Ah the pain of putting a big rip in waterproof gear. The feeling of water slowly trickling in makes it even worse… Or how about the fit not just being quite right? A zip that has finally died a death?
There are a number of options available to repair and alter outdoor equipment though... Save money and fix a jacket or overtrousers that have minor problems, and keep otherwise good gear out of landfills.
