OUTERWEAR REPAIR

zipper repair
Repair: full zipper replacment because of missing teeth.

Zipper repair is one of our most common fixes and is a passion for us! We repair, replace, upgrade and retrofit zippers on all types of technical outdoor clothing. Whether you just need a new slider or a whole new zipper, check out our zipper page to learn more.

RIPS, BURNS & BLOWOUTS

Repairing Helly Hansen jacket
Repair: caught a tree branch skiing and needed a patch on Helly Hansen jacket.

We patch, seam tape, and reconstruct all types of outerwear from ski wear, to motorcycle jackets and pants, to hunting and fishing jackets. Depending on the brand, we can often color match for a discreet fix, or, if you prefer something funky request a custom color.

SEAM TAPING

seam sealing
Repair: seam sealing fly low ski pants with a new heart patch.

Also known as seam-sealing, we have an in-house press to make sure that any repairs we do on technical gear is fully waterproof and good as new.

DOWN PATCHING

colorful down jacket patching
Repair: patched rip in Trew down jacket with cusom colors.

We patch down jackets, sleeping bags and fill missing baffles with hydrophobic down that is sustainably harvested. If you have a Patagonia or Kuhl product, we may be able to match the color, though it is nearly impossible for most other brands. If your jacket is new, we find that most people want a discreet matching fabric patch that covers the entire length of the baffle(s). Or you can request an embroidery on the patch or a funky-fix like this photo. We’re happy to do it!

TAILORING

Repair: hemmed and added new cuff guards on ski pants that were too long.

You don’t have to tolerate active outerwear that doesn’t fit! We specialize in tailoring of technical outerwear pants and jackets, down jackets, seam taping, and altering/moving zippers. You may mail us your item with the caveat that you are responsible for giving correct measurements.  Please measure ski pants with your ski boots on and buckled.  Be sure to allow for flex of the knee and sitting on the chair lift so you don’t mark your pants too short.  

VELCRO

Repair: replaced velcro on a Patagonia ski jacket.

Worn or missing velcro is an easy fix! You can choose from a variety of colors to match your item, or stick with classic black. On highly technical gear we can seam tape the edges to ensure you stay completely dry on stormy days.

SNAPS

Snaps don’t stay closed or missing one entirely? No problem!
