On land or at sea - Gill is the perfect choice for versatile weather protection

Versatile Gill clothing is perfect for land or sea

Like many of the outdoor brands available at ArdMoor, Gill has a wide range of jackets, trousers, mid-layers and much more to help keep the cold and rain out and a smile on your face while enjoying your favourite outdoor pursuits.

The versatility of this British maritime company is a huge attraction for thousands of sailing enthusiasts worldwide and has been for decades. But the adaptability of this iconic clothing brand has meant is has gained many landlocked followers, too.

Behind Gill’s modern looking, ergonomic designs is a wealth of cutting-edge, tried-and-tested technology that has been developed over the company’s 46-year history.

In the 1970s, founder Nick Gill was a young sailor keen to make protective clothing to wear when taking part in his passion – dinghy sailing. During this time, the go-to material for waterproof clothing was PVC – watertight, but very limited when it came to design.

Over the following decades, Nick and his team at Gill created a range of outstanding fabrics, membranes and materials that have gone into making range after range of exceptional sailing kit, which culminates in the latest reincarnation of its OS3 classic – the Coastal Jacket.


The OS3 Coastal Jacket is primarily designed for sailing in fairly calm coastal waters but can certainly handle any foul weather you’d find on land. This is why this iconic Gill jacket is a favourite with sailing enthusiasts and those just looking to stay dry when the heavens open.

During 2021, Gill has re-jigged and updated a few of its core products that will benefit sailors and dog walkers alike.

As well as highly waterproof jackets, Gill makes some incredibly comfortable down gilets and jacket. The Hydrophobe range is ideal for anyone looking for warmth, weather resistance and comfort in one package.

Available in contemporary colours and stylish silhouettes, these Gill gilets and jackets make the perfect mid-layer for when the temperature drops. But as an everyday, throw-on top-layer, the Hydrophobe range makes the perfect choice.

Eco innovations

This year, Gill has launched a range of products made from recycled yarn, constructed mainly from recycled plastic bottles, which could have ended up in land fill or blowing around the planet for years to come.

Gill’s eco-friendly rash vests come with all the comfort and protection you’d expect from Gill, but with the added assurance that you are helping reduce plastic waste with every purchase. The Gill Eco Pro Rash Vests are available in Men’s, Women’s and Junior sizes, with the Junior sizes featuring a bright orange cuff and detailing for improved visibility and safety.


Gill’s accessories range is just as extensive as its clothing collection. Waterproof beanies and backpacks sit alongside cool sunglasses and warm socks and gloves. And for when it’s time to hit the beach again, Gill has everything you need from changing robes and microfibre towels to boardshorts, T-shirts and caps to help you enjoy your visit to the coast.

Gill is one of the world’s best known technical sailing clothing brands, and its versatility means you can appreciate this British company’s dedication to weather protection every day.
