The KEA KIT is built to go with you on any adventure. It has been built tough and durable but some care should be taken to ensure it's longevity.
Packing your KEA KIT
If you have a fully stocked KEA KIT, a lot of care has been taken to ensure everything fits into the case nicely. It is important the gear is packed in a way that prevent stress on the fabric and zippers. Therefore try to keep these things in mind:
- The way you receive the kit is mostly optimal packing. It is best to keep the gear in it's allocated spot where possible.
- Try not to over pack or stuff the case as this may put undue stress on the zippers
- The Shelter pocket is made to fit the KEA Rain-Fly Tarp. Be cautions when trying to fit other shelters in this pocket as they may be too large. For more tips on how to pack the shelter, visit the 'KEA Shelter' page here
Caring for your KEA KIT
The KEA KIT is built to withstand the elements and the test of the outdoors, but some care should be taken to ensure it lasts as long as possible.
- The material and zippers are 'Water-Resistant' meaning the will withstand exposure to water and weather but should not be submerged or left in heavy rain. If water does get into the kit, you should take out the gear and leave the cases open until dry to prevent any degradation of the material
- The zippers on the KEA KIT are robust and durable. But it is important to take care when zipping the cases closed when the are full. Apply pressure to the top of the case to ensure the zipper moves freely.
- As mentioned above, be mindful not to over pack the KEA KIT. Excessive bulging may compromise the material & stitching.
