s not an empty promise."

Claudia Verswyver, Sustainability Coordinator at A.S.Adventure

Wash and waterproof your gear yourself

Do you throw your outdoor clothes in the washing machine with normal clothing? Don’t! Use a technical detergent and then impregnate (make water repellant) your clothing afterwards. Maintenance products from Grangers or Nikwax are perfect for this. A regular detergent is guaranteed to lose the waterproof qualities from your waterproof jacket or trousers.


Technical gear demands different maintenance methods. But don’t let that put you off: if you follow our tips, nothing will go wrong. Hiking boots, ski gear, down jackets, camping gear, cycling or running clothing: whatever it is, we’ve got your back!

Retouch service

Maybe you want your new (outdoor) trousers to be a few centimetres shorter, or maybe your new summer dress needs taking in; we can take care of that too. Ask the shop staff to pin the garment for you, and we will send it to our workshop. When your item is ready, we will notify you by phone so you can pick up your product at your A.S.Adventure Store.

Do you have questions about washing or repairing? You can easily contact us, or simply visit your local A.S.Adventure Store. Our team will be happy to provide you with the advice you need.

You are ready for something new after all those trips together, but you want to avoid making the waste mountain bigger at all costs? Maybe you should think about entrusting your beloved gear to the Recycle Boxes in our shops. We upcycle and recycle your old gear so it goes back on the road or is transformed into raw materials for another purpose.
