The days of wearing a woolly jumper and a turtle neck to play golf in cold weather are long gone – as is the era of corduroy as the trouser of choice for most British and Irish golfers in winter.
Today’s golf clothing is about as high-tech as drivers with adjustable shafts and a choice of lofts and a fade or draw bias.
ProQuip, one of the last remaining specialists in the golf weatherwear niche, has released its first-ever performance base layers for 2013 making it easier to control how hot or cold you are, and most importantly make sure you don’t get a chill from sweat and air that can’t escape from next to the skin.
Here’s what the Scottish company has to say about its new base layer tops, which are suitable for men and women (men’s sizes apply).
“The ProQuip Base 360 top is available in white, navy and black and is designed to function like a second skin, wicking excess moisture away from the body and enabling the golfer’s temperature to regulate itself by allowing air to move through the highly breathable fabric.
The tops have an ergonomic low mock turtle collar and four way stretch properties enabling a snug and comfortable fit. The stretch fabric gently compresses the golfer’s muscles enabling increased blood flow and oxygen circulation so that tired muscles can recover more quickly during a round.
The base layers are quick drying and embroiderable, enabling retailers to personalise the garment with club or corporate cresting. ProQuip operates a fast and reliable club and corporate cresting service.
The base layers are unisex garments, suitable for both men and women, and are sold in men’s standard sizes, small to XXL.”
If you want a vote of confidence about ProQuip products, they are the preferred supplier to the 2014 European Ryder Cup Team and have been outfitting Ryder Cup teams with waterproofs for over 31 years, starting with Jack Nicklaus’ American team in 1983.
