Hi I’m Kim, the Founder and Creative behind Rugged Thread. Every year thousands of tents, jackets, sleeping bags, backpacks and outdoor adventure gear are discarded or tossed into a closet because of lack of knowledge or access to repair and replace broken zippers and rips.
Rugged Thread is passionate about repairing quality outdoor clothing and gear for individuals like you, as well as developing relations and new technology with manufacturers to repair instead of replace broken warranty items. I find that most outdoor adventurers and weekend warriors don’t know how easy and inexpensive it is to repair technical clothing and gear.
We specialize in technical sewing, repair, alteration and tailoring of outdoor adventure clothing and gear including snow sports, cycling, camping, moto, river and hunting clothing and gear. We work on technical ski and snowboard clothing, motorcycle clothing, tents, backpacks, sleeping bags, camper zippers, soft-sided luggage, boat and RV canvas, sails and much more.
Find out for yourself why REI, Patagonia, Mountain Supply, Pine Mountain Sports, Giant Loop Moto and Gear Peddler in Bend refer their clients to Rugged Thread.
Got a broken zipper? F it! We replace, retrofit and upgrade all kinds of zippers including outerwear jackets and pants, down jackets, life vests, tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, and even camper trailers and awnings.
