I have a pair of hodgeman 3.5mm noeprenes for about 1 1/2 yrs and accuired a hole.What is the best way to go about this repair? I have never successfuly patched previous waders. I love the neoprenes but next pair of boots will have the changable studs. Thanks Dave.
Goop :) Slather it on, and let it dry. Some of my holes filled with Goop go back to about 5 years and holding. I usually get mine from barbed wire while duck hunting.

All manufacturers of neoprene waders reccomend Aquaseal. If it's a puncture simply cover it with the stuff. If it's a rip, first sew the rip tightly together, then slather with Aquaseal inside and out.

Go with the aquaseal! This stuff is tremendous. I've patched my waders twice with it and have has zero trouble since. I'm going on 6yrs since the repair and I hunt them pretty hard.
Heh, after telling my success with Goop, just this morn a puncture hole that I fixed with Goop about 4 years ago opened up a bit, right on my left cheek :)
I will get some Aquaseal and try it before the weekend. But the greenhead was worth a wet arse :)

Where does one acquire Aquaseal?

Any outdoor store with camping, hiking equip etc. should have it.

I have used Tear Mender with great results.
