Advice on packaging your repair items

Boots and Shoes

  • Remove footbeds
  • Make sure they are in a clean condition
  • They need to be well packaged to avoid sustaining further damage on their way to LSR

Waterproofs, Rucsacks, Tents.

  • Clearly indicate the area for repair – either by attaching a note on the damaged area of the rucsack/garment, an elastic band on a tent or by enclosing a simple sketch and/or notes.
  • You can use the garment repair chart if you find it preferable to making your own sketch (PDF – opens in a new window)
  • Make sure everything is well packaged to avoid sustaining damage in the post.


Order Form and Payment

  • Open the Repair Order Form and print it out (PDF – new window).
  • Complete all relevant sections.
  • If you cannot print the Order Form please send in a cover note with all the relevant details that would have been on the form.
  • Make cheque/PO payable to L.S.R. or pay using debit card.
  • Don’t forget to enclose the order form and cheque in your parcel, along with any sketches or additional instructions.

'LSR have once again proved to be the best in the business. My Lowa Mountain boots were fitted with a new mid sole and outer soles and are now good for another five or more years. Considering replacement boots of the same quality would have cost £150 plus this is the best option, and I don't have to break in new boots. Excellent in every way.'

'Sent a pair of Timberland Gore-Tex boots back for the ‘strip and resecure original sole’ service after another company made a complete mess of it. Was assured they would come back looking like new......and he was right! Nervously opened the box to find my boots repaired to perfection! Great job LSR I shall recommend you and use you again with pleasure.'

'Sent a couple of hiking boots for new soles, excellent quality of repairs. Good customer service too.'

'Thoroughly professional, friendly and fast service. Would definitely recommend.'

'Walking boots resoled. Fantastic job. Wore boots for first time today -really comfortable and good as new. Thanks for a superb job with no hassle in ordering or delivery.'

'Fantastic service, repaired my motorcycle jacket and even refunded me some money when the repair was easier than expected. Can’t recommend enough, thank you LSR.'

'Repaired my Rohan Jacket after I fell and made a hole in the sleeve. Fantastic job, in super quick time. Many thanks to David & Danny for their help and first class communication.'

'My 15 year old Meindl walking boots came back with a new sole and I was delighted with the quality of the work and the speed of the service. Thank you. I recommend you to anyone I think can benefit from your service.'

'I brought my lovely Haglofs polyamide jacket in for repair as my dog had caused some quite bad tears to one of the sleeves. I have just picked it up and I'm incredulous! It's perfect, such is the high standard of work I can't remember which sleeve was initially torn. I can't recommend this service highly enough, I'm in the process of telling everybody I know about their magic! Jo Whiteley.'

'Fantastic workmanship and service. Had a courtesy call to advise on price and options on repair. This is the best place in the UK for North Face gear repairs. Very happy thanks again.'
