Need help selecting Neoprene Material for O'brien overlay


I have an older O'brien Seige Comp that needs a new overlay piece.

I have reached out to Wiley's, but because the overlay has a built in velcro cinch set up they can't help me.

I've read on this forum that folks have ordered neoprene from McMaster Carr. Would anyone be able to point me to the correct part #? There a enough options on the McMaster Carr site to make it difficult to determine what to order.

Any help would be much appreciated.

    Time for a binding upgrade? Probably a better idea than repairing a sketchy old binding.

    Is this just one of those sliders with two Velcro wraps that overlap in the back with a flap?

    Yes it has the two velcro wraps in the back.

    I have contacted Wiley's and because of the velcro (they don't have ability to sew neoprene) they are not able to help.

    The main part of the binding is fine, and the overlay just has a small tear. I don't ski competitively. Just fixing the overlay is all I need at this point.

    $$ no object I'd be looking for a new ski, or to replace the 94 Prostar 190 for that matter :-)

    My dad had those bindings for years on his Obrien world team, refused to change so I've rebuilt them a number of times. But then again I can sew through the rubber material and would just lay them out on a standard wileys overlay and cut it. But then i would always use my belt sander to smooth the cuts.

    If I were you at this point I would simply buy a Wileys CBO mid wrap. It will feel similar or better and require less dorking around and they sell 100% of the parts to keep it going forever.
