Drysuit repair patch (Membrane)

I have a membrane surface dry-suit that I managed to put a clean 2mm slit in it today while searching from a body (I'm guessing I got it snagged on a thorn/briar)

Can anyone recommend me where to buy a repair kit for it? I found ones on eBay but they mention neoprene, my suit is membrane.

Thought i'd ask here as lots of you guys use dry-suits.

Thanks a lot folks.

PS. Nowhere locally sells them

Half of Ireland are wearing Drysuits to work this week . Most inland body searches here involve a lot of scrambling on poorly maintained riverbanks, drains, etc. Too wet for the Polis, too dry for the RNLI, so unfortunate lads like alt get tasked with it

Hi chewy, sorry I missed your question. When you said "What were you searching for", I thought you meant what was I keywords was I googling when searching for a patch!

Yes, was doing a search for a missing person, we were searching in bog drains etc. close to his house. Anyhow, he was found alive and well.... the other side of the country (think he's lost his brain)

Hit the nail on the head there. We're also the only ones stupid enough to do it!
