The OMM Customer Support Team take you through some easy but effective fixes for your waterproof gear. Including sewing, taping & glueing.

Topics covered:

  • Common rips and tears
  • Choosing the right solution for the issue

To do at home: Check over your gear for nicks and tears, spend some time cleaning the affected areas, prepare the surfaces, making sure they are clean and dry. Brush up on your stitching skills and order up some glue, patches or thread!
