Palm sidewinder dry trousers very nice kit but not cheap 179
Try here kayaksandpaddles.co.uk may be other ones also .

From experience 2 piece dry suits are not much use if you are in the water . great in a kayak but the waist is impossible to seal very well

Those Kayak trousers look good, wonder if you could attach a boot of some descripting to the trouser legs instead of the sock?

What I want Ian are some dry trousers for launching and recovering my RIB, I have a dry suit already but it's a pain to get into and out of when the conditions are good. Very time restrictive when you're gasping for a beer at journeys end

I guess a pair of old trainers or sandals over the sock is what you need .

surely a pair of fishermans chest waders is the answer

Iam going to have to get something for the winter , recovering mostly single handed is difficult without getting in just above welly height at my local slip.

Dry legs?

When I have got a boat to launch I use neoprene chest waders all the time As Ian says they make life a lot easier, especially, when single handed IMHO.

Yes, great, but I have a question.

How do you get them off???

I find that if I haven't got the other half to pull I am stuck!!

I just take the straps off my shoulders and push them down all the way to my ankles
Mine are reasonably close fitting, but I do not have a problem getting them on or off. Without wishing to offend, have you tried a larger size?
