Base Layers

MUSTO were the first to introduce the 3 layer system in the sailing market and it still remains the most effective way to dress when you face any cold, wet and windy outdoor activity.

The 3 Layer System is based on a simple principle - water transmits heat thirty times faster than air, so wet skin gets cold thirty times quicker than dry skin.

The base layer transports moisture away from the skin to keep you dry and comfortable for extended periods. To keep warm in the worst conditions, the appropriate base layer must be worn. For cold to arctic conditions, choose MUSTO Thermals and Extreme Thermals, which absorb less than 0.5% of their weight in water. For cool conditions opt for the MUSTO Active range, which is made from high wicking, quick drying, antibacterial Nilit® Bodyfresh performance fabric, designed to respond to your body to help keep you dry, comfortable and odour free for extended periods of high activity. The Evolution range also consists of a variety of t-shirts and polo shirts that can be worn as base layers.
