Musto Performance Clothing: The Snug Story – Then and Now
When a design is truly excellent, it endures. This is what every brand aims for and what Musto achieved through the creation of its snug. Launched in 1988, the Snug Blouson became a firm favourite among sailors and riders alike by using cutting-edge technology: fleece. Nothing at the time was as warm, lightweight and breathable as fleece, and Musto’s integration into the blouson’s weatherproof shell was truly groundbreaking.
This fleece was used to make two products, the Snug Blouson and Snug Shirt. During the design process, the team had decided to use self-colour cuff and trims rather than use the combination colour which was around the neck. This made the jacket look more stylish.
Fast forward to today and the Snug Blouson Jacket is still Musto’s most popular product, but the Snug Collection has been diversified, modernised and gradually honed to meet different purposes.
Musto Classic Blouson Jacket
The versatility of this Classic Snug Blouson Jacket is one of the reason it remains a favourite, whether you’re day sailing, riding or in a downpour on a city street. Its re-engineered shell features a warm 240g fleece liner for warmth and comfortable at all times. Its sailing-inspired high collar blocks the wind for added weather protection and the ribbed hem and cuffs enhance the warmth of the piece while creating a tailored fit.
Musto Hooded Snug Blouson Jacket
The Hooded Snug Blouson Jacket features the update of a hood for enhanced wet weather protection, while preserving all the warmth and breathability of the classic. The original snug silhouette has been maintained, but for the new season, its fit has been refined for a more trend-led aesthetic. Featuring Musto’s Arctec fleece lined inner for incredible warmth you’ll soon find indispensable.
