When shrinkage is the least of your concerns.
Some rivers are fed exclusively by melting snow and enormous chunks of ice and require year-round hypothermia protection, so suit up in the NRS Men's Endurance Pants when you get ready to paddle some glacier-fed goodness. In places like AK and coastal BC, the whitewater is always cold enough to make life at least seriously unpleasant, which is why NRS made the Endurance with a waterproof and breathable 2.5-layer HypoTex nylon shell. The dual hook-and-loop waist straps and adjustable ankle cuffs will seal out the barely-liquid water from your most cold-sensitive parts if you happen to get tossed or flipped, and the reinforced fabric in the knees and seat extend the life of the pants for seasons of icy-cold paddling.

- Q & A
Pretty Great Pants
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These pants are awesome and fit great. Have kept me warm in cold waters. Only downside, on my second use my but scraped a rock and put a hole in the outside liner. INner membrane is still good though! All in all I'd recommend these!
