I love wearing down and I do invest in expensive gear if I know it is going to keep me warm. However, I don’t like the fact that some of my favorite gear always feels “fragile” to me. I worry about rip and tears (which is a very valid concern!)
I am starting to go through our winter gear preparing for colder days and checking for holes, tears, etc. It’s the perfect time to do some repairs too.
This year we are thrilled to get to try out the brand new company, Noso Patches. Based out of Jackson, Wyoming, they are cheap (especially compared to buying a new coat!), easy to use, and durable. Even better? They come in six different colors and a variety of designs so you can personalize your gear too (rips or not!)
Each packet comes with 3 different patches and are $14.95.
To adhere a permanent patch:
- Clean the area with isopropyl alcohol.
- Throw it in the dryer on LOW for 15 minutes.
- Rub in a circular motion for 30 seconds.
Before adhering (see tear in jacket above the patch):
After I threw it in the dryer:
You can also use the patches without adhering them permanently if you’re just using them for a fashion statement.
I do hope they’ll come in more colors in the future…and would love the option of being able to purchase them singly. I’d also love to see trees, tents, moose, bears, etc. eventually! The possibilities are endless.
