ZHIK's new INS200 range redefines inshore & coastal gear

by Liz Rushall 18 Nov 2020 07:03 PST

Zhik's new INS200 range takes a new approach for inshore and coastal wet weather gear, with a streamlined design that easily transitions to the street.

It's packed with all the features for excellent protection and performance, without adding unnecessary bulk or an overly engineered design. It has a clean look and a neat fit that moves with your body and is suitable for many people's regular sailing and boating.

Made from a 3 layer Vecta fabric technology, that is lightweight, waterproof with a breathable membrane suitable for moderate levels of activity and higher levels of waterproof durability than the industry average. Inside all seams are taped with further reinforcement on critical seam junctions.

The smooth hood design conforms to the head and the fit can be adjusted with the two front and rear pull cords for a customised fit. Inside the hood is a neat internal gusset made from Spandex. This keeps the hood in contact with your forehead, preventing water ingress and wind and makes the hood move with your head.

To reduce bulk around the wrist, a non-absorbant PU fabric is bonded to the inside of the cuff, which creates an effective seal around the wrist when the outer cuff is tightened with the velcro adjuster.

The pocket design contributes to the minimalist, sculpted style and fit of the jacket. Two darted, side zip pockets maximise stowage space yet reduce bulk. Tiny laser cut drainage holes allow any water that gets in the pocket to escape. There's also a discreet, expandable chest pocket and an inside pocket for valuables.

The INS200 high fit salopettes come with a snug, pre-formed waist for a secure fit and great manoeuvrability and the broad, adjustable elastic suspenders are comfortable to wear for extended use.

A well positioned cargo pocket uses the same abrasion resistant 500D fabric that reinforces the knee, crotch and rear panels, for protection against wear from tools and sailing knifes.

Behind the two-way front zip, a large waterproof gusset enables easy dressing and ergonomically designed ankle adjustments prevent water ingress, distributing pressure evenly around the leg and creating a tighter seal.
