I carry both UV-activated quick repair patches for my boat and the UV-activated version of Aquaseal. Despite the "works even on cloudy days" reassurance, I have experienced gloomy PNW days where I couldn't get UV Aquaseal to cure (to be fair, it was the kind of weather in which Dracula could have been daywalking without fear). So I just picked up a UV flashlight from Crappy Tire (it took me longer than it should have to find it on the store rack, because if you look, the English product title doesn't mention UV, only the French one does. Good thing I'm bilingualish.) Anyhow, it's sized to fit in my existing field repair kit, and I'm thinking it will be handy for super cloudy days, patches on the insides of a kayak where sunlight doesn't reach, or damage discovered only during late afternoon/early evenings, when you need to have repairs completed before morning.
