/ down jacket repair
Can anyone recommend how people who will repair it or a good way to do it myself, or somewhere its possible to buy spare patch material - Pertex Quantum GL I think?
Sorry, should have said "recommend people who will repair it..."
Rab will repair it. Email the customer service guys, they're very helpful!
these guys repaired my patagonia DAS parka really well, and would usually work out at a cheaper price than sending it back to the manufacturer.
It wont look amazing, and you'll probably get some down caught up in the glue, but it will be a strong repair.
Small blobs of aquasure can be used to seal small holes without stitching.
Keep your aquasure in the freezer after opening so it doesn't go off before you use it again.
my down jacket has been duct taped for probably 10 yesrs
Thanks for the responses all. I've emailed Rab.
I don't want to do a very obvious bodge-job, I'd really like to make the repair as inconspicuous as possible as I like to wear it out and about and to work when its cold (to the extent that I still have an old, tatty & dirty Neutrino Endurance that I still wear to the crag so that I can just chuck it around - the plan was to swap them when that one finally dies, and now it looks like the new one is dying first having had very little abuse)
I also used them on the crampon tears in my softshell trousers which get a lot of abuse and they have been there for several years.
Excellent advice there.
Regarding repairs sending it to Rab would be my choice, although I know people with Gaffa tape repairs that have lasted for years.
