I've contacted Alpkit and they replied within 10 minutes !!!! I have two options... apparently they can send me an iron on patch or I can return the jacket and they will fix it for the cost of postage! Even though I haven't decided which option yet, what brilliant service from Alpkit Now which would you do.... do you reckon they are better at fixing it? Only issue being of course the weather is about to turn cold so I'll be wanting to wear it.
