Stay warm and dry, whether hauling upwind, weathering stormy seas, or being at sea on a long night watch. Our rugged, comfortable foul weather gear is new for 2011 and is designed specifically for coastal cruising and racing. 100% waterproof and breathable, made of 100% Nylon with a microporous coating and a hydrophilic top coat that draws moisture away from the body, while keeping cold seawater out. Unlined to speed up dry time and to reduce interlayer binding, and articulated and contoured to fit you well and reduce windage to allow freedom of movement, this gear is integral to your coastal adventures.
The bibs have shoulder straps with hook-and-loop adjustment, two-way storm flap with a drainage channel, and two-way non-corrosive center front zip. Hook-and-loop ankle adjusters and internal gusset gives you a secure fit. Reinforced at the seat and knee with 500D Cordura® (urethane-coated rugged Cordura weave) and diverted critical reinforcement seams reduce wear. Imported.
