    I pinched my waterproof ex2. There was no hole. It resulted in a weeping area by the waist. After an hour dive, my insulation would be wet, but not saturated.

    The leaking area could not be detected by inflating the drysuit and doing a bubble check. I think that only works for holes, not weeping. I finally located the exact area by inverting the wetsuit and filling it with water.

    the weeping area was successfully sealed by covering the area around the weeping material with a layer of aquaseal. It seems durable and is no longer leaking. Since I have no reason to remove the aquaseal, using aquaseal should not be an issue versus a removable sealant.

    Watch this before spending money. I really like this guy. Not dry suit related but good information regardless.

    From my limited experience so far I don't see why a thin coat of aquaseal / mek 50/50 wouldn't work. Stuff is almost the consistency of water. Fairly cheap as well. I would tape il n a circle around the area to kee it confined to that area.

    I've only used this on my drysuit gloves, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. The number of ayer depends on the material.

    I ripped a hole in the right knee of my Hollis Neotek Semidry and used a combination of neoprene patch on the interior of the knee. Then large circle of Goop Plumbing Sealant and after that dried sprayed on Black FlexSeal over the exterior knee pad. Works great. It’s tougher now than before.
