We would like to thank ‘the guys’ at Tent London and everyone that came along to see our first collection. The response has been overwhelming!

As a publication that recommends all manner of quality gear, there’s one criterion we’ve come to hold above all others: durability.

Because gear that lasts benefits everyone: You. Your wallet. The environment.

Which is why, ahead of Earth Day, we’re breaking down nine American brands that offer the country’s best in-house repair programs.

But first, a note about the costly mistake of buying the disposable, trendy and tawdry. If you’re the sort of frugal shopper who believes buying cheap is a way to get ahead, you may want to reconsider the long-term strategy.

Which is not to say you should blow your next paycheck on the most expensive thing you can find. The “buy less, buy better” philosophy must be pursued reasonably, or within your means.
