I have been reading up on wetsuits, how to choose them and information on wetsuit performance, but one question remains:
What is the best, most popular wetsuit for kayaking?
It appears that only one manufacturer makes a dedicated wetsuit for paddling: NRS. The flexibility of the neoprene, the open arms to preclude restriction in arm movement, and the in-front zipper - among other things - I have found out are especially preferred by paddlers.
I would like to know what you prefer, preferably based on experience with different types of wetsuits. I paddle all round the Carolinas and further south and plan to extend my touring and fishing activities well into the Fall and Spring seasons.
One other thing, I am short and stocky, so sizing presents something of a challenge: suits that would fit everywhere else may be too long in the legs.
Thanks, as always, for your advice!
