Rated 5 out of 5 by Beza Perfect product!
I am so glad I got the NRS Hydroskin. I went snorkeling in 18C waters and felt very comfortable. However, I disagree that this should be sized up. These suits are to fit snugly so that water will not flow easily through. My mistake was to size up based on the reviews here. Therefore, the suit would "open up" at the belly area. If I had been in colder waters, I would have felt cold. For this reason, I would say this product is true to size. I will be buying another one in my true size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CorollaQueen nice jacket but bad fit
I really wanted this to fit because it is just what I was looking for, but no luck. The sleeves were very tight (and too long even though I am average height) and I couldn't zip it up even after ordering one size up. The jacket is straight, with no flare to accomodate hips. It would probably fit someone taller and thinner without many curves.

The wet suit jacket is fantastic! Easy to get on and off. The other reviews from others were helpful with the sizing. This jacket kept me warm and able to do my workout without getting chilled anymore. Very happy.

This is an amazing jacket. I use it to paddle surf, and it is just what I wanted. A full wet suit is too much, and too much work to get on and off. This zip up jacket is easy, warm, and fits perfectly!

I am 4' 11" and 126 pounds. The fit is perfect. It keeps me warmer next to my skin and my bathing suit is on top. I wished that the wrist was more elastic so there was not an opening for the water. I use it for water aerobics. I can feel the warmth when the sun shines on me.

This jacket is too long for me. There should be more options such as petite. It is more of a man's shape than a woman's.
It does seem to work as a light wetsuit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovellbean51 Great neoprene jacket!
I am 5'7" and weigh 170, I bought the extra large, it is snug out of water, but looser when in water, I probably would have done better with the large. It is high quality and keeps in warm in water areobics classes love it

This jacket is much better than the vest I used before for swimming in the pool. It is easy to put on/take off because of full length zipper, it does not limit movement, it does not ride up, and it keeps you virtually dry. I would have only liked a more interesting color.

I live in Scottsdale and participate in water aerobics year round. Pool is solar heated but still cold in winter with wind. I received this item yesterday and wore it first time today. It's great.
I wear a straight size 10 and bought a size LG based on another person's comments. LG fits me fine. I'm 5'8", 140-ish lbs, very small wrists, larger chest, otherwise normal. I think it would be difficult for me to zip up a MED but a MED might be better as it's skin tight. This item is long (comes to belly button). Extremely well made and of high quality. It's made so you can move your arms easily overhead, etc. No "binding" or tugging anywhere for me. I'm pleased with the item and will be able to go through the winter without missing water classes now due to cold weather. I was almost sweating in the upper part of my body in today's class, but not uncomfortably so. The LG wrist area is about 1/4" loose on me so the water is able to go up the sleeves. But if you have larg(er) wrists, you'd take LG over MED. Zipper is extremely heavy quality. Hope this helps others interested in item.
