Jack-of-all-trades for cold water fun.
If you split your time between casting for trout and navigating Class III rapids, then you need the NRS Sidewinder Bibs. Made to handle your cold-water passions, you can wear the Sidewinders as fishing waders or combine them with a dry top when you go kayaking for complete cold-water immersion protection.
Four-layer Eclipse fabric shuts down water in its tracks while still offering comfortable breathability, and a Nanosphere DWR finish adds extra water-resistance. An additional layer of fabric at the seat and knees ensures long-lasting durability. Supple polyester microfiber allows frictionless movement with superior abrasion-resistance, and the upper is designed to fit comfortably under your PFD.
The double-pull waist creates a waterproof seal when you're wearing the Flow as a wader. Hook-and-loop cuffs protect the Eclipse fabric socks. When it's time to heed nature's call, the TIZIP MasterSeal zipper offers sweet relief without making you strip down.

NRS Sidewinder Bibs
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Purchased this because of the Relief Zipper and the NRS brand. I was hesitant on what size to get according to the Size Chart (M/L), and what Base layers I could put under it. I am 5'7' and fluctuate between 165-175lbs/medium build. I purchased the Medium according to the Size Chart. The Medium fit well, but when sitting or squatting, it got pretty tight around the crotch area. I believe that if you are hesitant to purchase due to the Size Chart and possible comfort, go with the next size up. I should have purchased the Large and may have had a bit more Material then I wanted but at least I wouldn't have any possible restrictions. All that said, the Medium Size is do able, but restrictive when wanting to climb or take long strides up a bank or leap over rocks, received it brand new with a small pin hole leak in the right foot booty (minor repair done). Would recommend this Sidewinder Bib.
