New Mizuno S/S 2016 Apparel Collection

The brand has used a triple layer concept in the new S/S 16 range

Mizuno's S/S 16 range has been crafted using a triple layering concept to ensure ultra comfort for the golfer and is in stores across Europe now.

Mizuno has launched its spring/summer 2016 apparel collection as worn by two-time European Tour winner Chris Wood.

It is designed around a triple layering concept. Those three layers are:

The inner layer which uses the brand's Drylite™ technology to maintain your body’s microclimate, a mid layer which uses Warmalite™technology to increase thermal insulation and the outer layer that is engineered with the Windlite™feature which has been created to protect golfers from the elements.

Chris Wood won the 2015 Lyoness Open in Austria last year.

The inner layer comprises a range of eight polo shirts in varying styles, as well as trousers and shorts in either plain colours or fineline check styles.

All the polo shirts incorporate Mizuno’s Drylite™ technology to help move moisture away from the body, to maintain a comfortable and dry ‘microclimate’ to enhance performance.

The polyester performance shirts are: the Origami Polo which contrasting colour panels on the sleeves and back, the X-Tint Argyle Polo which sports an Argyle design across the chest and the classic plain polo which is woven from a mini-piquet fabric.

These three shirts all retail at £60.

Mizuno s/s 16 apparel

The Piquet Stripe Polo, at £70, is tailored from 100% double-mercerised cotton, and features a single contrasting stripe across the chest and a classic button-down collar.

The Warmalite™ 1/4 zip top is a polyester flat-knit garment offering a contemporary look with contrast sleeves, and a subtle origami print on the back of the neck.

It uses a heat-capturing layer to enhance the garment’s thermal insulation properties by recycling body heat while still allowing the body to breathe - this retails at £100.

Mizuno S/S 2016 apparel collection

The outer layer range consists of a featherweight windproof vest and jacket which have both been designed using Mizuno’s Windlite™ technology.

The collection is completed with a range of hats, caps and belts to get the full Mizuno look.

Mizuno are taking their Tour Truck to Silvermere later this month.
