    I have an old goretex Phoenix Phoxhole bivy.
    Some of the tape is pretty lose, some has come off, looks like the glue has given up.
    I'm expecting most of the tape to start loosening now the bag is being used.

    Looks like the only tape available is the iron-on tape. I can see that being a faff to do well.

    I wondered whether non-adhesive tape is available or
    I can glue the iron-on tape using seam glue instead of using an iron.

    Any suggestions?

    I bought some seam grip.
    But can you use that on the iron on tape as well?
    Don't fancy the faff of trying to iron this, especially the awkward bits.
    Really I'm after non-adhesive tape, which you can glue on.
    But where to buy that?

    Seam Grip can be used as an adhesive, although I've never used it to glue that type of tape. Just Seam Grip on the seam would be the way I'd go.
