Anyone have any recommendations on where to go for stitching repair on a Dakine Nitrous harness?

The stitching ripped clean off on my lower attachment strap.

Try a shoe repair shop with industrial stitching machines.

I've had my old Dakine Seat Harness repaired at the Dakine Factory in Hood River in the past. Cost was reasonable, but the quality of the repair was outstanding. I don't know for sure, but that shop seemed to prefer referrals sent to them directly by the local commercial stores. You have to be able to leave the item for a couple of days.

Locally in Vancouver, just about any shop with an industrial sewing machine should be sufficient as long as the original support materials in the harness (e.g., reinforcement panels) are still intact and the harness just needs patches of heavy-duty fabrics to hold it all together.

Dakine was kind enough to replace the harness free of charge under warranty.
