Wader repair.

Post by Watty » Tue Jun 26 2018 19:19

Hey chumps,
Iv got a hole about 4mm wide in my waders. It says the outer layer is nylon and the laminate is polyurethane. Anyone know of the best magic goo to fix them? Never seen it done. Cheers

Stick the tube in the freezer when you have done, makes it last longer

Some years ago I had a similar problem. Although I am sure the advice above is sound I tackled the problem differently.I bought from an aquatic shop a pond repair kit, several patches and adhesive. Did the job well and no leakage now.
Just old and knackered.

it stands the test of time also, i holed some neoprene waders 3rd time out sitting on a cheap folding chair 12 yrs back. i used them last season and still the aquasure repair doing the job. key the area before application as well as using a back up patch on the inside.

I've a pair of chest waders I use a lot whilst piking. Think they've a pin hole somewhere as they do let in a bit of water.
Any tips for finding out where the said hole is ??

Fill email up with water Dave and stand them upright. Should see the leak then.
If you do put a picture up as could do with a laugh. :laughs:
