Long days and extended tours require a different kind of paddling suit. The NRS Navigator delivers with a comfortable neoprene neck seal, Eclipse™ 4-layer fabric and smart details for kayak touring comfort and convenience.
This product ships directly from NRS and will leave their warehouse in 2-3 business days. Eligible for UPS ground shipping only.
As an alternative to conventional drysuits, the Navigator Paddling Suit features a GlideSkin™ neoprene volcano-style neck gasket in place of latex, which still keeps most water out but is more comfortable for long days and extended tours.
Latex wrist gaskets keep your sleeves completely dry while paddling and rolling. And stretchy polyurethane overcuffs with adjustable hook-and-loop closures protect the gaskets.
4-layer Eclipse fabric, with its proprietary waterproof-breathable barrier and Nanosphere® DWR finish locks water out while letting moisture escape.
The supple polyester microfiber shell allows friction-free paddling with superior resistance to puncture and abrasion.
Heavy-duty, flexible TIZIP® MasterSeal entry and relief zippers provide a dependable dry seal. For extra protection, hook-and-loop sealed flaps cover the zippers.
We've moved the entry zipper to the back, across the shoulders. This eliminates pressure points on the front of the suit, while improving flexibility and reducing stress on the zipper.
The back-zipper entry makes putting the suit on easy. Just step inside, put your arms through the sleeves, and then pull the neck gasket over your head. The zipper can be opened and closed without assistance.
Unzip the splashproof quarter-zip neck for extra ventilation or zip it up to cut the windchill.
The perforated face shield blocks wind and spray without restricting air flow. It's lined with soft fleece for comfort, and the offset zipper stays out of your way, whether closed or open.
The overskirt, with its 5" wide neoprene band and double-pull hook-and-loop closure, fits over your sprayskirt tunnel to complete a watertight seal.
Eclipse fabric drysocks give you waterproof-breathable comfort and slide easily into wetsocks.
Wide seam taping throughout the suit adds extra durability.
The self-draining hood has three draw-cord adjustments for a custom fit.
Two convenient splashproof, zippered sleeve pockets hold those small essentials (sunscreen, chapstick or car keys), and the large, splashproof, dual-entry zippered kangaroo pocket can stow larger items like your camera or baggie of trail mix.
Single-seam legs eliminate wear points.
An additional layer of Eclipse material on seat and legs protects these high-wear areas.
Reflective tape on the arms increases your visibility in low-light situations.
