Ever ripped a hole in your pack (or any other gear) while out in the backcountry and had to MacGyver a solution with a piece of dental floss, duct tape, or that crusty old band-aid you found in the bottom of your first aid kit? If so, this backpack repair kit is for you!
Tear-Aid® repair patches are a super simple, ultra-light, and ultra functional method of patching holes and tears while on the trail. Tear-Aid® repair patches are constructed from an exceptionally tough, abrasion resistant elastomer which will not only hold water and air but are also puncture and tear resistant even under pressure and when stretched. Tear-Aid® patches expand and absorb force on impact, always returning to their original shape and size. This flexibility allows the patch to conform to irregular surfaces (like a pack) without restricting the movement of the repaired material, and they won’t fall off when stretched.
These ultra-tough elastomer patches are coated with an aggressive adhesive that’s formulated for high bond strength. Tear-Aid® patches cut to any size with scissors and adhere instantly; no sewing or messy glue required.
Tear-Aid® patches are see-thru, so they work well on any colored pack without looking like you’ve obviously patched it, and they’re UV resistant so they won’t yellow for years.
Tear-Aid® Type A Patches stick to the following materials:
- Most fabrics
- Polyurethane Non-oiled Leather
