I touched a bit on our purchase of some Gill foul weather gear back in my post about the Miami Boat Show Vendors that we visited, but this week they arrived! Of course, we had to try them on to make sure everything fit okay, and perhaps most importantly, see how awesome we looked. Runways of Milan, here we come.
We elected to go with the Gill OS1 jackets given our offshore sailing plans and just as we expected, the gear fit great and we feel confident about it’s ability to keep us nice and dry when we’re sailing in wet conditions. We did also get the OS1 trousers to make for a complete outer layer set, but didn’t include them in this photo shoot as we felt the level of cool was already too high. . Now its on to finding boots and some inner and mid-layers to round everything out and look at things like inflatable pfd’s/harnesses and other safety gear to make sure our journey across the Atlantic goes as smoothly as possible.
