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.

If you ripped your own dumb azz at the same time you ripped the waders, it ain’t Cabela’s fault.

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"

and second"

"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!

If you have a local dive shop they should have neoprene wet suit repair materials....which will work on your waders.

Four colors are available... Walmart will have the best price typically with free delivery $35+

Or Sika 291 (not as good, but cures faster)... I have limited experience with 291 (less than a case).

5200... hundreds and hundreds of tubes. GREAT GREAT STUFF
