It's time for some repairs during the split. I've got a few leaks in my neoprene waders. I've found a few things online to repair them. But wanted to find out from you guys of what you've had success with or failure. Any thoughts would be welcome.

I used Goop on my leaks this year. Held up well since I patched them up first weekend of teal season

Goop is the only thing I have ever tried.

Shoe Goo. Just used some on my waders the other day. Working like a champ thus far.

I repair mine with dollar bills.....throw leaking waders away and use the dollar bills to get me a new pair of waders! Seriously though, I got tired of leaky repair jobs years ago. If you take care of your waders, they last a lot longer. I clean mine up after season and put them back in the box and put them inside the house in my man cave closet. That summer heat in the garage will break down the material of the waders and make them weak.

If you put a hole in them does not make sense to get a new pair of waders. But once they start leaking in the seams, or the boot, time to get a new pair.

Aqua seal. It's made for wader repairs. It stays flexible but very tough. If you are unsure of where the leak is I sugest filling up the waders with water and with the pressure from the water it should leak to the outside reveling the problem location.

Or just put them on, go in to the water, handy if you have a pool, when they leak pull them off and turn inside and wet spot is where it is leaking. Hopfully you got an obvious hole on the out side easy to see, leaking in the seam they are toast...
