Musto layering system

The 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
A thermal or polyester base layer worn next to the skin to help transfer (wick) sweat away from your body as fast as possible.

The Middle Layer
The main job for the mid-layer is to hold warm dry, insulating air inside the clothing system and close to the body. It must also continue the transmission of water vapour through the clothing system as started by the base layer.

Musto Breathable Inshore jacketThe Outer Layer
The third layer is completely waterproof to the outside elements. It must also stop the wind whipping away the precious warm, dry air that is held inside. But the third layer must also deal with the moisture that is transmitted outwards by the inner two layers. This is where breathable waterproof fabrics come in.

Breathable clothing:
Musto breathable fabrics have a hydrophilic coating. They breath by absorbing moisture from the warm, high humidity zone around your body and chemically driving it through your clothing.

The fabrics use an abrasion resistant outer shell to which the hydrophilic coating is applied. Taped seams are then added to make them fully waterproof.
