I've had a bit of a look round the forum but couldn't find anything definitive on this.

I have a small circular hole in the canvas of my swag – approximately 8mm in diameter. I’m looking for tips on how best to repair this?

Thanks

Gday
I repaired my bed roll with a piece of canvas and a liberal smattering of silicon .

Don't forget to water proof area with wax.

You can buy a piece of canvas at Spot light or such like.

I then used a canvas hand tool called 'Speedy Stitcher'. So handy. Don't buy imitations as I did at first - they don't work. These are available on eBay or just google for them.

Cheers

As the others have said already, there are multiple options for gluing on a patch. I had a hole like this in my swag and a matching one in my sleeping bag. A coal expelled from the largish fire we were all sleeping around after a day's riding in the high country. Nice memories.

'Twere me I'd be looking for a slightly flexible urethane adhesive, such as aquaseal. Stick the patch on from the inside, smear a bit over the top from the outside. More waterproof than the rest of the swag.

Cheers

I've used a product called Tear-Aid. Very easy and has lasted.

The product I use is Storm-Sure.
It dries to a transparent, flexible but robust consistency.
Cost is about $15 per tube.
