    Fabric question. One of the pockets in my camelbak has ripped open at the bottom. It's a small flat
    pocket (think maps) that opens into the main compartment now that it's ripped. It's not worth sewing
    (since I can't sew and it's in an akward place.) It's not a big deal but I was thinking there may be
    some type of easy fix with an adhesive. So my question is, are there any fabric adhesives that work
    well on nylon (I think it's nylon) fabric?

    I just asked her because she's a woman Simon. Funny thing is I can't figure out she mountain bikes
    being preggers and not wearing shoes and all.

    while cooking.

    I actually DID ride pregnant ( a hundred years ago) but it gets real tricky when your knees start
    hitting your protruding belly.

    gas, goo-gone or goof off, rubbing alcohol works sometimes. Use all solvents carefully and test to
    make sure they won't melt the fleece.

    you can also cut the sap off if it's not too deep using a razor blade.
