Repair Guides

Self-sufficiency is a key foundation of bikepacking. We have therefore created the following guides to help you carry out minor repairs on your packs. If you require spare parts or have further questions please email [email protected].

  • Scissors
  • Repair tape

  • Clean: Clean the affected area and allow to dry
  • Prepare: Cut the repair patch to the appropriate size, allowing 2.5cm of space in each direction and rounding the edges
  • Apply: Remove the paper backing from the repair tape and apply to the affected area, applying firm pressure

SHORTEN STRAP – WEBBING

 

What you will need:

  • Scissors
  • Lighter

SHORTEN STRAP – HYPALON

  • Ensure that the strap remains long enough to attach the pack securely
  • Carefully trim the excess Hypalon

 

WATERPROOF SLIDER REPAIR

 

What you will need:

  • Ruler
  • Chalk
  • Gear Aid tape / repair tape
  • Scissors
  • Scouring pad

What you should do:

  • Clean: Clean the inside of the slide rail. Dry. Move slider away from the base of the pack.
  • Mark and cut: Mark 2cm from the base of the rail. Cut across the rail with scissors. Be careful not to cut the rubber seam.
  • Re-rail: Push slider back to the base. Push the tip of the slider over the cut seam to re-rail. Push the slider to the top of the pack.
  • Reseal: Measure and cut a 10mm x 25mm patch from the Gear Aid Tape, rounding the corners. Place the patch over the rails, starting with the outside. Be careful to ensure a smooth, level fit. Push rails together below the new base of the pack to seal. The patch will now function as the new slider stopper.
