foulies for her
I have 2 sets of foulies, West Marine 3rd reef and a set of Navis. The Navis are light and breathable and way more comfortable than the 3rd Reef. In addition the Navis have a fly in the pants that is invaluable (you can relieve yourself without having to totally undress, if you have ever stood a night watch in rough weather you understand that undressing, even below, causes a great heat loss, while you are getting thrown all around the cabin as well). The Navis after 5 seasons or so are not very waterproof anymore but I will probably just buy another set for me.
This question is, however, about foulies for my wife. We live in northern Baja, we will be sailing to South America and throughout the Caribbean. we won't need really heavy ocean gear. My wife is a unusual size, very petite, short and wide. I am very concerned about getting something that fits. I want her to be warm and dry! Regular clothes off the shelf do not fit her.
Suggestions for foulies for women?
