Dont really know where to put this, but ive had my whole pack conataining all my gear stolen. The pack is an Osprey Kestrel 32L pack in size M/L, red and tan. Brand new SMC rigging plate, various screw links, Omega rings, Omega locking ovals, Black Diamond, wire gates, about 150 ft of green Sterling tech tape, a few other random Biners, 1/2 Shackles both converted to bolts, chain links, SMC CR pulley. It was stolen from my Jeep in Marlborough MA. Hoping you guys could keep a look out online etc for any of it. I doubt it was anyone involved with climbing or slackline, but I have no clue. Jcomeau

I have recovered all my gear. The bad news is it was left it a compactor for a few days and everything needs a cleaning. Also, some of it may be junk afterall. Jcomeau

The gear was stolen out of my car at work. I do not smoke weed. Next answer, the police department had a call for a backpack left in the parkinglot. I went to that store to find out about it, and after the police came to inspect it, they tossed it. Now I need to clean the dumpster juice out of my pack. Any Ideas? Jcomeau

Soak the pack in hunter's soap a few times (Walmart sells it), then air dry it thoroughly. Febreeze it if most but not all of the smell goes away, eventually the odors will dissipate.

"To serve and protect."
Glad the cops are there for more reasons than to write us tickets.
Sorry about that man.

I'd say start with Woolite and the garden hose.

Just use dish soap and a hose, or if you don't live in a house wash it in your bathtub. Stich
