MUSTO AND GORE-TEX
A POWERFUL PARTNERSHIP


In the early 1990s we teamed up with W.L. Gore to create a breathable and waterproof fabric tough enough to endure the brutal conditions of ocean sailing. Together we created an extremely durable GORE-TEX Pro membrane, which forms the core of our famous HPX range, the world’s number one ocean sailing apparel.

Over 20 years later, our partnership with GORE-TEX has proved as durable and strong as the products we have created. Like-minded innovators, we rigorously test our products in the lab and out in the real world, exposing them to some of the harshest conditions on Earth.

Because our shared mission is to provide you with kit that won’t ever let you down, no matter how extreme your adventure gets.

HPX

In 1994 Musto launched the HPX – the world’s most iconic offshore sailing apparel. Trusted by the world’s best offshore sailors, the HPX is the go-to kit when competing in hardcore races like the Volvo Ocean Race and the Vendée Globe. The HPX is also worn by every participant of the Clipper Round The World Race.

HIGHLAND JACKET

Musto’s famous Highland Jacket was the first shooting jacket in the world to incorporate GORE-TEX performance fabric. Just like the HPX, the Highland Jacket was ‘ocean engineered’, undergoing relentless testing and exposure to extreme offshore conditions before it went to market.

LPX

Musto’s LPX range is revolutionising inshore racing apparel. Constructed from high-performance GORE-TEX laminate, it provides heavy duty protection yet remains ultra-lightweight and breathable. In fact, it’s the lightest, most athletic inshore racing kit on the sailing market today.

Launched with 3-layer GORE-TEX in 1998, Musto’s MPX range took the sailing world by storm. As a more versatile and lightweight alternative to the HPX, the MPX is the perfect outer shell layer for all round sailors.
