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.Contact

"One of the main challenges short handed racing offshore is to find kit that will keep you warm and dry but at the same time allow for intensive bursts of activity, giving room for a wide range of movement and not making you roasting hot in a flash. The HW1s really performed under tough Fastnet Race conditions, the Trousers are a good fit, are strong and allow a full range of movement in the knee; worn with the HW1 Smock with its high collars provided a superior level of dryness and comfort against the lashing rain and waves of the Irish Sea and no excuses to get up onto that foredeck and take a wave in the face."
