Inspired by the New Defender, the Above and Beyond Collection from Musto clothing is a collection of men's and women's performance clothing and technical equipment which incorporates 50 years of Musto heritage in world-leading performance clothing.
"The New Land Rover Defender is pushing the boundaries of automotive design, and we took this an inspiration to work with Musto to create our most advanced, technical and capable performance collection yet. Our ambition was to launch a specialist range of clothing and equipment that united the world-class capabilities of the Defender with our customers' thirst for adventure."
Joe Sinclair, Jaguar Land Rover Director of Branded Goods and Licensing
Innovations in the collection include the Welded Thermo jacket with RECCO integrated reflective antenna to help rescue teams locate you in difficult terrain. The jacket also features PrimaLoft Aerogel-lined pockets that help keep mobile phones charged for longer.
The Rodinia Hybrid jacket has YKK Quickburst zip technology to transform it into a gilet in seconds. It also features PrimaLoft Black Eco insulation - a lightweight alternative to down layers that doesn't compromise warmth, comfort or flexibility.
The collection also includes other accessories including tough flasks and bottles, a pen engineered to go to extremes and a unique activity belt with an ANSI COBRA buckle and ultra-robust webbing with a 6,000kg tensile strength.
