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.

    Q:

    I'm considering purchasing this drysuit to use for canoe expeditions - just wondering if anyone could speak to how well the material might hold up to kneeling all day - would it be worth sacrificing the women's design (and closeout pricing) to get the cordura reinforced knees on the extreme?

      A:

      ?I loved my drysuit. I spent almost 28 days in it while rafting down the Colorado River. I think that the material is great, and will hold up. I stayed 100% dry in the suit I ordered! I even swam through a canal and stayed dry! :) It is a nice dry suit! I think the knees on this will hold up for you!!! Good luck!

      A:

      It may just be my suit, but I sprung a pinhole leak in the foot the second
      time I wore my suit paddleboarding. A few of the stitches at the neck
      pulled out the first time I went to put it on (which didn't affect the
      integrity of the suit, but still concerned me), so I'm assuming these may
      be reasons the suit was available for such closeout prices. I'd go with
      the reinforced knees.

      A:

      Fabric is doubled in the knee area. If you do get some wear there a thin coat of Aquaseal, Item # 35001.01, will reinforce the area. Take a look at this video - http://www.nrs.com/learn/repair-waterproof-fabric.asp

      A:

      There is a decent amount of reinforcement on this drysuit in the knee area. I suspect if you are doing a lot of kneeling for your canoe excursions it may make sense to go up to the extreme drysuit. You will probably have some additional stiffness in the extreme suit until the material softens.
      My wife and I use ours for sailing so the suits do not see a lot of abrasion in the knee area.

    Q:

    I'm 5'10" 135lbs. I'm too tall for the medium. Do you think a women's large or should I look at men's sizes?

      A:

      I am 5' 7" and 125 lbs and initially ordered this drysuit in a medium. I
      returned it because it was WAY too big for me. Too wide and too tall. I
      think the sizing on these are listed too small. The dry suit is so much
      bigger that I consider that I might fit into an XS. I have since opted for
      ordering a custom made suit to my specs. So, be careful here. These are a
      bit big.

      A:

      Height wise I suspect the medium will be too short. Women's version seems
      to be cut more loosely I the chest area.
      The large works well for me because once I "burp" the suit it becomes more
      form fitting from width and volume standpoint. Best way to burp is to
      actually wade into the water up to your chest and release the air from your
      neck gasket.
      End of day, I would rather have the length right versus the width. The suit
      is baggy on me and will be more baggy on your 135lb frame. better baggy
      than too short.
      Just my two cents.

    Q:

    Is TriTon comparable to GoreTex? Will it hold up as long? I am looking for a lighter weight drysuit, but don't want it to tear the first time I scramble back into my boat.

      A:

      Both TriTon and Gore-Tex are three-layer laminated materials. That is, they have a waterproof - breathable membrane with woven fabric laminated on both sides. TriTon is a very tough, durable and serviceable material.

    Q:

    Would you please send me a photo of the relief zipper? I want to see where the access is- as my frequent urination is something that prevents me from buying a drysuit.

    Thanks,

      I have the suit with the relief zipper in front. It is especially easy to use in conjunction with a FUD in a porta-potty equipped with a urinal.

      Erin, hold your cursor over the product page photo, or go to the "Larger Images & More Views" link and zoom in. The zipper is covered with a flap but you can see its outline. It is situated lower down to work easily with a feminine funnel.

      A:

      The key is to toss the tiny device that comes with the dry suit - and go to
      an auto supply store and buy a $2 oil funnel - it works perfectly! I wear
      a union suit under the dry suit and it has a relief zipper also - so you
      just work the funnel in and go!

      Comments about NRS Women's Inversion Kayak Drysuit:

      Having heard stories about how difficult drysuits were to get in and out of, and having tried on another brand I was fearful of being trapped without help and never finding a suit I could put on and take off by myself. The NRS video convinced me to give this suit a try so I ordered it thinking nothing ventured, nothing gained, and I could always send it back if I didn't like it. After trying it on at home, alone (gasp), I was overjoyed to find I could manage it without assistance. Other pluses: it's lightweight and comfortable to use. So take heart, if I can do it at 72, so can you! Highly recommended.

        Comments about NRS Women's Inversion Kayak Drysuit:

        The NRS Inversion Drysuit is as perfect as it gets. It is manufactured from strong, breathable materials that really hold up against the elements. Like all drysuits, entering and exiting the suit is a bit of a chore, especially getting the main zipper started in the closing (top to bottom) direction. But this drysuit is no more difficult to put on and take off than any other drysuit. The zippered sleeve pocket and relief zipper are very welcome accessories. Once you try a drysuit, especially one of this quality, it will indeed be difficult to go back to your old wetsuit. At this price, the NRS Inversion drysuit is a steal.
