    Waterproof pants. Then like the others, always a change of clothes in the car.

    I have never invested in cold weather swimming gear, I have done scuba diving in 40 deg water with a wet suit (40 below the thermocline) and the wet suit did OK for a while. In the kayak, I use rain gear to keep me dry from splashing and wear light weight layers that I can strip off if needed and bring dry clothes in case I go swimming. I always wear my life jacket and shows I can kick off if needed.

    Anyone have any recommendations on clothing to stay dry early in the open water season? Some of the dry suits I've seen are as much as a new kayak.
