My OPINIONS (Thry are only opinions, so take them as such)
I have really been impressed with Gil Products. Their offshore stuff is nice.
Depending on the model, it is my undersatndin Lloyd makes the West Marine stuff??? THat is what I was told. I personally own the Third reef stuff. Ok for what we do. Long time offshore, I would go with the Gil Products. As far as Bibs, here are the Gills:
If you are heading south, I would save my money on awesome offshore geat and get a really nice, thin jacket. Goretex, big pockets, etc. That is about all you will wear. It was not unusual to see me in my bathing suit bottoms and a full jacket on top!! Just me, though.
PS I would not buy a grey outfit. Not sure why they even sell those. Red or yellow only.
