Check out the Kokatak dry pants with attached feet. Problem with wet suits are once they are wet if you aren't in the water they are cold and uncomfortable.

Thanks for starting this thread. I've been trying to figure out what to wear in the spring when the water's cold, but the air temp isn't too bad. I was gonna pick up either a wetsuit or just the bottoms and wear a dry top. I have a pair of Frogg Toggs dry pants that work well at keeping me dry while in the yak, but I'm always looking for something better.

you can either go dry top/dry pant combo, or if you are cheap like me you can go dry top/wader combo. Although I'm looking to "spring" for the dry pants that Kevin mentioned
