NRS Women's HydroSkin Pants
Cut for a woman's body, the NRS Women's HydroSkin Pant is one of those items you'll always want in your gear bag. Worn alone or in a layering system, you've got warmth and freedom of movement. HydroSkin stretches and moves with your body. It's the most comfortable wetsuit going. High-cut waist with draw cord provides security and will prevent ride-down in the back when you're sitting. ThermalPlush inner lining increases insulation, repels moisture and dries quickly. The 0.5 mm of closed cell neoprene, with its titanium adhesive gives great body heat retention. DWR coating causes water to bead and roll off.

Great for full-figured paddling
Bought this for my wife to go with the Hydroskin jacket for cool water and cool temps (using an Ultra Farmer Jane for colder water temps instead of these pants along with a Paddle jacket over the Hydroskin jacket). She is short (5'2") so the concern was height-wise she is a Medium but everything else an XL. Even though she is slightly out of the max's listed for Waist and Hips (1" larger in both cases) according to the sizing for a Large, she fits the Large fine (really flexible material). The length is a inch or so too long but she just folds it over which works well particularly over river boots. She tells me very comfy (loves the fleecy lining).

Great Paddling Pants!
I paddle dragon boats and outrigger canoes and I needed something for some cold days of paddling. I just got these pants a few days ago and I'm in LOVE! I live in Miami and yes, we do ocassionally get cold days out on the water (at least cold for us). I headed out in 40 degree weather yesterday morning and I didn't even feel the cold. When I got splashed, the water just beaded up and rolled right off - nothing soaked in at all. I even got into waist-deep water and when I peeled the pants off later my thighs were completely dry - proof that nothing soaked in. I had a tough time deciding what size to buy. I'm 5'11" but only 130 pounds, so I was a size small according to weight but a size medium or large according to height. I went with a medium and they are a fairly good fit - maybe not as tight as they should be, but not too bad. I think the small would have been way too short. I have been recommending these to ALL my paddling people. Oh, and another important thing: any seams that the pants have are in good locations - no rubbing, chafing or causing butt blisters. The 0.5mm actually gave a nice extra padding on the rear. Buy these pants!!!
