Hi Arry and welcome!

They are PVC, or at least that's what the website says and I don't think they make hypalon versions.

I'll leave others to comment on where to get patches from, I take mine to a local RIB tube builder.

Posting a link to Fenlander's topic from recent weeks as lots of advice, links, how-to's and tips in there (page 3 in particular). All Honwaves are PVC.

Aerotec patching/glue advice.
