Hi Ian,

The materials used for Ron Thompson waders are:

Ron Thompson breathables are manufactured from a highly durable Japanese 3-layer fabric

Or manufactured from strong and extremely durable woven nylon material

And finally 4.5mm high-stretch Neoprene

Unfortunately in the first two cases it would require a specialist repair to make it long lasting.
You could try using a puncture repair kit for bikes but I'm not sure if the glue would hold for long.

Did you buy them using a credit card? If so check the card's finer details as a lot have free insurance for a short period of time for purchases.

Sorry can't be more help

Hi Ian

You used to be able to get some stuff called 'Aquasure' that I've used previously to repair ordinary rubber waders.

I don't know whether it'll work with neoprene but it may say on the tube (I think it costs about a fiver)

Oh - once you've opened the tube, keep it in the freezer otherwise it sets solid.

neoprene repair kits can be bought from outdoor type shops specalising in water sports. Some thing like this may do the job.
