Women’s coastal foul weather gear is designed for near shore sailing, and is also appropriate for short to medium distance passage making. The jackets and trousers in this category are waterproof and breathable, and come with features to protect you from the elements when sailing in open waters for one or more days. Cut specifically for women, these styles have a slimmer cut. Trousers often are designed with a drop seat to make going to the head much easier. The range is a good choice for cruising and racing sailors seeking gear that performs well in a wide range of weather and water conditions when sailing on lakes, bays or oceans.
