Starting in September 2012, Sail Magazine and www.sailmagazine.com published a three-part gear review focusing on foul weather gear. The first installment is about Bluewater foul weather gear. Here's some of what Sail Magazine had to say:
"Bluewater racers and cruisers have to deal with whatever the elements throw at them, which means foul weather gear has to be as weatherproof as possible, and durable enough for weeks of hard use. Look for heavy-duty breathable three layer fabrics, robust wear patches and well-taped seams. Wicking base layers need to minimize chafe--remember you may be wearing them for some time--while mid-layers that can also double as a light outer layer are great for making the transition from foul weather to fair."
