    Use the neoprene cement if you can. It's the real stuff... I always use some tape, too, on the inside of the tear. You can remove it from old suits sometimes. I peel it off in big strips and keep it before I trash my old suit. But... as a last ditch effort, to get that last session in, if you don't have time for the cement, you can use Crazy Glue. I've done it dozens of times, and you can be in the water in minutes. But... it dries hard and will eventually fail, so it's not a true repair. Just a trick that can get you in the water so you don't miss the swell...

    Well this solution worked for like 2 weeks. Now I'm in the market for new 5mm five finger gloves. I guess I will hold out for Whiskey to post some unless anyone knows another cheap vendor?

    I wouldn't advise AquaSeal

    The Aqua Seal they typically sell in surfshops is thick, and clear, but from my experience it yellows with age and even worse, it hardens and becomes a prime source of skin irritation. Standard industrial strength neoprene cement (from most any dive shop or similiar supplier) comes in a 4oz metal can http://www.overtons.com/modperl/prod...t&merchID=4005 and works just like contact cement. You use the can internal brush to swab both edges that you are planning to join, and let them dry for 5min. Then re-coat each surface and let dry for another 10min before joining the pieces together- just like two pieces coated with contact cement. Just be careful not to overdo it. Slopping glue everywhere usually makes things worse.

    And unless your seam is a critical stress point as well, I wouldn't recommend stitching unless you can do a blind stitch. All those little holes just invite more cold water flushing.
