If you tend to cruise in tropical climes and find that most foul-weather gear is just a bit too heavy, check out this line from Gill. The new Inshore Sport collection offers jackets ($159) and a vest ($110) for men and women that provide protection from the elements in mild conditions. The jackets are lightweight, breathable, and fully waterproof—and look good on or off the boat. They are made from Gill's 2Dot, two-layer laminated fabric with a durable water repellant finish and fully taped seams.
The Inshore Sport jackets and vest are fully mesh lined, which is quick drying and offers cooling ventilation. A packable lightweight hood features two-way adjustment, and zippered hand and internal pockets offer storage. The hem and cuffs are adjustable.
