Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
Hi, well that's certainly a good idea, however i doubt that it would last long term.. i feel you would simply be spending good money after bad, as it were. You see the trouble is that this is one of the most movement prone areas of the whole waders. I don't think anything short of vulcanization would effect any sort of reliable seal, for very long.
If it were me i think i would cut my losses and get myself a better quality pair of waders, as I know from experience that anything "Glues" with material simply fails after a short while, I mean one cannot even seal a water bed reliably with those products, long term.
In saying all that though, it may be worth a try, but i would try to get hold of some vulcanizing stuff to effect a repair such as this and try that, Neopreme isn't all that structurally sturdy, and i fear it would simply tear along the repair path in use?
As a though, why not coat the entire insides of it with some sort of conformal coating sealant, this would at least keep the water out.?

Hi,if re glued, there is every possibility that it will go off and you will need to re glue and continuously like that ,If you can handle that,you can go ahead, But if you can not i guess you might need to replace it.
