  • 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.

        It runs a little bit small but that may be because these are worn tight.

        comfortable. Keeps you warm and is breathable so not a sweat box.

        A:

        Yes there is a lining behind the zipper of the jacket. I think they are
        equally warm. The most important difference to me is that the pullover can
        get really hard to get out of once you're wet or start to sweat. Which has
        been an amusing complication while on the SUP trying to remove layers.
        However I do use the pullover for a variety of activities. Open water
        swimming, SUP, and gardening in a downpour which wasn't its intended use
        but works great. They are both great.
        Hope this helps

        A:

        The jacket has a wide strip of HydroSkin behind the zipper to help block water and air infiltration. The pullover will be marginally warmer because of the intact front. The jacket is easier off and on, plus can partially unzip for ventilation. They each have pluses and minuses.

        Yes, there is a flap behind the zipper. I have a pullover and my wife has the jacket. We both like them a lot. The jacket is probably easier on/off, and maybe a bit more flexible for ventilation. Styling on the pullovers is nice and attractive, but if you like black, the jacket is sharp too. I don't think you can go far wrong.

        Yes the zipper does have an overlap of material on the backside to keep cold out. I can't imagine a pullover being much warmer but I can see that it would be more difficult to put on or take off. My jacket is plenty warm and easy to get in and out of.

        The NRS has their proprietary HydroSkin fleece liner with a substantial
        1 1/2" "lip" of neoprene behind the zipper. I would say a .05 pullover
        is no warmer than this .05 jacket. It is well make and very smart
        looking design.

      Q:

      Hello,
      I'm going river rafting and we were told to bring rain coat and pants for the rapids because we will be getting wet and cold. Would the hydroskin 1.5 work as well? Can you get completely wet and still stay warm? Same question with the pants? We are rafting the Colorado river for 7 days.
      Thank you,

        A:

        Dana, HydroSkin is a great part of a layering system. And I stress 'layering.' The recommendation of rain coat and pants is good. Combine that with say the HydroSkin 1.5 or 0.5 Jacket and 0.5 pants and you have a mix-and-match system that should keep you safe and warm. Don't neglect your head, hands and feet. If by Colorado River you mean in the Grand Canyon, the water is always cold. The time of year you're going, and the air temperatures, will also have an effect.

      I am planning a sea kayaking and snorkeling trip to Hawaii in June. Would you advise 0.5 or 1.0 jacket?
      Asked on 3/18/2014 by Katie from Boise Idaho

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        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!
