Hi,

I have some mountain equipment Changabang Pants. If anyone is familiar with these pants you will know they have a protective rubber piece on the thigh to stop damage from ice screws cams ext ! this is coming away from the main goretex fabric of the pants and was wondering what is the best glue to stick this back together without effecting the pores of the fabric?

Many thanks

Bob

Seam grip.

It seems to be the standard answer for anything climbing related, from gloves, to holes in rucksacs and waterproofs.

Clean the top carefully and keep it in the fridge and a tube will last for years.

It will of course totally block the pores of the fabric. Glue and holes rather work in opposition to each other.

Rubber isn't breathable, so, if there's a rubber piece on the fabric already, it won't breathe, so it doesn't matter what glue you use.

Seam grip sounds a good choice.
