I've got an Arcteryx jacket that has a draw string around the waist. its held in place by some fabric looped back over itself to form a pocket (if that makes sense).

unfortunately the jacket found its way into the tumble dryer and it appears the glue? or bonding has melted and the pocket now hangs loose leaving the drawstring also hanging and useless.

What's the best way to fix it? without ruining the jacket.
Thanks

Well, since it's a hot-melt glue, re-melt it with a warm iron?

Funny you should mention this, I've an Arcteryx jacket that's done exactly the same. It's about 6 years old though, so I can't grumble. I'm going to use Seamgrip when I get around to it.

I have a Rab jacket, and when the tape covering the waist drawstring came adrift I used Spinnaker tape and seamgrip to fix it
