Repair Information

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably pushed the limits of your GORE-TEX garment.
Good—that’s what it was made for.

If your product is damaged, you’ll need permanent repair by a Gore-authorised Repair Centre, or by the manufacturing brand. That will get your gear back to its best, and maintain coverage under our GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise. Read more about our promise here.


Need a temporary solution to get you through your adventure until permanent repair is possible? Our easy-to-use Fabric Repair Kits allow you to make instant repairs to make sure your outerwear stays waterproof—no matter where your adventure has taken you.*


  • Each repair kit contains two press-on adhesive patches, precut to standard shapes that usually don’t require trimming.
  • Use the right repair kit for your fabric, and carefully follow the instructions and procedures for your type of garment.
  • If you apply a patch while out in the field, iron it after returning home to significantly increase its bond strength and wear life.
  • Patches are not recommended for permanent repairs. Follow up with a Gore-authorized Repair Center, or the manufacturing brand, for a professional solution.

*For damaged garments with GORE-TEX with SHAKEDRY™ Product Technology, permanent repair by a Gore- authorized Repair Center or the manufacturer is needed to get your gear back to its best, and maintain coverage under our GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise. Do not apply the GORE-TEX Fabric Repair Kits.
