More information on Undergarments, Base Layers & Middle Layers:

When shopping for what to wear when sailing, many people immediately go to offshore apparel, spray tops and sailing jackets. While those things are important, they are not all you need. Just like you can’t build a house without a foundation, you can’t go sailing comfortably without a good base layer under your foulies.


As the name implies, base layers are the first layer of clothing you put on. It is a next-to-skin layer designed to move moisture from your body, providing comfort and allowing your breathable gear to do its job more effectively. Worn between the Base Layer and Outer Layer (aka: Foul Weather Gear), the Middle Layer is an insulating layer meant to keep you warm when the temperatures turn colder.


APS offers undergarments, base & middle layers for each season keeping you sailing comfortably through summer to winter.

Men's Undergarments- Shop a selection of underwear, boxers and briefs specifically made for the active man. High tech fibers create undergarments that are comfortable and cooling. Also available in women's undergarment styles.

Men's Base Layers- Base layers can be found in a range of different weights, thicknesses and styles. Made from materials to insulate and regulate these pants and shirts will be crucial to your comfort on the water. Also available in women's base layer styles.

Men's Mid Layers- Jackets, fleeces, pull-overs, softshells and salopettes! When you need that extra layer against the temperatures, a middle layer is the answer. These pieces are great for transitional wear in between seasons and look great on and off the water. Also available in women's mid layers styles.
