Con­tains com­fort: The Equisyn­ergy 3-Layer Sys­tem

Musto’s Eques­trian Col­lec­tion has its roots in the pi­o­neer­ing sail­ing wear de­vel­oped to counter icy waters and sav­age gales. The same tech­nol­ogy now keeps rid­ers pro­tected in the sad­dle

MUSTO’S 3-LAYER SYS­TEM, first de­vel­oped in 1979, was an incredible feat of in­no­va­tion that be­came a main­stay of the ath­letic in­dus­try. Once, sailors would wear thick knits to keep warm at sea, but th­ese re­tained wa­ter, be­came heavy and cold and re­stricted move­ment. Fol­low­ing fur­ther de­vel­op­ment and some re­fine­ment, plus ex­ten­sive testing to en­sure they met the spe­cific pres­sures of the coun­try en­vi­ron­ment, Musto in­tro­duced its Equisyn­ergy 3-Layer Sys­tem in 2006. It works on the same premise as the com­pany’s classic 3-Layer Sys­tem, but with gar­ments specif­i­cally geared to­wards per­for­mance in the sad­dle.

The best tech­ni­cal brands

Us­ing Musto’s ground­break­ing Equisyn­ergy Sys­tem, you’ll be able to achieve com­plete com­fort and the per­for­mance that comes with it. It’s this in­sight into the ben­e­fits and ap­pli­ca­tions of fabric tech­nolo­gies that en­sure Musto only ever part­ners with the best tech­ni­cal fabric brands around, such as Pri­maLoft® and GORE-TEX®. Orig­i­nally de­signed for the US mil­i­tary, Pri­maLoft® in­su­la­tion is per­ma­nently wa­ter-re­sis­tant. It re­tains its in­su­lat­ing, light­weight prop­er­ties for warmth and com­fort even when wet — and as syn­thetic in­su­la­tion, is the clos­est equiv­a­lent to goose down. Fast-dry­ing, with un­matched breatha­bil­ity, it of­fers ven­ti­la­tion in the most chal­leng­ing cli­mates. Highly com­press­ible de­signs make th­ese gar­ments easy to stow away. GORE-TEX® fabric sup­plies the ul­ti­mate in weather pro­tec­tion. Durable, light­weight, wa­ter­proof, wind­proof and supremely breath­able, this tech­nol­ogy lets you stay out­doors for longer. A GORE-TEX® fabric mem­brane is sand­wiched be­tween the outer shell fabric and an in­ner liner. Mi­cro­scopic pores cov­er­ing the mem­brane are 20,000 times smaller than a wa­ter droplet, but 700 times larger than a wa­ter vapour mol­e­cule. This makes it im­per­me­able to mois­ture, yet breath­able, so mois­ture from skin es­capes eas­ily. Musto is fa­nat­i­cal about de­tail, from the place­ment of a zip to the de­gree of a con­tour seam. It’s this fas­tid­i­ous at­ten­tion to the smaller things that lead to a gar­ment’s ex­cep­tional over­all per­for­mance. The Equisyn­ergy sys­tem is this, per­for­ma­tive col­lab­o­ra­tion from the base layer up, set­ting the foun­da­tions for rider com­fort that truly ex­ceeds ex­pec­ta­tions.
