    my son bought a second hand OMS wing, after getting it home he found a pin hole in the bladder.
    Can anyone make any recommendations on what is best to patch it with, apart form the obvious chowing gum

    I patched my one with a blob of aquaseal.

    It's lasted 10 years so far.

    A small pin hole can be fixed with Aquasure, as @jps said above. A bigger hole or rip can be better fixed with TearAid (Type A)

    I had a couple of pinch holes that I repaired with Tenacious tape, which I found in a local Cotswold Outdoor shop. Similar to tear aid for repairing camping equipment. Working fine so far.

    Thanks guys, I will pass that on to him.
    We are both off to Porthkerris next weekend so he should be able to use it.
    Thanks John.

    A small round bike tire puncture repair patch would work a treat too if you happen to have a kit around.
