Jacket Repair

hey guys, I really dont know where else to turn to until i found this place. my mom put my favorite burton snowboarding jacket in the wash (she didnt know any better) and i guess the adhesive that held the pockets in the front together melted and ripped open the pockets subsequently allowing all the down inside to come out in the dryer. I was very sad that day to say the least and I was wondering if there is anyone or any place that would be able to repair this. I cannot find or buy this jacket anywhere else anymore. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Might as well get a new jacket because anyone who can do it properly is going to charge a grip...

You're going to be money ahead by just getting a new one imo

You can try and take it to a local taylor and see if s/he can sew it back together. Don't know what it'll cost though. Worst case scenario, as milo stated, get yourself a new jacket.

Thing is it can't just be sewn if it's a water proof jacket..... It's a pain in the ass to fix a jacket that's designed to shed water away.

If it's puked all the guts out of it and melted shit, it's trash

Stuff all the stuffings back inside and use some fabric glue or fletching epoxy.

I've tried that on a pair of my riding pants, no dice.

If he can get it to work I would love to hear how he did it... It works for only a day or two it seems like ) =

Do you have a hard time reading?

Milo is right on the money.

If it is repairable, it is pretty likely that it would cost more than it would to just buy a new jacket.

Just go get a new jacket, if washing it fucked it up that bad, it isn't suitable to be on the hill anymore.

13/14 days
60/75

14/15 days
let's not talk about it
