Is it really safe to wear waders when fishing from a Yak?

If for some reason you end up in the water, won't the waders fill up with water creating some sort of safety issue?

I think I'm buying a wetsuit this year for the summer.  I got so wet this year that I think I'm just going to accept the inevitable

I recently received a Kokatat T3 Angler suit and although I've only had a chance to use it once this year(in - 12 degree weather) I was really impressed with it .Definitely more comfortable then wearing my waders and wading jacket.

i just use splash pants for warm weather, a little cooler although less water proff. a full wet suit like Hoc mentioned is an idea i might look into...the bay of fundy is coooooold all year round! lol! i use kokatat footies, a precisionpak top and a floater jacket for cold weather now.

untill i looked into it further i thought those yakers using waders were crazy! i almost drown wearing them duck hunting and again salmon fishing as a teenager - the idea of wearing those old style rubber anchors around the water frankly scares me.
whoever has the most fishing gear when they die wins!

Kokats T3 Angler Suit looks to be ideal to me. Built in dry socks, relief zipper, waterproof breathable and the neoprene neck gasket is way more comfortable than the latex ones. If I didnt already own a Peak UK dry suit I would buy one. Reasonably priced too for a good dry suit.

Wet suits are priced right but they kind of suck to wear, your clamy and hot the entire time your in it and awkward to pee in as well.

Waders, to me, would definitely not be ideal because I swim like a lobster anyway.  I picked up a pair of Simms "hip waders" last year on kijiji and I gotta tell you, if you slip a pair of watershoes on over the bootie portion these puppies are ideal for when the water's a bit chilly.  You're covered up to your hips if you need to be, or you can roll them down as far as you like.  If you do end up getting wet you can either pull them off quickly or cut them off.  They're extremely light weight and totally dry.  Just my .02 anyway ...

I agree they are clammy if you aren't getting drenched constantly.  I'm thinking of them more for big wind days in the hobie, where you are sucking salt spray pretty much constantly while sailing between fishing marks.

Use a wading belt with your chest waders.
