  • 4-layer Eclipse fabric, with its proprietary waterproof-breathable barrier and Nanosphere® DWR finish lock water out while letting moisture escape.
  • The supple polyester microfiber shell allows frictionless paddling with superior resistance to puncture and abrasion.
  • The overskirt, with its 5" wide neoprene band and double-pull hook-and-loop closure fits over your sprayskirt tunnel to complete a watertight seal.
  • Attached drysocks are made from the same 125 denier Eclipse fabric. The seams are taped inside and out for extra durability.
  • We've included a wide heavy-duty YKK® waterproof relief zipper so you can answer nature's call without having to strip out of the suit.
  • Top quality latex wrist and neck gaskets seal water out.
  • The heavy-duty YKK waterproof entry zipper allows easy entrance and is covered with a hook-and-loop sealed flap for extra protection.
  • Volcano-style self-draining punch-through neoprene neck overcuff protects the tough latex neck gasket.
  • Stretchy polyurethane overcuffs with adjustable hook-and-loop closures on the wrists and ankles protect the latex wrist gaskets and Eclipse socks.
  • Single-seam legs eliminate wear points and improve mobility.
  • Cordura® fabric reinforces the seat while the knees are protected with an additional layer of Eclipse fabric for rugged protection in high-wear areas.

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.

  • NRS Men's Crux Drysuit - Closeout

    Q:

    Hello I've got a quick question about the men's crux drysuit. I'm in between sizes medium and large. I'm 5'8 175 pounds with a 41 chest and a 30-31 waist. I purchased a large recently and it came in today and it seems to fit well from the waist up but seems to be too long in the legs and pretty big in the waist. Just wondering if because of my shape I'll have to deal with the long length and extra room in the waist in order to have the upper body mobility. This is my first drysuit so I just want to be sure to get the right fit. After all this I guess my question should really be is it better to favor the next size up when between sizes? Thanks for your help!

      I'm 6'0, and most days 185lbs with a 42 inch chest and 34 inch waist. I bought the large and the fit is great. This is my first dry suit as well, but I am really happy with the large. Absolutely no problem with upper body mobility. Sounds like the medium may be you calling?

      I am 6’0 190 with wide shoulders and a 34 inch waist and the Large drysuit fits me pretty well. You can layer heavy and still have plenty of room to move. My buddy who is 5’10 wide shoulders, probably 32-33 waist, got the Medium and it fits him really well. He has plenty of room to layer and move around. I would recommend trying out the medium. Having all that extra room in the large traps a lot of air which will really make the suit balloon up on you.

      I am 6' and weigh about 180. I tried the XL but found it too long in the legs so went with the large. It is snug around the spray skirt cover but the length is just right. I'd guess the medium would be too tight on your torso even though the leg length would probably be more comfortable. One of the challenges of ordering stuff on line is you can't try it on in the store. Enjoy your kayaking. You made a good choice in getting a dry suit. Having a dry suit is an important way to help you stay safe in colder water.

      Hmmm, I'm about your same size & just a bit lighter. I bought the medium & it fits perfectly, under garnets & all. U certainly don't want it too small but my guess is the medium might do u better, given the length problem.

      I just purchased the Large Crux and have not used it in the water. I am 5'
      8" at 155lbs. The Large seems slightly roomy although the shoulders seem
      just right, I think the Med would be too confining for my desired
      mobility. It is very tight on the neck. NRS has a great return policy if
      you don't like the fit just send it back.

      Speedy,
      I'm also 5'9" 175 lbs with a 42 inch chest. But, also super broad
      shoulders. I'm guessing we'd be similar in size. I've worn a medium suit
      before and quite honestly don't know how I got in the suit. I had to have a
      friend help to get out without hulking out of it. So I know mobility in a
      medium suit wouldn't be the only problem. Have you burped the suit while
      wearing it? After you have it on, paddle shoes, and all zipped up hold the
      neck open with both hands with your arms flat to your chest and crouch down
      to deflate the suit. Getting rid of that Michelin Man look not only makes
      it fit better... But, will also allow you to actually get into your yak. I
      think there's a video on this in the video section on the product page. If
      this still doesn't help you may need to go to a two piece suit for Large
      top and Medium bottom. Not the same kind of protection though.

      A:

      I have this drysuit and it is my second. If you feel like the legs are too long, I wonder if you still feel that way if kneeling, crouching, or sitting? There may be some paddling positions where you would want a little extra length. As to the waist, when you put on your suit, leave the zipper an inch or two open and squeeze the air out by hugging yourself and getting into a ball. Then finish zipping. Once you throw on your life jacket, again I am thinking the extra room won't bother you. All that to say that your suit is probably better a bit big than a bit small. Good luck.

      Don't know precisely, but it is light weight, not bulky, much like a dry top. I found this suit to be very comfortable with good freedom of movement and room for a fleece union suit to be worn underneath.

        Comments about NRS Men's Crux Drysuit - Closeout:

        This is an upgrade from the extreme relief drysuit!!
        The booties"dry socks " are much better, seem like they are more durable than latex style booties, definitely more comfy, you can fit socks under and they easly slip on latex are grabby and too snug.
        I own an extreme relief suit also but realized when kayaking the water just comes over the skirt and into the boat, the crux has a little skirt that overlaps your sprayskirt to eliminate this prob..
        Both are awesome this has better booties"dry socks" rather than latex and has the overskirt for kayak. If you kayak some get this, for rafting, sailing etc the extreme is great just wish they had dry sock type booties.

          Only flat water so far. Much quieter than my semi-dry top in cold temps. Goes on easier, like skirts, in warmer temps. Prepping for Tuckerman's Inferno Pentathalon. Hoping to get in the whitewater real soon.
