From sailing superstars to committed weekend warriors, marine clothing company Gill solicited a wealth of user input for the Gill Race Collection, a new line of breathable, lightweight and UV-resistant racing gear for warm-weather venues.
The result, according to the company, is the "most innovative, highest-performing race gear [that] includes the lightest performance sailing jacket ever made." The collection consists of 12 products, categorized into lightweight waterproof, soft-shell and next to skin (T-shirts, shorts and accessories). The gear can be decorated with team graphics and logos. Suggested retail prices range from $20 for a mesh headband to $259 for the race jacket. Gill North America LTD, Buford, Ga.
