Musto Testing

All Musto fabrics are tested and rated for waterproofness after a minimum of 5 wash cycles. These tests ensure that the garments are storm proof even after they have been worn and washed several times.

The Hydrostatic Waterhead Test

The hydrostatic waterhead test helps to determine how waterproof a garment is. A long tube is placed over a stretched section of fabric and then filled with water until water begins to leak through over a 24 hour period. The height of the water column is the hydrostatic waterhead measurement (mm). The higher the measurement the more waterproof the garment is.

The industry minimum for a waterproof garment is 1500mm.

The Oiled Canvas outer is naturally water repellent and offers many benefits over the more commonly known waxed cotton outer.

Oil Coated Cotton Canvas

Musto favour oil coated canvas over wax coated for a variety of reasons. An oil coated canvas is hard wearing and naturally water resistant, making it ideal for use on equestrian and country jackets that are subjected to tough use. Oil fabric has previously been used in motorbike clothing as it is so durable.

Oil coated canvas does not stain, does not absorb water which can make clothing heavy and cold against the skin, and oil coated canvas does not smell once wet.
