The Musto gear hasn't been much better either since they were sold out a few years ago.

I've had a minor failure of my HPX boots, but besides that they've proven way more durable for me. Been considering getting Zhik next because of all the hype though.

Its the sizing that seems to have changed a lot, and a lot of zip failures

Maybe the service level in the US will be bettered by this - hope so as it right now it is far below what it used to be and lags other brands; which is sad for the best gear available

I have been using Musto since 1983 when I went to work for Horizon Sails in South Norwalk, CT..  I have tried other brands along the way and find myself returning to Musto. They have never failed me and now that I am back in the Philippines I still get great online service and have even returned item despite ordering the wrong size in exchange for the right size. Personally, I love the product, and I have never been let down by the staff at Musto.

One less player in the market is usually not a good thing for the costumers (us).

Musto have been a sponsor and supplier to the Whitbread/VOR for a trillion years. However Zhik's product line and quality is now starting to leave the traditional suppliers behind. It is no coincidence their gear has now appeared on Dongfeng and AkzoNobel for the current VOR edition, even though Musto remains a key race sponsor.
