It blends so well with fabric that I really have to search for it even knowing where it is. The pre-cut sizes are ideal for the little rips that plague this type of gear. For big rips or rips on gear where asthetics aren't important there are cheaper options that work fine, but this is the best to make it like it never happened, and it is SUPER easy to use.
My headline is accurate. I used a toothpick to gently tuck the few pieces of down back inside the tear. I held the torn sides gently together and pressed the repair patch on. I kept my thumb firmly on the patch for many minutes as I read that heat helps the patch adhere even better. The patch has stayed in place perfectly for months with no signs of lifting. The color matches my dark coat so well I can't see the patch unless I lift the coat material closer to my face. No patch is truly a perfect match texture-wise, but it's better than I hoped for. The only thing better would be if my coat hadn't caught on something and torn. The kit comes with several patches, for when they are needed. I'd buy these patches again.
Blends in nicely so not really noticeable. I was devastated when I accidentally tore my new down jacket, but now very happy.
