A small and well-equipped repair kit (repair kit) is simply necessary when conducting a hiking trip of any kind and complexity.
Hiking repair kit, repair kit to enable minor repairs and maintenance of personal and group equipment in the field.
The purpose of the repair kit is clear from its name. Providing minor repairs and preventive maintenance of personal and group equipment in the field. The composition of the repair kit, as a rule, will be unstable. Its size and equipment will directly depend on.
Conditions for a hike or expedition (hiking, mountain, water, cycling, etc.).
Clothing and shoes of its participants (summer, winter, etc.).
Degrees of experience and training of participants (experience in the operation, maintenance, repair of equipment, etc.).
The presence of specific equipment and equipment, which may require special materials and tools for its maintenance and repair.
And other factors.
In some cases, in order to optimize the volume and reduce the weight of the portable equipment, it will be more convenient to divide the repair kit into personal and group. For example, it is not necessary for everyone to have a set of pullers in a group bike trip, one is enough for everyone.
backpack, sleeping bag, etc..
The more difficult and longer the hiking trip, the more equipment and equipment used in it, the correspondingly there will be more items in the repair kit. As an example, the composition of the repair kit.
A set of needles of different sizes.
Safety pins of different sizes.
Threads are kapron, thin and thick.

Actually, the list can be continued for a very, very long time, the number of options for picking and filling the repair kit is endless. Moreover, for mountain, water, bicycle trips, traveling by car, etc., it will have its own characteristics and will depend more on personal preferences in choosing equipment, equipment and machinery. In conclusion, I would like to draw attention to some general aspects regarding the assembly of all types of repair kits.
In a hiking trip, the tool kit should be light in weight and easy to carry, practical and include the simplest devices.
Waterproof and shockproof packing of the belt kit is highly desirable..
Remnabor must correspond to the level of skills and professionalism of the user.
Contain as few items as possible, for example, a single Leatherman multitool will replace many specialized tools taken individually.
Be effective and already field tested.
