Gill's Fall-Winter Line Features Three New Jackets

Gill North America is celebrating the brand's 30th anniversary by introducing an exciting fall-winter line with advanced new fabrics and cutting-edge designs that illustrate Gill's passion for innovation.

Three new products --- the Coast Warm Jacket, the i3 microfleece mid-layer and Softshell Race Jacket embody Gill's signature style-combining versatility with high-tech performance and easy wearability.

The Coast Warm Jacket, i3 microfleece mid-layer and Softshell Race Jacket are part of a new generation of Gill products that draws upon sailors' experience from the last America's Cup campaign to create exceptionally lightweight, yet breathable clothing. The jackets use high-performance, flexible fabrics that stretch fluidly and offer great freedom of movement.

"The company has worked with the most advanced fabric manufacturers in the Far East and employed pioneering technology to introduce the Coast Warm Jacket-a perfect lifestyle jacket for on or off the boat," said David Pritchard, Gill North America President. "The Softshell Race Jacket is a revolutionary new addition to our line that breathes like fleece, but is waterproof like a hard shell, making it ideal 'spray zone' gear."

With a stowable hood for added protection during brisk weather, the Coast Warm features Gill's renowned 2 Dot™ breathable outer shell complete with a warm mircrofleece lining. Key benefits of the Coast Warm Jacket are waterproof protection and durability. Four colors are unisex; two colors are for women.
