Extreme SAR Kayak Drysuit
|NRS Extreme SAR Drysuit - Get the job done with the Extreme SAR drysuit from NRS. Designed specifically for the hardworking rescue professional, the breathable, waterproof, TriTon fabric of the SAR will hold up to years of abuse. Liquid neoprene coated latex gaskets at the neck and wrists are more durable than standard gaskets providing a long lasting, waterproof seal. Attached latex socks provide an extremely dry suit to help keep you more comfortable in the water. Neoprene outer cuffs with adjustable hook-and-loop closures on the neck, wrist and ankles protect the latex gaskets. Super tough Cordura exterior material reinforces the seat, elbows and knees of the SAR drysuit for rugged protection in high-wear areas. Neoprene padding in the elbows and knees provide extra protection while working in the field. With the help of the internal suspenders, you can comfortably wear the top of the suit down around your waist while away from the water. A heavy-duty YKK waterproof men's relief zipper lets you answer nature's call without having to take the whole suit off. A self-draining thigh pocket and a splash proof arm pocket keep all the essentials close at hand. Reflective material on the wrists and piping help visibility in low-light and foggy conditions. Now there is a drysuit that works as hard as you do, the NRS Extreme SAR Drysuit!
Sizing for the NRS Extreme SAR Drysuit:
I trial tested this suit for swiftwater rescue and it's performed exceptionally well. The only complaint is on the zipper - which can be difficult to close (at the start) without assistance when it's fully open. Zipper lubricant has helped and it may improve once the suit/zipper has been broken in more, but that's yet to be seen. Otherwise I would highly recommend this suit - Well made, great fit and nice features.
I've had this product for approximately 1 year and it has performed well in numerous swiftwater rescue situations (extreme cold and heat). It is very durable with extra-thick fabric in high wear areas of the seat and knees. Although I've been extremely satisfied -- the sleeve and ankle fabric cuffs are a bit cumbersome and tend not to stay velcroed when in the water. It's minor but something NRS could improve upon in future versions. Overall, it has just enough pockets for very small items but not so many to become annoying. Thanks NRS for a great suit. I give it 4.5 stars and 5 with a cuff tweak.
