As the evenings start to get lighter, we can finally start thinking about the upcoming season and all the new kit we need (or just want!) for summer. A few weeks ago, we introduced you to the Gill ZenTherm range, which is perfect for cool weather. In warmer temperatures, Gill’s Zenlite range is going to be your go-to. Lightweight, flexible and easily adaptable, it will enable you to maintain a full range of movement whilst keeping your body at a comfortable temperature whilst you move about on the water.
Now let us talk you through these key pieces in a little more detail…
Any skiff suit is a great investment and a sailing staple. They work well as a standalone piece, but can also be paired with a rash vest, neoprene top or spray top depending on the weather. The Zenlite skiff suit goes the extra mile to provide a little extra warmth and protection when you need it, while remaining lightweight and super flexible.
The neoprene top will be extremely popular, as you can pair it with any of the other pieces in the Zenlite collection. With 50+ UV protection, it’s ideal for long summer days on the water, and the 4-way stretch ensures it’s not restrictive at all. Being just 1.5mm thick, this is an extremely lightweight layer, but it still includes Gill’s thermal protection technology and provides that essential extra core warmth.
The Zenlite trousers will be a popular choice for those who prefer not to have the thermal protection on top, but appreciate the added protection on their legs. These feature the same zoned technology for stretch and flexibility, as well as the Di-Guard protect for durability. Additionally, the adjustable waist band ensures a secure fit and comfort, enabling you to perform at your peak with no restrictions.
For the sunniest days, the Zenlite shorts offer Di-Guard neoprene protection in the seat, and some thermal protection should you need it. Pair with the Zenlite top for cooler weather, or with a rash vest on the warmest days of the year.
