Re: Foul Weather Gear

Normally I am a big fan of Gill products. Primarily because it just seems to fit me better than other brands. But the other day I found an Atlantis Aegis jacket at Marshall's for under a $100. I didn't really need it, but decided to buy it anyway. I don't know if they are at all Marshall's or they just happened to have one, but I am very happy with it.

Re: Foul Weather Gear

I picked up a pair of Atlantis Aegis bibs, and an Atlantis rain jacket from the closeout bin at Defender or Hamilton Marine, can't remember, well under $100 each. I also got a revere float coat for under $100.00 on close out. Its all nice to have stuff, I am mostly a day sailor, and a sunshine sailor, so I can't have a hard time justifying really expensive foulies. Worth looking around anyway.

Re: Foul Weather Gear

+1 for Atlantis. I picked up their heavy spray top and have been impressed with how it sheds water. Good seals, and I really like the kangaroo pocket and arm pocket.

Good quality stuff.

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.

Fisherman have to wash fish guts off their foulies, rig workers just get covered in mud (I worked in the oil patch when I was younger). I have to deal with neither. I also like breathable boots as I develop foot problems in rubber boots. My feet also stay drier and warmer in breathable boots.

On the other hand I do wear rubber work gloves with liners to keep my hands warm and dry.
