ProQuip USA weatherwear to exhibit at 2013 PGA Merchandise Show

MARBLEHEAD, Mass -- ProQuip USA announced that the company will debut its complete line of state-of-the-art performance weatherwear available to the North American golf market at the PGA Merchandise Show (Booth #4947) in Orlando next week.

ProQuip USA's 2013 Weatherwear Collection will include a complete line of waterproof, quiet, breathable, stretch performance and ultra-lightweight rain suits and wind apparel for men and women.

A highlight of the collection is ProQuip's new Trophy Suit, giving all golfers the opportunity to benefit from the high-performance fabric technology developed by ProQuip for the 2012 European Ryder Cup Team rain suit.

ProQuip is fresh off outfitting the 2012 European Team, where its proprietary rainsuit was the apparel of choice for Captain Jose Maria Olazabal and his assistant captains to fend off the chilly Chicago mornings. The Scottish golf weatherwear specialist has a rich heritage in the prestigious event and will design and supply its 20th Ryder Cup waterproof suit when the biennial match between Europe and the USA is contested at Gleneagles in Scotland in two years' time.

The 2013 collection also will feature a recently introduced, innovative water repellent knitwear, featuring lined, premium British lamb's wool, specially treated so that water beads up and runs off the wool. The garment is also machine-washable and tumble dryer friendly, the first high quality yarn and knit of its kind produced with total easy care.

"We are very enthusiastic about the product range that ProQuip USA will bring to market in 2013," said Peter Dalton, ProQuip USA CEO. The communication lines with ProQuip Ltd. In Scotland have been exceptional as it relates to product development opportunities, and that's good news for golfers in North America."

ProQuip USA's sales and distribution operations exclusively encompass the following markets: United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Islands of the Caribbean and Bermuda. ProQuip USA is located at 40 Tioga Way, Suite 200, Marblehead, MA 01945 and can be contacted at 781.639.1060 or online at
