Serving Carbondale and the Roaring Fork Valley, We offer repair and alteration services on an appointment/walk-in basis. We will work on outdoor gear and some apparel.  We perform all  work as fast as possible- often while you wait or less than 1 week to get your goods back into your hands.

We will quote a fixed price on most work before we start – so you will know your cost before committing. Just like a bike or ski shop, We estimate most work at 60$/hr. Because we have a wide array of specialty tools, machines, and materials on hand, we can perform most work in an efficient, cost effective, and professional manner.  We may also refuse work or re-direct you to a different service provider if we are not well suited to the specific work.

save time & $$$ by cleaning your item before bringing it in. (washing machine are great , for x-large items soapy water & a brush  or vacuuming out the dirt/dust will be acceptable). Secondly, remove extra parts (backpack lids, etc.) and empty all pockets (large bills exempt!). We request that large & bulky items be picked up ASAP after completion of work.
