It happens when you least expect it. That new down vest or cozy sleeping bag catches on something and suddenly it’s ripped. Repairs can be costly and time consuming. The common “duct tape” patch doesn’t quite cut it.

That was the thinking of Kelli Jones, an active outdoorswoman who wanted to find a better and more fashionable way to patch rips and holes in her nylon gear. She tested hundreds of formulas and developed Noso® Patches featuring heat-activated technology. They stay in place, and no sewing is required.

The patch is easy to apply. Just stick a Noso on clothing or gear and then throw it in the dryer—or just leave it in the sun. The heat activates the adhesive and fixes the patch in place. It won’t gum up like other adhesives can, and it withstands extreme weather conditions and multiple washings. The patches also reduce textile waste by making gear last longer.

Noso patches come in a variety of colors and patterns. They’re more than a patch—they’re a fashion statement. Adding the patches to tents, packs and other equipment customizes gear and makes it easily recognizable. For more information, visit
