i was wondering a few things about seam sealing. Spacifically I am talking about a pair of pants (Jagged Edge North Wind Pants) i THOUGHT were already sealed, but it turned out, much to my annoyence, that they were an eariler model which is NOT sealed. So here's the my questions:

what's the lightest, most effective way to do it? (tape, glue, applicator type?)

Can a good job of amatuer sealing equal that of a manufactured job? i.e. Will it last as long and work as well?

thanks as always,

Daniel

Also, if anyone knows of a good "how to" on this matter, could you please point me towards that?

thanks

Get hold of a copy of "The Essential Outdoor Gear Manual",by Annie Getchell. It has a good section on seam sealing, as well as several other useful sections.

This site sells tape and seam sealants. At the bottom of the page there is a short instruction on how to tape a seam. Seams pretty straight forward (pun intended).
