Gill’s latest sailing pants and shorts are fully waterproof and have reinforced panels on the seat and knees to provide durable protection on wet and abrasive deck surfaces. For those with especially tender tushies, there are also specially designed internal seat pockets into which you can slide a Gill short pad to add some “cushioned support” when sitting on a hard deck. The pants also have deep side pockets and secure cargo pockets for storing snacks and tools. The curmudgeons of the world can scoff all they want, but who hasn’t thought at one time or another that they could do with a little more cushioning down under when sitting on the rail all day?
