Another option to check for wader leaks is to take them into a darkened closet along with a flashlight and a piece of chalk. Insert the flashlight into the wader leg and run the flashlight back and forth over the boot and leg. If you have a pin hole, the light will seep through and you'll see it immediately. Take the chalk, draw a circle around the hole and then you can immediately patch the leak as you don't have to wait until the water dries before you can patch it.
