      Jesdie, this is the first year we've introduced the 1.0 and 1.5 mm HydroSkin garments. We still have the original 0.5 mm women's pants, Item # 15013.02.

    I will be paddling in 70+ degree weather but the water is 45 degrees. I am trying to prepare in case I go into the water but also not overheat while paddling. Should I go with the 1.5 or will .5 be enough?

      I took a dry top and the 1.5 pants on 50 degree water on a 70ish degree
      day. Overall, I was pretty comfortable. I got a little chilly during long
      stretches of shade but my legs were warm. On the occasion that I swam, I
      warmed right back up as soon as I got out of the water. I tend to be a
      little colder than most folks so I enjoyed the extra warmth. If you're
      typically cold I'd say go for the thicker pants.

      The 1.5 mm neoprene thickness is more appropriate for that 45 degree water. Also vital will be your upper body protection. A lot depends on how quickly you can self rescue from a swim, how far from land you're paddling, etc. Always "dress for the swim." If you get overheated you can always splash on some of that cold water.

      I took my kids seining on the Georgia coast in early April.  The weather was 70+, but the ocean was only around 65 degrees.  I did not feel hot walking on the beach in my 1.5 HydroSkin pants, but I was sure glad to have them once I walked into the surf!  My lower body was actually quite warm, but my upper body dreaded each crashing wave.

      sorry...that is a hard one.  if you are in a hardshell you will be fine as your legs wont get wet and the lighter pants will be fine.  If you are in an IK or sit on top, your legs will be wet and you might want the heavier pants. 
      Also it depends on if you are warm or cold blooded... I got my girlfriend the heavier pants as she runs cold.  I wear the .5s and am fine with the splash generally.  So i have touched both materials and they dont seem THAT much different...also are you sitting half the time or are you really paddling and generating heat...  just so many factors to consider.  then of course...shade  or evening...

      Go with the 1.5 version. I own both and prefer the 1.5 for warmth in similar situations and I still have good flexibility.

    What are the different inseam lengths?
    Asked on 3/19/2014 by W

      I am not aware of different inseam lengths. I ordered the women's large. I am a pant size 10. My inseam is 30 1/2 inches. The leg length comes down past my ankle to touch the top of my foot---lots of length.

      It's difficult to get an accurate measurement on this type of garment. These are the approximate lengths: XS - 25", S - 26", M - 27", L - 28", XL - 29".

      Ruth, the HydroSkin 1.5 material will give better protection for those colder temperatures.
