At Rainy Pass Repair, Inc, we specialize in repairs on outdoor garments, such as:


We can patch most types of outerwear, from waterproof ski gear to down jackets to heavy-duty motorcycle gear. Patches on waterproof gear are seam sealed from inside for optimal performance.

With all patches, we try to match the color as closely as possible, but we cannot always guarantee a perfect color match, especially on patterned fabrics. We strive for a factory finished look on all repairs, but some patches will be visible due to the nature of the damage. On request, we can create patches to incorporate the repair as design feature. Feel free to give us a call or email a photo of your item to and we can try to come up with a solution to meet your needs.

Zipper Repairs

Zipper repairs are by far the most common repair that we see at Rainy Pass Repair. In many cases, we can repair zippers by simply replacing the zipper slider, which is the metal moving part of the zipper. We stock many styles and colors of zippers, including waterproof zippers. We can replace just about any zipper on your garment- the main zipper, pocket zippers, pit zippers and fly zippers. We can also add a new zipper to create a vent or pocket.

REI vest zipper replacement

This REI vest had a small main zipper that broke. We replaced it with a larger 2-way zipper.

This Mammut ski jacket needed a new main zipper, so we replaced it with a waterproof zipper that was similar to the original.

Friction Patches

Are your ski pants getting shredded by your ski edges? Is the fabric getting worn to shreds from carrying your skis or snowboard? We can add friction patches to areas that are exposed to heavy wear & tear. We use abrasion resistant Cordura fabrics and we can often match the garment design so the patch looks like it was always there.

Alterations & Modifications

Are you looking for the perfect fit for those ski pants that you got for a great deal? Perhaps the sleeves of your jacket are just too long and it is driving you crazy. We can help. Rainy Pass Repair can alter all types of garments, from GORE-TEX® ski wear to motorcycle gear and everything in between. We aim to create a factory finished look in all our alterations. In addition to sizing, we can also add features like new pockets, vent zippers, or a zipper to make the hood removable, just to name a few. Give us a call or an email and we can discuss any custom features that your heart desires.

We can shorten or lengthen sleeves and pants from afar, but most other types of sizing alterations will need to be brought into the shop for an in-person fitting. We charge $83 per hour and each alteration is different, based on garment construction and the fitting needs. We discourage re-sizing garments because it is often not cost-effective. Please give us a call to arrange an appointment for a fitting. Also, please note that the demand for alterations is very high during the winter- allow 4 to 6 weeks to process an alteration during the peak months of Nov-March.
