Re: Foul Weather Gear

Strongly consider "coastal" or "in-shore" foul weather gear, which is cheaper and more versatile than "off-shore" gear. Combined with a polypro base layer and a watch cap and a pile layer you should be comfortable over a wide range of conditions. Avoid foul weather gear that has so much velcro that you'll find your arms sticking to your torso or open "hand warmer" pockets that snag your tiller or winch handle. Your jacket should have a zippered, inside, chest pocket; flaps over the zippers, and a hood that fits you.

Bibs aren't as critical but wide suspender straps with delrin clips that you can open with gloved hands are nice.
