    Q:

    What waist size will the XL and XXl accommodate for the NRS mens Edge Spalsh pants, and what length are each??

      A:

      Ed, check out our sizing guide on product page for waist sizing. The inseam of the XL and XXL is 32" and 33" respectively.

      A:

      I wear about a 33x34 pant size and the XL fits perfectly. It's got a super
      adjustable waistband that would accommodate a wide range I'm sure.

    Q:

    Why do they make the pants so long. I need an XXL for a comfortable wait over an insulating layer. But the length is way to long. based on the reviews even the 6' plus guys say they are long.

      A:

      One reason may be that when sitting down, esp in a raft your lower back isn't exposed nor your ankles, though the gaskets help keep the pants from riding up too.

      Hello Phil,
      I have a medium NRS hydrosilk base layer the waist fits well there is a little extra length but I pull the extra up around my knee for a better range of motion. I also have a large NRS hydroskin layer the waist fits great and I do the same with the little extra length. I try to stager the waist bands so they don't feel so restrictive laying on top of each other.

      A:

      Phil, we try to fit the maximum of body types with each size. I hope the XXL in the Edge works for you. I measured the inseam on that size and got ~ 33". Remember, this pant has both an inner and outer hook-and-loop ankle cinch. Even if the legs are a bit long, you can cinch them there at the ankle and just have a little bagginess.

  • NRS Men's Edge Splash Pants

    Q:

    Is it possible to order a size not normally available? On the size charts the pants go up to a 4xl I believe. Yet the largest orderable size is 2xl. Is it possible to custom order a 4xl and if so what would be the additional cost, if any?

    Thank you,

    Q:

    During a recent river outing, my Edge Splash Pants received an approximately 2-inch straight tear, in the front quite far from seams. Recommended repair techniques or methods for this material?

      A:

      I'd try tear-aid fabric tape. Apply it carefully with about 0.5 inch clearance around the rip. Then, put some masking tape 0.5 inches around that patch and paint inside the tape with seam seal, a thin even coat. Remove the tape and let cure according to label directions. On my coated nylon canoe bags this works like a charm. HTH

      If you're adding a lot of bulk under the pants, the XL might be more comfortable. Or, order both sizes and return one.

      Can't say with 100% certainty but I think large should work. Regardless, NRS has great customer service and I'm sure they would gladly do an exchange if your first choice didn't fit the way you want it to. Hope this helps.

      Large should fit best (they probably will be a little long- I'm 6' and they're long for me).  Great pants, though.

      I am 6'2" and weigh 250 with a 40-42 inch waist. The XXL fit me well. I chose that size based on the NRS sizing chart that is reliable. Sounds to me like a large would fit you but I recommend referring to the sizing chart. .

      A:

      I'm 6'2" and the XL are a little long on me. But I'm a 36 waist and
      they fit perfectly around the waist. So you have a dilemma! The L
      will fit your height better, but the XL will fit your waist better.
      I'd try the L... if they are too tighjt around the waist, you can
      always exchange them. NRS is great about that!

    Q:

    I fall into both L and XL for these and trying to decide which to order. I am right at 6', 180#, 35 waist/32 inseam.
    I plan to use these as normal boat/fishing/wet hiking pants and also for kayak fishing, very often with no layer under them, so I don't want them way too big. But at times I will need a thin base layer under them, so I do need room for that.
    What do you think? Would a L have room for the thin base layer? Would the XL be too big/long?....cheers, roger

      I have the XL. I am 6'2" 210. 36 waist 34 inseam. The XL is a little
      long for me and has plenty of room for a polyprop midwight layer
      underneath. I think the L would probably be better than XL for you.
      Good luck, and keep in mind NRS has an excellent return policy, so if
      you guess wrong, you're only out the time it takes to swap.

      I am also 6' even, 175 pounds, I would go with the XL. I have worn them
      with shorts or sweatpants underneath, sure they're loose fitting but length
      was good, great for sailing or kayaking. I purchased on line so cant
      compare with L size.

      I bought the XL for my husband who is ~ 6' but heavier. If he were 180# he
      says he would get the L, as the XL are a bit too long, but needed more room
      for the weight. Hope this helps.

      A:

      I have a pair. I use them about the same way that you are thinking about using them, Roger. I have put base layers on underneath them and I use them as my rain gear as well. So, I am able to throw them on right over whatever I am wearing. They work great! I love them!
      I'm about 5'10 / 190lbs. : 34 waist / 32 inseam
      I wear a large and they are perfect. BUT, I would not go any smaller!!!!! The waist is not the problem for me, nor is the length. Its the thighs. Any smaller would be uncomfortably tight for me. Especially with clothing on underneath.
      I do tend to wear clothing that is lose fitting. I do not like to feel restricted by my paddle gear.
      You may want to try the XLs. You are (obviously) taller than I. But, you also (IMHO) seem to fall better into the XL scale of their sizing chart.
      I would worry that the Large would be just a little too snug for you if you decided to wear them with a base layer or threw them on over some other clothing.
      Net/Net: I don't think the XLs will feel to big, especially if you have layers underneath. The large would probably work, as long as you didn't really wear anything underneath. Of course, that sort of restricts your use of them. According to the sizing chart, XL should not be a problem for you at your height.
      2nd Net/Net: NRS has an awesome return policy.
      If I were you, I'd probably order the XL and see how they fit. Try them commando, with a base layer and with full on clothing. If it feels too baggy, long or whatever, return them for the large.
      Good luck and I hope this helps!

          Comments about NRS Men's Edge Splash Pants:

          Purchased these pants in anticipation for use on the YAMPA and GREEN RIVER and never used. Handed them over to son for use on upper ANIMAS RIVER ~26 miles, Class 3 and 5 in Durango, Co. When he called late that night to thank me I knew that the pants met and exceeded expectations. Water temp 40 degree from snow melt. Leg closures kept the cold water out and as bowman that helps. Fabric selection on buttocks keeps you seated. Easy to get into, even when wearing layers.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Went to REI to put hands and try on product and there were no men's Edge pants. Called NRS and spoke to associate. He knew the product line, and intended uses, gave him my height, weight, waist line and he responded with recommended size. I was a little worried. When they arrived, on time and in good condition, they fitted RIGHT ON. I have never put that much trust in someone else to select and fit my outdoor gear and personal protective equipment (PPE).
