Cheap Spring Gear Upgrades

Its that time of year when you pull out the gear you haven’t used in a while and start to get excited about spring and summer activities. Washing, re-waterproofing, cleaning, and repairing are all top of mind.  One small upgrade many people forget about is their trekking pole tips.

I was at REI recently and picked up a new set of Black Diamond Carbide Tech Tips for about $7.00. They are a great way to refresh some old gear that might have worn out without you even knowing.
