Sizing for the NRS Men's HydroSkin 0.5 Pants:
I love the hydroskin line, I already own the farmer john hydroskin, but on long distance trips I find them too warm, and often would prefer a lighter top, hence buying the pants only version, this way I can wear a lighter cooler top but still keep my legs and seat warm. I have had great wear out of the farmer johns and love the warmth that it offers even on the coldest of days. Short of buying a drysuit I think this combination works well for me. After 5-6 hours paddling in cold water even with a swim or too thrown in I have still managed to finish the day without getting too cold.
The NRS Hydroskins ARE THE BEST!!! I have worn, drysuits, wetsuits, wool, fleece, etc. etc. for > 30 years and for intermediate conditions where you don't need a full drysuit or wetsuit, these pants are awesome. They provide just the right amount of warmth and coolness on days when the water is between 50 and 80 and air temp is 40 to 85. I have worn them on early summer trips on the Salt River in AZ when you have thought they would be too warm, but they were perfect. I also use them on rivers in ID, UT, CO, NM, AZ, and WY when it is raining or cool and I might be in the water. Just get them wet every now and then and they were great. I have warn them for SUP and surf sessions in Mexico and Hawaii. If you are submersed in cold water (<55 deg) you will want a warmer drysuit or wetsuit, but for mid-range conditions these are the BEST.
