WEATHERWEAR specialists ProQuip, referred supplier to the European Ryder Cup team in 2010, is introducing its first ever stretchable rain suit the Tour Flex, which the company says enables golfers to swing freely and athletically, as if they were wearing a lightweight second skin.
The breakthrough technology also features striking modern styling with a slimmer, sports cut in sizes from small to XXXL.
ProQuip claims the two-way stretch fabric, made with a fine plain weave rather than a knit also makes the waterproof suit light, quiet and easy to swing in.
Ryder Cup Captain Colin Montgomerie is working closely with ProQuip on a number of fabrics and designs for the European team suit.
ProQuip's chief designer Richard Head says: “ProQuip has been the leading developer of ultra-lightweight weatherwear fabrics for nearly 30 years and the TourFlex is the best rain suit we have ever produced.
“My vision was to create a lightweight, stretchable fabric that performed like a second skin. You can swing in a TourFlex jacket and hardly know you're wearing it.”
Other features include adjustable cuffs, concealed card/glove pocket, waterproof zips and matching trousers with a total suggested retail price of £250.
Colours for the jacket (£150) are: black/white/red; black/grey/red; grey/black/white; white/black/red; red/black/white; stone/black/red and for the trousers (£100) black.
