NRS H2Core Apparel (2:08)

NRS H2Core apparel is the first and only layering system designed specifically for paddlers. Perfectly placed seams create friction-free zones where other clothing rubs paddlers wrong. Advanced fabrics wick moisture, dry quickly and protect you from harmful UV rays. Unlike general-purpose outdoor apparel, H2Core's features enhance, not detract from, your time on the water.

    What is the best way to clean these pants?
    Asked on 4/27/2014 by Daryl

      I wear mine (which I really like) under my paddling pants for the most part. So they just don't get that dirty. I usually just hand wash them in cold or lukewarm water immediately after using and hang to dry. Seems to work fine.

      Wash in cold water with a mild detergent and air dry.

    Would these work as a lite protective layer for diving?
    Asked on 4/9/2014 by Darren

      Yes it would work as a protective layer in warmer waters. If you are going
      to be diving in colder waters I would go with a thicker layer.

      It will definitely make a good rashguard layer under dive wear.

new paddling tights

        Comments about NRS Men's H2Core Lightweight Pants:

        New paddling tights: 'NRS Men's H2Core Lightweight Pants'. Big name for $49.95 relaxed fit 86% polyester / 14% spandex paddling tights. These weigh in at 290 g and I like the somewhat more substantial fabric better than my previous tights: Mysterioso 175 g and Lowe's 230 g. The NRS tights should wear a bit better when sitting on a rock or log for lunch. The 'relaxed fit' is just that so you will need to factor that in when choosing a size. There is a zippered back pocket so these will not be suitable for wear under a drysuit. Overall, AOK. If I needed another pair of paddling tights I would definitely order these again both on the basis of quality and price.

        • Waist:
        • Feels true to size
        • Inseam:
        • Feels true to length
