Patching Nomad Pants on 08/24/2010 17:05:35 MDT Print View

Hey all. Quick question.

I've got a great pair of ExOfficio Nomad pants and after taking a skid I've got a small 0.75" hole on the shin just below the knee. I don't want this hole to develop any further, so how would you recommend I go about patching it?

Thanks

My first thought would be to get an iron on patch from a sewing store or Walmart and then attach it over the hole. However, a cosmetically nicer way to do it may be to locate some similar material and then sew it on the inside by hand. Either way it should provide a long lasting repair.

The iron-on stuff (various methods) does bond well and last well.
