Great jacket, dry at last!

I use this jacket for both inshore and coastal sailing, including racing. The waterproofing is just the best I have ever had, no little leaks and the hood, face flap combo works well.

I think it was good value, I happy to be truly dry, not "mostly" dry. The breathability is great, I was a skeptic but am now a convert.

Musto MPX Review

I have been accused by my colleagues in past reviews of being a bit too fond of using the ‘c’ word when it comes to reviewing kit. By that I mean cost. There have been mutterings in our office that I might be a little bit tight and more obsessed with the price than the actual product.

When asked to do a long term test on a MUSTO MPX jacket and some trousers, I found myself on the horns of a dilemma. With a price tag of £655 they have a value that is considerably more than my current car and, even more terrifying, about 1/5th of what I actually paid for my 29ft yacht which is ‘luxurious’ enough for me to live aboard.

I have to say this probably says a lot more about the quality of my car/ boat than anything else and I admit I was pretty thrilled to be using something that didn’t threaten to break as soon as I looked at it. This was particularly piquant given that my previous oilskins (circa 1997) leaked persistently...

So you need a good jacket and Foul Weather gear for Offshore Sailing. For this you are going to want the best features and have the best gear to keep you warm and dry.

The Musto range of Foul Weather gear is about as good as it gets for total comfort and protection. You will find their gear being used in the harshest conditions, such as the Volvo Round the World Race. Musto gear can be ideal for both Racers & Cruisers.

There are two main features to look for if you want the best foul weather gear and price isn't necessarily one...
