The Jacket utilises the best in 4 way stretch fabric technology for maximum freedom and comfort for the active rider no matter how intense the competition gets.
The Prestige Jacket is packet with innovative technologies that allow the rider to perform to their best ability without having to worry about restriction or comfort. ActiveSeam™ Technology allows for increased flexibility, durability and reduced seam bulk. Windstopper® fabric offers excellent wind resistance, whilst the water resistant membrane means you stay dry and comfortable when caught in those showers when out and about and the DWR coating encourages water to bead and run off the surface of the jacket.
In addition to technology the Prestige Jacket offers a fantastic tailored fit and features subtle detail that really add to the elegance of the jacket. The rear vents and side pockets have a concealed zip for a smooth finish and the Musto branded shank buttons add the finishing touch. The Prestige Jacket is available in Red, Navy and Black.

Musto Technologies explained
Musto is well known in the equestrian industry for producing some of the most technically advanced riding wear. Musto clothing offers fantastic protection from the weather without compromising on style or fit ensuring you can look and perform at your best both in and out of the saddle no matter what the weather conditions.
Originating from the sailing industry in 1980, Musto has quickly become the go to brand for many outdoor sports. Musto successfully combined high performance fabrics with traditional styles to become the leaders in British country sporting wear.
Durable Water Repellent (DWR) fabrics have been coated with a polymer which encourages water to bead and run off the surface. DWR fabrics have a reduced drying time, do not get heavy when wet, reduce condensation so there’s less moisture on the skin and help to prevent garments “wetting out”. DWR fabrics offer great breathability whilst keeping you warm and dry making them ideal for equestrian clothing.
BR2 is a Musto waterproof rating for fabric that has a significantly higher waterproof rating than the standard industry rating. BR2 has a hydrostatic waterhead rating of 10,000mm and up to 15,000mm compared to the industry standard of 1,500mm. BR2 delivers complete protection in torrential rain over a prolonged period of time so there’s no excuse not to ride in the rain! BR2 fabrics are also incredibly breathable, lightweight and windproof.
ActiveSeam™ is an innovative new technology that delivers increased comfort and flexibility allowing riders to perform at their best. ActiveSeam™ is 30% stronger and stretches 100% further than traditional flatlock stitching and allows fabrics to butt smoothly against each other rather than the traditional overlay. The ActiveSeam™ technology allows for a low profile seam that lies flush on the skin and does not bunch or rub. ActiveSeam™ has 2 layers of stitching; the top thread covers the second thread when the seam is relaxed and the second thread is exposed in a pop of contrasting colour when the seam is flexed by movement.
A new generation of Musto
The new Musto competition wear is a fantastic addition to the ever developing Musto range and we are proud to stock the range here at Naylors. The Musto show jackets, breeches and shirt are packed with innovative features and technologies that seek to complement and enhance the riders performance rather than inhibiting.
