More information on Spandex and Lycra Protective Layers:
When you’re sailing a technical dinghy or keelboat that requires a lot of jumping from side to side, you’ll want to save your skin with a spandex or Lycra protective layer. These shorts and pants are meant to fit next to you skin to add a layer of protection against grip tape, non-skid decking and all bumps and scratches you might find in between tacks. Styles that move with you won’t restrict any of your actions. These pieces can be worn on their own, over hiking pads, or under full hikers.
