Gill Refines Their Outerwear Catalog


Date: 7/11/19
Location: Orlando, FL
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: Gill
Reviewer: Cal

Gill, founded in 1975 by British Sailor, Nick Gill, is a leading manufacturer in technical marine apparel. Having set their sights on the bass fishing world roughly a decade ago, the company is responsible for innovations like the Vortex Hood. This year, the company didn't have anything quite as revolutionary, but certainly a few items you might want to add to your radar.


Introducing Gill's new FG100 Jacket


FG100 Jacket: The new Gill FG100 Jacket features the afore mentioned, adjustable Vortex Hood System and 3-Layers of material to provide waterproof warmth while out in the elements. It comes complete with a host of attachment loops, reflective accents, etc., and will be available in two colors. MSRP on the new FG100 Jacket is $349.


Introducing the FG120 Expedition Shorts


FG120 Expedition Shorts: From a new jacket for inclement weather to something for sunnier, warmer days, the FG120 Expedition Short from Gill is made with a patented 4-Way stretch fabric that features UV50+ protection. It has zippered side pockets, a reinforced pliers pocket, angled back pockets for easier access, and a kill cord switch loop. MSRP on the Expedition Shorts is $69.95.


Introducing Gill's Rock Softshell Jacket

Rock Softshell Jacket: Most intriguing to me is the company's new Rock Softshell jacket built with a material that is both hard as a rock, yet soft. Its made with a 2-layer stretch softshell fabric and a durable outer face and hi-loft thermal lining with 7% spandex for added flexibility while casting. The jacket also features Velcro adjustable cuff, and an adjustable hem and hood so you can tailor your comfort. The Gill Rock Soft-shell Jacket will be available in sizes XS to XXL and in one color, Ash, for an MSRP of $175.

The Rock Softshell Jacket has a host of built in features

Whether it be the sun or rain, if there's one thing Gill knows how to do it's to build a product that can protect us from the elements while keeping us comfortable in the process. Hopefully we get an opportunity to take a closer, more in-depth look at their products in 2019.
