Wetsuit just gets too hot for me. I think Iíd like to find good lightweight waders and lightweight neoprene shirt

I use dry bibs and a splash jacket for kokatat. they keep me dry (for the most part) and warm. They have a discontinued section on their web site where you can get stuff for less $. I also have a 2 piece jacket where the under jacket is made of fleece and the outer jacket is a wind/rain jacket. The fleece jacket will keep me warm even if it is completely drenched and it can be warn under either the splash jacket or rain jacket.
