AFTER MORE THAN 50,000 nautical miles of testing and refinement, Zhik’s new OFS800 offshore range delivers breathability without compromising durability, waterproofing or new protective features.

OFS800 uses eVent membrane technology widely used by military and fire-fighting forces. Millions of microscopic pores built into the eVent membrane instantly begin venting water vapour molecules (perspiration) that build up during activity.

For ocean sailing Zhik engineered the composite material for increased durability and protection from chemicals, while still enabling rapid moisture vapour transfer.

Zhik collaborated with Team Akzonobel and the Volvo Ocean Race winners Dongfeng Race Team to develop the OFS800 range, recently tested by the world’s best sailors in recent Ocean Race Europe.

The Direct Diffusion membrane is a ‘dry system’ meaning it will keep you dry and comfortable.

The OFS800 offshore range comprises an Offshore Jacket, Offshore Smock, Latex (dry) Smock and co-ordinating Salopettes.
