Anyone used this stuff on wetsuit seams?

Considering trying it out on a leaky Patagonia R3 so I can at least use it as backup/spring suit.

Yep, I did it to a Patagonia Hooded R3 (now in the for sale section!). It works ok actually, doesn't seal them perfectly, but does the job. Make sure you tape out the edges of the area you want to cover, and put it on thick enough to get right into the seams!

I bought this. Worked great on some leaky knee pads. Correct colour too.
