GILL HYDROPHOBE JACKET

The Ultimate Mid Layer

The new Hydrophobe range of jackets and vests provides everyday protection against the elements. Designed and engineered as an ideal marine grade mid layer on or off the boat. Or a perfect outer layer to keep you warm and dry during the crisp winter weather. Down is a fantastic natural insulator because it’s so light and lofty and traps air so effectively. Not so true if it gets wet. So we developed this marine jacket with water-repellent down, so that when (rather than if) it gets wet, it continues to perform. The outer shell is windproof and water-repellent and the 650 fill power down has a fantastic warmth to weight ratio, you’ll be surprised just how warm and light it is.
