        I was in St John last week and wore the hydroskin to snorkel in the cool ocean, it made my vacation! I did not get cold and had no muscle cramps from getting chilly. I would recommend this to a friend.

              Bought this for my wife. She's new to paddling and on her second trip out she dumped her boat. She had to do a wet exit and the first thing she said was I'm OK, I'm OK and I'm not cold!

              My first thought was that she would be over dressed in late April, but 50 degree water is still cold and it did it's job.

                    I used this Jacket along with the pants for rafting on the upper Rogue, the water is about 50 degree's up there so I wanted something that would keep me warm but not be too hot, this was perfect! I love having the option of taking off either the top or the bottoms if I do get hot.

                      Q:

                      Hi there!

                      I SUP flat water in NorCal & I need warm clothing. Temps are around 45 - 50 degrees. I'm interested in the Hydroskin 1.5 jacket & wanted to know what I should wear underneath? Maybe a Silkweight long sleeve shirt? I don't want to be too snug w/layers &/or get too hot.

                      Thanks!

                        Hi -- I usually wear a longsleeve t-shirt. The nice thing about the 1.5 jacket is that you can zip it down, etc. as you start to warm up. It's super versatile. Have fun paddling!

                        I'm sorry but you're not giving us enough information to give you a good, safe answer to your question. For example, if that 45-50 degrees is water temperature you need much more protection. Please read this article - http://www.nrs.com/safety_tips/coldwatergear.asp - then give us a call to discuss your layering options, 800.635.5202. We look forward to helping you.

                        That is a nice jacket! I have one although was not going to use it for the
                        same purpose as you & I was putting it over a farmer john. But anyway, the
                        fleecy lining is really nice and cozy so I would think that your idea of a
                        light top, maybe a lightweight polypro, so that it is warm if you get wet.
                        Or if you think that might be too warm, they sell some nice short sleeve
                        polypro tops - I just bought one.
                        Good luck!

                        I wore a lightweight fleece, but silk would probably do just as well. There is limited movement if you need to put arms above your head...this is pretty thick stuff. I used it on the Grand Canyon in March of 2014, where the water is about 48-50 degrees, but only put it on before major rapids and then took it off again.

                        This jacket works perfect for me with the NRS longsleeve rashguard. I sup flat water year round in The Netherlands. If it's still too cold I use a windbreaker until I'm warm enough. Enjoy!

                        If it is 50 degrees and sunny I wear a cotton tank top or swim suit
                        underneath (the sun makes a difference). A silkweight long sleeve would
                        be a good alternative. As it gets colder I'll wear a thin merino wool
                        layer underneath.
                        At 45 degrees and lower I go to the 2ml jacket with the same under

                        I usually combine this with my Farmer Jane 3mm and a silk weight top, for kayaking in Massachusetts in May. We run some drills in the water and I'm pretty comfortable, so you should be fine. Although if there's a chance you might fall in maybe go with a slightly heaver weight top? (assuming you're wearing pants and not a wet suit that covers your chest)
                        Hope that helps!

                        Yes you can definitely wear this swimming in the ocean, but maybe you find this not very comfy.
                        It feels like a real wetsuit, so you might not be able to move your arms enough for swimming.

                        Hi, Sarah -- that's a really good question! I use the jacket and pants while Standup Paddleboarding and have not yet fallen in while wearing them. I know the jacket is water resistant but not sure how long it would be waterproof. I think for straight on swimming I'd look for a lightweight wetsuit. If you do get this and swim with it I'll be really interested in knowing about your experience. Kind regards, Kathy

                        Sara. I bought this item for winter kayaking. I can tell you I am Triathlete and I wear a Tri wetsuit for any cold open water. I would not wear this item to actually swim long distances but for other recreational water sports is good. Comfortable and light. I got the pants to. It's a great product but it depends on what you need it for.

                        Sarah, saltwater won't hurt the jacket. You'll feel some resistance from the neoprene, but if you're swimming for exercise that shouldn't be a problem.

                        The jacket is really tight so a medium would work best for wearing over a
                        sweater and shirt of any kind. Good luck!

                        I would order a medium, this jacket doesn't have much 'stretch' to
                        accommodate something like a sweater. If you're planning on getting wet (or
                        there's a possibility you might), I would actually skip the sweater and go
                        for a small. I've worn this in combination with a farmer jane wetsuit,
                        H2core long sleeve top, and a splash top over it, and been pretty
                        comfortable doing rescue drills in New England in May. Hope that helps!

                        Since these are intended to fit snuggly I would probably go for a medium in order to fit the long sleeve and sweater underneath. I wear mine with a skin tight long sleeve but no sweater and it fits great but I think a sweater might alter things.....I hope this helps and best wishes to you.

                        Hi,
                        I am between sizes (med & lg) in trim fitting garments because of my 43" hips. Normally med tops work for me. So it is hard for me to offer advice. The medium is skin tight around my hips and the lg has sufficient room top & bottom for layering. However on complete submersion the lg balloons out especially around the sweep ( jacket bottom). FYI: 38.5" bust, 30" waist, 43" hips. I would suggest staying with the small if your measurements fall at the low end of NRS sm measurements, and sizing up if your measurements are at the upper end of NRS sm measurements. Hope this helps.
                        I do like the versitility of NRS jackets and highly recommend them. I used the 1.5mm capri and 1.0mm top for snorkeling in the Galapogos. It was a lot more convenient than the shorties and full suits everyone else in my group struggled with.
                        Good luck,
                        BRizzo
