Introduction

Patagonia Nano Puff ® Jackets have a wonderfully soft feel and a pampering warmth which means we want to wear them for everything we do. Unfortunately, sometimes they get ripped or torn by a sharp object like snowboard edges or gnarly brush. While patching your jacket with repair tape will hold for a while, and is a great way to repair when you’re on-the-fly, eventually you’ll want to put a real patch on the jacket. For details on patching a Patagonia down jacket check out our Baffle Repair Guide.

For replacement parts or further assistance, contact Patagonia Customer Service.

I followed this tutorial and used Tenacious tape by Gear Aid because it claims to not leave a residue behind if removed. That was a bad idea. I am now ready to upgrade this patch to a sewn one and removing the tape is absolutely leaving behind a residue. Really annoyed right now.
