      Comments about NRS Men's HydroSkin 1.5 Pants:

      The most useful review for fit is to give exact body measurements. I am 6'5", 230 lbs, waist 39", inseam 33". I chose XXL.The pants are a perfect fit. Very comfortable. rarely do I get a new piece of equipment and have nothing to criticize. I have not paddled long distances in them yet but have buddies who have and report no problems. Length: Covers the ankles, so probably a little too long for inseam of 32" and less. The material is stretchable enough to fit a 41-42" waist as advertised. I chose the 1.5 Hydroskin because I mainly paddle on the ocean. It will be warm in summer on the beach but it will never get too warm in the cockpit with the hull being immersed and cool in max 65 degree water. I tend to dress for immersion since I like to practice rescues and out of principle. I will use it in late spring, throughout summer and until mid-fall with a dry top.

              Delivery was right on time. The best thing is the return policy. I tried on and returned two wetsuits and another pair of wetsuit pants that didn't feel right. No hassle free returns as well as free shipping is really great.

                        A:

                        The HydroSkin material itself will not pass water through. The stitched seams are not sealed, so some water can seep through them. And water will enter at the waist and ankles. This is an efficient wetsuit garment, designed to fit very snug to minimize water flushing in and out, which pulls heat away from the body.

                        They are not really waterproof but they keep you warm even when they are
                        wet. They work sort of like a wetsuit, but are more comfortable and easier
                        to get on and off.

                        These are not a dry suits, but wet suit material which keeps you warm after
                        being splashed or getting wet climbing into a boat. Your body warms you up
                        and the material holds the heat. LS

                        Waterproof? No, they're not meant to be. But they will provide an extra
                        layer of insulation in a semi-dry environment. If you swim, water will
                        still find its way inside but you will be better insulated.

                        A:

                        They work great inside a kayak with a sprayskirt and are perfectly warm when wet. I use the 1.5 mm thickness in colder weather - much too warm in summer, for example. However, these aren't meant to be worn like a wet suit while swimming or surfing since they would tend to fill with water and bulge. That said, I wear the equivalent on top over my sprayskirt with different thicknesses (1.5 mm or 1.0 mm HydroSkin) depending on how warm it is, and this configuration sheds water easily. In cold winter weather I wear a dry top with 0.5 mm HydroSkin.

                      Q:

                      I have the NRS farmer jon suit and I want to paddle in winter 30 degree Smoky Mountains whitewater. I use a drytop and another wetsuit top under that. I am looking for pants to go either under or over my Jon Suit pants area incase of a swim. Should I go with the 1.5 or think about .5 or .1? Currently the Jon Suit fits snug so I wasn't sure I would be able to wear both. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

                        A:

                        Jeremy, 30 degree water temp is really drysuit territory. If you continue to go with wetsuits for protection you'll certainly want to maximize the layering. Since your wetsuit fits snug, which is good, the 1.5 HydroSkin probably won't fit under it; depending on your dimensions you might be able to pull it on over the John. The 0.5 might likely fit under the suit. Our exchanges are easy and free, so you might purchase several options to try. Also check out our Dealer Locator to see if a nearby store may have items to try on - https://www.nrs.com/services/dealerlocator.asp - And if you continue to boat in those conditions I strongly recommend you look into purchasing a drysuit.

                        Could put a 1.5 or .5 over the farmer jon or buy a pair of waterproof paddle pants over the farmer jon. I do that over my neoprene and get a bit wet but not soaked when I have had to swim in cold weather. I paddle in the Northeast.

                        Neil, neoprene thickness needed depends on water temperature, how long you're likely to remain in the water, your cold tolerance, etc. We have several dealers in southern California that carry HydroSkin. Please check in with them to see what they recommend for your type of use. They'll be good resources and happy to get your business.
