This is a great example of why you should NOT use duct tape to repair your GoreTex garments: This pair of Marmot pants were otherwise in pretty good shape. The owner had a problem with one of the zippers and duct taped it shut from the inside. They continued to use these pants and sent them in for repair at the end of the season. Since the duct tape was on the INSIDE, the adhesive got into the laminate layer of the material and caused more damage when we removed the tape to get to the zipper. If you must use duct tape, please put it on the OUTSIDE of the garment! Better yet, go to REI and get some Tenacious Tape- this tape does not leave a sticky residue and will not damage fabrics. Or just send it to Rainy Pass Repair and we will get it fixed the right way!!
