Duct tape is relatively unknown here, and surely it was 10-15+ years ago
So, what to do when my pants took some damage?
The answer, thanks to my mom (well, who did the job was my grandma, it's handy to have a seamstress in the family...)
The Dalmatian has been there for at least 15 years...and is still smiling
There is at least one other repairing patch on those K2 trousers (yes, K2!)...still I like to take 'em off the closet now and then and take them for a tour on the mountain...if it is not too cold..the thermal padding is completely worn out...
