    Goretex repair

    Hi guys, the tape is starting to let go on my old Swazi tahr, does anyone have any experience in glueing the tape back on? I tried Tarzanís grip on a bit around one of the sleeves and it is still on but anything better? I was thinking maybe a thin smear with good old silastic as I have had good results glueing work boots with it. I am ordering a new jacket but the old one will be ok as a farm jacket. Thanks in advance Steve

    Thanks sarvo I’ll try that. I glued a couple of strips on with t-rex last night seems to be holding.

    I did a test 1st as I was concerned it might melt or distort the fabric - but it was fine
    Wont last forever
    Just wish the Thieving Buggers who make that Superglue gave a bit more than a few drops per tube

    Surely arcteryx are the thieving buggers, more so than the glue manufacturer.
