Rated 3 out of 5 by Point Titanium Paddling Jacket
Like the jacket much better than the NRS hydroskin. Fits better with more movement in the arms. Nicely snug neoprene cuffs keep water out if if runs up your paddle. It's not a windbreaker, and be ready to to put something on immediately after taking the jacket off. The inside material (the titanium) broke down in a few, small places after only a couple of wears. I returned it, but bought another hoping the breakdown was an anomaly because I really like the fit and technical qualities. The LL Bean logo is much too large and prominently placed. I feel like a walking ad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DUNA Not good for swimming or water exercise
I purchased this top to wear while exercising or swimming in winter in heated pools in No. Calif. Although the top felt very warm, but light indoors it was not warm enough outdoors. The sleeves absorbed water and filled up and it wasn't until I removed the top that I saw the sleeves did not have the titanium coating except for the cuffs. Perhaps it fares better for paddling, but it did not work for my needs. I sent it back and hope it can be replaced by a jacket I had purchased 1.5 years ago, but is no longer listed in the online catalog.
