very small waist

Cons

  • Order A Size Larger

Best Uses

  • Kayaking

Comments about NRS Women's HydroSkin 1.5 Capris:

these do the job well of keeping you warm when kayaking in cool water .. however, the fit is a little odd about the waist .. they are cut quite narrow at the waist, so if you are curvy, you will need to order a size larger to pull them over your thighs & hips.

    Comments about NRS Women's HydroSkin 1.5 Capris:

    These capri pants are excellent and very comfortable but they are sized very small. I exchanged my medium for size XL which fit perfectly when dry but also expanded when I went into the water. I am 5'5" and 140 lbs. NRS dealt with this exchange in the most wonderful manner. It was easy,fast, and free to exchange.

      • Cool Sunny Mornings

      Comments about NRS Women's HydroSkin 1.5 Capris:

      Waist band designed for thin ladies with no hips. Prefer the band-free higher waist of prior models which are really comfortable for us pear-shaped paddlers. This is also a problem with the skirted shorts that are otherwise stylish. I needed to size up to M for this year's models and would be a problem if I needed the full length pants since I'm short.

          A:

          No, Ching, it doesn't. HydroSkin is so stretchy a gusset doesn't enhance the performance.

        Q:

        Would this product be appropriate for swimming laps? If not, do you sell other capris that would be? Thanks!

          A:

          Sarah, for swimming I think the thinner 0.5 mm HydroSkin Capris, Item # 15017.02, will be more satisfactory. One note: the higher chlorine content in pools is damaging to the insulating neoprene foam. Thoroughly rinse the pants in fresh water after every pool session, and air dry.

          A:

          Since I only use this for SUP I can't give a definitive answer. I'd guess you would also wear a neoprene top to keep your core warm. These may not give you enough freedom of movement depending on what strokes you're doing. The one time I fell wearing them, the water was warmer than the air so they worked great both in and out of the water. But I don't think they act the same as a wetsuit or tri-suit for prolonged emersion in water. Hope this helped. Not the best answer.
