Here’s a demonstration of us fixing a nasty rip in a wax jacket quickly and cheaply. The cost of the repair came to less than £4 (a fraction of what a replacement would cost) and the jacket is now reliably sealed and waterproof. The following is a list of things we used:
- 1x Nylon fabric patch (available in 3-packs here)
- Stormsure Flexible Repair Adhesive 5g RRP £2.70
- (Optional) Glue spatula
- (Optional) Isopropyl alcohol
- (Optional) Fabric wax
SAVE YOUR MONEY: Don’t replace – repair!
