Golf outerwear maker ProQuip has supplied more Ryder Cup teams -- European and American -- than any other clothing manufacturer, and its new Trophy Suit is made from the same high-performance fabric technology developed for the 2012 European Ryder Cup Team rain suit.

The new garment will go on sale Sept. 25 – the beginning of Ryder Cup Week -- giving the golfing public a version of the weatherwear to be worn by Captain José María Olazábal and his squad.

The slim-fit suit, which features an exclusive ultra-lightweight waterproof fabric with high-performance breathability, offers athletic freedom of movement with comfort and protection in all conditions. The distinctive fabric is also crease-free, so it continues to look good even after being stored in a golf bag.

"We know from the experience of the 2010 Ryder Cup that the weather can be a factor and that keeping players dry and comfortable and enabling them to perform at their best is imperative," said ProQuip USA CEO Peter Dalton. "That's why the design team has pulled out all the stops to develop this world-class technical fabric, which has been rigorously tested to create what we believe is our best ever rain suit.

The Trophy Suit jacket is available in an array of colors and sizes (S-XXXL) with matching black trousers and, like all ProQuip rain suits, is guaranteed for three years. The suggested retail price is $400 for the jacket and $300 for the trousers.
