Breathable is great for relaxed touring style paddling. Not breathable enough for a vigorous workout. I too soak wet from paddling hard.

One point I was trying to make is that if one is paddling hard, nothing that keeps them warm in the water will be comfortable. But, one could adjust their workout routine to emphasize low-effort training outside and keep the hard stuff for inside, and a dry suit will help in this situation if they want to be dry and reasonably warm.

If soaking wet is not an issue, I suppose a comfy wet suit or non-breathable Drysuit would work fine, the latter being probably cheaper than a good comfy wetsuit...
