  • 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.

        Best Uses

          Comments about NRS Men's HydroSkin 1.5 Shirt:

          I use this 1.5 top for paddling in cold water. The top does not fit well. I'm an average build size medium person, but the top is loose in the abdomen. The collar needs to be redesigned. I understand it needs to fit tight, but it shouldn't feel like a rope around my neck. Make the sealing area wider. The arm and shoulder areas fit well.
