Pack all of your sailing gear into one bag with the Helly Hansen Sport 50-Liter Duffel. It can be carried as a bag or backpack and has storage compartments to keep all your gear organized. This is a great waterproof bag you can bring onboard.

Traveling from the cold winter up north where we barely see the sun this time of year, you might want to put some sunblock on your pasty white skin while out on the water!

Don’t worry about having your phone in your pocket or out on deck while you have The Life Proof phone case! They even make a Life Proof for your iPad.

Sailors Tool come in handy and why not have them all in one. Riggers Knife, Sailing Shackle Key, Ruler, Bottle Opener, and Marlin Spike .

A SailingHubb T-shirt! It makes a great under layer while sailing. Then wear it around the dock to represent your home drinking town with a sailing problem! Be sure to tag us @sailinghubb in your photos to get featured on our Facebook & Instagram pages!

Patagonia Mens Down Sweater Jacket is the perfect jacket for traveling. It will keep you warm for when you need it, but is super "stuff-able" for when things heat up, and fits into its own small pocket.
