We think you should be able to fit all of your waterproof gear in a really small bag, and our fully waterproof/breathable Microburst line is the most lightweight, compact sailing apparel you’ll find on this planet. With today’s technical fabrics and layering techniques, sailing jackets and pants don’t need to be bulky to be good, so whether you’re leaving the dock to fish, sail or just hang out on the water, go light, go dry and go fast. Go Microburst.

Waterproof Rating: 10,000 MM
Breathability Rating: 10,000 g/sq. m/24 hours

Designed for warm weather sailing and boating.  Lightweight and highly breathable yet waterproof in almost all conditions, and packable so you can stuff it into any bag or lazarette.  The hood is different on the men’s and women’s jackets – that’s on purpose and geared to deliver against what each asked us for: men wanted easy stowage and a low profile while women wanted a full hood that offers great coverage.  The pants are designed without chafe patches to keep them light and packable, so they’re great for situations where wind and water resistance are key though not great for non-skid decks.



Examples


• Jacket: Inshore keelboat & big boat sailing. Center console fishing
• Vest: Warm weather sailing & boating in breeze
• Spray Top: Inshore dinghy & keelboat sailing
• Pant: Inshore day sailing and power boating
