Wind, rain, storms! all not so amusing thoughts to a boater. It is however inevitable that our activities as boaters will expose us to the elements, and for that reason having a good rain and wind jacket is important. In this post, I review what I believe is the best all around wind and rain jacket for boaters; the Helly Hansen Seven J.

One of the main reasons I like the Helly Hansen Seven J jacket is because it is comfortable to wear on those days where you get some sun, then some rain and then some sun again. The jacket dries quickly which make it ideal for boating.
The jacket is also light weight, waterproof, windproof, breathable, well made and inexpensive. These are all good features to have in wind/rain jacket. The Seven J jacket itself is comfortable to wear and the material used is durable. The jacket is also very well reviewed by consumers.
Final thoughts: I am sure that it could be argued that there are jackets out there that are much more wind proof, or much more rain proof, I don’t doubt that. My decision to choose these Helly Hansen jackets is based on both usability and price. They last long, and the price is right. What do you think?
