Whatever you call your sailing kit, 'oilskins', 'oilies', 'foulies' or just 'wet weather gear', if your sailing jacket and sailing trousers are made with 3-layer fabric technology with no lining and visible seams, they are lighter, keep you drier and breath better, keeping you more comfortable for longer in all conditions. That is why sailing kit made with 3-layer technology is the first choice for professional sailors around the world and why our HW1s are the right choice for all sailors from hardcore offshore racers to occasional coastal cruisers.
We use OceanVent Technical Laminated Fabrics with very high quality hydrophilic, waterproof and breathable membranes, laminated to hard wearing, twill weave, nylon outer layers. OceanVent is supplied exclusively to Hudson Wight and we manufacture high specification sailing clothing with a clear mission to make it available at affordable prices by eliminating unnecessary costs in our supply chain and in our routes to market. This means you really can expect better for less.
We're really proud of the reputation we have already created with many satisfied customers across the world including seasoned offshore racers, long distance cruisers, competitive day racers and family coastal cruisers and their unanimous feedback is that Hudson Wight sailing gear performs better than any other kit they have used previously….. and they love our prices.
Hudson Wight Products are available from Sailing Clothing Store, our sales and distribution partner, also based in Cowes, Isle of Wight.Contact

Picked up my new jacket and trousers two weeks ago and the following day flew off to Northern Germany to deliver a new 50’ Hanse back to the UK from the factory. The new clothing proved impressively lightweight, totally dry and kept me warm in the freezing, wet and windy Baltic weather. Very happy with the performance and its outstanding value for money ! The HPX will be on ebay shortly…
