As an active
outdoors person, I understand the needs of outdoors people,
whether it is revising the fit of something so that it really
functions, rehabilitating thrashed gear, or adding a technical
feature to an item. I understand why a cycle jersey needs to be longer in
the back. Terms like "daisy chain"; "relief zipper" or "pit
zips" make sense to me. I especially pride myself on establishing
one-on-one relationships with my clients to truly understand their
needs. I can create solutions to your most interesting technical
gear challenges, or replace a zipper in a well loved fleece jacket,
or anything in-between.
For the past 15 years I have been working with backpackers, ultralight
hikers, skiers of all types, mountaineers, climbers; whitewater
enthusiasts and cyclists, speed skaters, ski & bike patrollers,
hikers, and hunters, just to name a few. At last count,
I have clients in over 35 states, UK, Sweden, Canada and Asia.
In addition, I work with many manufacturers on a referral basis. Thanks!!!

Some examples of what I do:
- Technical and shell clothing: altering for fit, repairs,
- Add features: pockets, pitzips, zippers, wear patches
- Fitting challenges: sleeves, length (too long or too short)
torso length, some resizing (see FAQ)
- General repairs & rehabilitation (zippers, patches, elastic,
- Taped Goretex ( and other similar fabrics) alterations &
- Special request or idea? Contact me and let's see if it can
be done! Trust me, it will not be the most far out thing I've
ever been asked to make.
Note - I no longer do tent modifications, backpack repairs and modificiations, or custom clothing, sorry! For tents, we only do basic repairs on small tents now. Also, many basic backpack repairs can be handled by any qualified shoe repair; no need to ship cross country for something you can probably get done in your neighborhood. For clothing issues, I am happy to modify something that's off the rack for better fit, but we do not do "from scratch" technical clothing. Beyond Clothing offers custom shell, softshell and insulated wear at very reasonable prices.
