Gill Marine Gear Worth Checking Out
Posted At 9/16/2013 5:00:00 AM
Hello readers, Art here — I’ve recently been getting asked a lot about our Gill marine gear. Several customers have asked me what my favorite products are and which I recommend. I have several which include a Gill PFD jacket, Gill trousers, and a Gill jacket. In no particular order, here’s what they are and why I recommend them.
- The Gill Side Buoyancy is first and foremost, US Coast Guard approved, which is always a big plus in my book. This PFD Jacket gives its user a lot of freedom to move around while still remaining comfortable. Also, it has a more unique design than many other PFDs.
- The Gill Wash Bag is plain and simple — just a really great bag. Two qualities I value most in a bag are whether or not it can fit all my things and how durable it is. This bag is both spacious and tough. Check and check. It’s not too big but is big enough to fit everything I need for a night out.
- In many areas, the weather is starting to get cold. The Gill i3 Polarclava is a great piece to have as temperatures decrease. It’s bound to keep your head and neck warm without being too bulky. Plus, it’s wind resistant and flexible. It can be used as a full balaclava or simply for keeping your neck warm.
- Another piece of sailing gear that is great to have with you on sailing trips as the weather gets colder is the Gill Pro Salopettes (Trousers). While it’s not going to keep you as warm as the Gill i3 Polarclava, it does a good job at protecting its users from wind and water. You can utilize its adjustable Velcro ankle closure for full weather protection.
- The Gill OS1 Jacket in my opinion is one of the best jackets in the market for bad weather conditions. Coupled with a fleece lined channel and ocean height collar with high, wrap-around faceguard, it’s bound to keep you warm. Plus, it’s durable and waterproof while breathable at the same time.
