Re: Foulies - anything other than Musto worthwhile?
Weather can range from 85 hot and humid to 25 and snowing that time of the year. It's a tough mission to have the right combination of clothes. Layers. Have plenty of dry non-cotton long underwear as well as shorts and short sleeves, fleece in different weights, stuff you can peel off and put on as conditions change. Have a good windbreaker. Sometimes my boat looks as if a clothes bomb went off when sailing in spring or fall. Most of the time, roomy single layer rain gear is best so layers can be adjusted underneath. A heavy, insulated rain jacket is no good when it's hot although, as I mentioned above, the Goretex LL Bean Maine Wardens Jacket is mighty nice if it's cold. It's colder and damper on the water than in the mountains so at 40 degrees on a boat a winter weight jacket is a welcome piece of clothing.
