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.
  • A durable water repellent (DWR) exterior coating sheds water to help reduce evaporative cooling.

    I am planning a sea kayaking and snorkeling trip to Hawaii in June. Would you advise 0.5 or 1.0 jacket?

      Dear Miss,
      My family has lived there extensively via US Navy. Consider a top for UV
      protection. A shell for high wind while sea kayaking is all is necessary.
      You'll be snorkeling in a bathtub.
      Have Fun,
      Watch out for sea urchins, coral and rogue waves

      Katie, June in Hawaii will normally have air temps in the 80s and water in the 70s. How much insulation you need depends somewhat on your cold tolerance. For snorkeling, where you'll be in the water for long periods you may find the 1.0 better, especially if you chill easily. The best plan would be to go with layers, say the 0.5 jacket along with a 0.5 shirt. Have fun!
