          Comments about NRS Little John Wetsuit:

          I have used this tubing (NRS Wild River Tube) and on the longer run down the Boulder Creek, it was not warm enough for the 90 minute trip. Granted I am newbie, so I got flipped a number of times, but I don't think that a "pro" would have been warm enough either. Now I know that I need a warmer suit and long legs would have been awesome too. I would highly recommend this suit for short tubing trips, or really hot days. Glad I have it, and look forward to getting, and playing in more NRS wet clothing.

              Q:

              I will be Ocean Kayaking in Kennebunkport, mostly during the months of mid June through the end of September. Water temperatures near shore line during this period can range from 58 to 68 degrees F. What NRS wet suit would you recommend?

                Dave, I urge you to thoroughly read through this website - http://www.coldwatersafety.org/nccwsRules3.html - The temperatures you mention, especially combined with offshore ocean boating, can be deadly for the unprepared. You will need more insulation than this wetsuit can provide. Please give us a call to better discuss options, 800.635.5202. Our utmost concern is for your safety.l

                My vote would be for either a 3.0 or 2.0 Farmer John.

                I use a NRS Little John wetsuit for kayaking in the Puget Sound. Although I'm rarely in the water out of the kayak, I can say that the wet suit is of high quality and comfortable. I'm 6 ft 215 lb and XL fits well.

                Little John. It allows arm movement, you can layer up or down, splash
                jacket over, gloves and head gear, booties would be good, not necessary for
                long leg wet suit, I use wool knee length dress socks for warmth.
