The FootJoy DryJoys Select waterproof suit is said to be the brand's most advanced to date, constructed from a hi-tech material for ultimate performance in wet conditions

Forming part of FootJoy's Autumn/Winter 2015 line, the premium FootJoy DryJoys Select waterproof suit is set to offer the ultimate performance in wet and wintry conditions.

The new DryJoys Select rain suit is constructed from hi-tech Japanese material that offers 25,000 waterproof protection (WP), as well as a lightweight design that makes it a great Outer Layer option for serious golfers. Both the jacket and trousers boast a high moisture permeability rating, which allows golfers to remain cool and breathable, whilst being protected from heavy rainfall.

 

FootJoy DryJoys Select Jacket

The 3-layer-construction DryJoys Select jacket (£295) and trousers (£200) incorporate a number of features that have gone through extensive testing to perform in the most challenging conditions. These include Bonded Seams, Laser Cut Pockets, FJ’s Xtreme DWR finish and YKK Aquaguard Vision Waterproof zippers for additional protection from rainfall.

A patent-pending StaDry Collar, which FJ designers have created after seeking feedback at all levels of the game, offers another performance benefit. The collar has been shaped and heightened to ensure it does not interfere with the golfer’s swing, whilst also preventing the rain from entering the garment.

“The DryJoys Select garments have been specifically designed for the serious golfer who wants the very best in performance, style and comfort,” said Richard Fryer, Sales & Marketing Director for FootJoy. “The R&D team has worked tirelessly on a design that keeps golfers completely dry during heavy downpours, but also allows them to remain cool and breathable when combined with other Mid and Base layer garments.”

The trousers also feature YKK Aquaguard Waterproof Hand Pocket & Leg Zippers, an Adjustable Gripper Waistband and Reach Through Hand Pockets.

The DryJoys jacket comes in Black and is available in sizes S-XXL, while the trousers also feature in a traditional Black with waist sizes of S-XXL.
