Put a huge hole in my waders today :(

Postby 98ramtough » Sat Nov 06, 2004 10:03 am

I got a big rip in my neoprene waders today. Its about two inches long and in a V shape. I have never tried to fix something like this, should I try to patch it or just buy new ones?

Neoprene waders patch easy just start on the inside with the glue they make for it and glue a big patch over it getting lots of glue into the rip then do the same on the outside give it lots of time to cure and they should be good as new. I spent almost 200$ on my neoprene waders from Cabelas and it would really hurt to throw them away the first time they got a rip ( the second time I wore them) Cabelas has a kit for fixing them. I dont know what it's called but they should know if you ask( sort of like a bicycle tube repair kit only the patches are really tough.
