    Default Neoprene repair

    I need to seal a seam in my neopren waders so my boys do't get to cold ( water temp 3 Anyone use Aquaseal? or is there something better for wetsuits etc.

    I need the waders to get the docks and hoist in next weekend. I did a trial run and discovered i had sprung a leak

    Doesn't JB Weld fix anything? Can you sew a neoprene patch over the tear? Find an old mouse pad and sew it on.

    How did you manage to ruin a second pair? My Neopren waders came with a standard inflatable repair kit. So you should be able to repair it with inner tube repair cement and a rubber patch

    Brad, thanks for the video. the seam sealer is for rubber, that would have worked last year. They went out in the trash. Seam sealer and aqua sealer are made by the same company so the video proved the product worked and if they made one for neoprene then i think i am good to go.

    Sled, no big holes or rips just seapage through the crotch area around the stiching and seams. Last years waders were REALLY OLD. I must have tossed the repair kit withh the box if it was in it at all.

    JV, maybe I'd try the same seam repair or tape they use for tents seeing as you just talking a bad seam.

    I have used Aqua Sealer before on the neoprene for a dry suit. It worked fine and I had no problems.
