I had an old pair of Farmer Janes in a size M, that I found virtually impossible to get on and off and utterly confining, imobilizing and claustrophic because they had no stretch to start with and never got any better. They were a real "deal" when I bought them elsewhere. So with a 3 week long high Canadian canoe trip on a big river coming up, I sprung for the NRS Ultra Jane. They fit great in my true size S, are easy to get on and off, and I can move freely in these - yes! Three weeks of hell avoided! I talked to the staff before getting these, and got some sound advice about which of the Farmer Janes to get for my slim frame. However, being worried about all the issues I had with my old M (another brand of course), I initially ordered a M, but the NRS folks were great about sending the S, letting me compare the fit, and returning the M (unused of course). Great advice, great service, and most of all, a great product that meets my needs! Thanks all the way around. I may update my review after my 3 week trip.

Construction and materials of the garment were fine, but you have to be able to wear the thing ... I am a curvy 180-lb woman and could not fit into the XXL size of this wetsuit, even though the sizing chart matched my measurements. According to this chart, I could be forty pounds heavier and still wear it. Puh-leeze! The zipper is so short I could hardly maneuver the straps over my shoulders, and had a heck of a time getting the thing off.. Since this is the largest size offered, it went back. I "chatted" with an online rep complaining about the lack of adequately-sized gear for larger active women, and got sympathy but no other suggestions or alternatives. I then decided to try a man's Grizzly wetsuit in Large, which would supposedly fit a man weighing 230-265 pounds. Seriously??? However, it fit much better than the women's wetsuit, with the long zipper and the adjustable Velcro shoulder straps. (I plan to sew another strip of Velcro to the strap to tighten them up to fit me better.) I will recommend the Grizzly to my larger friends, but NRS needs to rethink their offerings in this category and definitely adjust their size charts to the real world.

        I am new to kayaking but wanted to have something warmer to wear once the water got cooler. I have not used this in the river yet. But I did use it in a swimming session that we had to practice self rescues in our kayaks. It was very comfortable and I felt no restrictions in my movement in or out of the kayak. I have not used the relief zipper but I do think it could come in rather handy. I bought a XL I am 5' 7" and weigh 190. It is a bit long on me but I figured it would be from the measurements that they gave. So far I am very pleased with this item.

        I am 5'5", 125 lbs, athletic build. I take a size 8 or 10 pants. Muscular butt from skiing and biking. This wetsuit, which is beautifully made and has that cozy fleece lining, fit for someone much larger than me - esp. in the butt and thighs. I ordered the medium as I fit into the large size 1.5 mm NRS pants and a medium 1.5 mm NRS jacket. However, I should have ordered the small. The other thing I was not keen on, is that the shoulders do not have snaps or velcro. Thus, it was a little tricky to get on/off, even though it fit really big on me. Sadly, it had to go back and I have to make do in the colder weather with my 1.5 mm NRS pants/jacket when I paddleboard.
        I would recommend this to any of my friends who has a large butt and thighs and is tall.

            Very soft and aside from it's tight fit (expected), quite comfortable. Dries quickly and the zipper hole for women is a great addition to a normal farmer john suit. I'm quite 'athletic' in build so the top isn't quite as tight as the bottom half but it is still fitting and works well all the same.

              Q:

              I am curious about sizing. Based on height (6')I am on the boundary between XL and XXL. Based on weight (155), I am on the M and L boundary, and based on Bust, Waist, and Hips, I am on the Sm/Md boundary. Which is the most important measurement to go by? I don't want a wedgie all day, but I also don't want it so loose that it holds a lot of water and doesn't keep me warm. My torso is probably more average sized. Most of my extra height comes from long limbs.

                A:

                Personally, I always go with the bigger measurement. So my bigger butt has more sway than my smaller top section. I think that is even more important when paddling or rowing all day. Maybe not as important if you were swimming most of the time. Great wetsuit BTW, it's so supple even if it were tight it might not be a problem.

                Hey,
                I'm about 165, 5' 8" and have a pretty athletic build. The size large has loads of length to the legs for me and as a practice, anywhere that comes short, I would recommend boots and gloves if you needed full coverage. This one also has zippers at the ankles which helps to get it on and customize fit. Don't know if that helps, but I'd bank on a large so you get the length in the limbs without too much excess material in between.

                This is a tough one. I recommend you order a L and and XL and keep the one that fits best. If this doesn't work for you, you may be a candidate for either a drysuit or custom wetsuit. Good Luck!

                There is more stretch horizontally than vertical. So it hugs your body nicely if skinny, and does not feel loose. Given what you've said about you body, I would order the large and then try it on. If you feel a uncompromising wedgie , retune it for a Xl.

                I think you would be best fitted in a large. Your tall but relatively light and slim it sounds like. XXL is def too big. Small way too small. Medium will prob be too short XL probably to big in the body. Good luck.

                I am only 5"4' and 135lbs, so not quite the ideal comparison. But I have bought several NRS wetsuits and have been happy with them. They do stretch out well after a few uses, so I would always recommend going a little small on your size choice to allow for that, a suit that is too large is uncomfortable and cold. The suit has some nice features, including the relief zipper and the inner liner helps keep you warm while out of the water. They do have nice shaping around the chest , but I have not used a men's suit to know the shaping difference. Hope this helps :)

                perfect. When I finish a 100' rappel into a river or pool, it helps me to
                float while keeping me warm while I get off of the rope. My suggestion to
                you would be to get the medium. It will be snug around the girls, but there
                is lots of stretch. You don't want your wetsuit to be loose when you hit
                the water!

                Usually weight is the best "tie breaker when your measurements cross sizes. Your height may make the Large uncomfortable in length. I would suggest the Medium for you. We have an easy and free returns system if that doesn't work well. The quickest way to resolve it is to purchase both M & L and keep the one that fits best.

                Probably consider starting with a medium. Neoprene is a semi stretch material. Based on body type a large and xl would be far to long in the torso/legs.

                The only difference is the new # 22211 model has our VaporLoft lining. It's a soft, fleece-like material that doesn't absorb water, dries quickly and feels great against the skin. Definitely an improvement in wetsuit design.
