#1: VX Life Jackets

The VX range is designed specifically to help sailors and windsport athletes move well and stay safe while training or racing on the water. Low profile side entry, low bulk lightweight foam, storage pocket and great colours make this a sailing must-have.

Shop sail + wind PFDs

"Absolutely amazing. The PFD was great, it was super comfortable, whilst being very functional - which is important for an essential safety item. It fitted really well, looked absolutely amazing and really high quality. Loved the colour!!"- VX Review by Archie, UK.

#2: Sailing boots

Vaikobi Speed-Grip and FLEX Sailing boots offer superior grip, support and feel for sailors looking for comfort and performance. Designed to outlast your other brand of sailing boots!

Shop sailing boots

"These are the best dinghy hiking boot I've used. Without the removable ankle strap (great innovation), they provide a nice balance between mobility in the boat when on the move and solid foot support to lock in when hiking." - High cut boot Review by Anonymous, AUS.

#3: Thermal tops

Insulating tops are a must-have for sailing in cool conditions. Choose from our lightweight base layer tops or hydroflex tops, ideal for layering under jackets or wetsuits on cold days.

Shop tops

"This top is great for cool days especially when the water is still cold. The fleece breaths well even if the sun pops out. I requested the bright color some time ago. It's great for increased visibility." - Hydroflex top review by William T, USA.

#4: Sailing gloves

Our new range of V-Grip gloves are set to change the game for sailors and watersports addicts who need reliable grip, and hand protection. Designed and tested with longevity in mind, there's a V-Grip glove style made for you.

#5: Polarized eyewear

The VIZE+ range of sunnies delivers a balance of performance, eye protection and design features that allow you to spot those wind shifts and tide lines.

"These polarised sunglasses are perfect for cutting glare from the water on a sunny day. Also seem to increase the definition of chop and waves. Pleasingly, the Vaikobi sunglasses retainers fit on snugly so there are no worries about these sunnies falling off." - Vaikobi sunglasses review by Guy G, AUS.
