  • Side zipper that opens from the bottom of the shirt eases put on and take off.

  • NRS Men's HydroSkin 1.5 Shirt

    Q:

    I wear 16 1/2 shirt neck size. Wetsuits sometimes squeeze my neck when I am not immersed. I plan to use HydroSkin for sea kayaking. I plan to stay dry most of the time. How stretchy is the neck? Is the HydroSkin 1.0 significantly more stretchy than 1.5? Thanks.

      A:

      Scott, the HydroSkin 1.0 is significantly stretchier than the 1.5. However, the neck sizes are pretty generous. Our returns and exchanges are easy and free, if you need it.

      A:

      I have the new .5 and the new 1.5. I use the 1.5 with a 3mm farmer John in 40 degree waters on Lake Michigan, and the .5 with 1mm shorts and/or pants on cooler windy summer conditions. Both are comfortable for long paddles, but will leave you warm and sweaty. Neck comfort, and overall fit, are better than older models that I have used. I especially like the longer body length when paddling my surfski, really keeps my lower core warm. Good Paddling

    Q:

    I am going to boundary waters in early May and the water is still very cold 40 degrees or so. Is this shirt going to be a good choice if the canoe tips over?

      A:

      Andro, that depends on what else you'll be wearing, how long you would be in the water, etc, etc. This shirt will be great in a layering system, but you'll need to consider the questions you'll find in this article - http://www.nrs.com/safety_tips/coldwatergear.asp - Read it over and give us a call, 800.635.5202; we'll help you get outfitted for your trip.
