FootJoy has announced details of its 2014 Autumn/Winter Performance Apparel Collection, featuring additions to both the current men’s and women’s lines.
The new range masters a balance of comfort, style and performance, through a diverse range of winter layering garments that utilise FootJoy’s latest apparel technologies. The high-tech waterproof rainwear garments, DryJoys Tour XP and HydroLite, maintain their position within the 2014 line, and have been re-styled in a range of new colours to reflect current fashion trends.
Other exciting categories include the innovative new FJ Hybrid. Designed to be worn both on and off the course, these jackets and vests feature strategically placed insulation panels and a durable woven shell outer layer for added warmth performance.
The AW14 is comprised of Base Layer, Fashion Pullover, Essential Shirts and Performance Trouser categories, allowing the wearer to compete at their best in all weather conditions.
The DryJoys Tour XP collection delivers 100% waterproof protection for golfers willing to play in the toughest of conditions.
A 3-layer bonded fabric construction reduces weight and improves mobility, whilst the innovative FJ four-way stretch shell with an Xtreme DWR finish and 20,000mm waterproof barrier defends against the elements. An extra-breathable waterproof laminate, super-soft brushed tricot liner and waterproof seam-sealed zippers also enhance performance.
The DryJoys Tour XP range is made up of the Rain Jacket (£200), Rain Shirt (£180) and Rain Trousers (£160) – all available in a new range of different colour schemes with a three-year waterproof warranty.
The versatile FJ HydroLite collection is designed to offer lightweight performance in wet weather, and features a 2.5-layer bonded fabric construction with four-way stretch technology.
The line is comprised of the HydroLite Jacket (£135), Hydrolite half-zip Rain Shirt (£130), HydroLite Short Sleeve Rain Shirt (£120) and HyrdoLite Trousers (£90). As with the DryJoys Tour XP, the range comes with a three-year waterproof warranty and a mix of new colour options.
All new for Autumn/Winter 2014 is the FJ Hybrid line of modern jackets and vests, offering warmth performance in cooler climates. FJ’s DWR finish has been used throughout the range to help shed light rain, whilst stretch knit sleeves provide increased range of motion.
The Hybrid collection consists of the Hybrid Jacket (£105) and the Hybrid Vest (£90), both of which are available in multiple stylish colour options.
Footjoy’s other new standout garments in the AW14 collection include new colour additions to the ProDry Performance Thermal Base Layer, a range of Lambswool and Merino Wool Pullovers, new Fashion & Performance Chill-Out Pullovers, a new Performance Full-Zip Track Jacket, Essential Stretch Pique Shirts, all-new Lifestyle Dress Shirts and a full line of Performance and Classic Trousers.
FJ’s female offering this Autumn/Winter has been improved by a greater offering of performance winter wear, with the FJ HydroLite Rain Jacket representing the most functional women’s rainwear ever produced by FootJoy. Also featured in the line is an attractive Hybrid Jacket, a re-styled Softshell Jacket, Performance Full-zip & Short-Sleeve Wind Shirts, Merino Wool knitwear, ProDry Stretch Pique Shirts and a variety of new Brushed Chill-Out tops.
FootJoy also continues to raise the benchmark in all-round footwear performance, with the introduction of the new FJ Tour Compression Sock. By providing a unique solution for comfort and consistency, the new design places an emphasis on areas of the foot considered important throughout the swing. These specific points feature state-of-the-art fabric and advanced design characteristics in order to ensure stability and general golf course mobility
FJ Performance Golf Apparel has the approval of some of golf’s biggest names, including Ryder Cup star Steve Stricker, European Tour winner Bernd Wiesberger and the young American duo of Peter Uihlein and Brooks Koepka.
