When seas gets rough and rivers get big, pull out your HydroSkin Jacket for warmth and peace of mind. You never know when you will need that extra bit of insulation for comfort and safety.
  • Extra girth is built into our "Grizzly" HydroSkin Jackets because even barrel chested paddlers get cold sometimes.
  • 0.5mm Terraprene™ is thick enough to add the extra warmth you need without being bulky and uncomfortable.
  • The zippered front entry makes the HydroSkin Jacket easy to put on at a moment's notice when the weather turns nasty.
  • Lightweight Terraprene is compact and easy to stow in a drybag or stuff sack for easy access.
  • 4-way stretch PowerSpan™ outer layer allows easy, unrestricted mobility.
  • ThermalPlush lining increases insulation, repels moisture, dries quickly and feels soft against the skin.
  • Titanium laminate adhesive aids in body heat retention.
  • Spandex underarms eliminate binding, making this top superior as a single outer layer or as a base layer.
  • DWR coating makes water bead up and roll off for decreased evaporative cooling and quicker drying times between trips.

      I wear my jacket over my Farmer John, (and sometimes just the jacket & boardshorts). It works great over the "john."

      A:

      I probably wear either the jacket or the farmer john separately more often than together. I do wear them together very early in the season. Then I'm shooting for the best protection if I have an unplanned swimming event so I normally go jacket under farmer john since the hydroskin is more form fitting and it will insulate better in water the closer it is to your body. I tend to use a regular splash jacket as the outer layer. If the hydroskin is your outer most layer you would probably want to go over the farmer john since splashes can sort of get inside the farmer john under your arms and around the bib area. As things warm up I will use the farmer john and the splash jacket or the hydroskin and the splash jacket or the hydroskin by itself. I also use the NRS boundary boots then you have neoprene up to your knees too and you are approaching wet suit protection but the set is more versatile and for me more comfortable. I'm not particularly adventurous so swimming is pretty rare for me but if you are doing a lot of cold white water a real wet suit is much better protection.

      even with the plus sizing on the Grizzly line I still had to go up one size from what the chart said.

      I haven't paddled in my Grizzly jacket yet. I would suggest ordering an XL
      regular and a Grizzly. Send the one that is too big (or small) back.

      A:

      I'm not sure that I'm the best resource for sizing advice. I'm 6'2" and
      200 lbs - my chest and waist are fairly close to yours (with long legs and
      a short torso), maybe just a tad narrower. I got the 2XL which is pretty
      snug on me to wear under other wetsuits or paddle jackets and a 4XL to wear
      over other stuff. As far as where you are with tightness, I would recommend
      at least a 2XL if not a 3XL (if your shoulders are wide or thick at all) -
      don't know how the sleeve lengths will work.

    Q:

    I'm torn between this and the Grizzly 2mil jacket..

    The use sea kayaking.. but relatively light exposures.. mountain lakes.. sloughs, small bays and inlets.. figure I could layer pretty easily and this might be more comfortable.. Winter air temps to the mid 40's.. much colder I'll stay by the fire.. Any thoughts ??

    Thanks MIke

      I hate feeling confined when I paddle but I hardly notice the hydroskin so
      that is a big plus.
      2 mil probably not. the hydroskin is plenty for me alone in 50 degree air
      though not enough if water temp is that low.

      I bought this for my husband and he loves it. He uses it for white water kayaking, and for day trips on our local river. I think this jacket will be good for what you are wanting.

      Hi
      I use this jacket with a farmer john Hydroskin suit north of Boston Spring and fall. Undergarments are t-shirt and bathing suit
      I find I need to use a rain gear to break the wind, other wise it is uncomfortable. I use really light rain gear (Cabella's packable rain jacket and pants) but, with the lightweight Hydroskin suit, it is enough
      It would not be enough for winter

            Comments about NRS Men's "Grizzly" HydroSkin Jacket - Closeout:

            I am very pleased with the Grizzly GM size, as it fits me very well, other than there is a bit of excess room in the abdomen. That's not such a bad thing while sitting in an inflatable kayak and when used with the 3mm Farmer John. I'm 6 ft, 215 lbs, 45 in chest and 35 in waist. While the GM size is made for someone shorter, it isn't too short for me. I also chose this jacket because it is very easy to get on/off compared to the hydroskin shirt. As well, it is a perfect thickness for moderately cold conditions.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I must say I was very impressed with the NRS Service representative. He advised me on getting the Grizzly version of the hydroskin jacket, given my dimensions. He also tried on different sizes before provding his advice. That's customer service!! I needed to ensure the best possible fit, as I was making an overseas order, and so it is expensive to get it wrong and have to return it for a different size.

              Great fit for the more stocky build. Very comfortable and easy to to get on & off. On really cold days I'll wear it over my "Hydro" Grizzy Johns and if its windy I'll pair it with some shorts. Highly recommend this for fit, warmth and comfort!

              Very fast delivery. Great customer service when it came to questions about sizing and about Hydroskin in general.
