I got a set of waders from Rogers sporting goods(Warranty) after the first pair sprung a leak in the boot.

Now I got a new problem. I punctured the new pair by apparently kicking a shell. My thought is that they are not going to replace these when they already replaced a pair... But I'll still ask them...

Anybody have any experience trying to patch a wader boot? It is a pretty small hole right in the tip of the boot where it starts to curve under....

I found a hippo patch. It appears like it may work but wanted to check on here to see if any of you guys had a better solution other than buy a new pair because that's not an option.

I literally just got these a few weeks ago. Only the 3rd hunt in these...

Goop E-6000 shoe repair (glue) - will stick to / fix anything!
I keep a 6-pak of the mini-tubes in my travel bag - saved me on many things many times (mini-tubes won't dry out on you).

I tried flex seal on an old pair of waders and it didn't adhere to the rubber.

I found this stuff online that is designed specifically for rubber boots and other outdoor gear including waders. It is called SG-20. It is a 2 part fast curing adhesive. It sets up in 20-30 seconds and is cured within an hour.

Going to give it a try. The reviews all look really good too!

I don't know how it would work on waders, but I use it on my rain coats all the time. I ripped a pocket about 2/3rds of the way off, laid the coat out flat on the tailgate and put the pocket back in place and painted the liquid tape all around the pocket and its held up very well. That was about 4 or 5 months ago.

Buy a new pair of boots if you can't patch them. Why should a store replace an item that you damaged?

Go to a scuba shop and get a dry suit repair kit.

if its a small hole, not a tear, maybe try a tire plug. The kind you would use on an ATV tire.
Only issue may be trimming the part on the inside of the boot.

It's one of those holes where once I pulled the shell out, you can't even see it without having to stretch the rubber to expose it...

The Goop E6000 (same co as shoe goo) will stick to ANYTHING, and is extremely strong when dried.
I've glued plastic to glass with it (and fixed rubber boots too).

maybe cut a piece of inner tube and use the E6000 to adhere it. Then repeat the procedure on the inside of the boot. Put the waders on and fill your bathtub to test them before u go hunting and end up mad.
