Non-Rafting Gear Repair in Colorado

Where is the best place in Colorado to have gear (sleeping bags, tents, etc.) repaired in Colorado? I used to have a guy in Dillon who repaired boots, and he turned me on to a place in Boulder for gear repair. But that option is now gone. REI and most other mfg's use Rainy Pass Repair in Washington State, but I was looking for something that didn't require shipping. So far I read good things about Stitch Lines. Anyone have any experience with a good repair source? I ripped a nice gore-dryloft sleeping bag that needs a bit of a stitch. Thx

I just had a small tent repair done by stitchlines, and that is who I was going to suggest.

I heard they do good work, but take a long time. Anyone had experience with Boulder Mtn Repair?

As I understand it Boulder MTN sometimes takes large contracts (road flags for Antarctic expeditions as an example) and thus isnt always available to make repairs in a timely manner.

My friend owns the Repair Lair in Minneapolis she is world class with gear repair, I would mail my stuff to Nancy if I were you. Tell her that Newt sent you!

If you are in no hurry whatsoever, then Stichlines is a fine choice.

+1 on the wait time at stichlines. A few years ago my tent zipper took 8 weeks. Rumor has she has a contract with REI for repair and can get buried with work.
