Under Armour (NYSE: UA) introduces the next generation in golf rainwear with the launch of the first 3-Layer Full-Stretch Gore-Tex rain suit.

Heralding a new era in Golf Rainwear technology, Under Armour, the brand built from their relentless pursuit of innovation, and Gore-Tex, the world’s most trusted waterproofing technology, have developed the most advanced rain suit in golf.

This has been achieved through two key design features found in both the UA Gore-Tex Tips Jacket and UA Gore-Tex Tips Pant:

  • 3-layer bonded fabric delivering a durable, smooth outside and a soft, brushed interior, keeping the garment 100% waterproof but incredibly breathable.
  • 10% stretch fabrication applied across the whole suit, giving golfers 25% more stretch than other Gore-Tex rainwear for golf.

The UA Gore-Tex Tips Pant, designed to fit like a regular trouser, also features a soft waistband for a comfortable fit, hip adjusters, secure side & back pockets, a working fly and 12 inch leg zips for increased breathability.

On testing the suit, Under Armour ambassador and world number one golfer, Jordan Spieth, said: “Under Armour are constantly pushing the boundaries in what’s achievable in golf apparel to help make athletes better. The new Gore-Tex range is the most advanced waterproofing technology I’ve ever seen in golf and is sure to give me an edge over the competition.”

The UA Gore-Tex Jacket is available with an RRP of £250 and also comes in a ½ Zip version (RRP £230) in three colour options, the UA Gore-Tex Tips Pant is available for RRP £215.
