Default Patching a hole in my waders

I have a pair of Cabela's Gore-Tex waders that I put a small hole in. I have the fabric patch that came with the repair kit, but seem to have lost the glue or cement. Can anyone tell me what I should use? Is there a generic alternative, or do I need to stick with some kind of specialty stuff? Thanks for the help!

aquaseal is something I sell at work, I know folks that use it to repair drysuits for rescue,, just sand and clean the surface good.

Will that also work if the hole is in the bootie or should I do something else to repair it?

May want to try Shoe Goo. I've used it to patch my shoes before. I'm pretty sure it is a waterproof seal.

Aquaseal and Shoo Goo are both urethane and both will seal the leak.

HOWEVER, the Aquaseal is designed for wet suits and waders, and Shoe Goo is designed for shoe soles to be harder and tougher for wear. Go with the Aquaseal. I think it will be more flexible and more comfortable.

I'm a Goop fan and Shoe Goo is just one of a handful of sightly formulas of Goop

Here's the poop on Goop
Quote:
Amazing GOOP® and Craft GOOP® contain a thinner formula for precise, detailed work.
Wood & Furniture GOOP® is a thicker, non-slump formula perfect for vertical and overhead applications.
Automotive GOOP®, Household GOOP® and Plumbing GOOP® are all the same formula.
Lawn & Garden GOOP®, Marine GOOP®, RV GOOP® and Sport and Outdoor GOOP® are all UV-resistant.
Shoe GOO® is a more rubbery formula allowing for greater flexibility.

It's pretty handy stuff isn't it? I use it to hold eyes on saltwater flies when I don't feel like mixing and drying epoxy.
