Can anyone give me any tips on how to pinpoint a leak in my waders. It's a pretty small leak in the right leg. I don't actually get enough water in them to build up puddles in my boots, but just enough to saturate my pant leg and sock. They are neoprene waders.

At first I thought the leak may have been coming from the seam between the leg material and the boot, but now I'm thinking it might be a little bit higher than that. Any tips would be much appreciated.

Turn them inside out and fill them with water. The leak will show up and then just dry the area off and patch accordingly.

No I'm not sure there's a hole. It very well could be a compression leak. I'm gonna read that website real quick.
