Gill OS2 Jacket and Trousers
In A Nutshell: By far the least bulky of the coats and pants, the OS2 was made for offshore sailors who need mobility and want to be impervious to spray and rain. It’s the most casual of the jackets, though not as warm by itself.
Our Experience: Warmth in this case is all about smart layering, which is why we also sprung for the i4 fleece jacket. We needed it and the OS2 at 54 degrees. The best features of the OS2 are the thick collar (so high it warmed our earlobes), full-fleece pockets for hand warmth (others have only partial fleece) and adjustable inner and outer wrist cuffs for a tight seal. Bonus points for the hood that stows inside the collar.
Bottom Line: $279 (OS2 jacket), $199 (OS2 trousers), $95 (i4), gillna.com
