Aqua Seal. Neoprene patch + aqua seal if there is a hole. Dry waders completely before patching.
This is my professional advise as well. Use a good, heavy duty backing tape if the tear is more than 1/2", then aquaseal or shoe goo.
This guy ^^^^ just may have fixed a pair or three.
Two and a pair of over-priced muck boots……last week. Lol, holy waders are no fun below freezing.
Was thinking the other day, and I think I’m in waders about 4-500 hrs per year. “And not in a good way”, as they say around here. Still better than working for the man.
Well, I worked for "the man" but I much preferred being in the waders than in the office shuffling papers!
Hated crew waders "Oh, just grab a pair hanging in the wader room" . No thank you. Whenever I'd start a new job it was first order of business to get on the computer and order a new pair
If the man complained I'd tell them first,
" there's dumbfuggs here that will put a hole in a pair, not repair it, not tell anyone, and hang it up on the hook again and just grab another pair. I want dry waders when I work"
"I know what I have on my feet, but you don't . Are you sure you want to get in my waders after I've worn them?"
Nothing like getting in some near freezing water in a pair of leaky waders some azzhat didn't bother to repair. I kept mine in my locker usually!
