    Q:

    My sit on top Kayak tends to accumulate water, especially where I sit. while this is OK in the summer, I'm concerned about spring and fall paddling when the temp and water is cooler. Would you recomend splash pants or a wetsuit?

      A:

      The splash pants will keep water away, unless you go for a swim, but won't provide much warmth by itself. You can add fleece, or other layers, underneath for warmth, but again, that only works as long as you don't go in the water. The wise approach is always "dress for the swim". In spring and fall when the water is colder you'll want to wear an insulating system that can get wet. Read this article -http://www.nrs.com/cold_water_layering.asp - and give us a call, 800.635.5202, to discuss options for your area and type of paddling.

      A:

      My butt continuously sits in a small pool of water in my inflatable
      kayak. In spring, early summer, and fall I wear Hydroskins when the
      water is below 65F. Any water that penetrates the Hydroskin warms
      quickly and is not uncomfortable. I only add splash pants when the
      water is so cold that I need the splash pants to keep my legs warm.
      That's usually when the air or water is below 55F. Splash pants would
      probably be too warm during summer.
      Wetsuits are seldom used nowadays for paddling. People mostly use
      Hydroskins which offer more "mix and match" flexibility. I have
      Hydroskin jacket, pants, and booties. Also a Hydroskin vest for
      in-between weather when my arms don't need to be covered. So I would
      recommend getting Hydroskin first, and adding splash pants only if you
      need more warmth for cold-weather paddling.

      A:

      It all depends on how wet you typically get during a paddle. If you get
      soaked by pounding waves or end up in the water often a wetsuit might be a
      better option. For anything short of that splash pants are fine. I prefer a
      dry top/splash pants combo because it's much more comfortable. The material
      makes them very versatile. You can layer underneath them. Anything from
      lightweight running tights to heavy duty thermal underwear. Definitely get
      a dry top/splash top to match the pants.

      A:

      I have splash pants and a 4/3 wetsuit. I don't ever use the splash pants. I
      kayak in 50 degree water and the wetsuit is sufficient for the temp. If it
      was colder I would probably just get a thicker wet suit.

    Q:

      my son is 6 feet 7 inches 240 lbs and the endurance 2xl fit really well. All but the length but feet get wet no matter what! I say try the 2xl.. Also I am a big woman and have a rather large girth. and the xl womens fit with room to spare.

      A:

      Will, the sizing chart is our Men's Sizing chart, used in all our men's garments. Not all of our pieces come in that full range of sizes. The measurements you list fall in the XXL size; I think that should fit you just fine.

    Q:

    Are the seams taped or welded?
    Asked on 4/17/2013 by will from PA

    3 answers

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Not sure what you mean by welded but it appears to me that the seam is sewn
      and it appears to have a plasticky cover over the seam which is fused by
      heat.

      Answered on 4/17/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Seams on the endurance pants are stitched. and kinda welded. The pants brand new are great, and a good investment. If you hike through brush or pricker bushes, the pants may puncture. I had the crotch seam split apart after 60 days or so of use (this happened on day 2 of a Grand Canyon trip). If you velcrow the ankles and waist bad tight, you will stay dry during a quick dunk, or even wading in the water. I love these pants, they key you very comfortable when getting splashed.

      The pants have a gusseted crotch, so it's a bit harder to measure inseam, but it's approximately 32".

      A:

      Never used mine in salt water but did hand-wash and drip-dry them. Great
      pants, but I think "water-resistance" would be more applicable.

      A:

      It's best to hand wash technical outerwear, to avoid damaging the waterproof-breathable membrane. If simply rinsing in warm water doesn't remove the salt, we recommend using a cleaner specially formulated for these fabrics - like ReviveX Fabric Cleaner or Nikwax Tech Wash.

    Received my shippment just in time to wear them daily on our recent Grand Canyon self support trip. Great fit, durable, ankles seal up well for a splash pant, light weight but effective. Wore them with a base layer of hydroskin and stayed warm and dry. The extra deep fabric in the crotch area gives you a lot of mobility without worrying about tearing the seams.

    Got these for a 19 day Grand Canyon trip. Wish I had dry bibs instead. If you don't mind getting damp/ slightly wet these are fine. Light weight, comfortable, held up fine for the trip. If you already own gore-tex rain pants you don't need these.
