Losing my fluff!
- Who repaired it?
- How long did the repair take?
- How much did it cost?
- How was the object repaired?
My down jacket has a lot of holes in it from briars, campfire sparks, life in general. I was constantly leaking feathers. We bought a patch kit online that is specifically for patching down sleeping bags and jackets (that have really soft fabrics). The kit comes with replacement feathers, tweezers to stuff them in, and self adhesive patches. It’s worked pretty well except the adhesive on the patches is a bit weak. When I have to put more on I’ll reinforce them with a bit of more serious glue.
- Why did you repair the object?
The jacket overall is still useable and very comfortable. I don't want to replace it just yet.
- What would be important to you to be included in a Repair Declaration for Ireland?
We should have a place to purchase commonly needed repair kits without having to have them shipped in.
