Does anywhere (either online or in the Yorkshire Area) still sell Gore-tex fabric patches?

Tenacious tape is too hard and goes brittle, and the other modern 'equivalents' I've found online either have equivocal reviews or I'm not even sure what they are!

I'm just wondering how people have been fixing their water-proof kit (especially anything modern and stretchy)?

Ta,

In reply to PontiusPirate: goretex patches wont breath just use seam sealler type stuff or any nylon type patch with a good seam sealler for a better adhesive

It's for isolated crampon and ski damage to various bits of waterproof legwear - by 'fallback' option is Spinnaker Tape (i.e. stuff for repairing sails) - looks like it's going to be that.

Here's my suggested repair method, using iron-on seam seal tape:

Stretchy might be difficult. Depending on how stretchy you need to be; most likely tears are around crampons, and there's little need for stretch in that area.
