    If your speaking about the neo air get the tear aid they sell at most local marine supply stores. I bought the thermarest patch kit and the neo air patch said tear aid on it.
    So for half the price I got a lifetime supply from a marine supply house.

    I have used the patch kit that came with my thermarest and it worked great.

    If I have time and I am back at home I do a sticky ripstop nylon repair tape covered with Seamgrip. Make sure the Seamgrip extends beyond the patch about 1/4" and also make sure to round all the edges on the patch. If the fabric is silicone impregnated like a lot of outdoor products these days (including sleeping pads), use Silnet instead of Seamgrip. Seamgrip does not work on silicone impregnated fabrics.

    In the field (and even sometimes at home) I use Tyvek tape. That stuff is waterproof and will stick on their forever.

    I have used Aqua Seal on a small hole. It's a urethane glue like Shoe Goo or Goop but more flexible.
