Finding leak in waders

My breathable waders are leaking.  How do I go about finding the leak? Or just buy a new pair.

    Got access to an inground pool?  Put 'em on and walk in very slowly looking for bubbles.  
     
    Otherwise get 'em full of air and submerge the part where you think they're leaking in a bathtub till you see bubbles.  
     
    Shoo Goo works well to seal the leaks.

    I agree with rsquared's method but you can also turn them inside out and fill whichever leg leaks with water and find the leak.  Mark it with a sharpie and use aquaseal to patch from the inside.
     
    I'm assuming they are stocking foot type.

    Ya that's what I've done. Turn them inside out and fill leg up in the tub. Pinch the wader above the leak to make a seal. The water should seep out at leak.

    Hi Dave
    Yes, they are the stocking foot wader.
     
    Where can I purchase isopropyl alcohol?

    Walmart should have it.  Wife says it should be in the drug section.   If you can't find it we should have some if you want some.
