Repairing holes in waterproof clothing
Q. My waterproof trousers gained a small hole during my last trip to the Lake District.
What is the best way to stop this turning into a large hole?
What are the best products out there to repair waterproofs with?
A. After getting an ice axe pick sized hole in my waterproof trousers I used the big innertube repair patches you can get at Halfords, one on the inside and one on the outside. The skin underneath eventually repaired its self.
