Sun Mountain expands popular windshirt collection line for 2013

The Sun Mountain Headwind windshirt blocks wind and is so lightweight you might even forget you're wearing it. With a water-repellant coating, this pullover doesn't just protect from wind but also a light shower. Following a successful first year, the Headwind collection is expanding for 2013 to include men's and women's and short and long sleeve styles. Headwind wind jackets are in golf shops now from $59. Call 800-227-9224 or visit www.sunmountain.com to find your nearest retailer.

Headwind is a windproof microfiber pullover jacket with a stand-up comfort collar and hand warmer pockets. The exterior of the jacket is treated with a durable water repellant coating (DWR) so a light rain simply beads up and rolls off. For 2013, the Headwind Long Sleeve ($89), Short Sleeve ($69) and Women's Headwind ($79) also include a flexible insert across the back and shoulders. Constructed from Sun Mountain's proprietary water-resistant and breathable RainFlex® fabric, this insert stretches with the golfer to allow a free and unrestricted swing. The new for 2013 Headwind Solo ($59) offers the same wind and drizzle protection as the other models without the stretchable shoulder insert.

To give the highest level of comfort and allow a customized fit without inhibiting the swing, Headwind also features shock cord adjustments at its lower hem as well as adjustable cuffs.

An early field-tester said this about the Headwind, "I golfed in windy, drizzly 40-degree days here in Wisconsin, and this shirt completely blocked the wind — and the drizzle beaded up and fell right off. I was dry and comfortable and I didn't have to do anything other than give a good shake at the end of the round. Lightweight and roomy, it's as if I didn't have the shirt on. The fabric is quiet also — no swishy sounds of cheap raingear."

Headwind comes in an array of colors in both men's and women's styles so you can add a splash of color with royal blue or red for men, and purple and cedar for women, or stick with the more traditional black, gray or white.

For 30 years Sun Mountain has been a pioneer in the golf industry, revolutionizing golf bags, golf outerwear and golf carts. Sun Mountain's many innovations, including the first lightweight golf bag and modern stand bag, have made it the top golf bag company in North America. Within golf outerwear, Sun Mountain redefined golf-specific performance first with the windshirt, then fleece, and again with its four-way stretch, waterproof, and breathable rainwear. The Sun Mountain Speed Cart® golf push cart transformed walking carts and created an entirely new category of golf products. Sun Mountain's "Ahead of Time Design" motto drives the company to continually design and refine golf equipment.
