Accumulating experience since 1975, this brand has always been at the forefront of technical apparel innovations. Created specifically for anglers and fishermen, the Gill Fishing range has been engineered to keep users comfortable, dry, and, most importantly, safe in any weather conditions.
Why choose Gill among other brands? More than 45 years of expertise in marine foul weather gear has allowed Gill to create a unique technical fishing range for freshwater and saltwater fishing. They have closely examined every stage of production to identify all aspects that need improvement and now have an extremely optimized manufacturing process.
Knowing firsthand what fishermen need from their apparel, Gill has provided its clothing line with a detailed layering system. The base layer is designed to remove moisture away from the skin, keeping the wearer warm and dry after bursts of activity. It includes long sleeves, shirts, and thermal leggings. The middle layer is designed to be worn over a base layer and is designed to provide thermal insulation. This layer is also highly breathable to assist the movement of the moisture to the outer level. It includes zip tops, hoodies, and hybrid jackets. The outer level, being the one that contacts with the elements, is made to withstand even the toughest conditions. Gill jackets are both water- and windproof to ensure that no weather may stand in your way.
Gill is always very thoughtful about the materials, that’s why all fabrics are rated according to 3 properties
This characteristic is measured with the help of a Hydrostatic Head which shows how tall a column of water the fabric can withstand before water starts to seep through. With the industry minimum standard being 1500mm HH, Gill has gone above and beyond to provide their apparel with 5,000 to 20,000mm HH, ensuring the protection against the harshest conditions. Even if it's raining cats and dogs, Gill rain gear will keep you warm and dry.
This property shows many grams of water vapor can pass through the fabric. Gill understands the importance of letting the perspirations escape during active use and thus makes its clothes very breathable.
The ability to resist damaging effects. Gill tests their apparel against harsh surfaces and salt corrosion to ensure that metal pieces won’t rust prematurely. All Gill gear can boast high abrasion resistance and thus are sure to serve you long and faithfully.
Being the fishing apparel brand, Gill cares deeply about the pollution of oceans, rivers, beaches, and coastlines and thus is aimed at reaching the highest degree of sustainability possible. They are constantly looking for new ways to remove plastic from the production process and replace it with degradable materials. Gill already has fabrics featuring recycled plastics which use polyester fibers from plastic bottles.
Gill is a distinguished fishing apparel producer, who cares about its customers and tries to minimize the impact it has on the environment. Warming underwear, fishing pants, drysuits, bib pants, and jackets, as well as fishing boots and gloves - everything that a fisherman needs, Gill can offer.
