Good gloves are a winner

The new range of Zhik Full Finger and Short Finger Gloves offer all round protection for the active dinghy, sports boats and yachting Dad.

These highly engineered gloves are pre-shaped with the ergonomic pattern designed to work with the flexion of your hands and fingers. Kevlar stitching is used for strength and seams are smartly positioned for maximum durability.

Additional panelling, padding and reinforcement eliminate pressure points and protects for wear and tear. A light yet durable outer face fabric is used with hi-vis reflective pieces for added crew visibility and safety in low light and night sailing.

Zhik Full Finger and Half Finger Gloves, Unisex sizes, XS - XXL, £43.00

A bag he will take everywhere

Zhik's updated luggage ranges includes a new fully wateproof Dry Backpack. There's everything your Dad needs in a functional carry bag, with the security of knowing no water is going to drip in - or out! Designed with an ergonomic fit with comfortable, adjustable straps and back padding, its 35 litre capacity contains an iPad pocket and zipped internal pockets.

Handy additional front and side pockets, plus reflective detail for visibility at night or on a bike, make the Dry BackPack the sailor's go to choice for a multitude of purposes on and off the water.

Available in Black or Ash, £108.00

A Smock for more than just dinghy sailing

Zhik's new Dinghy Smock is made from a high-stretch, breathable, waterproof shell that provides great protection from wind, waves and spray. As well as a stretch fabric, this top stretches to other uses too and crosses upwards for active racing in keelboats and wet sportsboats too, making it a handy all-round item in your kit bag.

The stretchy fabric ensures the smock fits comfortably over your other sailing gear, and moves with you, keeping your movement around the boat free and unrestricted.

Zhik's new, soft Reziseals™, are made from the same fabric technology used in the award winning Isotak X Ocean Smock, creating a comfortable, and highly durable seal around the neck and wrists. Made from a high stretch composite fabric that is constructed into a soft, highly stretchable waterproof seal, they are worlds apart from the traditional sticky latex seals that are prone to perish and wear out.

A plush, thermal fleece lining is laminated inside the smock for additional snugness. With a clean, streamlined style, fully waterproof seams and an adjustable waist to secure the fit, the Smock is ideal for small boat sailors seeking high performance, low-windage protection from the elements across a wide range of conditions.

Adult Dinghy Smock: Available in Black, in unisex sizes XS, XXXL; RRP: £129.95
