    Patches on a framebag?

    Man, I have all these sweet iron-on patches. How do you put them on your framebags? Just iron them on?


    Slightly worried about melting a hole in the XPAC fabric. If someone else has patched successfully, let me know!

    Buy some badge magic. Air Force buddy clued me in on it.

    That's what I ended up doing. Sealed the needle holes with seamgrip afterwards for good measure.

    Max, seam grip works fantastic on top stitching with Xpac. It's basically 100% waterproof - bags I've seam sealed with Xpac only ever leak at corners, never at top stitching. So good call!

    How does the Badge Magic hold up in high temps? I'm in Southern California and definitely take the bike out in high 90's to end ride in the triple digits.
