The simple answer is no.  MaxCell can be repaired in the field if it’s damaged but there isn’t an easy solution to field splicing.  If any of you have ever used the repair kit in a field setting you know how arduous a task it is to get the layers aligned.  The plastic repair kit will join the two section together at the seam but doesn’t joint the two pieces of fabric together continuously so it can’t be used as a splice in a pull situation.  MaxCell is spliced in the factory roughly every 600-650yards.  The splice is a sewn lockstitch configuration extending the entire length of the two adjoining pieces in order to go through the folder as one continuous piece. 

The next question is could you sew a splice in the field?  It has been done but you need power, a sewing machine, and someone who knows what they are doing to make this happen.
