Offshore racers and cruisers take note—Henri Lloyd has designed these protective outer layer jackets to be lighter, more breathable and tougher than their best-in-class predecessors!
Elite Offshore Jackets incorporate 100% waterproof, 100% windproof GORE-TEX® fabric technology that makes them 30% lighter and 20% more breathable. Gore™ Micro-Grid technology not only makes them tougher and more abrasion-resistant, but they also glide easily over midlayers to reduce interlayer grab, which makes them easier to put on and take off -- and reduces fatigue when worn all day.
These are also the only Offshore garments that are classified as Extremely Breathable, a significant change you have to feel to believe. Unlined with fully taped seams, you’ll find their ergonomic design is articulated in all the right places for uncompromising performance in active, demanding conditions. The exclusive Optivision Hood features transparent TPU windows on each side for wider peripheral vision without loss of protection. Storm guards, adjustable cuffs, reflective patches and plenty of pockets for personal items, your VHF radio, PLB and more. Imported.

Comments about Mens Elite Offshore Jacket:
I received this jacket as a gift a few years ago. I never had a chance to use it until lately, as I had been sailing in warm climates. The jacket was stored clean and dry in the meantime. However, when I reached Patagonia and needed a serious foul-weather jacket, I found out that the entire liner that makes the water-proofing of the jacket had completely disintegrated, not in a few isolated spots, but everywhere, turning into mere flakes and dust, and the jacket was leaking like a sieve. I have had all sorts of foul-weather gear over the past 25 years, but mostly inexpensive off-brand ones. This is usually how they all die after 2 or 3 years: the liner starts to disintegrate in a few random spots, letting water in where the liner has gone. However, I have never had a jacket where the entire liner failed, like it happened with my Henri Lloyd jacket. I contacted the manufacturer, sending many self-explanatory pictures, but the only thing that they suggested was that I sent them the jacket for inspection. Obviously, from Patagonia this was impossible. Considering what HENRI LLOYD charges for this "top-of-the-line" jacket, I think this is a complete rip-off and I will go back to purchasing cheaper off-brand foul weather gear and replace it every 2 of 3 years of heavy usage: I'll get much greater mileage for my money
