A warm paddling jacket can make your day. The Women's HydroSkin Jacket from NRS is a front zip paddling jacket designed to fit without bulk. The jacket is compact enough to stow in a stuff sack, and trim enough to use in your layering system. The ThermalPlush lining adds warmth, and the 4-way PowerSpan promotes a great range of motion.

Great for Full-figured Kayaking
Bought this for my wife to go with Hydroskin pants (for cool water and cool temps) as well as with an Ultra Farmer Jane (for cold water and cold temps). She is short (5'2") so the concern was size-wise she is a Medium but everything else an XL. Even though she is slightly out of the max's listed for Bust, Waist, and Hips (1" larger in all 3 cases) according to the sizing for a Large, she fit the Large fine in the Hydroskin Pants and Ultra Farmer Jane. However when we got the jacket, it was way tighter than the other 2 pieces. We returned the Large (awesome customer service Altrec!) and got an XL. It fit great though of course the sleeves are a tiny bit too long but she just folds it over which works well particularly over kayaking gloves (which she always uses). The exchange process was so great now any worries I might have had about buying without being able to try on has been erased.

Great wetsuit top
This is a great wetsuit top. It is a jacket only in that it zips in front. The fit is close and if you purchase your normal size it will fit over only a thin base layer. It is warm for cool to cold fall paddling (kayak or SUP) and the zipper is great to allow venting if the sun makes the air temp warmer than expected. This has been a great addition to my cold weather gear.

After ordering and returning 3 other similar products I finally found a jacket that fits perfectly. I have not tested it in the water yet, but I have complete faith it will make me happy! Being a small female it's nearly impossible to find a watersport jacket/vest that fits properly. Yes, I would DEFINITELY recommend this to a friend!!
