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.
