    Sewing up torn booties

    The zipper is coming loose from the top of my bootie. It was sewed on originally. Do I need a special thread to resew it? Can I just put Aqua Seal on it and glue it back?

    I would do a sew job with monoline and the follow up with some aquaseal

    Is that the same as monofilament?

    $50 to replace them or $5 to fix them. This might make a good poll!

    Dental floss actually makes pretty good line for simple repairs to scuba gear. Very strong.

    Just don't use cotton thread. It won't hold up to water well.

    I dunno, my wife's were $15 (on sale, admittedly). That makes for a tougher call...

    What, no one calls it monoline anymore? That or soke good polyethylene thread. As noted, do not use cotton!

    They are fairly new and otherwise in pretty good shape. They are not torn just pulled away from the zipper at the top. It's where my fiance pulls to get them on.
