FootJoy has announced details of its 2013 Autumn/Winter Performance Golf Apparel Collection for both male and female golfers.

FootJoy's new range - comprised of the latest technology and available in numerous seasonal colour pallets - maintains high levels of comfort, style and performance.

The Autumn/Winter Collection features high-tech waterproof rainwear, base layers, fashion pullovers, essential shirts and performance trousers, and is spearheaded by the DryJoy's Tour XP, the FJ HydroLite and the FJ Softshell lines.

The DryJoys Tour XP is a 100% waterproof, breathable collection for golfers taking on the worst playing conditions.

The three-layer bonded fabric construction is instrumental in reducing weight and increasing mobility, while an FJ four-way stretch shell and 20,000m waterproof barrier offer outstanding protection against the elements.

These design features are also complemented by an extra-breathable waterproof laminate barrier, super soft brushed tricot liner and waterproof seam-sealed zippers.

The DryJoys Tour XP range is made up of the Rain Jacket (£200), Rain Shirt (£175) and Rain Trousers (£155) - all available in a range of different colour schemes with a three-year waterproof warranty.

The FJ HydroLite collection is designed for warmer, wetter conditions, and is constructed from FootJoy's lightest-ever rainwear material to offer weight-reducing technology without sacrificing waterproof protection.

The line is comprised of the HydroLite Jacket (£130), Hydrolite half-zip Rain Shirt (£125), HydroLite Short Sleeve Rain Shirt (£115) and HyrdoLite Trousers (£90). As with the DryJoys Tour XP, the range comes with a three-year waterproof warranty and a mix of design and colour options.

The FJ Perfomance Softshell Jacket and Vest are designed for cool conditions or light rain, and come with a warm, water resistant outer layer, brushed tricot lining, a breathable laminate barrier and a range of other technological benefits.

The FJ Softshell Jacket comes in Black/Charcoal, Charcoal/Black/Orange, Stone/Black and Navy/Grey and retails at £100.

The FJ Softshell Vest, available in Black, Charcoal/Black/Orange and Navy/Grey, has a RRP of £85.

Other stand-out garments in the FootJoy Autumn/Winter 2013 range include the Lambswool and Merino Wool pullovers, Essential Stretch Pique shirts and a full complement of Performance and Classic trousers.

"This high-performance, seasonal collection is the result of years of intensive testing and research, representing what I believe is the most visually-striking and golf-performance infused outwear range on the market," said Russell Lawes, FootJoy's European Marketing Manager.

"Our mission is to make golf enjoyable at all levels of the game, and this cutting-edge collection ensures every day is both comfortable and playable."

The Autumn/Winter 2013 collection also sees the expansion of FJ's female clothing offering, and features high-performance fabrics, innovative technologies and modern colours.

The range includes FJ HydroLite Rain Jacket Trousers - packed full of waterproof technology - FJ Softshell jackets and vests, FJ Performance wind shirts, a women's base layer, wool knitwear and ProDry Stretch Pique shirts.
