You judge people on the hill as lazy fucks if you see them with duct tape patch repairs? I could care less how anybody else chooses to patch their holes.

slyder My vote as well, seamstress, find someone to sew it.

My kids pants were messed up around the gators as many get. I borrowed my sister-in-laws sewing machine and did the best I could. Still together, yours is in a more visible spot, take it to someone that knows what they are doing. Probably $20 at most...

t21 take it to a seamstress on your local area or a Dry cleaning place, they should have a seamstress of their own. I took my pants there this past summer for a repair on my snowpants and they done a great job.

seriouscat tenacious tape on a high wear area. Gore tex repair kits if it doesn't have much normal contact.

Thanks for all the help.
I only put a piece on the inside of the pant. I undid the seam where my lining was and they placed the tape on. Resewed the lining and it lasted a long time

trapper Looks like ripstop material to me, so an old fashioned sew job should hold it together fine. If you don't really care how it looks, you could just use a light layer of aquaseal around the repaired seam. I've used aquaseal quite a bit repairing fishing waders and it holds up pretty well.

Bones I just used that tape for a tear in my jacket.

If you can, try to get a piece on the inside as well as on the outside. Also, round all the corners on the patch

stuff works great
