We’ve been developing this piece for two years, and it is ready for prime time. It’s the lightweight cousin to the Aegis Spray Top, but we use the term “lightweight” in the best possible way: weighs in at significantly less than a single pound, yet keeps the water where it belongs. Available in XXS and XS sizes for junior dinghy sailors who want a ton more performance than the standard “junior” gear for not a ton more money.
AWG VMG Fabric: Lightweight, packable, fully waterproof, windproof & breathable 4.5 oz. 2.5-layer ripstop nylon. Raised microprint pattern protects the waterproof/breathable membrane. 80/20 DWR.
• 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.
• 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

Sailing in the gulf stream getting doused with wave after wave this was the perfect top.

The Microburst spray top is used by me for running in foul weather. It is outstanding, keeps me toasty and dry regardless of the weather. Only wish I could have gotten the color I wanted the High Rish Red, but alas it was out of stock.

We're using the new microburst spray tops for a 4-man Etchells team in San Diego, CA. and they are working great. Lightweight, easy-on / easy-off, and they do a nice job of keeping the spray off - as well as drying very fast. Quick rinse off when you're back at the dock and they're good to go again the next day! Great job guys!
