Recently Viewed Items.Spray tops aren't what they used to be. With better fabrics and designs, and an understanding of the importance of layering, we're getting more from them.
As a result, what used to be the garment of choice among dinghy sailors and bowmen is now the most utilitarian piece of wet weather gear anyone on the boat can own.
They may be singular in purpose, but spray tops definitely are not created equal. Lucky for us, we scored perfect conditions. It was windy, wet, and rough for six of seven days, and every day temperatures were cool and dry, which necessitated wearing them all day, every day.
We made sure our testers weren't wearing cotton shirts, which negates the whole breathability concept, and for this, Gill provided its Technical Tee, a wicking T-shirt that works extremely well. She also explained, in layman's terms, what all the fabric jargon meant. There are two basic waterproof and breathable fabric types: two-ply or three-layer laminate.
A two-ply fabric is essentially a nylon face coated on the inside with a waterproof and permeable polyurethane coating or membrane that allows water vapor to bleed out through fabric.
A water-repellent finish referred to as Durable Water Repellent is added to the outside of the fabric. The DWR encourages water to bead up on contact and roll off before it saturates the nylon and hampers breathability.
A two-ply top is lighter and less expensive than a laminate top, but one disadvantage is the inside coating lays directly against the skin, sometimes creating a clammy, cool feel. A three-layer laminate is essentially a nylon sandwich with a permeable membrane in the middle. These fabrics are also coated with a DWR. The clear advantage of the laminate is the interior lining, which feels better against the skin and contributes to the top's durability.
It also tends to slide more freely over an underlayer. All the spray tops we tested delivered on their waterproofness and breathability-as they should straight out of the box-but it's not completely fair to compare the two fabrics side-by-side, especially considering the cost difference, so we grouped them accordingly and looked at basic, but important details.
Neck seal and closure: Many people don't like pullovers to begin with, and if you're one of these people, you'll want a wide neck opening, which also allows you to open up the neck seal for quick ventilation, when you're sailing downwind.
The closure system should obviously provide a tight seal. In our sampling, five of seven tops had offset closures, which are better than front closures, because the fabric doesn't bunch up under your chin. Waistband and closure: The waistband is as critical as, if not more important than the neck seal. For dinghy sailors, it's the most likely point of water entry. Five of seven tops have smooth-sided neoprene waistbands, which is an absolute must.
The grip of the smooth neoprene provides a better seal, and it prevents the jacket from riding up when you bend over or lean sideways. The wider the band is, the better. Pockets: Chest pockets are ideally accessible from the side, for access when wearing a PFD, and they should drain. An extra arm pocket is a bonus. It has a rip-stop nylon outer face, and on the scale it's the second lightest of the group, which, according our tester, was a plus.Gill KB1 Keelboat Racer Smock - Expert Review
The offset neck opening is wide. A small Velcro tab on the closure was sufficient, but a larger one would accommodate a better range of neck sizes. The waistband is 2 inches wide, and has the requisite smooth-side for grip. The entire outside face of the front waistband panel accepts the Velcro tabs, allowing for an excellent range of adjustment.

Junior sizes: J08, J10, J Transit time will vary based on products being ordered.Smocks and spray tops are the dinghy sailor's foul weather solution. The sailing smock is a top that is designed to keep water off the user during some of the roughest sailing conditions on a dinghy. In sailing, keeping dry through all splashes, waves and rain is key to the competitor's performance and comfort in any sailing outing.
The design of sailing smocks and spray tops lack the full front zipper, which means it also takes out the issues that arise as the zipper starts to wear out, such as a locked up zip, corrosion or even water leak through the zip. The advantage once the neck and wrist enclosures of a sailing smock are sealed is that the spray top creates a water proof layer that protect the core of any sailor form the spray encountered when encountering either waves or spray off of the bow.
