I picked up a BA bivi bag recently and missed a couple of tiny (5cm) tears near the base of the bag. Can anyone give me any tips for repairing the rips and what to use?

Much obliged!

That tape looks a brilliant addition to my overland kit.

I presume it'll work on tents, mats, sleeping bags, rucksacks, panniers, motorcycle clothing, waterproof over gear etc..

Oh yes!..... its good stuff....

HINT: buy more than one meter.....as soon as your mates find out about it they will scrounge 'just an inch for this mate'.....
' oh can i use some of that tape to repair my .............'.....You have been warned! :lmao:

Always good to hear of folks repairing things instead of just lobbing them out.
The spinnaker tape is good, I've a few repairs that have lasted years, patches inside and out. Another idea is McNett Gore-Tex repair kits/patches and they also do the Tenacious tape. Or, good old fashioned seam sealant. Whatever you use, make sure the area is clean before you start.
