As unpredictable as the sea can be, sailing will always be the following: cold, wet and difficult. The best way to take on the challenges of inshore and coastal sailing, is to stock up on some of Mylor Chandlery's super selection of fully waterproof and breathable clothing. Encompassing multiple brands and designs, these items are essential for protecting yourself from the most arduous parts of marine sports.

Inshore Sailing Jackets

A.k.a your best friend at sea. A good inshore jacket needs to provide everything in a single item; a highly protective, lightweight and breathable layer, allowing for a significant level of movement, whilst being stylish enough for onshore use. With this in mind, the following are just a few highlights from our jacket selection:

Gill Men's Inshore Lite Jacket - A two layer waterproof jacket, made from a breathable coated fabric and a durable water repellent finish.

Henri Lloyd Women's Wave Sailing Jacket - Features photo-luminescent reflectors (HLPLR) which absorb UV light (sunlight or artificial) in the day and after dark, and releases energy to improve your safety at night.

Gill Inshore Sport Jacket - Providing ideal protection in changing weather conditions, this waterproof jacket is highly compact and features breathable laminated fabric in its design.

Gill Coast Jacket - An all-round piece of high performance sailing clothing with a fully seam sealed construction, hi-vis hood and adjustable cuffs.

Inshore Coastal Trousers

If you don’t have a pair of sufficiently warm, waterproof trousers at sea, then you may as well be wearing nothing below! Luckily the trousers on Myler Chandlery’s rack are all highly water repellent and made for easy movement both on and off the water.

Among the leggings category, we particularly praise the selection of Coast Trousers by Gill, which are all fully lined with a drainage facility, feature a dual layer of coated fabric, and boast adjustable braces and waist bands to achieve a sleeker fit for men, women and children.

Similarly, the Henri Lloyd Men’s Wave Hi-Fit Trousers are perfectly made to accompany the brand’s waterproof jacket. They boast the same luminescent qualities for safety, but are also made from the company’s tried and tested TP1 fabric technology, which keeps water out and lets perspiration escape. Remember, when you order both the wave jacket and trousers, you’ll receive a free attache case worth £80.00.Caring for Inshore Clothing

To get the best performance from any inshore product, it is recommended that care instructions, located on the inside of the garment, are followed.

Gill’s wash-in cleaner has been specifically created for their range of waterproof fabrics. Suitable for washing machine and hand-washing use, it is perfectly formulated to kill bacteria, and prevent unpleasant odours. In short - it will restore and rejuvenate your inshore sailing garments to brand new status.
