Patching Gore-Tex Clothes

5 posts in this topic

I went to the Cabela's sidewalk sale this weekend and bought a pair of snowpants that have a 3/4 inch tear in them. They have a carbon lining and gore-tex. I don't care if they let any scent out, but I would like to make sure it's waterproof when I'm done. Anyone know where I could find waterproof fabric or how to keep the patch from leaking at the seams?

Gore-tex does make a repair kit, they sell it at Cabela's. It goes on the inside and repairs the membrane keeping the waterproofing intact.

If the tear isn't in too critical an area (crotch, knee, etc) I would use a evenly spread blotch of sportsmans GOOP. The stuff's amazing at sealing up small holes and stopping a broken thread from unraveling. It will definitely be waterproof when you're done. I've also used it to re-cover the toes of my Rocky boots after the mfr coating wore off. Great stuff!

Hey I hit the tents also! Bought a pair of 120$ waders for 18$, knowing that I could fix them with a little dab of AQUASEAL.

Aquaseal works. Any question email me.

I bought the snowpants for $20. The tag said they normally sold for $259. I got a hell of a deal now that I know how to fix the tear. Thanks guys!

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
