      This item is sincerely the best lower body clothing that I have ever bought when it comes to handling cold weather in a comfortable apparel. I was out today on the river kayaking and it was 30 degrees and I was totally comfortably warm. I throw a pair of running tights on underneath these pants and I am good to almost 20 degrees-and of course the wetness just rolls off

                    Q:

                    Any chance these would fit a woman? I am 5'7" 150 pounds and have narrow hips, small butt and athletic legs. Considering a medium and I don't really care as much about how they look as long as they fit well enough to stay up and keep me warm. The women's are not reduced in price (naturally) and it has been my experience with motorcycle gear that with the exact same style if compared side by side, the women's is always about half as heavy and warm. Thanks

                      You can certainly give them a try; our returns/exchanges are easy and free. These 1.5 mm Pants are on closeout and the Women's model has already sold out. We'll have the new models in later this month. The only thing changing is color; current stock is black, the new ones will be in a charcoal-heather color.

                      I am a male 5' 7" height 165 pounds, ordered a large and while they fit I returned for an extra large for more comfort. I would suggest one size larger than you think.

                      They should work fine.Im 5'10" and weigh 170 and the medium was way tight.I ended up buying another pair of large and they still fit snug but much better.The waist and butt seem to run on the small side.I think you'll be fine with either.Hope that helps

                      Yes, I think they may well fit you since they are really quite stretchy. I purchased a men's medium and I am female 5'9" 130# with slim hips and they fit me really quite well. I also have a women's large in the hydroskin 0.5 - they fit awesome but they are kind of hipsters and so when I am in my kayak they don't stay up so my waist area is cold. I think the men's are better since they come up higher and have a drawstring. Before purchasing the men's medium, I had used my husbands size large and found them to be a little big but still they worked for me. Hope this helps!

                      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.

                      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.

                      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.

                      A:

                      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.
