repairing gore tex
2:09:32 PM
I tore up the gaitors on my boots pretty bad on a recent expedition. The boots are the millet one sport everest, which have an inbuilt gore tex gaitor. The gaitor is quite thin material.

Ive looked around and seen some of the gore tex repair kits available (stick on type) but i dont think they'll work, considering the amount of damage. Short of forking out $$$ for a new pair, anyone got any ideas for a fix?

I may have to resort to the stick on patches and reinforce them with stitching, cant see any way around it myself.. any ideas?

Looks like a nasty crampon scratch...

Seriously though, I ripped the thin top section on my OR gaiters, and had them repaired with thin weight cordura and ordinary nylon thread.

You could perform the same repair yourself for only a few $. Use dabs of seam sealer to hold the shredded gore-tex onto the cordura, this may also help with the sewing

If all that sounds too hard, send the boot / gaiter down to Remote Equipment
