Sailing Trousers / Salopettes / Highfits

Just how comfortable you are when boating inshore, coastal or offshore can depend very much on the sailing trousers or salopettes that you wear. Of all the sailing clothes that you choose, it's your trousers, salopettes or hi-fits that take the most wear and will impact your mobility the most if you haven't made the best choice. Fortunately we have a great range of options for men, women and kids from leading brands including Henri Lloyd, Helly Hansen, Gill, Musto, Zhik Slam and Magic Marine. Which style you go for is partly personal choice. The bib and brace tailoring of salopettes, or hi-fits, is a preference for many as you get extra protection well above the waistband and the whole garment won't fall down your body as you move about. Waterproof trousers and pants on the other hand are generally more convenient to get on and off - and the lighter weight examples can double as useful shorewear too. Whichever way you go, do have a good browse throuygh our product descriptions for information on useful features like pockets, wear patches and access panels on your sailing trousers and don't forget we're here to advise if you aren't sure about the best options for your dinghy sailing or yachting activity.
