Gill OS2 vs Henri Lloyd TP2

How do we compare ? Anyone had a change to used both? How do they perform?

Re: Gill OS2 vs Henri Lloyd TP2

The advantage of Gill stuff is it has a lifetime guarantee. I've had 3 pairs of trousers and 1 jacket over the years. Leaks and zip failures the usual problem.

Just send it back and a new one will be returned.

It seems that the longevity of oilskins is getting worse. I used to have a set of Henri-Lloyd Ocean Racer in the 1980s. They did 8 seasons of hard offshore racing before starting to leak. Also, why are oilskins so expensive? You could buy a bespoke tailored suit for the money they are asking.

I've sailed Henry Lloyd for 5 years now. No issues yet.
