Re: Foul Weather Gear

There are definitely two schools of thought when it comes to foul weather gear. I think breathables are fine if you buy good ones ($$$) and maintain them. There are a lot more people at sea wearing PVC rain gear - fishermen, rig workers, commercial mariners - than there are yachties in their Gill or Henri Lloyd suits and Dubarry boots. I try to buy most of my gear the same as the commercial fishermen do. Cheaper and sturdier.
