    A guy called 'slat' or 'slats' or so knows this stuff. You could pm him, maybe you'll get a quicker answer.

    I think he worked on wetsuits for some time in the past.

    Hope this helps,

    I have spoken to someone at Tri UK due to a similar prob.As long as the tear is only superficual use some rubber solution ,the same as in your puncture repair kit and place a couple of books on it for a while untill set.

    Hope this helps . [8|]

  • Thanks for the tip adrian, I'll give it a go and hope for the best. If it doesn't just work I'll just have to buy a new one!

    See you in dorchester,


  • Hi B N,

    Last year I constantly repaired mine using rubber solution on numerous splits, all of which held. I'm about half a stone lighter this year so hopefully won't burst out of it this season!

    Good luck and happy gluing

    agreed - I think the stuff is called black witch or somethng like that. I got some from a surfing shop.

    You can also send it to terrapin. They did mine a few years ago - the bottom of the zip came away and you couldn't see where they had done it. They repair all makes
