Very comfortable paddling pants, silky-smooth, with no annoying seams.


  • Stretchy but retain their shape
  • Nice looking
  • Good in both warm and cool conditions
  • Doesn't ride up


  • The bottom (ankle) hem is a little loose on me; I would prefer it to be fitted all the way

I love my Hydroskin pants! They wick moisture from the body and dry quickly. I have worn them both in early spring (when the ocean is VERY cold) and throughout the summer, and have noticed that they adapt quite adeptly to a variety of conditions.

I also really like the wide waistband and that they ride a little higher (but not TOO high—not "mom-jeans" high) so they don't ride up when I'm sitting or climbing around on island rocks. 

I LOVE these pants and will probably even wear them as a base layer for skiing in the winter!
