In the case of leaky neoprene waders, it is first necessary to determine their condition. We pour water into the waders to the area at the knees. All defects are marked and photographed, the leg is lifted and the boots are examined from knee to hip. Again, we mark and photograph the defects. This is also repeated with the other foot. For neoprene waders, defects come in the form of tears, wear, and multiple joints between neoprene.
