How to fix a hole in a sleeping mat

How to fix a hole in a sleeping mat

Alpkit warehouse

At the Alpkit premises on my visit in June 2015

At the start of 2015 Alpkit invited me over for a fish and chip lunch to take a look at their office/ production facility/ warehouse and a few weeks ago, finally, I made it over there.  They gave me some great tour of their workshop and showroom as well as showing me some of their fantastic kit.  Their gear is developed in the UK and a large percentage of their gear is made over here by the people who do the sports. It’s great to see passionate people who are into sports making products for the sports they love.

We heard on the grapevine that they’re developing some new clothing lines – trousers and jackets.  Keep an eye on the Alpkit website to find out about their ever-expanding range of equipment & clothing.

A gift from Jay at Alpkit to help me repair my sleeping mat, which has a hole in it.... somewhere.  He also gave me some tips on how to find the hole...

Now you might think I must have got lots of freebies on my visit, as I’m raving about them so much, but that’s not the case.  The people at Alpkit are genuinely friendly, interested in what they make and skilled in designing and making kit that’s fit for purpose and meets the needs of users.  What they did give me was a freebie of Stormsure and a quick ‘how to’ session to help repair my sleeping mat, which has a hole in it.  Thanks Jay.  If you want to find out how to find the hole in your sleeping mat or how to repair a sleeping mat I made a short film* to show you how.  Here it is:
