Make Every Day Playable with Performance Golf Apparel from FJ

(RELEASE) — FootJoy invites golfers to Make Every Day Playable this Fall with performance outerwear that provides ultimate protection for all weather conditions.

FJ offers the most complete rainwear lineup in golf, from the most insulated and waterproof jackets for harsh weather, to the most breathable and lightweight waterproof protection in warm, wet conditions.

All-new this year is the DryJoys Select LS, the lightest, most breathable and most waterproof garment ever produced by FootJoy, setting a new standard in rainwear. Validated by the best players in the world under the most extreme conditions, this is the rain jacket for the player who requires the ultimate in all-weather protection.

Specially engineered from a top-in-technology Japanese fabrication, DryJoys Select LS features a 2.5 Layer Construction that reduces weight while still providing full mobility.  This premium jacket offers thin, lightweight stretch that doesn’t impede your golf swing, with a soft, quiet and flexible feel.

This fabric is extremely lightweight, weighing less than a golf shirt, with the versatility to perform in even the most extreme weather conditions.

DryJoys Select LS is unique in the ability to offer 100% waterproof protection, while also delivering incredible breathability.

“This product is all about the fabric, with a simple design and a primary focus on performance that went through three years of testing and validation,” said PJ Skurla, Senior Apparel Designer. “It is the ultimate waterproof layering shell that is so light, it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything at all.”

The new DryJoys Select LS has been validated on Tour by players including Webb Simpson.

“I played through some of the most challenging weather conditions of my career at this year’s Open Championship,” said Webb Simpson.  “Blustery winds and rain coming from every direction, but the new Select LS delivered the protection I needed and kept me focused on my next shot.”

DryJoys Select LS is available now, featuring three full-zip rain jackets, two half-zip rain shirts and rain pants.

As the leader in performance outerwear, FJ offers a full range of raingear for any player and any climate.

FJ HydroKnit is the most versatile outerwear piece from FJ that offers the feel of a mid-layer and the function of a rain jacket.

Designed specifically with the golfer in mind, FJ HydroKnit uses a high-quality 3-Layer Bonded Knit Construction that is incredibly lightweight and comfortable in a variety of conditions. In addition, the remarkable 4-way stretch material allows full freedom of motion during the golf swing.

FJ HydroKnit uses a durable water repellent (or DWR) face coating in conjunction with our breathable fabrics to force water to bead up, preventing the outer layer from becoming saturated, while also keeping the player comfortable.  The 3-Layer Bonded Face Lamination eliminates any water going through the garment and is 100% wind proof, keeping you comfortable in a variety of weather conditions.

“We wanted to engineer the highest quality rain knit that would earn the distinctive FJ stamp and this fabric accomplishes that goal,” said Whitney Trimble, Senior Director, FootJoy Apparel. “The story around this piece is its versatility. It has the soft feel and great stretch of our popular mid-layers, with the all-weather performance of a rain jacket.”

“When I first picked it up I thought it was a mid-layer,” said Rafa Cabrera Bello.  “The stretch is incredible which allows me the full range of motion that I need, and it’s waterproof.”

FJ HydroKnit pullover is available now in four colors.

Rounding out the most comprehensive rain jacket lineup in golf is the popular DryJoys Tour LTS and FJ HydroLite.  Both jackets are constructed from materials that deliver 100% waterproof, breathable protection, with DryJoys Tour LTS performing best in cool, rainy conditions, and FJ HydroLite the perfect, lightweight summer rain jacket.

With four distinct performance options, FJ is committed to Making Every Day Playable.

It’s never too cold to grip a golf club with FJ all-weather golf gloves. Extend your season with a pair of WinterSof gloves, designed to maintain your proper grip regardless of frigid temperatures.  And don’t forget a pair of Rain-Grip golf gloves, the World’s #1 Rain Glove, essential for any golf bag for rainy day play.
