My coastal Helly Hansen jacket has a tether for a ball cap. The cay is necessaryto prevent the brim of the hood from obscuring vision.

Waterproof, breathable, knee and butt padding (my HH Offshore bib has Kevlar), Fleece pockets at chest level in the bib pants for warming hands. A pouch at chest level and cargo pockets in the pants (self-draining).

A neck guard that tucks away ( a la my Gill Atlantic jacket). Inside pockets. Pockets on the arms that will hold mini flares, a chest high pocket for my PLB (with a clip for its tether), adjustable rubber cuffs.
