Sleeping bag zip repair

Post by DarrenT »

I have broken zips on 2 sleeping bags. Anyone got suggestions of places to get them repaired/replaced in the Cape Town area?

Not sure how broken they may be, but take a look at this for basic DIY zip repairs https://youtu.be/wrSFIWG-mqU

Can't think of anyone in CT, but Christ Sports in Diep River would be able to help you out.

Depending on the brand(s) of your bags, you could send it back to the manufacturer/distributor for repair (e.g. First Ascent / Capestorm, K-Way).
