Here's what other sites are saying:

The HydroSkinA(R) Farmer John gives you the freedom and comfort you can't get from 3mm neoprene. A great piece to wear alone or as a layer on those chilly days in cold water. A thermal core of 0.5-mm neoprene provides insulation. HydroSkin has the added benefit of 4-way stretch PowerSpan(TM) for added mobility and comfort. Titanium laminated adhesive aids in body heat retention. ThermalPlush(TM) inner lining for added comfort and quick drying. Double-pull men's relief zipper makes life that much easier on the water. HydroSkin is lightweight wetsuit apparel; it's designed for a snug form fit that restricts water entry and locks in your body's warmth. Padded knees and shins reinforce that high wear area and give added protection against collision.


The NRS HydroSkin Farmer John Rash Guard may have a sleeveless style and a front-zip design similar to a farmer's soil-churning get-up, but this super-stretchy suit is specifically designed for water-churners. The super-stretchy yet thin outer layer offers warmth for your core and legs while it allows your arms to be exposed and excess body heat to escape. So whether you rock the Farmer John in mild conditions as an outer suit or under your drysuit in shriveling spring runoff, you'll appreciate how such a thin layer can provide such good insulation.


NRS HydroSkin Farmer John Neoprene Wetsuit - Freedom and comfort you can't get from 2mm neoprene! The HydroSkin Farmer John is perfect for all water activities and is all you'll need to keep you comfortable and in command on the river. Paddlers will appreciate how this lightweight, comfortable material performs. This second generation of HydroSkin increases multi-directional stretch over the entire body for greater comfort and support. The improved PowerSpan outer face eliminates binding, adding to this wetsuit's superior function either as a single outer layer or as a base layer. With increased snag resistance and quicker drying, plus wetsuit-specific features such as a double-pull zipper and padded knees, the HydroSkin Farmer John becomes the most versatile piece you can own.

Everyone deserves a second skin. And there is none better suited to a wet environment than NRS HydroSkin, which is quickly becoming the hottest thing in comfortable, active-stretch paddling apparel. New technology enables the production of an ultra-thin neoprene (0.5 mm thick or one half the thickness of a dime). NRS combines with a layer of TiCoat insulation for increased warmth.
