With the 2018 collection we provide gear for all types of weather conditions, but what should you pick when the circumstances are constantly changing? Learn more about the best products in our monthly Tech Update!
We're happy to inform you that we kept both our Element Collection, including the special knit for female sailors and our Coastal Collection (junior) the way it was. The only thing we added in 2018 is a touch of the new Magic Marine color pool blue. Like most of the items in our collection, also the Element Collection has been developed together with our brand ambassadors and team riders. Our foul weather gear items first got tested and approved by the Team Heiner Talents but are now loved by everyone in the family!

ABOUT OUR FUL WEATHER GEAR COLLECTION
The Magic Marine product development team worked incredibly hard to better understand the actual features, fit, materials and construction that contribute to 'perfect' foul weather gear. Amongst other features, a mid height micro fleece lined neck and micro fleece lined pockets are constructed into the panel layout to limit seams and a chunky YKK zipper with zipper covers is integrated in the jacket. We really want to make sure we did everything to offer big boat and keel boat sailors, but also coaches, photographers and shore crew more comfort during sailing events and training camps and to protect them from the elements.

ONE TEAM ONE DREAM
At Magic Marine we strongly believe in long term relation ships and growing together as a family while working on various projects. The mind set of the Team Heiner Talents perfectly matches these believes which creates synergy between both brands.
"As team we have big ambitions, last year we announced to enter the Volvo Ocean Race edition 2020 with a team that probably is going to be the youngest ever. We can make this dream happen because of the partners we have on our side. In 2016 we started to work together with Magic Marine who where then developing the new Element Collection."
"As part of the program we were given the chance to help them develop and improve this innovative full weather gear collection. A brand that dares to be different is a perfect match with the ambitions that we have. We are very happy to be part of the Magic Marine family, together we can make things happen!"
WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT OUR COLLECTION
Jesús Renedo and Pedro Martínez are the founders of Sailing Energy and have been our partners for many years now. No matter the weather, they go out to face the elements to get the best shots of our sailors. We're happy to provide them gear to keep them warm and dry.
Jesús Renedo, photographer Sailing Energy:
"We spend many hours at sea chasing sailors. We need to focus on our job and having the best weather gear is key. If you feel warm and comfortable you can totally focus on your job. With the Magic Marine full weather suits we are always ready to go, no matter how rough or wet it is!"
Martha Rocha is one of the coaches of our team riders Marine Grael and Kahena Kunze from Brazil, who are back in their 49er FX together after Martine finished the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18 with Team Akzo Nobel. She loves the female touch which makes it simply perfect for her.
Martha Rocha, coach of Magic Marine team riders Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze:
"Do you wanna know my opinion about my wonderful suit? I feel very comfortable using the Element Collection. It’s simply perfect for me. It keeps me warm and dry, it is soft so I can move without any problem and has a security pocket where I particularly like to put my mobile. The hood for me has a perfect size and shape because with the adjustments you can make it is possible to use it. It keeps the water out of my face but I still can see everything around me. Besides I think it’s very beautiful!"

FULL WEATHER GEAR FOR KIDS
Because we really believe in family business, we also have special full weather items for young sailors. The jacket has been designed to be comfortable and protective with a soft microfleece lined collar, a breathable mesh lining, a double-ended front zipper, adjustable wrist seals, and large pockets on the front for essential items. It has been designed in bright colours so that it is easier to be seen on the water and in line with the Junior range so that it can be worn with the Coast trousers for a complete sailing outfit.
ELEMENT JACKET AND SALOPETTE
The Element Sailing Jacket and Salopette have been developed using MTECH2.0 performance technology to create a windproof, waterproof and breathable shell, with a sportive contoured shape for the best fit.
The jacket has been designed with durability in mind, with strong Cordura© panels at the elbows/forearms, and on the bottom of the back. It also features a covered chunky YKK double-ended front zipper and micro fleece lined high neck for maximum ease of use and comfort.
The salopette has strong Cordura© panels at the knees/shins and seat panel, a large stretch area at the shoulders/upper back to allow for maximum movement and a wicking lining to maintain comfort and breathability even on the hardest of days. The ankle cuff closure features a wide, adjustable PU Tricot panel to seal comfortably both against your skin and over a boot.
