Re: Foul Weather Gear

For what its worth -- A friend who is a salmon fisherman out of Kenai Alaska uses commercial fishing clothing. He is a lot more active hauling in the fish than most of us will ever be on a sailboat, and is out in all kinds of weather. Some of the foul weather gear made for commercial fishing that I've seen, both in San Diego and in Bellingham, appear to be as well or better made than foul weather gear made for recreational sailors, and is a lot less expensive.
