I’m not completely new to this, as I’ve now replaced wrist and neck gaskets on two Kokatat suits without problems. I’ve used the method where you leave about 1" of old gasket material and attach the new one thereto.
There were two things I wondered from those of you who have done plenty more than I have:
- Do you bother with a narrow bead of sealant where the new gasket meets the old? If so, do you apply it inside, outside, or both?
- For small pinholes and local abrasions (specifically on socks) where a tiny smear of sealant will fix the problem, do you apply it inside or out?
