ICAST 2015 New Product Release: FG2 Tournament Jacket and Trousers

Gill has a 40 year history of developing superior ultra-technical clothing for the global marine and sailing industry. A unique collaboration has been established between some of the best fishing Pros and Gill’s experienced in-house product development team with a simple mission in mind: to produce the best foul weather gear available in the fishing market. The design foundation is based on three Gill guiding light principles:
2. Keep the Angler comfortable
1. Keep the Angler dry

Our fabrics are crafted to exceed the basic waterproof test standard by 10 times plus. Not only that, we artificially age each material, and abrade and humidity test them to the point of destruction. After all, if the fabric fails, the garment fails. Every Gill foul weather garment is backed by a limited lifetime guarantee.

Our unique fabric ranking system enables you to find the perfect blend of style, functionality and performance when selecting between the product families. All fabrics are ranked by this system to be waterproof, durable and breath- able. It pays to invest in the best technical fishing gear so that you can make the most of your time on the water.
Gill understands what is required on the water. We have 40 years experience of keeping boaters dry and secure in some of the most extreme conditions on the planet. Our rigorous in-house testing program helps us to choose the best blend of fabrics for the demands of each activity.

3. Provide the highest possible level of performance

The new Gill Tournament (FG2) suit is a serious technical foul weather gear garment developed for both professional and avid tournament an- glers. The FG2 design addresses key challenges faced by anglers.

Existing rain jacket hoods do not stay in place while facing high winds or when running a boat at speed. To solve this core problem, the Gill R&D team worked with top pros to make a revolutionary new design that we call the Vortex Hood.

Air flow is streamed around the hood through a dedicated channel and mesh lined collar, and is expelled through external collar vents. This reduces pressure variants behind the head, force on the head and neck, making it perfect for use at high speeds.

The Vortex hood also features a high cut thermal collar with a cushioned face guard, a two-way volume adjustment for a secure fit, and improved room for more comfort over base layers.

Gill designers did not stop at the hood. The FG2 Tournament rain suit offers key features not currently available in other suits.

FG2 Tournament Features:
Comfort – Soft, flexible and lightweight Gill 3 DotTM fabric construction. Articulated arms and legs give freedom of movement when casting, landing fish, and running the boat. Fleece lined hand warmer pockets and collar prevent chafing and offer warmth when needed.

Performance – Revolutionary Vortex hood design keeps hood on at speed. High visibility prismatic reflective patches are used throughout for safety and visibility at night. Reinforcement patches on critical wear areas at elbows and knees add to durability.

Dry – Gill 3 DotTM, 2 layer waterproof breathable fabric with high durability.
All seams are fully taped and heat-sealed. Retractable inner and outer wrist cuff seals and 2-way YKK zippers with double storm flaps keep water out.
