Force 3 gear is made with a heavier two-layer laminated nylon fabric with thermo-taped seams that offers up to 50 percent more waterproofing than Force 2 gear. It’s still lightweight, windproof and doesn’t sacrifice breathability for coastal or light offshore sailing. The Force 3 Jacket protects you with a wide storm collar and microfleece lined pockets for added hand warmth. It’s three inches longer in the back with a heavy reinforcement patch on the seat for added durability. Safety features include large reflective SLAM patches on the shoulders and cuff, emergency whistle in right hand pocket, a large yellow reflective hood, and safety tabs on the zipper to attach a beacon or knife. Imported.
