Sun Mountain has a new top-of-the-line collection of golf rain gear for 2017 called Elite. The Elite Rain Jacket and Pants use waterproof fabric technology called 37.5 that has a two-year guarantee and offers up to 3X more breathability than competitors plus the stretch golfers need. 37.5 fabric dries much faster than most waterproof fabrics, too, diminishing wet cling. Elite is in golf shops and online now at $299.99 for the full-zip jacket and $259.99 for the pants.
“We are continually searching for technologies to improve the function of our outerwear,” explained Sun Mountain Vice President of Outerwear, Mark Heydon. “The new Elite Rain Jacket and Pants are made with the ultimate fabric that has a waterproof rating as high as any rain jacket we’ve ever offered, while being extremely breathable, and stretching like our RainFlex.”
Elite’s three-layer construction with 37.5 Technology keeps you dry inside and out by maintaining an ideal core temperature.
The body strives to maintain a core temperature of 37.5° C, and people are most comfortable when the microclimate next to the skin has a relative humidity of 37.5%. Not surprisingly, this ideal 37.5 comfort zone is also the ideal performance zone.
With 37.5 Technology, patented active particles in the fabric capture and remove perspiration vapor, using body heat to accelerate the process. The hotter a person becomes, the stronger the force removing perspiration vapor.
The bottom line is that 37.5 Technology helps maintain the zone of comfort and performance by breathing 50% to 300% better than competitors while maintaining waterproof protection. 37.5 fabric also dries up to five times faster than competitors, diminishing wet cling. And 37.5 Technology is made with naturally derived materials, so won’t irritate the skin, and the active particles are permanently embedded in the fabric, so will never degrade.
The Elite Rain Jacket offers significant four-way stretch and features high-quality, two-way YKK waterproof zipper, adjustable cuffs and two hand warmer pockets. Available in sizes M-XXL, with S and XXXL available in black.
