Default Jacket Repair

I emailed 686 about repairing a tear in the outer shell I received in one of their jackets, and didn't get a response, so I'm hoping this crew can help me. It's an "L" shape, 2"x1", I'm wondering if I can use an iron on patch inserted through the hole and then ironed from the outside? I'm worried if the heat to melt the adhesives is going to melt the synthetics in the shell.

Have you tried looking for a shop around you that does jacket repair? I know Triple8sol had a weld done on one of his shells and you would never know it unless he pointed it out.

I haven't. I'll google that up.

Jackets generally have some type of synthetic fiber that doesn't like heat much. I wouldn't be putting an iron on mine.

Check local clothing alteration places. If its got a liner, odds are they will have to sew all the way though...
