I feel your pain--both my husband and I need to replace our foulies this year. I had posted on the 'hersailnet' forum regarding foulies because the jacket I had tried on at my local WestMarine was NOT cut for a woman (I'm not a big person, but was not comfortable with how restrictive it was). I got many good suggestions, and am going to be checking out some climbing wear in addition to marine gear. Unfortunately, none of this will be cheap!

Anyway, my suggestion is to have your wife try on whatever you decide to get as well...she might find that she won't be comfortable in the same things that suit you.
