When you want to fix a hole in a pair of jeans quickly and with a minimum of fuss, go for an iron-on patch. They’re easy to use (like patching a bike inner tube) and durable. Be sure to purchase a patch that’s clearly labeled as an “iron-on."

For replacement parts or further assistance, contact Patagonia Customer Service.

  1. Examine the damage – cut off any long threads and clean off any debris. Grab your iron-on patch.

    • Grab your iron-on patch.

      • We are using a contrasting patch for visibility, but you may want something that matches with your jeans or a fun contrasting color.

  2. Preheat your iron according to the recommended settings found on the packaging information included with the patch. Take a scrap of denim and place it inside the pant leg, beneath the hole. This scrap material will keep your patch from sticking the front of your jeans to the back, which would effectively seal the leg opening shut (not a good thing...)

This is useful, but I hope we can see more. In particular, my kids have many holes in polar fleece pants that they love. You can't do an iron-on patch with fleece (the synthetic fiber can't take the heat), and sewing on a patch doesn't seem like a great idea since the material is stretchier than the patch. Does Patagonia have advice on how to repair these?
