NRS HydroSkin® is the ultimate immersible base layer. Stretchy, comfortable HydroSkin 0.5 neoprene material gives you just the right amount of warmth for cool days and cool water without feeling bulky or restrictive.
  • A convenient front-entry zipper makes the HydroSkin 0.5 Jacket easy to put on or take off as conditions change.
  • 0.5 mm Terraprene™ neoprene with heat-reflecting titanium cuts the chill on cool days.
  • Four-way-stretch PowerSpan™ exterior allows unrestricted movement, and the soft ThermalPlush™ lining feels great against your skin.
  • Paddler-specific design allows unrestricted freedom of movement and puts seams where they won't cause irritation.
  • Spandex fabric under the arms creates friction-free zones for comfortable paddling while improving ventilation where you need it most.
  • HydroSkin is lightweight wetsuit apparel; it's designed for a snug form fit that restricts water entry and locks in your body's warmth.
  • A durable water repellent (DWR) exterior coating sheds water to help reduce evaporative cooling.

          In its own is fine. Unless it's maybe a little colder than the 1.5 will manage. Added weight when wet might be a challenge.

          WE wear it to play water volleyball over a swimsuit. It depends on the size you order. We love it and for kayaking again I wear it over a swimsuit in the summer up north. For swimming in cold water it helps a lot. NANCY

          I usually wear an nrs short sleeve T under it. But i don't think you would need to.
          A long sleeve T would be a hassle with these sleeves being pretty tight. The T sleeves would bunch up like crazy.

          David, it can certainly be worn without a base layer under it. The soft ThermalPlush lining and flatlock-stitched seams are bare skin friendly.

          It can be worn by itself. I have not experienced any rash. But, if the fit is a off a little, I suppose it could cause a rash.

        Does this jacket provide fotation?

        • Staff Reviewer

          A:

          The neoprene in the jacket is a closed cell foam that floats. The neoprene is 0.5 mm thick. So, the amount of additional flotation will be helpful, if fairly small. You'll certainly always want to wear a good life jacket with your HydroSkin Jacket when on the water.

        Any recommendations for cleaning post-paddle? Rinse with water only or is laundry detergent OK? Hand wash or machine OK?

          A:

          Ed, you can try just rinsing with fresh water. If there's soiling, use a mild detergent and hand wash with warm water, then air dry.

          I machine wash with minimal detergent, cold water and delicate cycle. Then air dry. I have done this for 50+ washings with very slight fading on the black color. Otherwise the jacket is as good as new. Hope this is helpful.

          Best to hose it off right after but I use our front load washer, cold water, and the synthetics cycle with 10% amount of detergent. lay out to dry if necessary but the spin does a good job. I treat my farmer john wet suit from white water kayaking the same way for past 8 yrs and no deterioration of material so seems to work

          I am sorry but I can't answer that. I ordered an XL for my husband which is what he wears but I returned it for an XXL. I will say the sleeve lengths were ok. He just needed a larger size, it was too restrictive.

          None that I've seen. I suppose it depends on each person's tolerance to
          cold weather after. NRS may have a set of guidelines for each thickness.

          Pete, multiple factors go into determining what apparel will keep you safe when you go for an unplanned swim. Either consult with our dealers in your area - http://www.nrs.com/services/dealerlocator.asp - or give us a call, 800.635.5202, to discuss what will work best for you. Read this article first to familiarize yourself with the type of questions you'll be asked - http://www.nrs.com/safety_tips/coldwatergear.asp

        • VERIFIED BUYER

          A:

          It is very difficult to try and recommend a material thickness for a wetsuit. So many factors play a roll. If you are in the water a lot, the air temp and wind velocity, and your own "cold tolerance". As an anecdote I wore the .5 mm jacket wake surfing the last 2 weeks with the air temp in the high 60's and the water temp in the mid 60's. On a sunny day with little wind it was quite adequate and I opened the zipper to vent in between runs. On a cloudy and windy day I could have used a thicker layer. During immersions, jumping in to start and falling, it was fine but the wind and lack of infrared on the cloudy day...
          I bought this jacket to avoid the "strangulation" feel of a neck collar understanding that more water would flow through the top. Using a PFD decreased the volume of the body of the jacket and I really didn't feel like a lot of water came in through the top at the zipper when I jumped or fell in.
          Hope this helps,
          Dr,. G.
