Re: Anyone make their own jackets etc.

David, you need to pick your spots when buying foul weather gear. I bought the HH Skagen jacket at that same Annapolis store last year for $189. List is $389. They discount heavily during the October boat show. I've.been very happy with my purchase.

For $189 I don,t think it is worth it trying to make your own. Besides getting the right thread, fabric, zippers, etc you would have to I figure out how to seal all the seams etc.
