Use repair patches for small tears in your pack, shelter or garment made from Dyneema™ or Ripstop-Nylon. We suggest that you carry some repair patches in your emergency kit. These are very easy to use: Clean the surface – best to use alcohol and a napkin, but you will probably have to use water and dry it well. Don’t use wet wipes or hand sanitizers with skin cream. Next step is to remove the protective foil from the patch and apply it. Pressure the entire patch with your fingers to make good adhesion.
