Zpacks archaul backpack seam1 answer
Would u think this would work to reseal seams inside backpack? The plastic bag liner I used has actually lifted the original seam sealer. It's expensive to get gear from them (zpacks) so wondered if this might work?
Sandy - Samford, QLD(3 months ago)
I don't see any reason why it wouldn't, but i would strongly recommend getting in touch with Zpacks to confirm. Gear Aid is an internationally known brand within the outdoor industry, so they should know the product and will be able to advice better on suitability.

stitches got big on tentfly1 answer
we have a tentfly for coleman northstar 10p we noticed one of the zippers where it was sewn the stitchholes got bigger. Can I use this to seal it?
Angela - Box Hill, NSW (7 months ago)
Yes, absolutely! This is a great use for the Gear Aid sealer, I'd also probably apply it fairly liberally to help reinforce the zip attachment as well - both inside & out.

Inside or outside of tent?1 answer
I have the canvas Coleman Tourer 9 Plus tent and it keeps leaking on where the triangular fabric tab are at the base where the side bar kit pole legs sit on. I bought this seam sealer, but unsure whether it should be applied to the inside or outside of the canvas tent?
Adam - Melbourne, VIC(1 year ago)
We no longer carry the Tourer 9, so I dont have one here to triple check the area that you are talking about, but generally seam sealer is applied to the inside of the tent. Hope that helps.

Rv1 corner repair.1 answer
Hi guys, I have my old rv1 tent that has separated at the heat seal joint at the rear corner. Would this be suitable to glue/repair this? My concern is as you would know the internal framework puts pressure on the join. Or can you recommend a better product.
Wayne - NEWBOROUGH(2 years ago)
We use Seam Grip on most of our in-store repairs, so it should do a good job of repairing your rear corner join. We'd recommend giving this a go, and seeing how it works under tension, but we're pretty confident it will work well.

Mat leak1 answer
My self inflating mat has a leak where the material has come away around the (rubber?) valve housing. Would this sealer be a good choice to fix it?
Daren - Forest Hill, VIC(2 years ago)
Generally, failures around the valve housing are covered by warranty, so if your mat is still within the warranty period I would encourage you to make a claim. Alternatively, this sealer would be a great option, it might also be a good idea to get a small piece of nylon fabric to go over the sealant as well to reinforce the repair.

Seal pin hole leaks by itself?1 answer
I have a Black Wolf 2D Super Deluxe that has developed pin hole leaks along almost the entire length of one of the seams. The leaks are in the top surface material at the edge line of the seam where it is against the mattress core. Can I apply this product over this line to seal the leaks? Does it need any additional patch/material to cover, or is the seam grip sufficient on its own?
Janet - Beverly Hills, NSW(3 years ago)
Yes, Seam Grip is an excellent product for this, and it's what we use here for repairs on self-inflating mats. The other thing to note is that this sounds like it might be a manufacturing default, so it would be worth submitting a warranty claim form for assessment.

Is this suitable for repairing jacket seams that have come apart?1 answer
I have a waterproof jacket where the seams have started to come apart (no tearing or holes, just separation) - is this product suitable for repairing this? Are there any other options I should consider? Thank you.
Jin - Sydney(3 years ago)
This should do the trick based on your description. Gear Aid have some great repairs videos on their website, so it would be worth having a look at those for some tips and tricks too.

Can you fix minor cracks and cuts in leather of hiking boots with it?1 answer
Intention is to prevent the cracks/cuts becoming wider and deeper. They are app. 1 to 1.5 mm deep now. The boots are still fully water-resistant; it is only about regaining physical strengths of the areas affected.
Ulf - Katoomba(5 years ago)
It's not specifically designed for leather, Ulf, If the cracks are in a spot where the leather is flexing then the glue may not last long, and if you use wax on the leather then you may have issues with adhesion. It will also change the appearance of the shoe, that is, you will see a patch of glue on the leather.
That being said, this stuff is pretty good, and it's more than likely going to have some effect at prolonging the life of your boots, but only temporarily and treating the leather to keep it supple is potentially a better solution.

Nylon tear1 answer
Will this work well for fixing a small rip in a nylon tent?
Jack - 3158(5 years ago)
Gear Aid Seam Grip will be fine to use to repair tears in a nylon tent fly but I'd be careful if it's the tent inner. You can watch Gear Aids little demo video for this here to get a few pointers. If it's the tent inner I'd probably just try to get it sewn.

Will it fix canvas stitching1 answer
We have a caravan with pull out canvas ends and in each corner the stitching has stretched and can see daylight through the stitching and is now leaking would this be suitable to seal these corners thankyou
Chris - Traralgon (6 years ago)
Popping some Gear Aid Seam Grip Sealer & Adhesive would work really well on the corners of your caravan pullouts. I would suggest either just stitching the holes a little or putting a patch over them to be extra safe when protecting against further leaks.
