I agree with Brian....have never gotten cold in breathables in the Summertime and Neopreme can be hot in Summer when not in the water. However, they do give you the protection of bouyancy should you fall in and they are inexpensive. Breathables are not as cumbersome when hiking in to your favorite fishing spot but they are subject to those pesky pin hole leaks caused by the errant hook or whatever. Always carry Aquaseal for a quick patch. You can find breathables from $149 to $650 (Hodgman to Simms)...I've found my Orvis to be a good value. Go for the sock foot rather than booted as it gives you more flexibility when not in the water. You get a little sand build up at the top of the boot but maybe gaiters would eliminate this.
