Re: Sewing repair to replace shock cord in GorTex shell

Can anyone recommend a place to have a shock cord replaced in a TNF GorTex jacket. I know people who can sew, but I'm not sure sewing a high tech jacket is the same a ordinary clothing.

Hi @NAE1777 - Thanks for reaching out! You are right. Sewing waterproof and technical layers is indeed more complicated than many other fabrics. We recommend Rainy Pass Repair - an authorized Gore-Tex repair center. They can be reached at 888-747-7867 or

Hopefully your jacket is back in working condition soon!
