Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro A reliable patch kit for a good price
The Rema Tour patch kit is compact and easy to use, the patches will hold really well if applied correctly. They're not the absolute cheapest, but the price is still very good considering the high quality of the patches.
Pro Ruffled edges help to indicate if the patch has stuck well
The patches have ruffled edges, which make peeling the plastic wrap off more difficult- this is a good thing. The plastic wrap will come off easily once the edge of the patch has vulcanized with the rubber tube properly. By making the edges ruffled, Rema is helping you avoid leaving badly glued patches by accident.
The patches come in a small box (1.6 x 0.9 x 3.2 inches) and weighs only 2.1 ounces. It'll easily fit in a saddle bag or backpack.
Pro Easy to use
The Rema patch kit includes a small square of sandpaper for roughening the tube. Many patch kits include a small grater instead of sandpaper to roughen the tube, but sandpaper does it more evenly and is easier to control than a grater.
Con Included instructions could be clearer
The instructions included in the box tell you the basic steps, but they don't mention the handy tips and tricks, like letting the glue dry before applying the patch.
