24 Boating New Zealand April 2014 newgear Warm blooded ZHIK’S HYDROMERINO THERMALS are made from super-fine merino wool which has natural odour- reducing properties and automatically wicks away moisture from your skin. They are comfortable to wear for days on end, even when wet. So even if you start sweating you’ll stay comfortable without body odour. There is extra length in the body section to avoid a cold patch of lower back or midriff skin. This range works well with the Zfleece jacket, which is cut specifically to be worn as a comfortable mid-layer beneath a windbreaker or smock for added warmth. The full-length zip makes donning and removing the fleece easy, and the extra length built into the sleeves ensures that it doesn’t ride up when you extend your arms. www.zhik.com. chandler y Battery minder VICTRON’S NEW BATTERY monitors provide boaties with practical information to help manage their battery banks and ensure reliable, continuous supply of current.
