- NRS Women's HydroSkin 1.5 Shirt
Q:I hope to keep going out on my SUP well into December when the rivers around Annapolis, MD will dip into the 40s. Will this top combined with the 1.5 pant protect me if I fall in, or am I better off in a full wetsuit or farmer jane. Just worried that I'll be too hot in a full suit.Asked on 11/8/2014 by Amelia from United States
A:Amelia, it's all about the water temperature and how long you'll be in the water when you go for a swim. When the water is in the 40s, you'll want more thermal protection than 1.5 mm neoprene. You'll be better off with one of the Radiant suits - http://www.nrs.com/category/2618/women/wetsuits - or a drysuit - http://www.nrs.com/category/2616/women/drysuits - with appropriate layering underneath. The drysuit is really the most adaptable piece, since you can vary the layering to match the conditions.
