When you’re a sailor, windward is one of the first words you learn on the water. For the uninitiated, it refers to the side of the boat facing the wind. And for their latest capsule, The Windward Collection, the team at Wellen drew inspiration from long, rewarding days on deck facing gusts head-on. Designed to shield you without weighing you down, the classic water-resistant jackets fought wind and spray when we tested them in Morro Bay on our buddy James Barkman’s new boat. Whether you’re going out to sea or just looking for a transitional layer for unpredictable weather, this collection will set you on the right course.
