Another wear patch query

I'm going to put some more wear patches on the tubes....The tubes are fairly recent (Henshaws 3 /4 years) and still in good nick, but are taking a bit of punishment from twinsets etc....and we are looking to do more dive charter this year....

I have a pair of patches which were on the boat when it came, and want to add another two or three each side to match....same material /shape etc...

I have attached a pic....Question is, can these be bought off the shelf or should I be buying material and cutting them myself?

The material used is smooth in appearance....not sure what it is, thicker than tube hypalon.....Any Ideas?

I'm guessing that they were fitted by Henshaws themselves....if Chris is reading this, wonder if you could confirm, otherwise I might drop a mail to them on Monday....

Any guidance appreciated...

Hi Dan,
I inquired about this a few months back and you can buy them ready cut from Paul and I expect Chris does them too. And the price is good
