Women’s wetwear provides a variety of uses from sun protection, warmth or hiking protection. Often made of neoprene, wet wear provides a range of warmth and protection against the elements. Wetwear are a ‘next-to-skin’ fit, and women’s peices are specifically designed to fit the female physique. This made-to-get-wet gear is popular among dinghy or small keel and sport boats. The athletic fit allows a great range of motion- crucial when hopping from tack to tack. You can shop wet wear in a variety of styles and materials. Lighter styles suitable for warmer temperatures are often water resistant. Heavier cold weather options can be fleece lined, hydrophobic and waterproof. Wetwear also offers abrasion resistance in high wear areas to protect your skin from the deck. Styles range from full coverage tops, bottoms and suits to short sleeves, shorts and skiff suits.
