            I used it for two winter seasons by now. After looking all over the world - its the best surfski suit i own. When it's too cold for micro fleece garments, this is the one to wear.it inables Freedom of movement for the arms, core and legs. The side stiches does'nt cause wounds on the hips while rubing the seat. No problem to seat in it for up to two hours. I love it.

              Used this during a Swiftwater Rescue Course.
              The padded knees were a great benefit
              2 mm was perfect, for summer , or temp down to 65 degrees. 3mm might be better for colder temps, but the 2mm did not feel as bulky or restrictive. Difenately save me a few bruses.

                  I've swum (swam?) a bit in my suit and it wasn't great. Large armpit and neck holes allow alot of water in when you move through the water horizontally. A full suit of at least a short sleeve version with tighter neck would be better if you'll be doing a significant amount of swimming.

                  It will be OK, no problems swimming. Although I prefer the Short John. I
                  purchased the Farmer John for the very cold days and water. The Short (
                  Little ) John I wear wool dress socks with booty's, a neoprene t-shirt
                  style ( thin or heavy depending on temperature ) then a paddle jacket ( NRS
                  Rodeo ) and gloves. I have been out in freezing temperatures with this
                  gear. I do not swim, if you do, the Farmer John is a good choice. Buy both
                  eventually.

                Q:

                I want to sail my Hobie during the shoulder seasons in northern MI, with water temp of 60 degrees and air temp down to 55 degrees. I have to stand in crotch deep water to rig/launch my boat and my wet legs & feet get cold once on the boat, in the wind, and make me chill.
                1) will a wetsuit keep my legs & feet warm once up on the boat in the wind?
                2) given my temp parameters, should I get a 2 or 3 mm wetsuit?
                3) should I add boots to keep my feet warm?

                  A:

                  I would suggest that a wet suit isn't the best choice for your needs. Wet
                  suits are at their warmest when fully dry or fully immersed in water. With
                  the suit half wet and half dry on a cool day, I don't think it will provide
                  the warmth you would like. Although more expensive, I would suggest that a
                  dry suit would be a better choice. Boots with a good traction grip would be
                  recommended with either the wet or dry suit.

                  A:

                  Jim. the neoprene used in wetsuits is a good insulator. To work well the suit must fit snugly to minimize water that enters. Once you get in the boat, the water that clings to the outside of the suit will evaporate in the wind, producing a chilling effect. You can minimize this by donning waterproof-breathable pants and top. We refer to this as "splash wear" but you may have other outdoor apparel like this. I'd recommend a 3 mm suit, and yes, neoprene wetshoes will help keep your feet warm. Check with our dealers in your area - http://www.nrs.com/services/dealerlocator.asp - for gear that meets your conditions, or give us a call, 800.635.5202.

                  Yes a wetsuit will keep you warm once on the boat. Probably the main reason
                  you get getting cold is from wind. Wetsuits are very good at blocking wind.
                  I would recommend the 3mm.
                  Also you might consider the NRS dry pants or drysuit.

                While the specs for size "L" see closest to my build, I'm concerned that my longer torso will end up pulling the crotch of the wetsuit up too tightly making me twigs and berries a bit distressed. Sizing advice?

                  5'8"", 175 pounds, 34" waist,28" leg, size L, I find that the suit fits
                  fairly well although slightly snug around the middle. The wet suit legs
                  would probably fit someone with a 30 -31" leg length but the suit maybe
                  tight if the person has a proportionate trunk length.
                  It has been my personal experience that wet suit sizes run "small" for a
                  given size.

                  Dave it's hard to measure inseam on a garment with a gusseted crotch. I measured ~ 30" on both the XXL and 3XL. One customer that answered you got ~ 32" on his XXL. The suits may be a bit short on your longer legs.

                  No. This is a wetsuit. It traps a small layer of water against your skin that your body heats and helps keep you warm. This shouldn't be used in cold water. If you are going to be paddling in cold water you would want a dry suit which will be completely dry but is much more expensive. Usually between $800 and $1200 dollars.
                  I have this suit and it's great for the cooler temperature when the water is just warming up or cooling down. When wet this suit can be cold on the wind..

                  No, it isn't waterproof.  It's great as a warming layer, and I've gotten a lot of use out of it, but if you want completely waterproof, you need to look at a drysuit, not a wetsuit.
                   
                  Hope this helps.

                  Julie,
                  This answer responds to a question regarding the "waterproofness" of the
                  NRS 2.0 farmer john wetsuit. Wetsuits are generally NOT waterproof as they
                  typically depend on a small layer of water being trapped between the wearer
                  and the wetsuit. The wetsuit needs to fit tightly enough so that this
                  layer of water remains trapped (does not circulate) and gets warmed up by
                  the wearer. I use mine for "shoulder season" paddling. If you want a
                  waterproof garment I would suggest a drysuit. These keep you dry and
                  depend on a dry insulation layer between the drysuit and the wearer (like
                  fleece or other synthetic underwear).
                  I like the NRS 2.0 farmer john and used it last weekend in fact. However,
                  the water temp was lower than I expected and the wind was whistling at
                  20kts. I was OK, but not toasty. (I couple my farmer john with the NRS
                  hydroskin long sleeve top). However, it is even colder this weekend so I
                  will be using my drysuit tomorrow.
                  I hope this helps and would be happy to respond if you have follow-up
                  questions.
                  Cheers,
                  Robert

                what is the inseam on a XXL or XL wetsuit? is it the same on a 3.0? lastly, I have a 38 inch inseam, do you have recommendations for best sizing?

                  Joe, inseam on the XL and XXL is ~ 28" and is the same on the 3.0 Farmer John. Without your other measurements we can't recommend sizing, but those suits will definitely be short on you.
