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!

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.
