Good video Mark! I fished a kayak tournament in Jamaica Bay, New York years ago and was envious of how warm those guys stayed in the coldest weather and water with those full body suits. Living in south Florida at the time, I went with just a dry top and hard booted chest waders. Not the ideal outfit as if I'd ever gone in the water for any length of time I would have gotten soaked, but it has worked out great for what it was.
Just went through the whole process of looking for something that would work for the coming years and went with a pair of zippered waders. With so many folks down here hunting during the coldest months, its easier to justify the expense. My thoughts are that I already have a dry top for the coldest days, just need something that I can take a whizz from without going back to shore or putting myself at risk of having to undo everything in kayak. I can wear the waders on all but the hottest days and use different type tops... dry top in the winter, lightweight storm top in the summer to repel rain. Can change different foot gear for hunting or fishing. Thank you Santa.http://www.orvis.com/p/silver-sonic-zippered-waders/7c99
A good rule of angling philosphy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.
