Holes in a down jacket can mean being a walking pillow-fight. Prevent feathers from leaking and ensure that the hole doesn't grow with a temporary patch. While patching your jacket with repair tape will hold for a while, and is a great way to repair on the fly, eventually you will want to put a real patch on the jacket. For details on patching a down jacket, check out our Baffle Repair Guide.

No parts required.
Inspect the damage. Clip any dangling threads, fabric, or feathers using small scissors.
Grab your repair tape.
Flip the repair tape to the back side.
Using a permanent marker, draw an oval slightly larger than the hole.
Cut out your shape using scissors.
Lay the shape over the hole to ensure that the patch is large enough. You want the patch to be reach the fabric on all sides with at least an 1/8" of overlap.
Using your fingernail, or a pin, peel the backing off the repair tape, so that you only have the clear sticky layer.
Lay the tape over the hole and press the tape down with your finger.
Use a fingernail or a spudger to work all of the air out of the tape, rubbing it and pressing down on it with a warm palm until it is well-adhered.
