Default Waders

I've been kayak fishing for about 6 years now, but pretty much hang it in the garage when the weather gets below 75. My kayaks sits low, so I get a wet butt and I don't like being cold and wet. Anyhow, my older brother just got a kayak and wants to fish it year round here in Arkansas. I know it's not Minnesota, but cold and wet sucks here too. I was thinking that a set of waders would be just the ticket, but I don't know anything about them.

So I don't duck hunt or fly fish, I just want something to keep me warm and dry on my kayak. What do I need to look for and what would you recommend?

I am extremely pleased with my frog togg breathable wader pants. I use them all but summer time here in NW Florida. They are not cumbersome in my kayak.

Not smart to wear waders while traveling in a boat or other floating vessel. Too many horror stories of people drowning in waders. Very sad incident happened last month from this.

Breathable waders are supposed to be not as risky. I have not tried them out to see but that is what they say anyway.

I'd go with a wet or dry suit, instead of a sea anchor.

But for the record ive spent hours on hours in my kayak with waders on. I do conskder myself very adept in a kayak so I wasn't worried but how often do you actually tip over in your kayak?
