Under Armour's Gore-Tex Tips waterproof jacket and trousers are the first ever 3-Layer Full-Stretch Gore-Tex rain suit.
Jordan Spieth, Under Armour's brand ambassador and reigning Fed Ex Cup champion, is certainly impressed with the suit and the company's desire to innovate:
Under Armour are constantly pushing the boundaries in what’s achievable in golf apparel to help make athletes better. The new Gore-Tex range is the most advanced waterproofing technology I’ve ever seen in golf and is sure to give me an edge over the competition.
The full-stretch nature of the waterproofs has been made possible thanks to a close collaboration between Under Armour and Gore-Tex that produced two key design features of the new gear.
Firstly, a 3-layer bonded fabric that delivers a durable, smooth outer shell, and a brushed interior that means the UA Tips garments are 100% waterproof and very breathable.
Secondly they have applied 10% stretch fabrication across the whole suit giving players 25% more stretch than in any previous Gore-Tex rainwear manufactured for golf.
The UA Gore-Tex Tips jacket includes secure hand and chest pockets, adjustable cuffs and a Bungee adjuster at the hem to keep out the cold. The full-zip jacket comes in Black and Stealth Grey and has an RRP of £250. It is also available as a half-zip jacket in Cobalt Blue that has all the same features and a RRP of £230.
The UA Gore-Tex Tips trousers are designed to fit like a regular trouser and feature a soft waistband for a comfortable fit, hip adjusters, secure side and back pockets, a working fly and 12 inch leg zips to offer extra breathability. The trousers have an RRP of £215.
