/ Punctured platypus, superglue a good fix?
try the kind of patches you use for lilos
I still maintain that a compeed ontop of some seam sealer the backed up by ducktape will be best.
Good day to you sir
Doesn't apply to punctures, though!
Go with the PlatyPatch
Platypus have repair patches available in any good equipment shop. However I would recommend buying a new one. Nothing worse than a litre or more leaking into your rucksack without knowing, and then of course wanting a drink and there is none!
Don't use superglues.
They have poor moisture resistance and the bond will degrade quite quickly.

Reckon that would work for most grazes, cuts and broken limbs too.
Self adhesive patches for inner tube repairs work very well. Like these, half the price of the rip off platy ones.
I had a tiny hole in my camel back bladder. Used a standard bicycle puncture repair patch over it. The repair has lasted for some years now with no problem.
