    Product feature
      - Dual-layer hydrophilic fabric - >10000 mm of water pressure. - Fully taped seams. - Inner flap - Bottom of the legs adjustable by rip-tab strip. - Tested under a simulated heavy rain shower (450 L/hr/sqm) for 4 hours.
      RET <12: very breathable. To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance, or RET, (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). It is its ability to allow the water vapour produced by the body during exercise to escape.
    3. COMFORT
      - The waist is adjustable using semi-elasticated rip-tabs.
      A large reflective 3M patch on the back intensifies low light sources. The Tribord logos are also reflective.
      - Injected plastic central zip resistant to salt oxidation.
      Close all zips and flaps and remove any parts of the garment that cannot be washed. Also remember to loosen the straps and elastic parts and empty the pockets. Then turn the garment inside out to wash it.
      You can wash your jacket on a synthetic cycle at 30° or 40°C with your usual detergent. Do not use fabric conditioner, which could damage the existing performance of the garment, or bleach. Also take care not to bend your jacket too much when you place it in the washing machine and do not overload your machine. Very important: select a thorough rinse or double rinse to completely remove all detergent residue.
      Drying is a crucial phase in reactivating the water repellent treatment. We recommend that you lay your jacket flat on a clothes rack and leave it out to dry in the open. Caution: never dry your jacket directly on a radiator. Then place it in the tumble dryer on a short synthetics cycle, i.e. 10 to 15 minutes, before turning it back the right way round.
      If, despite this procedure of washing and thorough rinsing followed by gentle drying in a tumble dryer, the drops of water no longer run off the surface of your jacket, we recommend that you "re-waterproof" it using a waterproofing spray or detergent sold in our stores.
    10. Water repellent component:
      The water repellency of your Offshoroa Salopettes is obtained by applying a treatment to its surface. This treatment causes water to slide over the surface without soaking in. This prevents the component from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, breathable, and warm. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime. Our ranges offer products for this purpose or solutions can be found on the care instructions on how to reactivate your salopettes' water repellent treatment
    11. How important is windproofing?
      Protection from the wind is very important, as wind can chill the body significantly whether you are active or at rest. According to the "wind chill" model, which measures how the air temperature feels when factoring in the wind and cold: at a temperature of 5°C combined with winds of 30 km/h, the temperature felt will be 0°C. If the air temperature is 0°C and wind speed is 40 km/h, the temperature felt will be -7°C. Your Offshoroa salopettes help to counter the windchill effect.
    12. What is a waterproof and breathable HYDROPHILIC membrane?
      The membrane works in stages to wick away perspiration. Firstly, the fabric absorbs water vapour until it is saturated. Then, due to the difference in pressure between inside and outside the jacket, the fabric disperses the water vapour outwards. The main advantage of the hydrophilic membrane is that it does not contain pores; consequently, there is no need to constantly rinse the fabric to wash off any salt water crystals. Breathability therefore remains constant over time.

    2. Storage advice
      Store in a dry place, but do not leave your garment on a heat source such as a radiator, as this may damage the breathable membrane or coating.

    • Really good product and good value

      Tim (United Kingdom)

      I've now worn these for about a month in all weathers from calm to F6. I've been dry and comfortable in them.

      Size wise upscale, I'm normally a L and thats what I first had delivered, too small, sent them by back and got an XL almost by return.
    • bought these for dingy sailing

      excellent value for money, would recommend to any one
    • These weren't designed by a man!

      Because the front zip is not double ended you need to undo your lifejacket and then undo the zip on your offshore jacket just so you can get to the front zip on these salopettes to go for a pee.
      For that reason they are no use in an offshore environment and should not be designated Offshore.
      Front zip is not double ended
      Response of the brand
      Dear Alan,

      Thanks for your mail. You are correct, there is only one zip at the front of the Offshoroa salopettes, meaning that you need to undo the the jacket to access the zip for the trousers (and sometimes the lifejacket depending on the model). I will pass your remarks on to the design and production team in France, and let you know their feedback.
      If you are not entirely satisfied with the product please return it to your nearest store or via the online process for a full refund/exchange.
      Apologies for the inconvenience,

    • Good and robust - one design flaw from excellent

      I'm not a sailor, I coach at my local rowing club so need decent wet weather and winter kit because I am likely to spend several hours at a time in a coaching launch in all weathers in a largish natural harbour.

      These work well for that purpose, they are reasonably snug around the torso but loose enough around the areas where flexibility is needed. Only time will tell whether they will go the distance but the general feel is one of good quality.

      There is a design issue around the hem which I would consider a flaw though. The nature of their use involves launching and recovery of the boat, not in deep water (welly depth). The hem is about 2" deep but is attached to the trouser lining rather than a proper hem stitch back onto itself. This effectively creates a waterproof bag effect at the hem which, even in akle-deep water, means that it fills up.

      Minor nuisance rather than significant problem but might be something that the design people will want to look at.
      Comfortable, Robust
      Design of hem makes them a water trap
