Helly Hansen was great to work with and we're happy with Aegir Race gear we selected. We have both the Aegir Race Jacket and salopette.
Their waterproof mitt looks interesting compared to JL who makes one for river/basin rowing. This looks much more robust but I would worry about overheating without knowing more about the thickness and breath-ability.
The EP-38 is a top of the line inflatable PFD that is designed to be more comfortable for high activity movements. We will be wearing these life jackets at all times when on deck. Mustang also makes foul weather gear that is used in the Volvo Ocean Race. Great gear, I'm also bringing their gloves along with me for the row.
The Zhik 160 Dinghy boot is my daily foot wear choice for the row. Its flexible, lightweight, has rubber protection in all the wear spots that usually show up (across bridge of foot and at the heel/achilles). The foul weather gear also looks to be top of the line.
Ocean rower; interesting videos
