Sizing for NRS Women's Athena Dry Pants:
For these year around cold rivers in CO, these pants rock! I love the waist band and the cut is perfect for us curvy women!
I am new to kayaking, so I swim a lot. These pants were a great new addition to my gear. Very little water came in and they are great to use with a light layer underneath. I love them!
Initially felt too large; add some layers underneath and float all day, though and I don't think a smaller size would have felt as comfortable. A slender person might not like this, great for the woman with some thigh and hip padding. Love them.
Bought these dry pants for my wife for use on whitewater in an inflatable kayak. These were our first dry pants with latex gaskets and she ripped a gasket when she first tried the pants on, but NRS replaced them and the gaskets of the new pair have not ripped. We both wear them and I prefer them over a wet suit. I have swam a rapid in them in cold water and stayed sufficiently warm and dry. But when they do get water in them, it is hard to get it out. We probably should have gotten the next smaller size, but they are plenty big enough if we ever need to wear a lot of layers under them. I would go with dry pants and a dry top again rather than a full dry suit.
Great fitting dry pant, sized big enough to wear over thermal under layer. The 8 inch neoprene waist and latex ankle gasket work as advertised to keep you dry. I would definitely buy these again.
I agree that these pants are cut for "curvy" or ample women. I'm 5'2" and 112 lbs. I bought the XS, and they would probably fit well if I was 5'4" or 5'5" and 125 lbs. They are good pants, but now I am hoping to find something else that doesn't fit like clown pants.
