Aquafleece on boat


Since 2002 we've been on a continual journey of evolution - starting with the infamous Rooster Classic Aquafleece® Top,

THE garment of choice for top sailors all over the world.

A typical 'spray top' will keep off the wind, whereas the
Aquafleece® does this in comfort and style with a design that was BORN for dinghy sailing. The fact that there are still original production garments seen on the water today is testament to the quality and durability built into the DNA of every Aquafleece® product that leaves our facility here in the UK.



Aquafleece WAIST2 2017



Aquafleece® – keeping you warm for the last 15 years! Our development of the Aquafleece® material revolutionised the standard spray top.


It has to be said that the most effective layer in your kit bag for keeping the cold at bay would have to be your ‘spray top.’ Water takes heat from your body 27 times faster than air, therefore keeping the water away from your skin is the primary line of defense.


This layer need not be cumbersome and uncomfortable, which is why Rooster has invested thousands of hours in the development, testing and refinement of our world renowned Aquafleece® range.

With an ever growing range of tops and accessories, we have compiled this handy little comparison chart to illustrate the features and benefits for each style in the range:

For those of us who love the soft agility of the Aquafleece® as a top layer but would like the added security of a semi dry construction we have developed the Rooster Pro Aquafleece®.


Great for Windsurfing, SUP, Kayak & Jet Ski Fishing and general boating. 

Aquafleece Wrist 2017

With its heavier fleece, waterproof taped seams and adjustable neoprene waist and wrist closures, this garment offers the ultimate protection in the harshest of climates.


"Having said that, it would have been hard to see me sailing in anything else last Summer.

I used the pre-production sample throughout August as it gave me the option of wearing less layers underneath and still stay warm and flexible.

Perhaps that´s why Nick Thompson has not returned my other sample yet?"

Reviewer: David Hansen (Cheltenham, Gloucestershire)

I am very pleased with my Pro Aquafleece. It is very well made, warm and comfortable, and looks good. Being black, when the sun comes out, you get even warmer. Now summer is hear I still wear it but just with a polypro underneath.

I use my pro Aquafleece for jetski fishing (thats me in the photo above!) and I love it. I spend some serious hours on the ski in all sorts of conditions and have been underwater a few times and dont get wet. It is very comfortable to wear for hours on end in sun and rain. Thoroughly recommend it for use on a jetski

I recently completed and won the Two Handed Around New Zealand Yacht Race, Mike Pascoe suggested I use this one word Awesome! I didn't take it off for seven days,and it was the "bees knees" off the Southern Alps......Thanks Mike :-)
Dianne Goodall
Fantastic product and even better service! We are in Adelaide and when I told the team at NZ Sailing that I needed the jacket for our Opti Frostbite Regatta in 10 days they had it in the post within 2 hours of ordering with very reasonable postage. Boys can't wait to try out their new jackets this weekend and Mum's happy that they will be warm and dry out on the water! Thanks NZ Sailing :-)

I had a standard aquafleece and then used this pro type a found it much warmer and the Velcro straps a great feature.
Wore my pro aqua fleece in the 2012 Coastal Classic. Very wet race won our division on line was warm and dry all the way. The kids have aqua fleeces for sailing in the Optis as well. Best bit of gear for dinghy sailing
