      Nrs pants. I'm a little shorter than you 5'-2" and also about size 8 pants. Best bet is to grab a tape and take your measurements to compare to the size chart.
      These nrs pants in size small fit me perfect! Snug, not too tight not too loose. They have a very high waist profile so no worries of being a plumber on your board or in your boat. I bought two pairs and use them at the play park for SUP and boating.

      According to the sizing chart, your height and weight would put you in a Small. But this is men's sizing so might not work perfectly for you. Hopefully some women who've used the Rodeo Pants will reply with some good advice.

      A:

      I wouldn't worry about the length too much. You want to be comfortable sitting, so a medium might be the better choice. These are heavier than Hydroskin and do stretch, but have a certain amount of compression. Nice colder weather paddling pants with high waist...works great with a drytop.

      Sorry, I don't know women's sizes. I assume that size 8 is women's sizes,
      but the Rodeo pants ran a little small so you may want to move up to the
      next size, (Medium)

      It's hard to accurately measure inseam on a garment with gusseted crotch, but as near as I can tell the Small is 26" and the Medium is 27". Your safest bet will be to order both sizes and keep the one you like best. Returns are easy and free.

      These seem to run pretty much true to size from the chart. I'm 5'9 about 165lb and have a pair in Lg and normally wear a 32/33 pant with 30" inseam. They fit roomy, but comfortable and length comes to about the ankle bone. My guess is an XL for you. Nice 3 season wear with a dry top for Puget Sound kayaking.

      Chad,
      A couple of disclaimers: I'm not a scuba diver, and I only have the rodeo pants (not the jacket). My guess would be that for some warmth, these items would be helpful, but not for real cold water. Generally, I'm kayaking in them, and they are for protection in case I end in the water. I've also used them for windsurfing. Yours, Dan

      A:

      Using these Items for a dive would depend on water temp. If you are diving in Puget Sound then absolutely not. If you were diving in San Diego then they might work, depending on your cold tolerance.
      I use them for short immersion in cold water during whitewater rafting and they work well for that application. I hope this helps.

      I love the NRS Rodeo pants for kayaking, IKing and Rafting under a splash pants depending on water and weather conditions. 
      That being said, the NRS Rodeo Pants and Wetsuit Jacket will help keep you warm diving in more tropical waters, it's only 2-mm, but there are other considerations.  The pants and jacket will need some type of buoyancy compensation to help keep you down. When I was diving that was done with a weight belt, and I'm not sure if anything new has come out since then but I would not find the cordlock on these pants very comfortable under a weight belt. Also as you move diving I think the weight belt would end up on your skin between the pants and top.  If it was me diving again in salt water, I would go with the Farmer John style wetsuit, that way you keep all your gear off your skin. 
      Good luck and happy diving.

      You want any wetsuit garment to fit snugly, to minimize the amount of water that can enter in a swim. The Medium would probably work best for you. You'll also want upper body thermal protection, perhaps a wetsuit jacket. Remember, always dress for the water temperature.

      Aron,
      I'm about 137 lbs., 30" waist, but 5'7". I have the "small" size of
      these pants, and they fit well, and would be ok if I were a few inches
      taller. I think they'd be short on you.
      As far as insulating power, I don't know what conditions you'll be in,
      e.g. water and air temps, how wet you'll be, etc. For me, another
      skinny, un-insulated person, they wouldn't be enough for winter use here
      in Michigan. They basically extend the season for me. I'm kayaking also,
      and tend not to be immersed much--they are emergency protection.

      A:

      NRS Rodeo pants are made of wetsuit neoprene. Like the name implies, wetsuit fabric works by allowing a thin layer of water to enter, which is heated by the body. The warm water layer and the thick insulating neoprene work together to keep the user nice and warm. NRS Rodeo pants also provide abrasion protection, keeping the user safe from sharp rocks and coral. While exploring shore areas, they will protect the wearer from thorns and poison oak / ivy. The pants will also provide protection from stings by jellyfish or fire coral..
      NRS rodeo pants are constructed with a quality 2mm+ neoprene. The reinforced knees offer extra padding that comes in handy when making equipment repairs, or taking breaks on rocky shores.
      For temperature limits and exposure guidelines, the pants offer thermal protection similar to (the lower half of) a 3/2 mm wetsuit.

      No, they are not. That is not how wetpants work. The thin layer of water between your skin and the neoprene is how they keep you warm in cold water. If you don't want water on your skin, you need to look at a drysuit.

I use these pants for sailing and recommend them to everyone. Almost everyone in our sailing fleet has a pair. I have more than one pair. I also work in a store that sells sailing gear and recommend the Rodeo Pants to our customers and giving them the information where to purchase them. The built in knee pads are the best, no need to wear knee pads that fall off. The zippers in the calf make it easy to put on and take off, just great pants all around!

          I normally wear XXL but went with the XXXL because I thought these might be very tight to wear. I was right, the XXXL fits fine around my rear and upper legs but the lenght is about 3-4 inches too long. Wearing booties and having a zipper on the legs seems to have helped with the length issue although the padding in the knees slide down through out the day.

            These wetsuit pants are a great alternative for anyone (like me) who can't yet afford a drysuit. I kayak all winter long in Washington state, and so far these have kept me plenty warm. I've worn them down to about 34 degrees F (air temp) on snow-melt rivers and they've done just fine. I even tend to run cold, so the fact that these pants keep me warm is pretty remarkable.
            The only reason I haven't given the pants 5 stars is because they do fit a little weirdly if you're a girl. Too much fabric in the crotch (duh), calves are tight, and the waist is not built for someone with hips. They're fine once they're up over the hips, it just requires a display of dance prowess to get them up there. That said, I'm 5'3", about 125lbs, and fit a small. If you're a slim guy, these would probably fit perfectly.
            Love these pants, and I hope to have them for many years to come!
