Zhik isotak Smock

Zhik isotak Smock

This new smock ($349) is designed for the dinghy and sportboat sailor, but the big-boat bowman will dig it, too. Glued, taped seams ensure long-term waterproofness, and the adjustable stretch waist panel lets you cinch it tight to prevent getting flushed. www.zhik.com Courtesy of Zhik
Atlantis Microburst Jacket

Atlantis Microburst Jacket

The jacket ($135) weighs only 11 oz., and you can crumple it into a ball the size of a softball. It’s waterproof and windproof, nice to have on a chilly day in the spring or fall. The jacket is highly breathable, but if things get really heated up, large pocket zippers vent heat from the core, and pit zips vent heat from under your arms. www.atlantisweathergear.com
Puma Shorts

Puma OD Shorts

The One Design Shorts ($110) were worn by the PUMA Ocean Racing team during their in-port races, and have been brought back by request for PUMA’s 2011-’12 trip around the world. They’re waterproof, breathable and have reinforced panels for durability. www.puma.com Courtesy of Puma
Helly Hansen Hydro Power Race Bib

Helly Hansen Hydro Power Race Bib

When the weather is unpredictable, a good breathable pair of technical pants is worth every penny.  The Hydro Power Race Bib ($262). Developed with insight from Volvo Ocean Race winner Ericsson Racing, is a high activity sailing salopette that delivers complee waved and wether protection from teh chest to ankles.  Elasticized shoulders and articulated knees keep them snug.  The campanion smock, to complete the set, is $100, sneaking you in just under the budget.  www.helly-hansen.com Courtesy Of Helly Hansen
