Editor’s Choice: OverBoard Pro Sports duffel bag

Judging by today's offerings, duffel bags ain't what they used to be.

Gone are the traditional tartan cylindrical drawstring bags beloved by those spotters lurking outside the bus garage, replaced by a new generation of high performance, high capacity holdalls more akin to what mariners might have once have called a seabag.

For our selection we’ve chosen the Pro-Sports waterproof duffel from bag and case supplier OverBoard.

Available in three sizes – 40, 60 and 90 litres (funny how waterproof bags are measured by how much liquid they can hold…) – OverBoard duffels provide full protection from the elements.

So no matter whether its water, dirt, sand or dust, your belongings should stay safe, dry and clean inside whichever size Pro-Sports bag you choose.

A quick trot around the product reveals a host of attractive features. The Overboard Pro-Sports is made from a hard wearing, tough PVC tarpaulin, and it floats should you drop it in the briny.

That’s due in no small part to its seamless welded construction, which also contributes to its water tightness, in terms of which the bag itself is rated Class 3/IP66, while its weatherproof front zip pocket earns a tick in the Class 2 IP65 box.

What this means is that the Pro-Sports should be able to comfortably handle the British weather and/or a quick submersion.

Dotted around the Overboard Pro-Sports are a number of handy pockets; in addition to the quick access front zip mesh pocket, there are side mesh zip pockets and an a wet/dry pocket inside the bag.

Four D-rings give multiple attachments options, and lugging the thing around is made easy with a choice of a top carry handle or an end haul handle (of which there are two on the large 90-litre bag).

And if hauling is not your thing, simply attach the padded back straps supplied with every bag and turn your duffel into a rucksack.

Or should that be knapsack, or maybe even backpack, in today’s parlance?

Price: £79.99 – £104.99 (inc. VAT)

Editor’s Choice: Zhik INS100 jacket

We're not quite sure how to pronounce the name of this recently-launched Australian jacket without appearing churlish, but what we do know is that the Zhik INS100 is a stylish piece of kit indeed.

The description offered by its makers reads, “the perfect technical lightweight cross-over jacket for life afloat and ashore”, leaving no doubt as to who this garment is aimed – us boaters.

They even promote it with the hashtag ‘Made for Water’. What we particularly like about the Zhik INS100 is that this is no in-yer-face product; it makes its own unique fashion statement quietly, without really trying.

Or could it be that the converse is true – it succeeds precisely because it conceals its street-style, trend-setting light beneath a bushel so well?

The jacket’s clean lines, with no frills and modest branding, might make the casual observer think there’s nothing special going on here.

But take a closer look and you’ll find a host of features to commend it. For example, there’s its construction. The Zhik INS100 is made of Vecta, a fully waterproof, two layer hydrophobic breathable fabric which promises comfort whatever the weather decides to throw at us.

A soft mesh lining maximises air flow, adding further to the comfort, and when the going gets really tough an additional coat of DWR – Durable Water Repellent – is there to turn the jacket into a duck’s back; water just runs off of it.

All seams are fully taped with critical joints further reinforced for durability and personal effects are kept stay safe and dry inside the two external zipped side pockets and a discreet chest pocket.

As a brand, Zhik’s claim to the water runs deep – since its formation in 2003, its range of wetsuits and dinghy gear have become a popular choice among sailors around the globe.

The firm was the Technical Clothing Partner for two teams in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18 and the Official Technical Clothing Supplier to Alex Thomson Racing for the 2020 Vendee Globe Campaign. And with a pedigree like that, the Zhik INS100 surely has to be worth a look.

Price: £129.95 (inc. VAT)
