The 2015 FootJoy Autumn/Winter Performance Apparel Collection has been revealed, with rain shirts and fleece jackets among the new releases

The line-up includes the FootJoy DryJoys Select rain jacket (£295) and rain trousers (£200), which are the most technologically-advanced waterproof items the brand has ever released.

They offer 25,000mm waterproof protection to keep you dry in the worst of downpours, but are still lightweight items designed for maximum breathability and movement on the course.

As well as the modern fabrics, other features include Laser Cut pockets and FootJoy's Xtreme DWR finish that enhances durability.

The DryJoys Tour XP (jacket £200, rain shirt £185 and trousers £165) and HydroLite suits work nicely with the DryJoys Select, with each waterproof outer layer item coming in new patterns and colourways, as seen in the picture below.

Another new addition to the collection is the StaDry Collar (seen below), which is taller at the back to prevent rain from getting inside, but still shaped so that it doesn't interfere with your comfort.

The FootJoy Hybrid Jacket and Vest are also carried over into the 2015 FootJoy Autumn/Winter collection, with a distinctive quilted design intended to keep you warm both on and off the course.

The FootJoy Thermal Fleece Jacket (£120) is another new item, featuring fleece-insulated panels ideally placed to increase warmth. Stretch shoulder inserts prevent restricted movement and a DWR finish prevents light rain from gathering.

If you're after more of a mid-layer garment, you can try out the Performance Wind Shell Mid-Layer (£90) with its DWR finish a new addition to the mid-layer category. It has the feel of a knit garment, but the functionality of a wind-resistant woven item.

Other additions include the Berkeley and Jupiter Collection Performance Shirts (£44-£55), with the Berkeley range coming in five styles - violet, white, grey and lime, and the Jupiter collection coming in red, blue, navy and white.

FootJoy's ProDry Performance Thermal Base Layer Mock (£40) will also help you maintain body temperature and comes in grey, red, cobalt, white, black and blue, while the ProDry Performance Seamless Base Layer (£55) has body-mapping technology to guarantee breathability and comes in black, grey and white.

The Essential collection rounds up the range, and includes a selection of Performance Shirts in Stretch Pique and Stretch Lisle, Merino and Lambswool Mid-Layers, with more options in the FootJoy Chill-Out pullover. FootJoy Athletic, Slim Fit and WRT Xtreme styles of trousers will also give you plenty of choice when completing your look.

The 2015 Autumn/Winter Performance Apparel Collection will be on sale from September 1st. For more information, visit www.FootJoy.co.uk .
