New for 2021: Announcing ZHIK's new OFS700 women's jacket and salopettes

by Zhik 14 Dec 2020 23:03 PST

For 2021 Zhik have re-named all their foul weather ranges for easier recognition in store, with the OFS prefix for offshore/coastal products and INS for inshore/coastal products.

One new line to join the Zhik range is the OFS700 coastal/offshore jacket for women and unisex salopettes. Designed to cross over a range of sailing conditions, OSF700 is constructed from Zhik's two-layer Apex, a highly durable fabric technology incorporating a rugged, hydrophilic, breathable membrane and with a durable water repellent (DWR) outer.

Fully seam taped throughout, each critical seam junction is further reinforced to ensure ultimate waterproof protection. Both jacket and salopettes are lined with a soft internal mesh that maximises airflow and breathablility when active and traps body heat in colder conditions.

The OFS700 womens jacket is tailored to allow layering underneath. It comes with generously sized utility pockets, separate fleece-lined hand warmers and a zipped chest pocket, with highly durable YKK® Aquaguard® Water resistant zips used throughout.

The high cut ocean collar offers plenty of protection from wind and spray, with a full face shield which can be folded down when conditions ease. The hood has an integral peak with side and rear adjustment for a close, bespoke fit and after use it stows away inside the large collar pouch.

Reflexite® safety strips positioned on the shoulders, wrist and hood increase your visibility to other crew members and the hardwearing, reinforced lower back panel protects the jacket from from non-slip deck abrasion.

The jacket sleeves are double sealed, with outer velcro adjusted wrist tabs and inner adjustable PU cuffs, preventing water ingress.

Also new is the OFS700 Salopette which is customised for a personalised, comfortable fit using Zhik's signature 'set & forget' streamlined suspender adjustments together with the easily adjusted waist cinch. The soft mesh suspenders provide maximum airflow, flexibility and comfort for prolonged use.

The knee, seat, crotch area and the ankle cuffs are protected from coarse, non-slip decks, with a tough 500 denier abrasion resistant fabric. An easily accessible cargo pocket and multi-tool pouch are made with the same abrasion resistant fabric to reduce wear and tear from tools and blades.

A fitted ankle closure is adjusted with an ergonomically-shaped, velcro tightening system which distributes pressure evenly around the leg, creating a snug, tight seal. Inside the trousers a generous inner gusset sits behind the two-way YKK® Vislon® front zip, giving additional waterproof protection.

Availability - Due in stockists March/April 2021
