Hi, this is Kyle from APS and I'm here to share with you our top sailing gift picks for sailing women in your life. I'm going to start off with nautical jewelry. These are from CHART Metalworks. This is a bangle piece. It's an adjustable bangle and the charms that they have here are custom from the company. They come with either an anchor, a sailboat or a compass. Nice packaging and they come with a nice original saying in each one of these. This is the necklace and this is in the compass. And then my daughter lent me back her earring. Nice pieces from CHART Metalworks.
Next up, super popular ... Since we started carrying these way back in the day, they just fly off the shelf. I know in my family, they're very popular and on staff. Of course these are the Rainbow women's sandals. Non-slip bottom, nice leather top, break in beautifully. Very popular piece. Can't go wrong. Women's sizes.
Okay, SailorBag. Nice tote bag from SailorBags. Hand strap, nice and roomy inside, side pockets, zip pocket, clip for keys and you can actually close the whole thing down. SailorBag Newport Tote.
Okay, jackets. This is Henry Lloyd Wave Jacket. It's of an inshore category. Beautiful styling available in a number of different colors but with a similar styling throughout. Medium neck. It has a stowaway floral hood here. Great piece for when it's kind of spitting rain on the boat, you're going to the grocery or you're out at the game or taking a hike and you just want something to keep you dry, comfortable and looking great. The Henry Lloyd Wave Jacket for women.
Okay, practical safety piece here. This for anybody needing a life jacket, especially dinghy sailors who typically keep them on at all times. The Astral Layla PFD. This is designed specifically for women. It comes from outside the sailing market but they've really dominated for the last eight or so years. Their adjustability, all over, their easy side entry, the fact that the panels are soft and articulate around the body, that there are hand warmer pockets here, side pockets here. Just a really nice, comfortable piece and once you get it adjusted for yourself ... You can see this articulates ... You barely notice you have it on. Gone are the old days of those stiff foam jackets. These just become a second part of your body. This is the Astra Layla PFD. Great for any woman sailing in a dinghy or that tends to wear life jackets around the water.
