Mizuno’s AW19 apparel collection has been engineered and tailored to look stylish while meeting the needs of the dedicated off-season golfer head-on via a series of ingenious performance fabric technologies. From Mizuno’s revolutionary heat-generating Breath Thermo yarn to Tech Shield, Move Tech and Techfill, this new collection is unashamedly technical to help golfers tackle the worst of the winter weather without affecting their game.
Mizuno, founded in Osaka, Japan, in 1906, has long held an enviable reputation not only for its golf clubs and forged irons, but also for some of golf’s most technologically advanced performance apparel, with the new AW19 collection pushing the technical side of golf apparel to new heights.
Breath Thermo once again features prominently, a revolutionary fabric that captures escaping body vapour to generate heat, which in turn returns warmth to the body. It was originally developed by Mizuno's fabric engineers for use in extreme winter sports. The new Breath Thermo Polo, available in Deep Navy, Light Grey and Black, is a winter-weight, classic short-sleeved polo with Mizuno’s famous runbird logo on both chest and back. This year, the fabric has an enhanced feel compared to previous collections.
The Breath Thermo BioGear Base Layer is a soft, warm, stretchable base layer that boasts a compression fit to reduce muscle fatigue and allow you to layer up when required for maximum comfort and efficient temperature regulation out on the fairways. The Breath Thermo 1/4 Zip top forms the perfect second layer, with its lightweight, soft-touch fabric and Move Tech technology allowing full freedom of movement in the golf swing.
Mizuno Move Tech trousers, available in Deep Navy, Cas Charcoal and Black, feature a slightly heavier fabric to last season and are ideal on cold, dry days golfing days, with their vertical stretch panels allowing a full range of golfing movements in a modified, tailored fit thanks to their blend of cotton, polyester and spandex.
Tech Shield, a knitted material with both weather-proofing and stretch properties, is another key Mizuno performance technology designed to meet the needs of the determined off-season golfer. AW19’s water-repellent Tech Shield jacket, which also features Mizuno Move Tech to guarantee full freedom of movement, has a new look, with Mizuno’s advanced product development team creating a garment that has greater potential for general lifestyle wear while still delivering all the performance a golfer could want. The Tech Shield jacket will be available in Black and Deep Navy.
An eye-catching newcomer for AW19 is the 3 in1 Jacket, another garment to feature both Mizuno Move Tech and Tech Shield fabric technologies. This is a brand new concept from the advanced product development team, whose brief was to create one garment that can be worn three different ways. The fruit of their endeavour is the new 3 in1, which can be worn as jacket and gilet together, gilet on its own or jacket on its own according to the demands of the weather conditions and temperature. It will be available in Black and Deep Navy.
The high-performance Nexlite Rain Jacket and Rain Pants offer the ultimate in wet-weather protection, providing an incredible 20,000mm of waterproofing with 25,000g of breathability. This allows them to be classed as “highly waterproof for heavy rain” while remaining soft to the touch and incredibly lightweight for this level of waterproofness. The jacket seamlessly doubles up as a wind top, with its detachable sleeves making it even more versatile. The trousers allow adjustable leg lengths of up to 4 inches in every waist size.
Completing the AW19 collection is a range of Breath Thermo Beanies and Bobble Hats, which will be available in a selection of colours both classic and more adventurous, and a Breath Thermo Neckwarmer available in Charcoal or Black.
Mizuno’s new AW19 apparel collection, available from September 2019, offers golfers all the colour, style and high-tech performance they need to play their best over the off-season thanks to Mizuno’s key fabric technologies of Breath Thermo, Move Tech, Tech Shield and Techfill.
