Description

Easily repair or beef up your Kokopelli Packraft - either at home or in the remote!

The Kokopelli Packraft Emergency Patch Kit is designed to make field-repair a breeze and to get you back home no matter what. Each of the batches come pre-coated with a "quick peel" so no tubes of glue are needed. And unlike other quick or emergency patch kits that only have a layer of urethane and the adhesive, the Nylon-Kevlar weave provides structural strength meaning your patch will last far longer and in the worst of conditions.

The emergency patches are also great if you want to add extra material to your packraft in specific areas. For example, if you habitually abuse certain parts of your packraft based on your unique adventures - fish hooks, dog claws or being heavy-handed - reinforcing your packraft is probably a good idea.

The patches work on ALL TPU coated rafts. (AirKayaks note: These patches do NOT work on the Recon).

The emergency kayak repair kit includes a canister with three 3 x 8 inch pieces of material (two main color and one black) and two small packaged alcohol wipes. Weight: 2.1 ozs.

HOW TO INSTALL

  • Cut the patch to size and be sure to round the corners. Kokopelli recommends making it about 2 cm beyond the hole or tear.
  • Dry off the area you will be patching, clean with rubbing alcohol, and allow to dry.
  • Apply the patch and then smooth out any air-bubbles using a credit card or something with a straight edge. Allow to cure for at least 20 minutes.


NOTE: A full 24-hour cure in stable conditions will create the most effective patch but obviously this isn’t always possible. An external patch in adverse conditions (rain, snow or very humid) will last a few days if you are still on the river. If you have a packraft with Tizip, an internal patch and external patch is recommend and can extend the life of the patch exponentially.

Lifespan of the patch depends on how dry and clean the area being patched is and the quality of the patch. Factors like application technique (try not to touch the bottom/sticky-side of the patch with your fingers), cure time (20 minutes minimum but 1 hour or longer is best) - and most importantly dryness/cleanliness of the surface - can be the difference between a nearly-permanent patch and one that will last just a few days.
