  • Spandex fabric under the arms creates friction-free zones for comfortable paddling while improving ventilation where you need it most.

            I don't think this short would fit a medium-sized man. I am a medium girl, and the shoulder width and sleeve length were perfect for me. I think it would be tight for a guy. It was a great layer snorkeling in the Virgin Islands!

              Great product. So far have used it for snorkeling but will use it on river trips and other water sports for sure.

              I'm 5'11", 160 lbs and got the XL, which fits and works well. I'm usually a large. Both the torso and the sleeves are suitably long and the cut works well for active sports and swimming.

                  Q:

                  I have an older Hydroskin G3 Titanium. Can you tell me how this compares to the new Hydroskin (what thickness is it equivalent to). I would like to get one size thicker for greater warmth in colder water for early summer conditions on lake Ontario.

                    Mike, always in the past HydroSkin had 0.5 mm thick neoprene. Now we have HydroSkin 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5. Each of these identify the neoprene thickness.

                  Q:

                  I have an old Hydrosilk top. Is the Hyrdroskin 0.5 about the same in thickness and warmth as the old Hydrosilk?

                    A:

                    The Hydroskin is much warmer than the Hydrosilk. The Hydroskin material is like a very thin wetsuit and pretty much wind and waterproof, where the Hydrosilk, as you know, is just a fabric. The Hydroskin is something you would only want to wear in and around the water.

                    A:

                    I have an old and a new hydrosilk top. I also purchased a hydroskin which I
                    used a few times snorkeling on vacation last month and once at the lake in
                    my kayak practicing some playboat moves. The neoprene part (black in the
                    picture below) is thicker, warmer and waterproof. The side panels (green in
                    the picture below)are the same as hydrosilk and not waterproof. It is a
                    little more restrictive and the neoprene bunches compared to a hydrosilk top
                    but once I wore it for a few minutes I was fine with it. 5 mil is a little
                    thicker than a leather glove but flexes and stretches. Water here is cold so
                    I needed something between me and a splash and the neoprene part does the
                    job. I'd replace it if I lost it.

                    I don't know about the old ones, due to this is my first one, but I have
                    found it sufficient for SCUBA diving from low 80's sea temps and dives of
                    about one hour for about three years now, although, I find it is "too hot"
                    in 90's F on a kayak. Very happy with it and it's durability, the size for
                    me @ 5' 9" & 200 # muscular is XL and accurate, comparable to dive suits.
                    Good luck and "safe water sports"!

                    Mike, your HydroSilk top is made with a woven material. HydroSkin 0.5 is a lightweight wetsuit material. It has 0.5 mm of closed cell neoprene sandwiched between two layers of stretchy woven material. HydroSkin is definitely warmer, especially in an immersion situation.

                    A:

                    I don't think so. I am pretty sure the hydrosilk is a thin fabric like a rash guard. I have the H2Core Silk weight and I wear it for sun protection on hot days. I own the Hydroskin .5 and it is a thin wetsuit material. It would be much warmer than a hydrosilk. It is something I only wear on cold days or in cold water. Like a wetsuit, it does not breathe. I think these are two very different products.
