How can I repair it?
Just back from France annd notice a small rip of about 5mm on the base of my golight pinnacle rucksack. Is there any simple way to patch it?
Errr, with a patch...
If you've nothing suitable you could probably get a fabric sample from someone like Point North and then just sew it on. If you don't trust your needlework a local mending/altering service should be able to do it cheaply.
For 5mm rip you could probably just darn it, using a tough thread to close the hole and hold it together.
For a rip that small I'd probably use Seamgrip. Put a bit of tape on the inside of the pack covering where the damage is then just put a thin layer of Seamgrip on the outside where the hole is. Let it set for a day and job's done.
Going to try the tape and seamgrip first
