6 tube patches. Weld at base of T-zip had small leak and was patched with aqua-seal. Had discussion with Alpacka on this type of zipper issue and their opinion was that when leak is contained to near base of zipper repairs are pretty effective and that type of zipper is unlikely the result of overall zipper rot which can cause widespread leaks.
Whitewater spray skirt, thigh straps (installed by us), backband, foot pillow! In-tube storage (cargo fly) includes 2 internal dry bags.
Despite having a few patches, it holds air great and the zipper should be a good for quite a while with proper maintenance. The thigh straps and foot rest make this almost as capable as any gnarwhal in terms of whitewater ability.
