All Summer long, I fish on the kayak with a t shirt, shorts, and Crocs. Put the kayak in the water, and walk in the water to get in the kayak. Now that Fall is here, the air temps and water temps are dropping. What are you wearing to stay dry when launching?

Basically I wear the same thing all year long. Shorts or slacks with zip off legs. A long sleeve shirt with a high sun block rating. If I'm camping , in camp ( off the water ) it's a T Shirt. Crocks and a Tilly Hat. When a cold front comes ( about 5 days a year ) a long sleeve flannel shirt.
There is a advantage to Florida's weather.

I try not to get wet when launching Of course sometimes you can't help it. In the Winter I wear rubber knee boots sometimes called chore boots $15 at Walmart or Close to a 100 for the fancy kind. I opt for the cheap ones and put insoles in them. I'm curious what type of kayak do you paddle in the Winter
