I bought this repair kit after noticing a small hole in the mesh of my tent. The hole was less than the size of a dime, but was enough that bugs and mosquitos could crawl in under my rain fly. I called my tent manufacturing as I just bought the tent a year and a half ago, but the best they could do was have me ship it to them and they would repair for ~$35. I figured I would try the MSR Fabric Repair Kit as a simple alternative. The kit comes with mesh repair and fabric repair patches. I quickly was able to patch up the small hole in the mesh of my tent. The material is pretty sticky, so I am not worried about it coming off. The best part about this kit is that it is light weight and I can add it to my first aid kit so that if I get a tear in my tent on a trip, I can easily patch it on the trail. I would highly recommend this product to anyone to add to their backpacking kit!
