Hudson Wight unveils new high-spec all-round Performance Sailwear range on Stand: B012

It's only been a year since Hudson Wight first entered the marine leisure market and was exhibiting at the PSP Southampton Boat Show in 2013. It may also come as something of a surprise to learn that we were the first sailing clothing brand to hit the market since the launch of the internet in 1989! The business has since gained an increasing foothold with the sailing and general boating fraternity and we've scored high praise for our HW1 range from respected testers right across the sailing media.

Based in Cowes, Isle of Wight, Hudson Wight's initial range was based around the HW1s - a set of top quality, all-purpose, Jacket and Salopettes - selling at inshore prices and direct through the online shop. This year, we have also opened our Cowes Showroom and are also retailing from there, as well as online at

At the PSP Southampton Boat Show 2014, Hudson Wight is launching an updated range of HW1s as well as a brand new HW1 Smock and a new Performance Jacket for use on board and ashore. 

Listening to customers!

In their customer feedback Hudson Wight's clients were quick to point out that last year's HW1 Jacket and Salopettes were the best all-round gear they'd ever worn but the HW team has also listened to some ideas as to how to make them even better.

The updated range - still called HW1s - continues to use OceanVent 3-layer technical fabric, further developed this year to be equally as waterproof (20,000mm) but 20% more breathable than last year's HW1 products. Additionally, there have been some design tweaks and a brand new addition to the HW1 range, the HW1 Smock.

Key product improvements | HW1 2014 Range:
