Re: Clothing for sailing in cool or cold weather.

Layers multiple breathable layers. Some marine wear is good, but LL bean and many other sell good stuff too. Like Chef said ski appareal is good. No need to spend marine buckets on the under layers

I have found the marine clothing I buy have been various weight jackets and a good set of foul weather gear. A good pair of foul weather gear is worth the extra money from the cheaper kinds. It will have taped zipperes and pockets and many of them. It will breath as well as double zobbers. It can almost seal you inside too.

Jackets need to be breathable and also windresistant. I have summer ones as well as fall ones.

Shoes- skid residstant, breathable and mesh for hot weather, keanes, etc. Leather for cold weather and a good pair of marine boots.

Take you time buy stiff as you will accumulate it. Look for sales at the ends of seasons, boat shows etc.
