In October 2012, Sail Magazine and www.sailmagazine.com published an article by Lindsey Silken reviewing coastal foul weather gear. Here's some of what Lindsey had to say:
"Coastal cruisers and racers experience a range of temperatures and weather, so crossover garments that can be layered--or not--can be worn racing or cruising will top the list. Look for lightweight outer layers and cozy, warm base and mid-layers that won't trap air and moisture. The same three-layer materiels used in bluewater gear are now beginning to make inroads in coastal gear as well. But a set of foulies made with quality two layers fabric will still keep ou plenty comfortable without breaking the bank."
Among the products featured are Gill's i5 Crosswind Salopette, Gill's Extreme Gloves and Atlantis Weather Gear's Aegis jacket, all available at www.WhitecapsFoulWeatherGear.com with free shipping and free merchandise credit.
