March 4, 2008

Gill Sailing GearStarted in 1975 Gill Sailing Gear was created with the idea that you could make sailing wear that would keep you warm and dry at a reasonable cost. Since then Gill has become one of the most respected and desired names in the sailing world.With their layering guide and dot system, it’s easy to find exactly what you need to keep you warm and protected no matter what the weather.

Gill’s Layering Guide:

Base Layer: This layer worn next to the skin is designed to move moisture out, away from your skin. Keeps you warm by moving the moisture created from bursts of energy away from the body. Also insulates you during especially cold days.

Mid Layer: This layer is the primary insulating layer, to be worn over the base layer but below the protective outer layer. Made of synthetic fibers that do not absorb water it will keep you warm. Gill has different fabric weights to choose from depending on personal preference and weather conditions.

Gill Coast Sport JacketOuter or Protective Layer: Created purely to keep the elements out. This layer does not have any insulating properties, however it will prevent the wind and water from entering those important mid and base layers. In order to work most efficiently, the fabric is breathable to allow moist air that builds up inside escape.
