    Just reproofed a Haglofs jacket i have had for a few years now and followed instructions but on inspection some of the taped seams in and around the hood have peeled away :arghh:.
    The rest of the jacket is fine just a scattered peeling of around 30cm in total.
    Can this be repaired or has it seen its day :(

    Yes, repairable. You can iron the tape on yourself after peeling away the defective parts of tape, or send it off to be repaired. Plenty of types and colours on Ebay to match your existing. Neatly brushing on a liquid PU sealant (Seamgrip) to the seams will also do the job, albeit less attractive.

    Try ironing the tape back down, if that doesn't work then a dab of seam grip should hold it down. If it's completely done you could have a crack at taking the tape off and redoing it with new tape or seam sealing with seam grip.

    Thanks chaps.
    Had sold the jacket that day on ebay but when i reproofed that day it peeled off so had to cancel sale :arghh:
    Oh well it was to fund my new one i bought last week but looks like i will have to keep it now ;):D..
