Lightness and performance don't have to compromise protection and durability.


Transocean has been engineered from Henri Lloyd’s latest waterproof, windproof and highly breathable TP3 Japanese coated fabric technology for offshore sailing. The Transocean range launched this month in Australia and is already ahead of the game as it utilises the most innovative design and newest technology around offshore sailing. This combination has led to a tough yet easy to wear offshore kit that best of all is incredibly affordable. The type of kit you want to keep on wearing whatever the conditions and not strip off at the first opportunity.

Its lightness and flexibility belies the true durability and waterproofness of this multi-dimensional product. Firstly the face fabric is created from a tough yet light nylon yarn, that is densely woven into a smooth tight face fabric to deliver a flexible but durable outer. Secondly a state of the art bi-component hydrophilic and micro-porous coating is applied that allows perspiration in the form of vapour and condensation to be transported to the outside and evaporate. Then a final layer of anti-abrasion 3d microbeads are added to protect the coating and create a dry touch lining for comfort. In addition a saltwater abrasion resistant DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish helps shed water maintaining performance and comfort for the wearer.

The Transocean range looks super sleek on and performs above and beyond the price – value for money is high in this new range by international offshore sailing experts Henri Lloyd.
