Crugear Decoration Review: Vinyl Heat Transfer

Here’s a secret high-speed sailing tip from Katie Burns: Boats go faster when the whole crew is wearing matching outfits.* It’s true!** 

When your program is looking at customized sailing team gear, it’s important to know what works best for your technical apparel.  For your foulies and spray gear, Vinyl Heat Transfer is going to be your best bet. 

Since these items are waterproof/water-resistant and block other elements like wind and chill, you’re looking for a decoration process that won’t interfere with their capabilities as outerwear.

Vinyl is heat-applied in such a way that it doesn't take away from the performance of your gear. Staying dry is the key reason you want this gear in the first place, and we definitely want to maintain that function.

Vinyl is also a great option for custom gear because it looks great! It looks professional, neat, and smooth – it really catches the eye. If you want your logo on a waterproof jacket, you want to use the vinyl process. 

Another quality to point out is that vinyl is long-lasting. It’s durable and will last as long as the garment does. You’re not going to tear it or peel it off over time - it’s stuck better than glue on the garment and going nowhere … well, nowhere but the race course and maybe even a win because you and your crew look so awesome.

Essentially, if you want customized waterproof team gear, you’re looking for heat-applied vinyl from Crügear. It’s our best offering for outerwear, and your team will look great!
