Otter Company debuts new collection at 2013 PGA Merchandise Show

BIRMINGHAM, Mich. -- American apparel maker The Otter Company will debut its all-new women's 2013 outerwear collection at the 60th PGA Merchandise Show, Jan. 24-26, 2013, in booth 3549, at the Orange County Convention Center, in Orlando, Fla.

Designed to extend playing sessions and seasons shortened by poor weather, the new collection includes the return of the popular women's Storm Fleece Jacket, in new color combinations.

"The new Otter Company collection for women is bright, bold and pretty," said Debby Phelps, apparel designer for The Otter Company. "Every piece in the collection emphasizes both style and playability - and the new color combinations offer a dash of pop, flair and fun!"

"We are excited to expand our collection to include more choices for women," said Martin Stebbins, The Otter Company President. "We've demonstrated that weather repellant sportswear doesn't require sacrificing performance, function or fit - now we also offer the style that women golfers expect."

The Otter Company 2013 women's outerwear collection includes the return of the popular Storm Fleece Jacket, the all-new Women's Golf Jacket and the all-new Women's Golf Vest.

Women's Storm Fleece Jacket
With its smart tailoring, the comfort of cotton and the protection of a durable water repellent finish, it's clear why the Women's Storm Fleece Jacket has quickly become the choice of active women who demand style and non-binding athletic motion. Material: 70% cotton/30% polyester. Sizes: S-XL. Colors: white with golf green accents, black with fuchsia purple. $79.00 MSRP

New! Women's Golf Jacket
The all-new Women's Golf Jacket is plush and cottony soft. It offers style, warmth and playability. With its pleated back vent and unique ruffled front yoke, mobility is ensured. A self-standing collar with storm flap and garage closure keeps the cold and wind away, and its two roomy pockets and rib knit cuffs and waistband finish the new product with flair. Material: 70% cotton/30% polyester. Sizes: S-XL. Colors: black and white, navy and turquoise, sangria and tangerine. $59.00 MSRP

New! Women's Golf Vest
The all-new Women's Golf Vest is a perfect second or third layer.

Material: 70% cotton/30% polyester. Sizes: S-XL. Colors: black and white, navy and turquoise, sangria and tangerine. $49.00 MSRP

About The Otter Company
The Otter Company, headquartered in Birmingham, Mich., designs, manufactures and markets comfortable, technical and ecologically sensitive outerwear for sports people. We maximize playtime and extend sessions and seasons with garments that allow play earlier in the spring, later in the fall and in any inclement weather.

Inspired by the otter, whose fur is the thickest in the animal kingdom and is constructed in layers to trap air, generate warmth, and keep the skin dry - the otter is comfortable at play in any climate. Otter garments emulate this brilliant natural design and the spirit of the otter - its playfulness, its freedom, and its willingness to continue to enjoy itself when the weather is less than ideal. We say, "Whatever the weather. Keep playing. Stay comfortable." It's the otter's way, and The Otter Company's pledge. www.theottercompany.com
