Great for a big guy like me

Finally found the one that fits great!
April 19, 2007

NRS has done all of us large people a great justice! Not everyone that is into outdoor activities is 5'10 180lbs or less. I'm 6'1 250lbs with large shoulders, large legs and some extra padding around the center. This suit fits amazingly well! I've always struggled with being comfortable either in my shorty or long john suits and now thats a thing of the past. I've got the long john and am buying the shorty after posting this. Thank you NRS!!!!

Wow, a wet suit that fits me!

I am an elderly gent who isn't very tall and has a developing mid section. But I haven't given up yet! The Grizzly was the only solution.

Perfect, perfect, perfect

What a life changer. I have never been able to find a wetsuit that works. 5'6", 195lbs, 46 chest but very short in-seam. It fit great and combined with a NRS Hydroskin Grizzle Jacket has made into not just a fair weather kayaker but gotten me completely addicted to colder weather paddling. Had this for a couple of months and been using it 3 to 4 times a week in 40 -45 degree water with air temps in the 40- 60 degree range. Unbelievable comfortable. Works perfectly for kayaking. Even took a swim this past weekend in 42 degree water and was perfectly comfortable. Normally I wear an XL or XXL (with everything too long) but the Medium fit perfectly (though the legs are just a tab bit long but what can you do when you have a 27" in-seam :o) ? Easy to put on and have worn them for as long as 4 hours at a stretch (and that was after going swimming with them before heading out!). FYI, lower part of the leg is tapered nicely that the NRS Boundary Boots work great zipped up inside the wetsuit leg.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

Excellent fitting Farmer John

NRS Grizzly Farmer John is designed for those of us in the mature bracket. Terrific fit and sized as fit guide claims.

Best fit for the
October 17, 2007

I am 6' 305lbs but built very stocky. Playing football will do that to you. I've tried on several different sets of wetsuits but none are as comfortable as these. I use this wetsuit mainly to fish the Montauk surf. They provide ample protection in the knees to climb rocks and when wet, these provide great warmth. I have gone to areas with this wetsuit where the abrasion would wreak havoc on a pair of waders. The NRS wetsuit held up fine. Thank you for a great suit.

grizzly wonderful fit

I am large barrel chested and with oversize calfs and I am amazed at how well the fit is for me.If you are a big person trust the sizing it is good and suit has a class look. Really impressed.
