neoprene wader repair

need some help/advice.  i ain't a big fan of neoprene cause i sweat like bryant mckinney on a mankato practice field.  but, the selection in this town wasn't good.  so, i bit the bullet on a $225 pair for late season hunting w/ 1600 grams of thinsulate.  don't do much water hunting.  but, i have gotten back into it a bit more the last few years while waiting out the lull between the local birds getting smart and the northern birds showing up.   i also wear em in the field during late season duck hunts sometimes in lieu of boots and bibs.  anyways, i wore them once, hung em in the garage and went to put em on the next week only to find a hole chewed in them from a mouse.  i have found a couple of products online that claim to work.  but, i don't want to waste my time and money and have to remove a patch that ends up failing.  anyone ever fixed neoprene?  and what did you use?  thanks.

I've use a product called "Goop" and it worked well for a hole in the seam of my neoprenes, but I have no idea on how to patch a hole in neoprene.

If they are a Scheels brand just take them back and get a new pair. They will take there product back if there name is on it....

lol... i've thought bout it.  i hate to admit it... but, they were bought at wal-mart and we all know they have a pretty liberal return policy.  the only other place in town only had one option and they didn't have em in my size and i needed them "now".  so, i couldn't wait to order them.  however, this ain't a leak in a seam.  its a hole.  caused by a mouse.  i would think even walmart would hesitate to take em back.

 Contact Cement and a Rubber Patch {bicycle tube}

Just make sure you coat both surfaces and let the cement dry BEFORE you apply the patch

I use Goop (holes in Muck Boots for instance).

But I make a little side batch of thinned Goop (thin with xylene) that I use to pre-soak/coat the area to be mended (soaks into fabric/pores better). I also use the thinned Goop to "feather" the edges better than is possible with the original thick goopy Goop. Thin to about the viscosity of Bailey's.
