Our thickest and warmest HydroSkin® offering, 1.5 mm HydroSkin 1.5 provides substantial warmth without restricting your movements or cramping your style.
  • A convenient front-entry zipper makes the HydroSkin 1.5 Jacket easy to put on or take off as conditions change.
  • 1.5 mm Terraprene™ neoprene with heat-reflecting titanium provides substantial warmth without sacrificing comfort or mobility.
  • VaporLoft™ fleece lining adds warmth, dries in a flash and feels great against the skin.
  • Four-way-stretch PowerSpan™ exterior stretches with your movements for unrestricted paddling.
  • Paddler-specific design puts seams where they won't cause irritation.
  • Thinner HydroSkin 0.5 panels under the arms reduce bunching for greater paddling comfort.
  • HydroSkin is lightweight wetsuit apparel; it's designed for a snug form fit that restricts water entry and locks in your body's warmth.
  • A durable water repellent (DWR) exterior coating sheds water to help reduce evaporative cooling.

  • NRS Men's HydroSkin 1.5 Jacket


    Would this jacket be suitable for swimming in an U heated swimming pool?

      Rob, suitability depends on temperature of the water, how active is your swim and your cold tolerance. The 1.0 and 1.5 HydroSkin are new. For years folks have been swimming in the 0.5 and most have found that weight provides good warmth for active swimming. If the pool is chlorinated be sure to rinse the garment thoroughly in fresh water after each session; the high chlorine content in most pools is very hard on neoprene.

      Probably not. This is not really a wet suit for swimming. Better off with
      a tri suit. Arm movement would be better

      Too many variables to answer. Unheated in Death Valley or Woebegone, MN? How’s your tolerance for cold. I bought this jacket for scuba and whitewater rafting, but haven’t used it yet. I do like the fit and feel it doesn’t have much restriction on arm movement.

    Comments about NRS Men's HydroSkin 1.5 Jacket:

    I got it for Gauley season, it performed great, and has been good for spring so far. Bought this and the matching pants instead of a whole suit and am glad I did. I can mix and match depending on the conditions of the day. I like the zipper, makes it easy to get on and off, or cool down during a longer stop. The fleece liner is comfortable and helps with the extraction at the end of the day.

    1.5 mil has been good for me but I have an extra layer of blubber to help me out.

    Hopefully it's durable, well see how the CO season treats it.

      Use this for rafting. Got caught in a two day weather system and I used it as a way to stay in the rain and not worry about being wet. Kept me quite warm and comfortable. I like the front zip much beterms than my old pullover.
