Tapped Seems

Taping seams aids the waterproofing of clothing. Needle stitching leaves holes in the garment through which water can seep through when worn in wet conditions, however taped seams prevent this from happening. Every seam produced creates hundreds of needle holes that water can get through. Applying copper tape seals the seams to keep moisture from passing through also has the added benefit of preventing any chills from getting through.
