Wish the Rodeo pants were available instead

By Miss Yough

from Pittsburgh, Pa

Comments about NRS Women's HydroSkin 1.5 Pants:

These pants are just not as warm or durable as the discontinued Rodeo pants.

My old Rodeo pants finally gave out and I needed a new pair for whitewater kayaking.

I was disappointed to discover the Teraprene is not as thick and there is no extra padding at the knee. As a whitewater kayaker, that extra padding had saved my knees and shins countless times. The thicker 2mm Teraprene kept me warm on those cold dam release rivers. The Rodeo pants were designed with action sports in mind and were worth every penny of the price.

The 1.5mm Hydroskin are just not as warm or durable as what they replaced. There is nothing river specific about them. Might as well look for discount neoprene from dive and surf shops.

        This product was ordered for use in cold weather standup paddleboarding. The quality is excellent. Having worn the pants on the water in temperatures ranging low 50's, they have kept me warm and dry, although perspiration occurred underneath. Very comfortable during exertional paddle workouts. Usually wearing small sizes, I ordered a medium which fits nicely ...137 lbs, 5'6". I would recommend these pants, especially to wear in temps 50 degrees and below.

                Have never put them in the washing machine, but probably could on a delicate setting with a tiny bit of soap. I’d never put them in the dryer.

                Yes. They would work for snorkeling. 73 degree water is so warm that you hardly need a wetsuit. But you could wear the .5 pants with a “rash guard” for a top.

                I own the 1.5 pants. Your legs will be very warm snorkeling in them. I get cold very easily and had no problem kayaking in Lake Tahoe in 60 degree water or wading in the ocean off the Georgia coast in early spring. Of course, I had my hydroskin socks on too!

                Yes. These pants can be used for snorkeling. Remember to rinse the pants
                out as soon as you get out of the water. However, I was recently in Key
                West Florida. The water temp was 70 F however the air temp was 68 F and
                really windy. We opted for the 5 mm (thickest) to keep us warm. We had
                the shorts and a short sleeve top. That kept us warmer than the 0.5 mm
                suits.

                Eliza -- these pants don't have a drawstring. They are a good combination of stretchy and snug (the hydroskin). My weight can vary by +-10 pounds and the hydroskin continues to fit me. I hope this is helpful and if you purchase the pants I hope they work out for you as well as they've worked out for me.

                The 1.5 and 0.5 refer to different wetsuit thickness. 0.5 is usually fine for summer, but you’ll want 1.5 for colder times of year.

                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...

                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.

                A:

                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.

                A:

                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.

                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".

                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.

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