Q:Would this jacket be suitable for swimming in an U heated swimming pool?Asked on 10/24/2014 by Rob from Baton Rouge, La
A: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.

A:Probably not. This is not really a wet suit for swimming. Better off with
a tri suit. Arm movement would be betterAnswered on 10/24/2014 by Anonymous
A: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:
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.
