Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed?

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have damaged climbing gear and try to repair it.
What happens when the bug occurs? The climbing gear continues to be broken or damaged dispite numerous attempts at repair.
What do you expect to see? Improved quality of gear (ex. from "Broken" to "Good")

Purchased climbing gear from a computer - it was "Great" quality. Used it to practice climbing for several hours. Tried both repairing at "Poor" quality and at "Broken" several times in the course of 3 sim days (due to cool down period), but no improvement to gear.

Climbing gear can be expensive so you want it to last and if it breaks you want to be able to fix it. Now you can do just that and instead of just saying it’s fixed, when you go to equip it, it will actually be fixed and will be equippable.

Fixed in Patch 1.97.42/1.73

If you're still experiencing this issue, please create a new thread.

I can duplicate this on PS4. Repairing gear never improves the condition of the gear.

Mine also have another problem: after repairing broken gear, both equipping and repairing choices grey out. All i can do is throwing away current gear and buying a new pair on computer...

@JuliaChang93 That's probably why you can't use them anymore. How high is your Sims handiness skill ? Maybe he broke it when fixing ?

@crinrict just after repairing it, as you can see at the top of this picture:

 

ps: i will try waiting for awhile and repair it again (if it wont be greyed out), hope this will help - but i dont think it will since repairing didnt work :/

I'm also experiencing this. I've tried repairing it three or four times. Each time, the quality either stayed the same or degraded, and each time the notification implies that the repair was successful. I'm level 4 rock climbing and handiness.
