Hi. Brand new here. Your forums were suggested by a friend of mine. I know its best for "newbys" to research the forums first, but I haven't quite seen what I'm looking for. I am trying to figure out the most versatile cold weather clothing that will serve several purposes. I have a 22' C-Dory (cabin cruiser) along with a Hobie i11 Mirage drive inflatable Kayak, and a Sea Eagle Explorer 300x inflatable Kayak. I am planning a trip to SE Alaska's Inside Passage, and also like to extend our seasons here in the Midwest. My Kayaking consists of protected waters, mostly to get back and forth to shore from our anchored boat, or to enjoy some exercise, nature and wildlife in protected bays and streams. What I'm looking for is some kind of outer wear clothing that would keep me dry and protected in case of short term immersion in cold water, but that could also be easily worn or stripped off for short hikes. So in short, I don't think a wetsuit would meet my desires, and am probably leaning more towards a dry suit. However, I've come across a combination Fabric Wader and Dry Top from NRS that I think might fit the bill. And wondering if any of you have experience with something like this or suggestions? Specifically these two items from NRS: https://www.nrs.com/product/22520.02/nrs-freefall-dry-pants https://www.nrs.com/product/23153.02/level-six-duke-drytop I'm 6' and average weight of 230 lbs. Sizing suggestions are helpful as well. Thanks for any input.
