To design the range, Musto took inspiration from the New Defender itself, incorporating specific details from the vehicle to strengthen the collaboration and achieve the collection’s unique and distinctive style. The Above & Beyond Collection utilises Musto fabrics, tested in the world’s most extreme conditions, such as Gore-Tex which can withstand even the harshest elements.

I’m really pleased to see these two iconic British brands collaborating together on this new range of highly technical clothing designed for people who enjoy adventure.
