I used the material from the arms on my convertible 3/2 with neoprene cement you use to repair rafts. I ended up buying a new wetsuit after a couple years but kept the old one to loan out and it is still holding.

Aquaseal is a decent product for repairing small tears 3" or less. If you use cheaper products they have a tendency to yellow and not last. I have used strong nylon thread and stiched and glued for maximum strength for larger repairs. However, the seal product is very durable and lasting. Can be purchased online or at most dive or good outdoor shops. Hardner is not required unless you want to use the suit inside of 2 hours.
