Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price! I've used it several times in the past few months and it seems to be holding up great. It actually seems to make me look 10lbs lighter, so I'm told. It does function great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate velcro to hlep minimize water intrusion. Outstanding purchase, jacket well made and exceeds expectations. The addition of an outside pocket would be an added benefit for quick access to equipment.

Is this true to size? My son is tall, and long waisted. Will this jacket be long enough

Asked by: catbpark
Hey there catbpark, Great question. I had my co-worker try this jacket on, and the torso is definitely shorter than an average large. The arms are long enough, but it runs small, especially around the chest. Hope this helps!

The description says "waterproof" but the specifications say "water-resistant". Which is it?

Asked by: martin
Apologies for the confusion. The NRS Rio Top Paddle Jacket is waterproof. I will get that corrected on our website asap. Thank you for bring this error to our attention.

I’m looking for a splash jacket that I can easily get on & off while my shoulder is healing. So if the hips run narrow like most men’s tops, I’m not sure if I should size up.  Ordinarily, I’m definitely a men’s small, women’s medium.  

Asked by: MA81201
Hey there! This is more a boxy fit (no tapering), but has a cinch cord to pull it taut. So it doesn't necessarily narrow at the hem like a standard shirt. From everything I hear, this jacket is quite roomy, too, but I feel you on shoulder injuries. I think you should try the small. I'd hate to size you up for an injury that will healing and not be a hindrance down the road. That would leave you with a big old billowy splash jacket!

NRS Men's PFDs

SIZE Small / Medium Large / X-Large XX-Large
Chest 33 - 40" 38 - 46" 42 - 50"

CHEST: With arms down at your sides, measure around the largest part of the chest, generally across the nipples.

WAIST: Measure around natural waistline, allowing tape measure to sit comfortably.

FORM FIT: Next-to-skin fit for easy layering and efficient performance.

SEMI-FORM FIT: Fits close but not tight for comfort and layering ease.

RELAXED FIT: Full cut for freedom of motion and layering underneath.

Use a flexible cloth measuring tape for measuring. If you do not have one, use a cord or strap and transfer that to a tape measurement.

Measure in your street clothes or base layers. NRS sizes technical outerwear pieces like drysuits and dry tops to include room for layering underneath.

With wetsuits, your weight is the best "tiebreaker" when measurements cross sizes. Remember, wetsuits need to fit snugly to be efficient at excluding water and holding in warmth.

In looser fitting garments like drysuits, splash jackets, etc, look first at the height, then at the weight for a tiebreaker.

Stand up straight when measuring, with your body relaxed.
