The simple fix for that is to keep some gore-tex (or even rip-stop) tape handy. If you don't care about fashion, you can fix em up for years.
That's what I was thinking. As it happens I just put a small hole in my Arcteryx jacket yesterday around 1-2 cm from the reinforced elbow
:. The jacket is 4 years old and has held up to lots of abuse up to now, maybe it's a good excuse for a new one
One pair of pants is slighty damaged elsewhere but the cordura on the ankle cuffs has held up well. Bought some heavy duty cordura and am planning to have it sewn onto the bottom of the pants.
Tried some patches but they don't seem to hold (maybe I'm using the wrong tape what exactly are you using?). Is there a better way to have ski clothing fixed? (e.g. Repair by manufacturer, patch with glue etc)
