The Elite Offshore Range from Henri-Lloyd's new 2024 Yachting and Boating designs is now available in-store and online.

Created using experience spanning seven decades and engineered from the latest ultra-reliable and durable fabrics, the Elite Offshore Range is designed to meet the demands of sailing professionals and passionate enthusiasts.

Henri-Lloyd's revolutionary 3-layer DRI PRO fabric is used to create the range in both striking black and powerful orange colourways. 100% waterproof, windproof and exceptionally breathable, the range is comprised of the Elite jacket and Elite hi-fit trousers, catering for men and women. In addition, there is the unisex Elite dry top, ideally suited for the harshest and wettest conditions, such as on the foredeck.

The Elite jacket is unlined, quick drying and refreshingly lightweight, making it comfortable to wear in all conditions. It features Cordura reinforcement on the tail drop for maximum durability and protection. The high collar has a fleece neck lining for all round protection, warmth and comfort, and the Optivision hood offers superior peripheral vision, whilst still providing full protection from the elements. The central storm flap ensures no wind or rain will drive through the zip area and the cuffs have both an internal adjustable Dartex cuff, and external adjustable cuff for added protection from wind and water.

The 7-pocket design offers ample storage, with hand warmer pockets, cargo and accessory pockets. Each pocket is edged with fluorescent taping, increasing crew visibility and aiding quick access into pockets even on the darkest nights. Additional safety features for providing 360-degree crew visibility, reflective Union Jack patches with photoluminescent backing are placed on the front centre chest, rear of collar and back of the arms, in exactly the right position to be seen if waving for assistance from the water.

The Elite Hi-Fit trousers are designed for performance and protection, making them the perfect choice for offshore sailing in all conditions. Key features include heavyweight, non-corrosive Vislon AquaGuard centre zip, with back waist adjusters to ensure a customized fit, along with adjustable ankle straps. Designed to last, there are large Cordura knee patches and Cordura lining on the hem at the bottom of the leg, to protect against scuff damage. Designed for high active movement as well as comfort for long passages, the 3D cushioned mesh shoulder straps offer increased comfort and are breathable, maintaining the integrity of a superior breathable layering system. There are chest hand warmer pockets with Rentex mesh lining and holes to ensure water drainage and handy leg cargo pockets feature envelope closures and drainage holes, with a handy internal pocket designed with brushed dot-mesh to prevent water absorption. For women, there is also a drop-seat bottom for added convenience and ease of use.

The Elite Dry Top is classically the ultimate top for those placed in the wettest conditions, such as foredeck or keelboat and even dinghy sailing where combining being dry with rapid and extensive movement is critical. The Dry Top is engineered from medical tape, using Flex-Strap to ensure a comfortable fit. The raglan sleeve design enables easily arm movements and reduces the number of seams to ensure complete waterproof integrity, and the latex collar and cuffs prevent cold water ingress. The neoprene waist with hook and loop adjustment tabs ensure a snug fit around the waist, whilst the inner lining features slide-glide technology enabling the Elite Dry Top to be easily put on and taken off. There is a large kangaroo front pocket with envelope closure and drainage hole outlined with fluorescent strip to aid visibility in low light conditions. There is a zipped arm pocket ideal for radio/EPIRB storage, and an internal pocket with brushed dot mesh which prevents water absorption. With safety in mind, reflective Union Jack patches with photoluminescent backing ensure good crew visibility.

The Elite Dry Top retails at £575, with the Elite Jacket costing £750 and Elite Hi-Fit Trousers also available at £575. The entire range can be seen in chandleries and retailers throughout the UK, as well as in Henri-Lloyd stores in Dartmouth, Salcombe, Lymington and Cowes and online at
