The Gill range has Offshore, Coast and Inshore options.

The Coast range still has many features of the Offshore range such as; Tall collar with wrap around Velcro flaps, rollaway hood, PU seals at cuffs, reflective patches, and adjustable hems.

The main difference between Coast and Offshore is the lighter fabric plus fewer pockets and extra features. The bottom line is a jacket which is much lighter and more maneuverable and almost half the price of the serious offshore kit.

Below we put side by side the specs for the full blown offshore jacket and compare them to the Coast jacket. If sailing coastal but in cold conditions you would may be better off with the offshore jacket.
