Hydrophobe Down Jacket // $139.00 – 179.00

Gill Hydrophobe JacketLooking forward to cold weather sailing? Why not, if you’re wearing Gill’s new Hydrophobe Down jacket or vest! Stylish, contemporary, and functional, this product line was designed specifically for the marine environment. Gill’s jackets and vests are insulated with 650-fill-power and packed with a 90/10 water-resistant duck down; it’s lightweight, super warm, and perfect for sailing in cold, wet, and windy conditions.

As Gill reminds us, down is a fantastic natural insulator because it’s so light and lofty and traps air so effectively. As sailors know, that’s not so true if it gets wet. So, Gill developed this sailing wear with water-repellent down for all-weather comfort and everyday appeal. Gill says the unique coated micro-baffle construction is non-clumping and traps warmth better by resisting water longer and drying quicker. Constructed with a high collar, full front zipper, and bilateral hip pockets, the grey outer layer contrasts with a bright red lining. Sailors will appreciate hand warmer pockets, an internal chest pocket, and the adjustable hem. With its windproof and water-repellent outer shell, the jackets and vests are lightweight and easy to pack and stow.

The men’s Hydrophobe Down line comes in Charcoal, sizes XS through XXL. Women’s Hydrophobe Down products are available in pewter sizes 6 through 14. Men and women’s jackets are $179.00. Men’s and women’s vests are $139.00. Shop GillNA.com, Amazon.com, or your favorite marine retailer to get on board for winter sailing in style.
