Round-the-buoys racing sailors looking for a lightweight but technically advanced racing jacket will appreciate the optimal combination of breathability and durability the two-layer, polyurethane-coated BR1 nylon fabric offers. Water- and windproof with taped seams and a 100% polyester mesh lining that aids donning and speeds up drying. For comfort and warmth, the BR1 Match Jacket features a fleece-lined collar and a foldaway hood with double adjustment. Splash-proof zippers on front, chest and side pockets and double Velcro® cuff fastening prevents water from entering. Articulated sleeves and underarms make it easier to haul in a line or steer your vessel without binding. Imported.
