/ Goretex and pertex repairs
How small? If really small I'd sew it up and then put seam grip over it. Slightly bigger, then patch it. I got spinnaker tape as everyone raved about it, but I've found it rather rubbish at staying stuck down. If you paint seam grip around the edge it does stay stuck on. Friend have used the goretex iron on patches with great success, I just always balked at the price!
Sew them up. Stick some duct tape over if you want the hard man image.
Seam Grip and McNett Tenacious Tape works well for me. Quite discreet and seems to stay put (and no need to sew anything!).
Another vote for Tenacious Tape here
for pertex I've sewn and slathered seam grip over the top, worked well so far.
That the stuff in the red tube? If so it has been holding a jacket and trousers of mine together for a few years now... and they were BIG tears.
Red tube that screws apart
I've had a tube for about 3 years now and I'm slowly working my way through it. Great stuff. I tend to put duct tape on the inside layer and this on the outside layer.
That's the stuff. My oldish skiing jacket has a triangular 4 inch tear... I used that tape and 3-4 years on it is still stuck down firmly (though a few corners of the tape come off) , despite having gone through the wash a few times. Quite incredible.
Pertex: spinnaker/Tenacious tape
Round the corners of any tape you apply to help stop it lifting.
How about the iron on seam sealing tape applied on the inside? Seems to stay stuck down.
Cheers for the info everyone.
