The X-Mid fabric has a sil coating on the outside (for strength) and PU on the inside (so the floor is non-slip and we can seam tape the fly). Thus, products for silicone coatings like SilNet will stick to the outside, and products for PU coatings like SeamGrip and tenacious tape will stick to the inside.

Companies such as gearaid sell myriad products that can patch holes ranging from heavy industrial tape to a gel that solidifies inside the hole, the tape has worked best for me in the past personally

Gearaid has a new tape that will stick to silnylon and silpoly. I used it on my silpoly tent and it works wonderfully. I bought an X-Mid and ended up selling it. Not because it's a bad tent but because I mainly backpack in the Northeast and it has a big footprint. I reflected on some of the spots I have camped in and realized it would never fit.
