GEAR FINDS FOR FALL

Cruising World - - Under Way -

1.RHEOS wye­creeks • $50 • rheosgear.com

Look­ing for qual­ity shades that won’t break the bank? All Rheos’ styles of uni­sex sun­glasses cost just $50. These po­lar­ized glasses are made for life on the wa­ter — the su­per-light­weight frames float, and the poly­car­bon­ate lenses fea­ture anti-fog, anti-scratch and anti-fin­ger­print coat­ings.

2. SPOT x • $250 • find­mespot.com

The Spot X is a satel­lite com­mu­ni­ca­tions de­vice that lets you send two-way mes­sages to any cell­phone num­ber or email ad­dress from any­where Spot has cov­er­age. The Spot X can also send check-in mes­sages, post to so­cial me­dia and send track­ing up­dates to a per­son­al­ized map web­site. The illuminated key­board and back­lit dis­play make it easy to use.

3. ANTAL speedy­lock • $108 to $146 • antal.it

Tack­ing or jib­ing is not the time to be fight­ing with a stub­born winch han­dle. If your old han­dle is dif­fi­cult to lock in place or re­move, you’ll ap­pre­ci­ate the Speedy­lock han­dle. The light­weight alu­minum han­dle has a rub­ber coat­ing for good grip, a large lock-re­lease but­ton and is avail­able with a sin­gle, dou­ble or ball grip.

4. GILL hy­brid down jacket • $169 • gill­ma­rine.com

Down is one of na­ture’s best in­su­la­tors, but down jack­ets don’t usu­ally do well in a wet en­vi­ron­ment. The Gill Hy­brid down jacket solves that prob­lem and stays cozy on and off the wa­ter. The outer fab­ric is wind­proof and wa­ter­re­pel­lent, and the 650-fill down in the torso is wa­ter-re­pel­lent as well. Low-pro­file sleeves and stretch pan­els en­sure a full range of mo­tion.
