Typhoon International is delighted to announce that it will be launching its first range of personal protective apparel designed specifically with dinghy sailors in mind at Metstrade 2021.

This exciting new collection benefits from Typhoon's 70 plus years of experience in technical marine clothing manufacturer and design, with the resultant products incorporating the latest in fabric technologies, innovations and features while offering a timeless aesthetic.

A truly comprehensive range suitable for all, it comprises a selection of products to ensure comfort while sailing, without compromising on range of movement, no matter what the weather.

"We're very pleased to be introducing Typhoon's new dinghy range at METS," says Amy Grealish, marketing and communications manager at Typhoon International. "Following considerable research and development, the extensive range covers everything a dinghy sailor could need, from drysuit to buoyancy aid to wetsuit. Professional or amateur, male, female or youth, our innovative collection of high performance and durable apparel has got them covered."

Products in Typhoon's bespoke new dinghy collection include:

Available in youth sizes L-XL and adult sizes S/M/L/XL/XXL

Runswick4 and Reeth3 Boots

The Runswick4 is an advanced, hard wearing dinghy boot, designed to withstand the tough demands of top performance dinghy racing.

Full side lace up fastening promotes easy entry and creates the ultimate fit, while an inner gusset limits water ingress along that side of the boot.

Warmth is afforded by 4.5mm of neoprene, and durability by rubber on the sole, toe and heel. A protective ribbed upper allows for excellent grip on the toe straps, especially when hiking.

Available in UK sizes 4 -12, RRP £79.95

The Reeth3 is a durable 3mm zipped hiking boot made from REACH compliant neoprene.

Zip slip is prevented by a clever hook and loop tab, while water ingress at the zipper is limited by an inner gusset.

With a stiff sole for complete support and protection, the Reeth3 has great non-slip properties with the ribbed upper offering excellent grip on toes straps when hiking.

Available in UK sizes 3 -14, RRP £49.95

Towyn and Colwyn Gloves

The Towyn glove has been designed with a focus on efficiency of movement, using a specialist fabric technology combined with ultra-grip durable palm protection to maximise performance, durability and dexterity when used on the water.
