    Q:

    What's the diff between the Black Rock and the Freefall besides the pockets? I am a class III year round boater. I wish I could see and touch these pants and I guess my only option is ordering them both and keeping one while returning the other.

    thanks- Steve G

      A:

      Steve, as you mention the pockets on the Freefall are the main difference. The other is a looser straight-leg fit, more like jeans, in the Freefall compared to the tapered leg on the Black Rock. Same fabric, high waistband and tough latex ankle gaskets in both. Both great pants.

    Q:

    I bought the NRS Hydroskin G3 Titanium XXL and found it was too small for my female waist which I am 245 lbs and while it fit my hits and legs, it did not fit my waist, will this pant be different in dimensions than that pant and can you assure me it will fit of do you have XXXL version of this pant?

      Phyllis, without knowing your waist size it's hard to say. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, and we'll try to help you get gear that fits. XXL is the largest size in these pants.

    Q:

    can a lubricant be used to make the gussets easier to slip on? Like maybe a small amount of Vaseline or moisturizer for skin? I don't want to ruin the gussets but they are difficult to get in and out of.

      A:

      Please, no petroleum-based products on the gaskets, they'll damage them. 303 Protectant, Item # 38751.01, or Seal Saver, Item # 33505.01 can be used.

      Answered on 7/27/2013 by Clyde from NRS
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Yes, a lubricant can help you slip the gaskets over your ankles, but you
      shouldn't use Vaseline. The gaskets are latex, so using Vaseline will
      damage them. You should use a lubricant like 303, or anything that's
      silicone based. There are a lot of products at your local hardware store
      that are silicone based. Avoid my thing made from petroleum as it will
      weaken the latex.
      You should always use 303 whenever you store your dry wear.

      A:

      No! Anything oily or greasy will damage the gaskets. The only safe lubricant to use on them is talcum powder.

    Q:

    What is the difference between dry pants and splash pants?
    Asked on 2/23/2013 by Hilo sailor from Hilo, Hi

    3 answers

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Dry pants have either latex ankle gaskets or waterproof socks, where splash pants have some sort closure, usually a hook-and-loop strap, that impedes water entry but is not waterproof. Also, the waist closure of a dry pant is snugger and more water resistant, though not really waterproof unless combined with a dry top and perhaps a sprayskirt tunnel. Hope that helps.

      Answered on 2/23/2013 by Clyde from NRS

      A:

      Dry Pants are intended to keep you dry, except for water that may get in
      through the waist band or from the ankle. Splash Pants are basically
      useless, if your goal is to stay dry.

      Answered on 2/23/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      My understanding is that dry pants have latex gaskets on the ankles for complete waterproof. Splash do not.

        I'm a female, but the fit is OK. it was a super deluxe splash pant for me as a private rafter on the New River Gorge and on the lower Gauley; it was, however, only semi dry when I had an out of boat experience on the easy part of the Russell Fork; maybe I didn't have it properly integrated with the (semi)dry top and the spray skirt?!?! Great price on the pants, but I don't think anything beats a dry suit.

          They are comfortable to wear and will keep you dry and warm during cold weather paddling. I haven't swam with them on yet, so I can't comment on that activity. They seem durable. After using them I rinsed them off in the shower and hung them up to dry.

          Comments about NRS Men's Black Rock Dry Pants - Closeout:

          I originally received a pair of dry pants as a gift. After a year the gaskets gave way and tore. I sent an email to the great folks at NRS describing my situation. They had me send in the dry pants so they could assess them. After about a week or so I got an email saying they were sending me a new pair. Since receiving these, I've used them about 10 times. I wore them with just a bathing suit underneath on the Nantahala and was very comfortable. I've also worn them with wetsuit pants underneath recently and was pleased with how warm I was. When we were building waves recently on several rivers, I had to be in the water for quite along time moving rocks around. I did notice light leakage coming from somewhere in the pants legs. When I got out of the water, I had to empty out the legs. Overall I like the pants very much and am very pleased with the high level professionalism shown my this company. I would highly recommend any of their products to anyone in my sport. I also own an NRS throwbag which I can say for sure has rescued at least four people being swept away by the fast waters of the Ocoee River.
