Henri Lloyd Elite Offshore Range

jackets

Henri Lloyd’s newest Elite Offshore Range jacket is 30 percent lighter and 20 percent more breathable than the company’s other top-end foul weather gear. Henri Lloyd claims a sailor wearing a three-layer complement of Elite Offshore kit will be wearing a full 2 pounds less weight. It has a hood with a transparent window to optimize peripheral vision, a “micro climate” mid-layer and something called “Slide Glide.” The latter allows the base, middle and outer layers to slide more smoothly over one another, making it easier to pull on your gear belowdecks before turning out for your watch in stinky weather. Jackets and trousers are available in both men’s and women’s sizes. $625.
