    I am wondering what everyone uses for sailing gear. Keep in mind the balmy PNW has waters that fluctuate between 45F and 50F, so keep in mind that I like warmer gear. I am interested in trousers and a spray top specifically.

    Sailing in sunny Southern California I am able to wear shorts and my life vest only, at least most of the time.

    A kayak paddler spay top and pants with fleece or some other synthetic base layer works well for keeping me warm and dry as long as I don't go swimming. You can add some neoprene booties if your feet get cold.

    I love polartec fleece clothing for cooler temps , stays warm wet and dries quickly . I have pullovers, pants, socks and gloves and a hats made from the stuff. When its really cold I have neoprene waterski gloves and booties ( use polypro socks under them to keep your feet from sweating )

    When its warmer, I use a long sleeve synthetic top , just to keep the sun off me . and a Hat !

    and of course a PFD , Neoprene versions can be very warm .
