Bobby Jones Introduces First Ever Complete Line of Performance Outerwear

XH20 Outerwear Offers Three Categories of Performance: Impact, Dynamic and Velocity

(Atlanta, GA) – Bobby Jones,celebrating the iconic apparel brand’s 25th anniversary in 2014, today unveiled its first-ever complete selection of performance outerwear. The Bobby Jones XH20 Outerwear line offers the same unparalleled attention to detail golfers have come to expect from Bobby Jones, with a new infusion of weather-beating versatility for stylish protection on-and-off the course.

“Mr. Jones played in a time when golfers had to endure severe weather without much protection from the elements at all,” said Andy Bell, President/CEO of Jones Global Sports. “If players were lucky enough to find a reliable rain jacket, they had to sacrifice range of motion and comfort in order to stay dry.  Mr. Jones would be amazed to see today just how far outerwear has come.  The ability to blend comfort, style and protection is a unique advantage to the golfers of this era.  What we’ve done with the XH2O Outerwear collection for Fall 2014 is create garments that we know Mr. Jones would have been proud to wear in a variety of challenging and changing weather conditions like he faced when competing in tournaments known for foul weather like, the Open Championship and British Amateur.”

The Bobby Jones XH20 Outerwear collection offers three different levels of performance.  The first-level, the Impact Collection, features 3 garments, all adept at handling cool, windy light precipitation conditions.  The High Side 1?4 Zip Half Sleeve is constructed of 100% polyester and offers lightweight versatility that is easy to pack in your bag.  The Durable Water Repellancy (DWR) finished fabric is quiet and provides an easy fit for layering.  Utilizing the same DWR finished poly fabric, the Torque 1?4 Zip Vest offers a water-resistant shell, quiet nylon coil zippers and an adjustable elastic draw-cord at the hem for a versatile piece that is easy to provide quick protection in changing weather conditions.  Highlighting the Impact offering is the Bobby Jones XH2O Condor Full-Zip Jacket that is lightweight and packable, with a compact polyester that gives the wearer comfortable and effective water-resistant protection.  The XH2O Outerwear Impact Collection ranges in price from $98.50-$125, and each item is available in Black, Emerald, Navy, Red, Sapphire and White color schemes.

Bobby Jones’ XH20 Dynamic Collection is built on the Double Eagle Pullover.  The Double Eagle Pullover is constructed of 100% polyester and offers a seam-sealed, breathable design that is perfect for layering or for warm-weather outerwear.  The garment offers ultimate versatility in that it is packable, quiet and distraction-free. In addition, the garment’s quick-dry capability and low moisture absorption offer an added level of comfort for wet-weather golf.  The Double Eagle Pullover is available in Black, Navy, Red and Sapphire and is priced at $225 with a 5-year warranty of waterproof protection.

For golfers who desire total protection and ultimate comfort, Bobby Jones XH2O Outerwear offers the Velocity Rain Jacket.  Form meets function in this completely waterproof, breathable, 4-way stretch fabric shell that is lightweight and whisper-quiet.  In addition to total protection, the Velocity Rain Jacket utilizes a combination of stretch inserts to maximize ease-of-movement.  Furthermore, the front and back breathable inserts, upper mesh liner and underarm zippers increase airflow and moisture evaporation keeping the wearer cool and comfortable no matter what the situation.  Offering ultimate versatility, the Velocity Rain Jacket features zip-off sleeves that allow the piece to convert into a warm-weather short-sleeve style garment as temperatures change.  The Bobby Jones XH20 Velocity Rain Jacket is available in Black and Navy and offers complementing pants for head-to-toe protection.  The Velocity Rain Jacket also offers a 5-year warranty on waterproof protection and is priced at $325.
