ProQuip unveils Tour-Lite - ultra light rain jacket

June 9, 2015

ProQuip Golf, the world's leading innovator of lightweight golf weatherwear, has launched Tour-Lite - the lightest rain jacket in its 34-year history - and the first to be developed using a knitted waterproof outer fabric.

Engineered to be the lightest packable rain jacket for golf, Tour-Lite weighs only 277 grams and can be packed down to an area of 15cms by 12cms, smaller than the average winter golf mitt.

The jacket is constructed from a knitted ultra-lightweight outer fabric that is supremely soft to wear and stretches four ways delivering the highest levels of comfort and freedom of movement.

Russell Brooks, general manager of ProQuip Golf, said: "ProQuip has a history of ground-breaking innovation in golf weatherwear and Tour-Lite is our latest breakthrough. Golfers now demand thinner, softer and lighter clothing with great styling and complete protection against the elements.

We believe that Tour-Lite is the perfect all-year round outer layer for golf and will win over the many golfers who are still reluctant to pull on a waterproof jacket when it rains."

ProQuip Golf was founded in 1981 and is best known for revolutionising the golf waterproofs market by setting new benchmarks for fabrics that are lighter, softer and quieter to play in.

Its innovation has earned it the accolade of being the most played weatherwear brand in Ryder Cup history, having supplied both European and American Ryder Cup Teams for over 31-years.

Tour-Lite - 50% lighter than Ultralite

The new Tour-Lite jacket is 50 per cent lighter than the 2015 version of Ultralite, the company's longest running and best-selling waterproof range.

Innovative features include a handy rear pocket located above the golfer's lower back for storing a glove, scorecard or accessories.

An elasticated waistband and grip strip hem mean the jacket fits snugly at the waist and stays in place for a comfortable athletic fit.

The jacket comes with a stylish colour contrast waterproof zip and zip pockets plus adjustable Velcro cuffs.

Tour-Lite comes with ProQuip's exceptional three year guarantee and delivers all the brand's hallmark benefits of lightness, quietness, softness and playability.

Tour-Lite is jacket only and can be worn with any trouser in the ProQuip range. It comes in two colour ways, Black/True Blue or True Blue/ Black and will be available in store at ProQuip stockists from June at an RRP of £129.
