I was thinking that a thread for good, quality, repair shops would be beneficial for those out there that may be in need of service but don't know where to go. 

I will start this off with Rainy Pass Repair in Seattle Wa.

Here is a link: http://www.rainypass.com/index.htm

They specialize in repair, modifications, alterations, cleaning, etc of outdoor clothing and gear. They actually cover the repair work for alot of the top companies out there. 

They offer quite a few helpful services. Regardless of whether you need to add a window to a tent, down to your sleeping bag, or add a pocket to a pack they can cover it.

They also can reapply waterproofing to your gear. Take a looksy around the site. They offer a bunch of services. 

Again, I just though that this would be a helpful thread for those that accidentally tear their beloved down jacket that they have had for years and don't know where to go or what to do. 

Happy hiking...

ummm, if you look at the very top of this Gear Repair and Maintenance Forum, you will see that such a thread was started back in 2009. Several good recommendations already there. Since it hasn't had any new posts in a while, the auto-closer has shut off new posts, but I think Alicia would open it up again. I do see that someone named "Rick" from Pittsburgh, PA even posted there a couple times ;)

I used to drive across the George Washington Bridge (from Manhattan, NYC) and drive the short distance to Campmor, Inc., in Paramus, New Jersey.

A nice lady there in the "Repairs Dep't" always seemed to know exactly what I wanted done.   The turn-around-time was reasonable, as well as the tariff.

Now ... no longer living in Nu Yawk, I'm wondering (?) what other gear-repair facilities are East of The Mississippi.

Nothing like being able to bring in the item, and discuss with the repair technician, in person.

 I just got one of those roll-up, silicone, portable keyboards for my iPad2.   Bluetooth enabled.  Reasonable ($$).   Kinda has an odd feel, but the iPad touchscreen keyboard is NOT easy to master.

Soft ... feels like gel under the silicone.   Recommended for "head-bangers".

No need to repair a keyboard any longer (unless it is a piano / organ keyboard).
