Living in the North West of England where pounding precipitation is a regular year round occurrence it’s perhaps little wonder that we love our technical sailing jackets so much round here. Despite the fact that I can’t think of a single person with any experience of splicing or hoisting up mainbraces I do know that if Noah turned up in Piccadilly gardens with a massive ark then there’d be no shortage of suitably clad landlubbers there to help out with deck duties. North Sails is one of those very brands we’re so fond of who do make jackets that you genuinely could go out yachting in despite our preference for keeping them well away from the sea spray, unless of course that’s the name of a chippy. This season’s collection is packed with the kind of cutting edge technology, innovation and modernity that makes up North Sails DNA whether you want to put it to the test out on the open seas or deep down in the city.
