Q:I spend a lot of time dingy sailing and kayaking in 50 degree water.
I am looking for maximum protection. Is this suit a full 5 ml throughout and is it a good choice for what I want to use it for?
I also tend to think that a wet suit may be more fail proof than a dry suit.Asked on 12/24/2014 by sailor from North Carolina
A:This suit is 3 mm neoprene throughout, with stretchier material in the arms and shoulders to enhance mobility. I think it would work for what you describe, depending on how far offshore you will be boating. For even more protection, look at the Radiant 4/3, Item # 17281.01.Answered on 12/24/2014 by Clyde from NRS

- Sizing Chart Doesn't Help
Comments about NRS Rescue Wetsuit:
These wetsuits are a nice addition to any water rescue professional equipment list.
The Sizing chart by NRS does not seem to apply to these wetsuits. People that are 5'10" and weigh 170lb by the chart should be a large but when a Large suit was on and zipped up person couldn't breath or move arms more than parrallel to the ground.
