BLUE-JACKET

New additions to Gill’s collection of performance gear are the Navigator Jacket­—a lightweight, waterproof and breathable piece of outerwear for coastal mariners—and Waterproof Socks, the company’s first waterproof, windproof and breathable socks. The jacket has fully taped seams and non-absorbent, quick-drying synthetic insulation, which makes it a good choice for boating in the colder months. A rollaway hood with adjustable neck, adjustable cuffs and storm-guarded zipper help keep water out and heat in.

The reflective detail on the pull cord at the neck makes for good visibility. The Navigator comes in two colors: graphite gray and blue. Pair it with the company’s new waterproof socks, which are thin enough to be worn inside boots and performance footwear. They’re made with a nylon outer shell and breathable membrane that reduces the buildup of perspiration. Price: jacket, $195; socks, $50. gillmarine.com
