Default Ripped pants

What is the best repair for a rip in the leg of snowboard pants? These are Burton pants, basically brand new. I ripped them on the corner of my scraper for my tractor. I don't care about looks, just want something to keep them from ripping further and possibly dumping snow between the layers.

Thanks

I'd use duct tape I fix tents and horse rain rugs with duct tape... If the fabric is dry and clean when applied, it's amazing how long it lasts. The last patch on the back part of a rain rug endured a season of rain/snow/countless wallowing in mud and maschine wasching and still holds.

I temporarily (maybe permanent) used duct tape to keep it from ripping. I had heard of using it, but never knew whether it would actually work. The pants were completed dry and warm and I applied warm tape and it seems like it sealed really well. If it doesn't hold up, I'll apply the gore-tex kit.

I'm certain nothing will hold up forever as it is right on my knee cap and I typically fall 1-2 billion times a day trying new stuff that I rarely stomp.

Thanks for the help,

Jason

I know you bought, but wanted to post this for future reference to others. I've used this before and it worked fantastic. help up for a few seasons and even held in a 1/2 day of solid rain. no leaks.

Well, my local hill opened today and I tried out my duct tape repair. It only lasted about an hour. I thought for sure it would last but it opened up after a fall.

The gore-tex I ordered was cancelled due to being out of stock of the tan color. They decided to tell me that yesterday. So I orded the above tape repair. I'll see how this works out. If it doesn't do the trick, I'll be raiding my mother-in-laws sewing room.

Thanks for all the help.

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

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.

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
