/ Seam tape?
Just wondering if anyone could help me. I am heading up to the Cairngorms in Feb and my waterproof jacket has seen better days. Some of the seam tape is pealing away from the inside, does anyone know of a temp fix or can you bye seam tape to allow this jacket to see me through abit longer?
Cheers Guys !

alternatively one of these, depending on what your jacket is made of.
I've used "Seam Grip" for the same reason and it worked great. As it's curing I put a bit of talc or chalk dust on it so it wasn't sticky (in that rubbery kind of way).
seam grip is the business for sticking anything together IMO, there are other identical products like storm seal that was cheaper last time i looked.
The only issue I have with the stuff is that it sets in the tube eventually. If you keep it in the freezer the solvent doesn't evaporate so fast and it stays liquid.
Good links. Used as follows:
Assuming the cag is PVC or neoprene (they're not generally made from breathable materials), then you're probably better off using an adhesive; PVC and neoprene both bond pretty well with suitable adhesives.
BTW, the iron isn't 'hot'; it's usually about 1.5 dots (on a 3 dots = cotton dry iron). You can also protect the fabric from direct contact with the iron by using brown paper or parchment paper.
