I did a nice job burning a neat little hole through the top layer of fabric. The foam underneath is fine. Anyone ever have to do a repair on a pad before? Will manufacturers hook you up with a replacement cover or do a repair for you? Just want to patch it somehow before it gets worse with use, and try and make it look decent in the process. stephen chiu

duct tape, looks badass and requires almost no effort, or you could sew on a patch. who cares what it looks like, it's either laying in the dirt or stashed in your basement. Keenan Waeschle

Option 1: Buy it from the dude you borrowed it from - be willing to take the responsibility for damaging it; 2. Patch it - get it done right. Go to a reputable place that can repair packs - gotta be some place near you that can double stitch cordura or similar material; 3. Duct tape - see notes above; 4. Seam Grip the hell out of it. It'll look like you REALLY enjoyed using the crash pad (wink, wink); 5. Select one of the above WITH the dude that you borrowed from and include multiple frosty beverages to smooth things over.

I have a triple mad pad that was just falling apart due to cheap stitching and cheap material (with all that said this pad is still awesome). Took it into a local seamstress, removed all the foam and they patched and stitched it up in a matter of 15 minutes... I think it works better than it did before now. Monty
