    I'm not a massive fan of the "for gamers by gamers" slogan, especially on apparel. l'd like it to be a little more discreet so as not to invoke the "1337 gamer" stigma when out in public with non-gamers. I'd like to replace the patches with a single one of these though and possibly a "team razer" patch where the "for gamers by gamers" patch is if they exist.

    Hi there @laenlive, I totally understand your concerns and desire for discreetness. I take great pride in my hobby, but alas, the patches on the Windrunner are too much for even me! I haven't purchased said jacket solely because of the patches.

    Anyways, personally I would not recommend what you're planning to do. I don't own these items myself, but the patches are likely to be attached to the jacket via either heat-bonded adhesive or thread stitching, or worse - both. Either way, I wouldn't recommend trying to remove them and risk damaging the jacket if you don't have any experience with irons or seam rippers.

    What I would recommend is for you to buy another jacket with minimal branding and attaching a Razer patch of your choice to that. At least that way, you're not limited in jacket style and patch placement position. Another option would be to place patches of the same size directly on top of the ones already on the WindRunner.

    If you really are intent on your original plan of removing them, just be careful. You'll need to rip the stitches, sew the new patch onto holey fabric, and possibly use an iron. You wouldn't want to do a sloppy job and mess up a brand new $100+ jacket.

    Thanks for the reply, I was planning to get a professional to do it, Iknow I don't have the skill to do it myself. I really love the look of the jacket, I'd just prefer a little less "LOOK AT ME I'M A GAMER!"
