Product works like the name implies

the product works well on smooth vinyl and canvas.the surface has to be really clean and apply lots of pressure when applying but all of my uses so far have held up. Its not a permenant fix for anything exposed to the elements for any length of time, but works well for a temp fix.

Easy to apply

The patch was easy to apply. It is clear, but does not blend in to the material well. Since I used it on a nylon sleeping bag, I am not worried about appearances. Have not had a chance to see how well it will wear yet.

Tear-Aid Patch on Nylon

I used it to repair a small tear in a nylon shell. A wallpaper roller is very useful for pressing the patch to the material.

Directions say not to wash the item. If washing becomes necessary I'll try hand washing and hang dry.

Works Great

I bought this product for a temporary repair to my canvas convertible top. It is easy to use and incredibly sturdy.

I had high hopes...

Disappointed with the product. It was recommended by Equinox for fixing Gore-Tex paclite material. It was very easy to appy. You just have to cut to fit and stick on. No need for messy glue. But the first rain broke the adhesion on one edge of the tape and got bigger. The tape may be suited for other material but I wouldn't recommend it on Gore-Tex Paclite specifically.
