REPAIRING A SNAG OR HOLE IN YOUR SLEEPING BAG BY YOURSELF
On a trek, you may snag a sleeping bag. The good news is that it can be repaired! Indeed, you can either mend it or patch it so that the tear doesn't get any bigger letting the synthetic fibres or feathers escape.
- You want the repair to be inconspicuous, even pretty?
If the fabric isn't too thin and you know how to sew, take the time to sew up the hole with some thread in a colour that matches that of the outer fabric of the sleeping bag.
When sewing, take care not to go through the other side of the sleeping bag. This would create a thermal bridge and reduce the insulation of the sleeping bag.
- You’re short of time and have no sewing skills?
The sticky repair patch comes to your rescue: cut a round-edged rectangle one or two centimetres larger than the size of the snag, glue it to the clean, flattened fabric and it's done - you're good to go!
