I use breathable waders (my present pair are Hodgman but I have a Costco pair in waiting). My present dry top is a Stohlquist brand, but brand is not a big deal. I have the one I do now because it was on closeout at Austin Kayak website for $119 (reg $329). Dry tops are expensive, but if you hunt around you can find a good deal. I prefer the tops with latex wrist gaskets and a neoprene neck gasket. If you are in Portland you can check out the selection at Next Adventure. They also have a used rack that often has some good deals.
