Sleeping Bags & Mats
Can I repair holes in my WOLFMAT?
Yes. The WOLFMAT can be repaired with the enclosed repair kit, which is also available in-store:
To locate leaks, manually blow up the mat as firmly as possible. Then either hold it under water or spray it with a fine film of water.
Small air bubbles will reveal leaks. Mark these areas and let your WOLFMAT dry. Then deflate the mat and close the valve.
For small punctures, place one to two drops of glue onto the site of the leaks.
Let this dry for at least 60 minutes before using the mat. Caution: do not touch the wet glue!
When repairing larger leaks, spread the glue thinly in a circular motion onto the dry, clean and possibly slightly roughened surface.
Spread an additional thin layer of glue onto the back of the patch. Caution: do not touch the wet glue!
When the glue has dried (after approx. 2–3 minutes), place the patch on the mat and press down, stroking gently from the centre outwards. Smooth out bubbles and creases.
Afterwards, press down firmly and leave to dry for at least 60 minutes (should the tears exceed 1 cm in length, 120 minutes) or ideally 24 hours.
In damp conditions or when temperatures are lower than 5 °C, drying times increase by around 50%.
