waders getting filled up in the situation where you expect the 5' person using them. Drysuits are safer because there's no way they can get filled with water unless seriously torn.

It's for me. I'm disabled and it requires me getting into the water up to my knees to get on my SOT. I don't really want to wait until the water completely warms in order to go kayaking. I kayak mostly in calm lakes.

I have an NRS Endurance splash jacket I use some times, granted the neck and wrists seals are not meant to be water proof but you can make them fairly tight. Chances are when it is cold you are wearing some type of glove with an additional wrist strap. Once this over the wrist of the splash jacket is does a reasonable job of keeping water out. Sure some water seeps in you go swimming.

Thanks for all your replies. I guess I have much more research to do.. They don't make many products for small people. :)
