Thermarest's Permanent Home Repair Kit makes a repair using strong adhesive that requires a 'cure' time of around 4 hours, hence more convenient for home repairs.
The Permanent Home Repair Kit uses a wet adhesive and fabric patches to make the strongest and most durable Therm-a-Rest mattress repairs possible. It is also the best choice for repairing larger tears. Works on all Therm-a-Rest mattresses, including NeoAir. *Requires a 4-hour cure time.
Kit includes: (3) Alcohol Prep Pads, (6) Glue Dots and (3) Cover Patches.
Thermarest's Permanent Home Repair Kit uses a strong adhesive that takes about 4 hours to 'cure' - this may not be a practical proposition while on a trip - hence this kit is for home repairs. The alternative is the Instant Field Repair Kit which uses sticky adhesive 'dots' to glue down a patch instantly to cover a hole or small tear in a mattress. The glue dots don't need to 'cure' like some adhesives and so the mat can be used straight away after a repair.
