Does it have to be in salida/BV?

If it's a Kokatat suit, you can send it to Kokatat and they'll patch it for a small fee. Other companies might have a similar service.

I've been wondering too, where to send my one "dry" garment that is not a koatat for leak proofing. It's an older Bomber gear, and they have no repair facility.

the dive shop by me also does repairs, but I've always done my own with a tube of Aquaseal.

Before you ship that gear to Seattle, you could give Eric Lang at Inflatable Restoration and Repair a call at (719) 539-9751. The shop's right there in Salida at 3244 East US Highway 50. He's been a MountainBuzz Sponsor in the past and deserves our support. Here's the blurb about his shop from the Partner Directory:

Inflatable Restoration and Repair has been keeping outfitters and private boaters floating since 1997. IRR is a full service repair shop offering minor to major raft repair, kayak welding and dry suit gasket repair. We take great pride in providing quality workmanship at honest price. We are factory trained and able to offer warranty repairs for most of the leading manufactures in the white water industry.
Be sure to tell where you heard about him.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

Definitely call Eric at IRR. Nice guy, quality work and fair prices. I'm not sure about the Salida address though...I have always had to take my gear to his shop in Swissvale (a wopping 5 miles from Salida).

GARNA’s mission is to foster stewardship of the resources of the greater Arkansas River region through education, volunteerism and experiences.
