Depends on the tear. I made a "L" shape tear in mine about a 1/2" each way and used some goop I bought at academy to patch it. Kind of like silicon. Has been working fine since then. Not sure how long it will last though. Pretty easy to "patch" up that way.
just pin holes......I wore them this past Friday, wading in front of big boggy....was worried about the bacteria scare, so broke them out....maybe had half a cup of water at the end of a four hour wade......
only caught two keepers.......but the positive was both of them were over 20"
No problem then with the goop. You put some on the inside of the waders on the pin holes, let dry, then put some on the outside of waders on the pin holes, and let dry. Anything over 20" is a nice fish.
They aren't breathable underwater so I agree they ought to call 'em light weight waders.
I have some Simms I've had for four years with no problem. I wear them all winter with layers of fleece depending on the temp.
It would have to be super cold to get me back in my neoprenes.
