- ripped waterproof
Iron on goretex patches are great, they last years.
But if you want a fast and free repair, and your not massively fussed about looks…. a square of decent quality duct tape, and iron it in place (under a tea towel so it doesn’t melt)
I have a jacket that was repaired this way more than 20 years ago, and the patch is still there after dozens and dozens of washes 👍Posted 1 year ago
I could send it off to them during the dry season.
I hope they have quick turn around
I doubt it would have left the PO before the wet season returns!
I’ve got a down jacket with a spinnaker tape patch on that has lasted ages
It’s looking like tape is the thinking mans repair medium.Posted 1 year agopotheadMember
+1 for Tenacious Repair Tape for around £8 a roll, used it on a Montane softshell and must admit I didn’t expect it to work but does, just remember to cut the ends in a radius and not square as the corners will start to lift after a while. I also used gorilla tape on the inside as it’s a fleece lined jacket and while both will need replacing after a while it’s saved an expensive jacket from being a write offPosted 1 year ago1timmy1Subscriber
I used a storm sure patch when put a hole in my waterproof, been impressed with it so far.

It was £80, I waited for the sales and I still thought it was £40 too expensive. I was suckered in to the thinking I needed a proper cycling jacket otherwise I would get wet wrists or something! My last Jacket was a £25 regatta hydrotex jacket, it lasted nearly 3 years. However it has no rips – the water proofing doesn’t work on the shoulders anymore so needed replacement.Posted 1 year ago
