The longtime favorite piece of gear in our kits here at APS, the Musto MPX Gore-Tex Race Lite Salopettes are the ultimate in functionality, durability, and versatility. These salopettes are the best option for waterproof trousers that are breathable, comfortable to wear for long periods of time, and abrasion-resistant against the deck of a sailboat. The MPX Race Salopettes are designed for keelboat racing, but they can be worn for many types of sailing where you need to stay dry in an active environment.
These salopettes are made with a 3-layer GORE-Tex® Pro fabric that delivers a truly waterproof garment while simultaneously offering breathability to let moisture out. These two functions work seamlessly together to keep sailors as dry and comfortable as possible while facing the elements. The high chest of the waterproof fabric offers greater protection as well, keeping the core dry without the need for a jacket in light spray on a warm day.
The salopette shoulders are designed with a stretchy fabric to allow for greater freedom of movement and a higher comfort level than the traditional suspenders style bibs, which is an added bonus after a long day (or night) on the water. The back waist adjustment allows for a better fit, and the underarm elastic provides even more comfort.
Cordura® patches at the knees and seat provide tough abrasion resistance, and the wide neoprene adjustable ankle cuffs close tightly to keep the water out.
