Has anyone had any luck fixing rubber boots (hole put in one from a stick or metal)? I see cabeelas sells a sealer for minor holes & tears - can this be done or am I better offf looking for a new pair?

+1 for ShoeGoo...it's like duct tape. A quick repair I made to an older pair of leather hunting boots has held up well for the last couple of seasons.

For a really permanent job...I take to a local tire shop(non-chain store type) & have them patch it.

Thanks for the responses - is it in the shoe section in walmart? Just wondering - never very good at finding stuff in that store.

Over the years, i've had good luck with shoe goo. Lately I've been using the LaCrosse repair kit that contains a patch piece and some Urethane glue. That works well though it is a little expensive. It comes in a small kit that you can throw into your daypack if you are going to deep into the woods. Supposedly you can just dry the surface and put the adhesive patch on.
I just got some Urethane glue that I'm going to give a try.

The best thing that I have found is a repair kit for a swiming pool liner comes with the glue and clear patches, and it has not come off in 2 years
