Did the seam tear open or did it rip a hole in them?

With fine thread, you can sew the waders and apply a generous portion of Aquaseal or Loon UV Repair. Keep the holes from the needle fairly close to the torn fabic. The sewing is just to get the gap closed, so you don't need to be precise. The "goop" you apply will make the waterproof seal, the thread just being a bit of reinforcement so the stress isn't all on the goop once the repair sets up. Bruno showed me this trick and it worked well on a gash I put in the knee of my waders.

Tom, i glued the darker side down to the inside of the waders. Meaning if you look inside, the colors match. And troutbuster, i didint even catch it on like a sharp corner or anythign, it was just on the normal edge that runs alltheway down the guard rail, all well.




ok, that's what i was asking...i'd give returning them at least one try...

Mute,

Just got mine in the mail yesterday. I've never fished with breathables before (used either neoprene or rubber), but these tseem awfully thin. I've looked at the breathables in stores and seem to remember them being thicker/more durable than this. Nice waders other than that. The feet in them are very neat/comfortable with that special material. I'll give them a shot!
