WHAT WE DO
Backpacks are one of the most important items in any outdoor enthusiast’s quiver of gear; they mould to your shape and carry everything you need to enjoy your outdoor experience.
Pack repairs include replacement zips, panels, sliders, buckles, webbing, lids, shoulder pads, frame bars and patching or darning of holes. We can also make alterations such as pockets and crampon patches, along with modifications for snowboard, ski and water bladder attachments to name a few.
A tent is your home away from home when in the outdoors, but unlike wood, bricks and mortar, most tents are made from lightweight fabric and thin aluminium poles, but with good design the total strength of the tent exceeds the strength of its individual components.
Tent repairs include replacing zips, sliders, floors, mesh, clear PVC, pole bungees, along with both fibreglass and aluminium poles. We can also re-seam groundsheets to the fly, duplicate poles and provide emergency pole sleeves plus much more.
SLEEPING BAG REPAIRS
TwinNeedle can repair and rejuvenate your bag (or down jacket) at a fraction of the cost of a new equivalent one. We use high quality 90/10 goose down with 750 loft in all of our rejuvenations.
Sleeping Bag repairs we provide are patching, custom extensions, and replacement of the zip, slider and stuff sack. We can also wash your sleeping bag and provide a down assessment, then boosting and replacing if required.
