    I used a tire patch on my waders 3 years ago and am still using them to this day! Any local autobody should do it for you around 10 bucks.

    Did anyone notice the Alaska Gold TV show where the guys were diving, scooping up the sea bottom?

    Looked like they had patched wetsuits with white RTV or Silicon Seal.
    If it would work on a wet suit, it might work on the neoprene part of waders.

    SG20 is another type of urethane adhesive same as AS. Hodgman has one and there's others out there. I've tried a number of them with similar results. SG20 mixes with a curative which is good if you don't have time to let it set up. AS also can be purchased with a curative. My favorite pair of waders have been patched so many times, they're more urethane adhesive than neoprene. I'd get a new pair if they still came in the same camo pattern...

    Not sure if this is the most current thread for subject of patching waders but I have some recent experience that might help others for patching neoprene waders. Get a half pint can of DAP contact cement original not new safer formula. Cut suitable patch from a neoprene beverage cooler sleeve (koozies in some parts of our USA). Do an outside patch with 3 or 4 coats of contact cement--apply cement to the fabric side of the cooler sleeve. Works good and keep the contact cement for other projects/fixes. Seal the can/lid with duct tape, it will last for years unlike aquaseal, etc.

    Aqua seal is meant for neoprene. I have used it on boots as well but I tire patch would be better
