Default Repairing neoprene

While putting my waders on today, I have noticed that I am starting to wear a hole in one of the toes of my stocking foot waders. What can I do to repair this before it becomes a full blown hole.

Aqua Seal the area, if your boots are real tight this can be a problem due to the fact that the Aqua seal has a presence as far as being bulky.

What brand wader? If they are Simms they will put new feet on for ya.

They are orvis. I think I have some aqua seal or something similar floating around the back of my truck. Probably try a thin coating on the inside of the toe and the outside. Maybe a good toe nail clipping is in order too. haha

Definitely go thin, less is more with Aqua Seal. You can always add another layer or two if needed. I am horrible with repairs, though I've had to do them on fishing trips. If you do without them for a bit, I would recommend sending them back to Orvis Wader repair. They can inspect the entire boots and fix anything before it becomes a problem. I recently sent a pair in and had them back within about 2 weeks and did not ask for priority. When they came back, they had found a few more suspect areas that they sealed up for me. If they are under warranty, repairs are free of charge. You just pay shipping to Orvis.
