A standard pair of good fitting breathable waders can be used with a dry top cinched over it to form a seal. The dry top should seal at neck and cuffs. Also, one piece dry suits are coming down in price.

Either waist or chest high breathables combined with a dry or semi dry top. That's what most of us are using. It works really well.
Dry suits are great and as Roger pointed out prices have come way down. They're a great choice if you plan on fishing a lot in cold weather.

I'll add one more nugget...If you use stocking foot waders, at least put on a pair of sandals/tevas or wading boots of some sort. You can damage the waders hoping out on rocks/mussels.

The best tools I have found for Kayak fishing are from the commercial Lobster guys. The heavy orange Grunden bibs are great for keeping your butt dry and to land the big ones, just through them up in your lap. The heavy weight rubber protects ya.
The rubber coated orange gloves the commercial guys use are great for grabbing the bass instead of a bulky net to land them on a kayak.
Enjoy the next Nantucket sleigh ride with a big bass!

OK, when I was a kid, my dad had a pair of rubber hip waders. the kind that had the boot built in. Now, the thing is breathable waist or chest waders..... My question is what kind of material is it? If it breaths, does it leak water but keep you warm? Are the boots built in? Do you have to wear regular waterproof boots with them?

Just a rookie with a kayak

The breathables are some type of nylon with a waterproof/breathable layer in there somewhere. They're light and they work. They don't allow water to penetrate. They're available in either stockingfoot or bootfoot models. We prefer stocking foot models because the bootfoot ones tend to have large boots that don't always fit in the foot area of the kayak. Also with the stockingfoots you have a much larger variety of boots you can use and you aren't restricted to one pair. You can have different boots for different applications. The stockingfoots have neoprene booties that are attached to the waders. This provides a watertite seal from the feet to the top of the waders. Over the booties you can wear all manner of shoes/boots. That depends upon where you'll be fishing. You can use sandals but I wouldn't as they don't provide protection for the booties as you don't want to mess them up because that would ruin the waterproof aspect of the waders. We wear anything from dive booties, to kayak booties to wading shoes. For a sand environment dive or flats booties are great but if you're in an area where there's a lot of rock then a kayak boot with a stiffer sole and tread is a better way to go.
