When they decided to develop their new climawarm+ outwerwear collection, the designers at adidas Golf took their inspiration from a master of the cold weather: the polar bear.
Specifically, they emulated the bear's unique fur structure to develop a proprietary fabric that insulates heat generated by the golfer's body and traps it within hollow fibers to deliver sustained warmth. And by incorporating this versatile hollow fiber technology throughout the entire climawarm+ collection, they've created garments that delivera higher warmth-to-weight ratio than any previous adidas Golf outerwear.
''The fabrication of climawarm+ allows us to provide a completely different layering option for golfers,'' said Davide Mattucci, director of global product marketing. ''We're able to pack all the warmth of a typical heavy-weight layering piece into a streamlined, technically advanced piece of equipment that is lighter in weight and also allows a full range of motion, whatever the temperature.''
The climawarm+ outerwear collection includes a full-zip jacket, half-zip jacket and vest for men and a quarter-zip jacket and vest for women, all designed to keep golfers warm without restricting their range of motion during play. They retail for between $70 and $80, and are available now.
