I bought this drysuit for cool to cold weather WW OC1 paddling use mostly in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. It appears to be well - constructed and rugged enough for the intended purpose. It was subjected to an unplanned, 3 minute full immersion swim test on my first trip out with it, and it did what it was designed to do. Before that happened, I was wondering what to do about expected water in the suit after an out of boat experience, the expectation based upon familiarity with earlier generation drysuit products. This suit has integral latex boots, and the only envisionable way to drain it without taking it off would be to lie on one's back and raise one's legs to allow water to run down to the wrist cuffs. It would be more entertaining to watch someone else do that than to do it oneself, but it turned out to be unnecessary. My undersuit clothing was entirely dry at the end of a 5 hour river trip. The size advice given in the advisory chart seems to be correct. I am 6'3", 195 lbs. The sleeve and leg lengths of the XL size are adequate. I am entirely happy with it, and recommend it.

I received this suit for whitewater kayaking (mostly class IV-IV+). I've been paddling for 19 years, and this is my 4th drysuit.

Overall, the material is good, but my disappointments are 2-fold:

(1) I'm within (but at the lower end) of the sizing recommended for 'medium', but the suit is definitely too large. I should have ordered a small, had I known.

(2). The zipper through to the shoulder worries me. I've had zippers prematurely split at that location before. As it is, it sticks out a bit much at the shoulder, and having one part of my lifejacket over it pinches it all the more. It hasn't been problematic yet, but I foresee issues in the future with this placement.

        I have over 3000 miles kayaking and have always used neoprene for cold weather. The close out price on this NRS Extreme Drysuit was an offer I jumped on. Shipping was quick and product arrived in a few days. I'm 5' 9" and weigh 180 lbs. i ordered a large and the first time I put it on my wife said I was turning blue from the neck gasket choking my thick neck. i used an empty 1 gallon DAP plaster repair bucket to stretch the neck gasket and hang it up. Works great without the need to trim the gasket and no more turning blue. I've only used it 2 times on short trips, but it was in icy cold water and it kept me warm, dry and comfortable. I will not be using the neoprene again. I'm looking forward to some longer trips and extending my season.

          Comments about NRS Extreme Drysuit - Closeout:

          Quality drysuit but instead of the zipper coming across the shoulder and slightly down the back it is angled so it ends up lower on the arm. Maybe to make it easier to get into and zip up. However, this along with the uneccesary zipper flap creates a lot of extra fabric across the chest and armpits. The 2015 version has the zipper across the shoulder where all the other brands place the zipper.

              I seem to be on the edge between XL and XXL. 6-1, 215lbs, 43" chest and 42" waist. I will not be going kayaking in the extreme cold, so not too many layers underneath. Thoughts anyone?

                My thoughts: I'm 6'-1" and weigh 192. I tried an Xl and had to return it, it was too big and I do wear clothes under my drysuit. I recommend the Large for you, just my thoughts. They are very good about returns, especially drysuits.

                I'm 6'2" 180. Chest 44, waist 33. I got the x-large. Way, way to big. Get the large size. I know for sure that NRS sizing is off. I heard the same story from other people. Also I have the now discontinued Mariner Dry suit in size Large. Better fit, but only with layers. Hope this helps.

                I purchased the large. I'm 190 with 43" chest and 40" waste, but only 5'10"
                I have a 16 1/2 neck and the neck gasket in the large was very tight until I stretched it.
                The large suit fits my size well with a couple layers and jacket. I wish I was taller as there is a pucker around the knees.
                You could probably fit snug into a large. I didn't look at the XL height range so can't help there.
                Good paddling.

                A:

                I’d call NRS directly and ask - I purchased the L, I am 6’2 188# , and 34”waist and 42” chest - its definitely a “roomy” on me, but after cinching down the waist belt and burping it, its good. I can move around it in very well. Unless you have a large gut, it seems to me there is plenty of room in there for a few more pounds or a bigger frame. Personally I’d rather have it fit a tad closer to me than be overly baggy. I almost downsized to the medium but the cutoff there was 6’ and I’m taller than that.

                I'd recommend an XL.

              • VERIFIED BUYER

                A:

                No, it does not have a skirt tunnel.
                In every respect, it appears to be what the reviewers say it is - well
                made, rugged, and true to size as described in the sizing chart. It has
                built in latex boots, which seem to be quite fashionable nowadays. I
                don't like those, really. Some water inevitably gets into a dry suit,
                and there is no effective way to drain it while wearing suit with these
                sealed boots. So, when they go, I will look into whether it may be
                possible to replace them with a simple ankle seal.
                I had two drysuits and 5 drytops during the last 25 years of C1 3 season
                paddling in Pennsylvania and West Virginia - March through November.
                Only one of the drytops had a skirt shroud. There never was a problem
                with water leaking past a properly fitting spray skirt, so I never
                bought another dry top or suit with an extra cost shroud. I never saw
                much real value in fancy collars around latex seals on drytops, either,
                so I never paid for that feature again after the first one that I tried.
                The predecessor dry suit to the new NRS example was a Kokatat product
                that lasted 20 years with care and probably six seal replacements. This
                NRS product appears to be of similar construction quality.

                Yes, this dry suit will keep you dry but to be warm you will have to wear warm clothes under the dry suit. So yes, it keeps you warm and dry given you are wearing warm clothes and you put on the dry suit over top of them. You will need a size Large. Medium will be too small for you.

                Hi Bruno,
                I am 5'8" and 165lbs and wear the Medium. There is definately room to spare from a height prespective so you being 5'10" shouldnt cause a problem. The medium is a good fit for me with room to move and I wear a size 40 dress shirt or suit jacket. The booties would easily fit a size 10 or 11 foot size. One thing i do want to mention is the arm length...the medium fits me perfect with the wrist gaskets right where they need to be. You being taller may find the sleeves a little short. Other than this i think the medium would work well for you. I think you would find the large very loose and baggy.
                I am very happy with my drysuit.
                Good luck.
                Jeremy

                No, Matthew, but the Extreme Relief, Item # 22523.02, is the same suit, with the relief zipper.

                That particular model does not have the relief zipper. The extreme relief has the zipper.

              Q:

              I'm 6'2", so I'd fit in an XL for hight, but for every other aspect, I'm a large. Will the large be too short for me? Would I have to sacrifice any layers to make it fit?
              Thanks

                I'm 6foot 2inches 185lbs, 33 waist and the XL is way to large. I have the Mariner in large size,  used it with three layers under neath. Fits perfect. I would get it in large size.

                I'm 5'4" and find a large quite comfortable. I'd go with an XL if I were you..

                I am 6'2" and skinny, 165 lbs. The XL is HUGE on me, I think I could wear
                a lot of warmth layers and still it would be huge on me. I think that is
                the way dry suits are supposed to fit -- very loose (?). Hope this helps.

                Roger, the drysuits we carry are designed for surface immersion. They are made with waterproof/breathable material for wearing comfort. While our suits have dive-quality zippers, suits designed for deep diving have heavier non-breathable material for those deep depths. So, short answer, we don't recommend it.

                Haven't tested it out at those depths so I'm not sure.

                definitely NOT! scuba diving dry suits are designed for pressure at depth . They are equipped with an inflator valve that attaches to your tank to relieve suit squeeze and add comfort.

              Q:

              I have an NRS Dry Suit that needs to have the neck gasket replaced. Can you do that and what is the charge? I have never used the dry suit, had it hanging on a hanger in the closet, and the neck gasket is torn in several places. It is black and yellow - not sure what model it is as I don't this this color combo in your catalog.
