As I'm looking out on another foul November day for golf, it's perhaps appropriate to advise Golfmagic visitors about two additional lines to the clothing collection of ProQuip, the leading innovator of lightweight golf weatherwear and preferred supplier to the European Ryder Cup team.
You will remember ProQuip as the company which trumped its American rivals at The Celtic Manor by forcing the American team to buy up its stock of rainwear, when it's own preferred brand famously suffered a 'waterproof malfunction.'
The company is this week introducing lined, water-repellent knitwear - the Merino Lined Zip-Neck and classic Lambswool Lined Zip Neck, both priced at £79 - surely an ideal Christmas gift for the all-weather golfer.
Both products feature a lightweight lining used n the ProQuip’s Ultralite Tour rain suit, that's breathable for both warmth and comfort and super-soft for quietness during the swing. They are pre-treated with a water-repellent finish that results in light rain beading off the surface and machine-washable and 'tumble drier friendly.'
The Merino Zip Neck is available in black, navy and grey marl, while the lambswool v-neck comes in black, navy, tartan green, boreaux and grey mix. Sizes are S-XXL. Further information from www.proquipgolf.com or call 0131 555 7920.
