Sun Mountain’s RainFlex outerwear is lightweight, stretchable, breathable and waterproof. Thanks to the knitting process used to produce RainFlex, the garment stretches 100 percent across the shoulders and diagonally and is comfortable and quiet, moving with no resistance as opposed to most rainwear that is woven nylon with almost zero stretch and is stiff and noisy.
The 2010 RainFlex line includes RainFlex HD with traditional styling and heavy-duty performance as well as RainFlex in full-zip jacket, half-zip pullover, short-sleeve pullover, and pants. The women’s line includes a full-zip jacket and pants. All RainFlex styles come with a two-year waterproof guarantee. Full-suggested retail prices range from $145 for the short-sleeve pullover to $210 for the HD full-zip jacket.
New construction enhancements include locking zipper pulls to keep zippers in place and quiet, tabbed cuffs for quick and easy adjustments for optimal fit, waterproof zippers that are protective and less bulky than traditional storm flaps, and shock cords to maintain a comfortable fit out of the way of your swing.
The Presidents Cup, a team match play competition featuring 24 of the world's top golfers - 12 from the United States and 12 from around the world, excluding Europe - is contested every two years, and has alternated between United States and international venues since 1996. The Presidents Cup was developed to give the world's best non-European players an opportunity to compete in international team match-play competition. The Presidents Cup 2009 will be Oct. 6 through 11 at the Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco, pitting the U.S. Team led by Fred Couples against the International Team captained by Greg Norman.
