With more features than you can shake a paddle at, the NRS Ultra John Wetsuit defines "top of the line." You won't find a more comfortable, durable or warmer 3 mm sleeveless wetsuit anywhere.
  • No more cold, damp wetsuit in the morning! Our exclusive VaporLoft™ lining eliminates clamminess and feels soft and warm against your skin.
  • 4-way-stretch PowerSpan™ panels that wrap from the tops of your shoulders to your belt line and along the sides adapt to your movements for unrestricted range of motion and improve fit.
  • 3 mm Terraprene™ neoprene provides outstanding insulation in cold conditions.
  • Titanium laminate adhesive reflects heat back to your body, keeping you warmer.
  • Glued and blind stitched seams lie smooth against your skin and slow the flow of water into the suit.
  • The extra-long, double-pull YKK® front relief zipper makes it easy to "go" on the go.
  • YKK® ankle zippers make this suit easy to pull on over booties.
  • ToughTex™ pads protect your knees, and ToughTex armor on the seat adds durability.

I've been using this in the mid-late fall, winter, and early spring in Michigan for the past few years. This has met and exceeded all expectations.

- The fuzzy inside is, indeed nice and comfortable to put on even when somewhat wet (that's what it's designed to do).
- The 3.0 thickness is plenty warm, even when I go kayaking among the icebergs in the late winter/early spring.
- The double thickness on the knees gives extra durability/comfort when kneeling.
- Easy to put on, easy to take off.
- Very comfortable to paddle in!
- I typically wear another (long-sleeve) insulating top underneath it and a paddling jacket over it.
- When the water is REALLY cold, I wear either 0.5 or 1.5 NRS HydroSkin shorts underneath to add insulation to that area (important because, as a surfski paddler, I'm always sitting in a puddle of cold water).

When the water gets cold, I look forward to using this thing. I feel bad that it gets so lonely/unutilized in the summer.

      Comments about NRS 3.0 Ultra John Wetsuit:

      I spent a lot of time researching wetsuits prior to whitewater kayaking lessons on the upper Arkansas River for 4 days over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. I'm 5'9" tall, weigh 170 lbs and wear size 35/30 pants and have a 42" chest. I ordered both a medium and large, tried on the large and it fit perfectly. It was a little tight at my gut and chest at first, but it was not uncomfortable and it tends to stretch a bit when it gets wet. I can't say enough good things about this farmer john wetsuit. I wore a 0.5 mm hydroskin top beneath it and a paddling jacket over it and I was comfortable in and out of the 42-degree water. I like the arm freedom of the farmer john style when paddling. The relief zipper was much appreciated when spending a full day on the water. Others in my group with rental wetsuits were wishing they had a relief zipper. The vapor loft lining is warm, dries quickly, and makes it easy to get in and out of the wetsuit. I just rinsed the suit each night, hung it in my garage in front of a fan overnight, and it was dry and toasty warm the next morning. The other must-have feature is the ankle zippers; very quick and easy to get the wetsuit off and on. Spend the extra money for the great features of this farmer john and you won't regret it.

      Service and delivery comments:

      NRS service was excellent as usual. Their no hassle, no cost return policy is great for an order like this when you might be between sizes. I returned the medium wetsuit and received a personal phone call when they received it and refunded my credit card.

        Bought the 3XL just before a January whitewater rafting trip on the Rogue River in Oregon. Air temp was about 42 degrees. 50,000 CFS created massive waves in Mule Creek Canyon and Blossom Bar. Our raft capsized after we made it through Blossom Bar when a huge lateral wave caught us. I floated about two miles before my fellow rafters fished me out. The wetsuit kept me comfortable (I also wore a hydroskin top) and warm enough not to get chilled.

                I use this suit for paddling during cold weather months as well as diving. I also have an NRS 3mil top that I use when needed which provides 6mil coverage for the body's core and doesn't restrict my mobility. The John suit also works well with a rash guard top to provide warmth and greater flexibility. I have owned mine for two seasons and love it.

                I am not a big distance swimmer but I suspect those who were would tell you
                to look for a suit with lower profile and less drag. It's front and leg
                zippers are decent sized and swimmers might want something without those
                items sticking out. It is otherwise a terrific wetsuit because it is really
                warm and durable. I use mine to surf and paddleboard.

                Only swim in this wetsuit when the boat flips. Not sure about open water swimming. It's a very warm suit but may not give you the mobility of a racing wetsuit.

                Hi,
                I have the ultra and bought it for the interior for more warmth.  I think the interior material is the largest difference.  Overall the suit has severed me well and continues to.  Don't by one on the large size thinking it will shrink because they do not.
                Hope this helps!

                A:

                Dale, the Ultra John has more stretchy neoprene panels in the torso for increased upper mobility. Also, it is lined with our VaporLoft, a fleece-like material that doesn't absorb water and dries quickly, thus eliminating that clammy feeling you can get when putting on a wetsuit. As you can see from the reviews, both models are very popular.

                I use it from Fall to Spring, when air temp is 50 degrees or less. Local water is fed from a dam and is numbing cold year round. Great wetsuit! No arm restriction. No water migration once it is wet. With a jacket and hood, I paddle in air temps below freezing.

                A:

                What is comfortable for one person may not be for another so this is a tricky question to answer.   What I love about this wetsuit is it's adaptability to a variety of conditions.  I mainly use mine for windsurfing in California where temperatures are moderate but in high wind, chill factor is an issue.  On warmer days, I use my Ultra John with just a sunshirt underneath and for colder days I use the 1.5 mm hydroskin top which does a good job of sealing out water.  If you are using this for kayaking or rafting in cold conditions, then an additional dry top should make it very warm.  I love the fleece lining for warmth!

                A:

                2 to 3 mm are generally OK for water temps 58 and up. but much depends on
                your level of exertion what sort of top you wear (full top, short sleeve
                top, no top?) and how long you expect to be in the water or wet and in the
                wind.
                As a kayaker I wear the wet suit in the spring as a safety measure to give
                me time for at least a self rescue or to help someone else. (not prolonged
                immersion) . Earlier in the season I wear a drysuit.

                I use my wetsuit for water skiing, protection and warmth.  Use it in the summer months so warmth is not the highest priority but it does take the edge off. I do not have the jacket but that would add significant warmth to the farmer john style of open arms.
                I like the quality of this product and find it does Not shrink so do not order larger than you think you are.

                In New Hampshire this is a late Spring (May), Summer and early Fall suit
                for waters in the mid 50's and above. Ideal for waters in the 60's and
                70's. When the water is in the mid 50s or in the Fall you will get pushed
                to your limits with staying warm. I use it for surf fishing in the
                Atlantic Ocean where it is rare for water temps to rise above 65 in
                northern MA/southern NH. Since it is only 3 mm or neoprene, and has no
                sleeves, I wear a an NRS long sleeve underneath.
                I really love this suit. Easy to get in and out of, is tough, and I'd buy
                it again. 5 stars for me.

                Hi, Monty:
                I'm on my second Ultra John wetsuit. My first one didn't have the vapor loft lining. The lining makes the suit more comfortable even when wet. I use the Ultra John when I'm paddling in water as low as 50-55 degrees. I'm not sure I'd wear it for anything colder, and if there were a strong chance of immersion, I'd consider going for the full suits like NRS' Radiant wetsuits. When I'm kayaking and have to bail, I'm not in the water for long, so wearing a 3/2 full is plenty. For surfing in the same water, where I'm in the water more than I'm not, I'm usually in a 4/3 full front entry wetsuit with booties and hood, but that would be too hot and restrictive in a kayak.  Hope this helps!

              How are these wetsuits with smells and odor retention? We noticed the lining seemed fuzzy and did not want to have a wetsuit that stank every time you put it on.

                A:

                Tim, the VaporLoft lining doesn't absorb water. However, the water we swim in and our bodies have lots of microbes. Microbes + water + warmth often = odor. Thoroughly rinse the suit with fresh water after use, then turn it inside-out to air dry. If odor does occur, there are products that will kill it.

                A:

                Tim, I have owned this suit for just over a year now and I use it frequently
                (paddling & diving), I have not had any issues with odor retention. After
                use, I turn the suit inside out and hang to dry, the liner and suit normally
                dry very quickly (I do live in a relatively humid climate). It is very
                comfortable to wear for paddling (freedom of upper body movement), and when
                needed I wear just a hydroskin shirt with the suit. I like the front zip
                suits, they are very easy to enter and exit. When diving I wear an NRS long
                sleeve wetsuit jacket over the farmer john; it is 1.5 mil and provides very
                good warmth to the core of the body and the lightweight jacket still affords
                me the flexibility for my spearfishing activities. The Fire & EMS department
                that I work for in coastal North Carolina uses the NRS Rescue Wetsuit for
                water rescue activities; it is a good 3 mil suit for that purpose but is a
                little constrictive for paddling. I have been very pleased with my purchase
                of the Farmer John. I hope that this was helpful for you.

                Hey Tim, I'm 5 7" and lean so I normally don't sweat a lot in the water, however when I walk down the beach I do sweat and I had no problem with the suit smelling. I do, do regular wet suit maintenance which is a washing with a enzyme which cleans and prevents odor. I hope this helped, all the best Stephen

                A:

                Any wetsuit will smell if it is not regularly rinsed off. I have not noticed any additional “smelly factor” from the lining. In my opinion the lining does make the suit more comfortable, and easier to put on/take off.
                I usually rinse my wet suits off in the shower, and sometimes even soap them down while wearing them, and rinsing off. I let them hang dry immediately after use, if not they can easily get musty and start to smell.

                I am 5'8 170 and I have a medium which fits very well. I think a Large might be a little long, but a med. could be snug in an area or two. If you have a chance to go to a retailer or paddling shop where you can try one on, that would be good or just order a medium and a large from nrs and return the one that doesn't fit. It is the best wetsuit out there. I have a 12 year old nrs farmer john shorty and the new material and design is a huge upgrade. good luck!

                Hello, At 6'1" 190# my large suit fits really well, actually I'm just
                barely tall enough for it to fit right on my legs. I'm betting this
                company's version of a Large may be a little long on you. It does seem to
                stretch pretty well so if a lot of your 180# is from muscular arms and
                legs, the medium may fit pretty well. If that weight comes from a big chest
                and/or abdomen, the medium may be too tight...Not sure if that helps but good
                luck and paddle safe!
