Ping Collection, golf’s leading specialist clothing manufacturer, has launched an extensive range of high-performance clothing in preparation for the winter season.

The range – considered Ping’s best performing winter collection – includes a mix of waterproofs, polo-shirts, base-layers, trousers and knitwear all specifically engineered for colder weather.

The autumn/winter 2012 men’s, women’s and junior collections are all centred around three innovative layering systems: Hydro Pro Dynamics for waterproofing, Thermal Dynamics for warmth and Dry Fibre Dynamics for comfort.

As well as improved functional elements, Ping has also made strides on the aesthetics front, with clothing ranging from traditional-looking garments to more contemporary designs.

Fiona Reilly, Ping Collection’s Senior Designer, said: “When we went to the drawing table for the autumn/winter 2012 range, we wanted to focus on creating a stylish, contemporary range built around forward-thinking garment technology.

“At Ping Collection, we’re committed to following the philosophy of our hardware brand, and we have echoed the innovation and technological advancement found across the Ping range in our clothing.”

The men’s collection includes flagship garments such as the Response waterproof suit – 100% waterproof and breathable with four-way stretch – and the Conway trouser, teflon coated for water and stain resistance.

The women’s collection features a new colour story, entitled Time to Play, and includes the Moondance jacket, which possesses Ping Collection’s lightweight, low noise and weather protective characteristics.

The vibrant junior collection utilises standout, range-defining colours, and includes every garment necessary, from bright polo-shirts to base-layers.
