We took the solid tradition of the Farmer John and added innovative features, making the Ultra John the ultimate 3mm wetsuit. Titanium insulation makes it warmer, ThermalPlush lining makes it more comfortable, and PowerSpan panels give you extra freedom of movement. All the seams are glued and blind-stitched, and the seat and knees are armored with rugged TuffTex material. Ankle zippers make slipping the suit over your booties a breeze. The Ultra John also features a YKK extra-long, double-pull front relief zipper for convenience.

Very happy with this product. I am 5'8" @ 185lbs and Carry a bit of my extra weight in my mid section if you know what I mean. With that being said I bought a large and it fit very comfortable and the length was just right. I use this for cold water paddling in conjunction with a middle fleece layer and a waterproof top layer in temps down to mid 30's and it works very efficiently. Next best thing to a dry suit.

So far so good
First time in a wet suit. Fit was exactly as advertised and the suit was warm on extremely windy day in the kayak. No rash problems as I used a rash guard as recommended by another reviewer. Make and materials appear excellent. I spent over an hour working relatively hard in this suit and remained comfortable the entire time. I'm looking forward to colder weather and won't be worried about the occassional spill while in this suit!

So I tried on a Kokatat farmer john which didn't fit very well at all. I purchased the XL version of the NRS Ultra John and I have been very happy with it. The NRS suit fit much better than the Kokatat version (I'm 6 feet tall and 195 pounds). The material and build quality are excellent. I've been out on the water a couple of times and it kept me warm and comfy and did not interfere with my paddling at all. I do agree with others that the front zipper could extend a couple inches more for easier relief access when nature calls. However, in the scheme of things, that is a very minor complaint. I would definitely recommend this wetsuit and would purchase it again given the same choices.

This cut and stitching makes for a very comfortable fit. I just spent the better part of the day getting knocked around the river, and the padded knees and reinforced seat came in handy time and time again. NRS makes a great product and I have depended on them for years - you won't go wrong with this suit.

Comfortable all day kayaking
I especially liked the lining. When worn over a rash guard I never felt clammy or sweaty in with a warm sunny day & cold water.
