ProQuip has announced the launch of Ultimate HTX, its first rain jacket capable of recycling and transferring body heat for improved performance in cold weather.
Ultimate HTX (Heat Technology Extreme) uses a metallic heat capture lining to retain and reflect body heat for improved flexibility and mobility.
“Ultimate HTX is a breakthrough innovation in golf rainwear and the wider field of self-heating outerwear,” said Russell Brooks, general manager of ProQuip Golf. “The jacket’s ability to retain and recycle body heat means that when it rains, it warms, and fewer layers are needed in cold weather to maintain optimum comfort.”
The tech-first rain jacket (RRP £140) is made from a durable four-way stretch outer fabric. The polyester face fabric flexes and adjusts for freedom of movement during the swing, and is lightweight, breathable and protected by ProQuip’s proprietary three-year waterproof guarantee.
The metallic inner liner is highly breathable, allowing excess heat and moisture to dissipate while retaining and transferring the optimal level of warmth to the wearer’s lower- and mid-back.
The jacket also features storm cuffs, a responsive elasticated cuff that is waterproof and prevents excess water from entering the rain suit above a glove or during play – and is available in three colours: black/ zinc grey, black/maritime blue, and black. Matching waterproof trousers (RRP £100) are available in black.
