Replacing a drysuit zipper is not DIY, and it's a very expensive repair. Preventative care, such as like regularly cleaning and lubricating drysuit zipper teeth, will help preserve zipper health. Also, using good techniques to roll and fold the drysuit for transportation to and from the water will help prevent fatal damage.In this instructional video, NRS Repairs guru Josh Gile goes over all the tips for ensuring that the zipper will last the life of your drysuit.

      Jim, we don't have plans to do that at this time. Please check the sizing on the Extreme SAR Drysuit, Item # 22529.02, to see if the sizing there works for you.

    Q:

    Q: Is the NRS Extreme Drysuit the ONLY drysuit that comes in G-XXL ?

    Q: I meet (barely) the weight limits BUT... in the past the biggest problem I've had is arm length and binding across the shoulders - art the arm lengths above average?

    Q: Any internal suspenders?

      I am 6' 3", 280 lbs. with a 42 in measurement around my hips.
      There are no internal suspenders, but the waist can be pulled wear needed and cinched with the built in belt. The suit fits fine once on, and is roomy. It is not too hard to put on, but getting off is a little difficult for me, but I can do it.

      A:

      Ken, the Extreme Relief and Extreme SAR, Item # 22529.02, both come in the G-XXL. The arm length, measured from center of back to end of the gasket and cuff is 37". The SAR suit has suspenders but the Extreme does not. If these suits don't fit you, Kokatat can do some custom modifications on their suits; can't say for sure that would help you but we could pursue it if these suits don't work for you. Our returns/exchanges are easy and free.

      I always go bigger because if you are wearing a drysuit its gonna be cold and you will want room for lots of layers underneath.  I am 5'4" and was 155lbs when I bought mine and got the large.
      be safe out there!

      The suit is generously sized, I think you'll be fine with the Medium. I have a 42" chest, 34" waist and I've got plenty of room in the Medium.

      A:

      I found the suits to be oversized to allow for layering underneath. If you have not actually tried a medium on, you may want to do that first to see what actual waist room you have.

      No internal suspenders. The belt works for me. If you follow the a Nrs sizing chart you should be good to go. As with any dry suit, it all depends on your height and weight, plus what you wear underneath.

      A:

      Stan, the sizing chart lists height, weight, chest and waist measurement ranges. And the girth measurements are pretty conservative; the suit is sized so you can add plenty of insulating layers inside for warmth. If you have specific questions regarding your measurements, please give us a call, 800.635.5202, and we'll help you get just the right garment.

      Hey so I have this dry suit in a medium Im 5'11" 180 with 34 waste and this suit fits well with plenty of room, just have to squeeze the air out of the collar after being zipped and is pretty comfy, the zippers are stiff recommend the lube, and always make sure they close all the way, the last inch never wants to close easily on either zipper, but it's a good suit I have swam with it never had any issues aside from the zippers not closing all the way

  • NRS Extreme Relief Drysuit

    Q:

    On the web site you state the fabric as "Fabric: 70-denier 3-layer TriTon™"

    But an earlier email from you (Emily) she states "The NRS Extreme Relief Drysuit is fantastic – made with a tough material we call “Triton” that has a 210-deneir "
    Asked on 11/10/2012 by steve from Sydney

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The 70-denier is correct. We had earlier made the suit in 210-denier and hadn't changed it right away on the website. Denier is the weight in grams of 8,000 meters of thread. In testing we found that the lighter thread was plenty tough enough and made a softer, more supple suit.

            Comments about NRS Extreme Relief Drysuit:

            I use this primarily for cold weather/winter sailing here in Idaho. I will also use it for kayaking. Launching the sailboat requires wading into the water waist deep or more, a drysuit was a must have piece of kit for the late fall and winter sailing. Since purchasing last month I have used the suit 4 times. It appears durable, no leaks, breathes well and does what it is supposed to do---keep me dry.

            The sizing chart and recommendations on the NRS site are spot on. I am 6'0, 175ish and purchased the large. I layer underneath with a one piece Sweet Protection fleece suit for insulation. The relief zipper is a must have. Why bother with a drysuit without one? Makes the whole 'relief' process quick and simple. Loved the suit so much I bought one for my wife.

              I have been a whitewater kayaker for over 40 years, and a sea kayaker for the last 20+ years. My favorite trips are 100-230 mile multi-day trips in Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska. I am 6'2" and weigh 300 lbs. The Grizzly size has been excellent for me. Prior drysuits were always too tight. This is a tough drysuit! The reinforced seat and knees have been through the test and have held up well for over 4 years of hard use. The NRS warranty is amazing. I recently sent in my drysuit for some repairs, and NRS replaced the suit. I have nothing but praise for this piece of essential equipment.

                  The belt is cumbersome and the buckle doesn't stay secure. Interferes with the sprayskirt more than it should. Fortunately it's easy to remove. The zipper flap covers serve a purpose but make already difficult wetsuit zippers a little more difficult to use. All in all though this is a great suit and NRS Customer Service sets the standard in the industry if you have trouble with their products.
