I have done a good bit of shed hunting in these fieldblazers. Lots of briars have done their damage. Some of the scars are pretty deep, won't be surprised if they start leaking soon. What are some good substances to use to patch the material? Something that holds, won't crack or peel.

ShoeGoo from Walmart. I've kept a pair going for 10+ years patching with that stuff. It holds and I haven't had any problems with it cracking or peeling.

While you are there, you may want to see about a cheap pair of leather boots to use on the shed hunting stuff. Briars and Mucks don't do well together.

What size boot do you wear?

Thanks, I heard of shoo goo, just wasn't sure if it would work on mucks. I have a cheaper pair of leather boots... Actually $80 pair but I need the mucks to get into swampy areas and cross creeks. Otherwise, I'd use my leather boots.

Ditto on the ShooGoo, that stuff is amazing for that type of repairs. Cut yourself some patches out of old blue jeans or heavy canvas/duck cloth and fuse the patches into the goo it will help twice fold on the repair.
