....... any type of clothing that keeps you warm enough is fine for "in the boat" .
It's when you end up in the "cold" water that emersion clothing is important .
If you think you won't ever end up "in the cold water" because you believe that about your inflatable and you're certain you can be careful enough about where you take it and how you use it so you are always "in the boat" ... then what's it matter what you wear ??
But if you have doubts , that means you should stay out of cold water unless properly dressed for submersion , and being submerged in cold water is a scarey and dangerous thing even with proper submersion clothing .
