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

While we have friends who’s jackets are held together with duct tape, it’s far more effective, not to mention easier when it comes time to change layers, to simply replace a broken zipper in your fleece jacket. Here’s how.This guide will walk you through the steps necessary to replace the zipper in your Patagonia fleece jacket. We’ll be using a Bernina 830 sewing machine, but the procedure should be similar on most machines with a mechanical stitch width dial. Check your owner’s manual for instructions specific to your machine. In this guide we’ll be using contrasting thread for visibility. When it comes time to do your actual repair, you’ll want to use thread that matches the color of your fabric.
