    Tents

    Q. My tent fly has torn, can you fix it so that it will not leak?

    A. We can fix tears and cuts in tent flys whether they are PU coated nylon, or silicone nylon constructions.

    All of our repairs on tent flys are seam sealed and are completely waterproof. We also can repair rips and tears in the insect mesh and cotton fabric inner.

    Q. My tent floor leaks, can you fix it?

    A. We can thoroughly test the waterproofness of your tents floor and find if the leaks are caused by perforations or the fabric failing from age. We can repair leaks, we can replace the floors in most hiking tents. We can also make up custom waterproof footprints for most hiking tents on request.

    Q. I have broken / split one of my lightweight tent poles.

    A. We carry a small amount of alloy tent poles from many, many varied brands of tents and often have the piece you may need. However we do carry Easton, and Yunan branded pole in stock at all times.

    We can replace sections, re thread with shock cord and supply new end tips.

    We can also duplicate full pole hoops on request and supply emergency pole sleeve / splints.

    Q. Can you make my pack waterproof?

     A. We can wash and reproof the outside of most packs with a durable water repellency treatment, most canvas packs should remain waterproof as they age. Alternatively, if the synthetic polyurethane coating on the inside fabric of your pack has peeled away or deteriorated, we are able to construct pack liners or dry bags to keep your gear completely dry inside the pack. We can custom make dry bags to suit all applications.
    Q. I have a hole in my pack, can you patch it? 

    A. Yes we can.

     

    Q. Can you add extra pockets to my pack?

    A. We are able to manufacture all sorts of custom components for packs, we can make up cramp on attachments, hydration bladder pockets, ski / snowboard attachments. We have made rifle holders for hunters, PLB pockets and even attachment points for snow shovels. We are also able to make up modules to fit standard molle webbing, or even attach molle style webbing to standard non military packs. (see our custom work pictures for some of our past work)

     

    Zips

    'Vislon' style plastic toothed zip top. Standard coil zip below.

    Q. My zipper doesnt zip up any more, can you fix it?

    A. Zips will generally require one of two things. A new slider, or a full zip replacement. Zipper sliders are designed to wear out before the teeth on the zip do. Most of the time, if the teeth are seperating when you do up the zip, its a worn slider. We can replace most sliders easily, many we can do on the spot too. We only carry quality YKK sliders and zips.

    If the teeth / coils are damaged, crushed or torn from the fabric we are able to perform full zip replacements on almost any pack, tent or item of clothing. This includes water resistant jacket zippers and sailing apparell.
