FootJoy has launched its most technologically-advanced waterproof garments with the introduction of a premium DryJoys Select® jacket and trousers for ultimate performance in wet and wintry conditions.
Featuring highly functional fabrics that elevate the Mark of a Player brand’s offering for the Autumn/Winter period, the new DryJoys Select rain suit is constructed from hi-tech Japanese material that offers 25,000 waterproof protection (WP), as well as a lightweight design that makes it the ultimate Outer Layer option for serious golfers. Both the jacket and trousers boast a moisture permeability (MP) rating of 25,000g/sqm, which allows golfers to remain extremely cool and breathable, whilst being protected from heavy rainfall.
As the top-end waterproof garments in the new Autumn/Winter Performance Apparel Collection, the 3-layer-construction DryJoys Select jacket (£295) and trousers (£200) incorporate a number of features that have gone through extensive testing to prove enhanced performance in the most challenging conditions. These include Bonded Seams, Laser Cut Pockets, FJ’s Xtreme DWR finish and YKK Aquaguard® Vision® Waterproof zippers for additional protection from rainfall.
A patent-pending StaDry Collar, which FJ designers have created after seeking feedback at all levels of the game, offers another performance benefit. The collar has been shaped and heightened to ensure it does not interfere with the golfer’s swing, whilst also preventing the rain from entering the garment.
“The DryJoys Select garments have been specifically designed for the serious golfer who wants the very best in performance, style and comfort,” said Richard Fryer, Sales & Marketing Director for FootJoy. “The R&D team has worked tirelessly on a design that keeps golfers completely dry during heavy downpours, but also allows them to remain cool and breathable when combined with other Mid and Base layer garments.”
The new DryJoys Select jacket can be combined perfectly with Mid layer garments from the latest FootJoy Autumn/Winter range, like the new Performance Wind Shell Mid-Layer top, Berkeley and Jupiter Collection Performance Shirts, plus with the brand’s popular ProDry Performance Base Layers.
The DryJoys jacket comes in Black and is available in sizes S-XXL, while the trousers also feature in a traditional Black with waist sizes S-XXL on offer.
