Default uses for old neoprene waders?

I've got a pair of 5mm neoprenes that have developed pinhole leaks in the seams. I've lost some weight, so even if they could be repaired, they would be ill-fitting. I plan to get new ones.

Any thoughts on what to do with them?

Have a look at Recycled Waders and see if anything they've got on there interests you. You could send them in and have them make you a few things I'm sure.

Aquaseal the seams and use them for duck hunting?

I've used the 'socks" for under under my float tube fins and I made some knee pads that often come in handy around the house and garden.

Try this - a self-containment device, and strike indicator in a pinch. Can't vouch for the results when it comes time to evacuate the contents...:

This place is making laptop cases out of old wetsuits. Should be the same thing.

Use them for a Halloween decoration or costume? Or do gardening in them, mow the lawn etc.

Giant mouse pad that fits the whole front of the desk, so you can kick back watch TV and BS on the forum in max comfort.

Reel cases if you have a sewing machine that will sew through it. I have one that will and I will turn my old waders into stuff like that when they die.
