I think I'm going to buy 3oz of down from (because Thru-Hiker doesn't ship down to Spain).

I will also buy a seam grip or adhesive from the same shop, to add extra protection.

Which one do you advise me? (definitions from their site).

Seam Sure (liquid): water-based urethan-seam-sealer. For seamsealing of lightweight, waterproof synthetic fabrics. Dryes as clear, flexible and durabel film. For heavy-weight-fabrics like Cordura 500den please use Seamgrip

Silnet (liquid): ideal for seamsealing of siliconcoated fabrics. Waterproof, elastic and UV-proof.

Repair-Tape, Tenacious Tape, McNett: UV-resistant, transparent tape for easy and fast repairs of tears in fabrics. Not suitable for very smooth surfaces like silicon-coated fabrics!

Gore-Tex repair kit: Self-adhesive repair patches for Gore-Tex fabric. The patches stick very good and last for several washings. Also work great on non-gore-tex-fabrics.

I've ruled out products that need to be ironed because I'm afraid of burning the jacket.

The question is... only adhesive or adhesive and tape/fabric?, and what brand?.


I've also seen that some people uses a glue called E6000, cheaper and flexible.
