Someone to repair down jacket in Bristol area?
« on: 19:30:57, 31/12/19 »
Can anyone recommend someone to repair a down jacket in the Bristol area? I live in South Gloucestershire, to the north of the city, and have ripped my Mountain Equipment Arete jacket :-( I've tried sewing it up myself but it's got worse and is shedding down.

Try Lancashire Sports Repairs. Not local to you but they do excellent work.Can't think of anyone else. That's where ME will direct you if you ask them. As a short term fix you can buy adhesive patches to cover the rip.

Mountain Equipment recommend these as repairers in their FAQ's http://www.mountaineering-designs.co.uk/shop/2/index.htm

These are a couple of alternative repairers

https://www.scottishmountaingear.com/down-services/repairs

These are Bristol based they don't do repairs but do sell self adhesive patches for a relatively simple and cheap DIY repair (see the video)

Thanks both. Have ordered some patches as a short term fix. Ideally want to avoid sending it away anywhere.
