I have been exploring around the Ventana Wilderness a lot lately, and there are some routes or areas that involve wading up creeks and streams. Anyways, I am thinking about getting some nrs hydroskin leggings (0.5 mm neoprene) to pair with my hydroskin socks. I figure that this will make wading much more tolerable in the winter months.
Would neoprene leggings be comfortable for hiking and climbing over deadfall? I realize that they are designed more for rafting. Are they too restrictive and not flexible? Or do they fit like running tights?
