Again, if the 5-6 people you have to outfit are your regular crew, and will normally be the same people all the time, it would make sense to get high-end marine foul weather gear for them, as they will definitely be needing it. If you just want to have spare foul weather gear aboard, for whoever may happen to be along, then I'd go low-end, as they really should be responsible for their own foul weather gear.
You don't say whether the gear is for relatively permanent crew, or for use by transient guests.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
