Jackson Hole is contributing their awesome product for a design contest. We have not six, but eight original @Dave Petersen designs to choose from. You, our readers, get to choose which designs get produced for these exclusive patches. The first round of eight will run until September 19, 2022, then we will combine with Instagram where we will go down to the final four so we can choose the winning two. These cloth patches are roughly 2"x2" and retail for $8-15.00 ea.

In both rounds you will vote for your favorite patches, and eventually five winners will receive a Noso Patch Pack and additional SkiTalk swag. Then the patches will be available in our SkiTalk store with 25% of the proceeds going to the US Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame.

Please don't think these high quality patches are limited to covering mishaps; They are ideal for showing your support for SkiTalk.com as sleeve or hat patches. Heck, we might even have a future contest judging the best patch application!



So What Is a Noso Patch?
Super simple: A patch to fix that super expensive jacket or inexpensive garment you cannot part with, or tent, or whatever, that - wait for it - does not need to be sewn! Hence the name: “Noso Patches”.

About Noso Patches: In 2015, our founder Kelli Jones hopped a barbed-wire fence while she was hunting and ripped her brand-new $400 Patagonia Fitz Roy down parka. The only thing she could find to repair it was a piece of duct tape, but didn’t like the way it looked. Nylon gear rips all the time, and she had a lot of tears in her clothes, so she sourced materials online to cut into heart and star patches. In the tram line at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, people kept asking about them. In August 2016, Noso Patches successfully launched on Indiegogo. Currently Noso Patches are carried in over 500 specialty stores in over 10 countries, and they have received thousands of orders from around the world.
About author
Philpug
I started skiing in the mid-70s in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania; from then on, I found myself entrenched in the industry. I have worked in various ski shops from suburban to ski town to resort, giving me a well-rounded perspective on what skiers want from their gear. That experience was parlayed into my time as a Gear Review Editor and also consulting with manufacturers as a product tester. Along with being a Masterfit-trained bootfitter I am a fully certified self proclaimed Gear Guru. Not only do I keep up with the cutting edge of ski gear technology, but I am an avid gear collector and have an extensive array of bindings as well as many vintage skis.
