Yachting is an exclusive sport that can require fairly exclusive apparel. Besides the fashion aspect, there are a few essential clothing items for yachting. One of them is the "sail pant." These look similar to fisherman's pants, but are much more streamlined and have more intricate design aspects. For example, many sail pants are made from state-of-the-art fabrics like TP1. The pants are fully-lined for adequate warmth and have waterproofed seams. Better versions even have Velcro closures at the ankles and seat patches. Women can find their own versions that offer a zipped drop seat with back and front adjusters for a customized fit.
