Choosing Sun Mountain outerwear can help extend golf season

MISSOULA, Mont. -- Fall golf can be the best golf of the season with less crowded courses and cooler temperatures. To fend off the frosty mornings and chilly evenings, Sun Mountain has a range of golf outerwear to fit your unique needs. Whether the need is warmth, water resistance or a wind breaker, find your most convenient Sun Mountain retailer at

If you are looking for a jacket that blocks the wind and also offers some warmth, Sun Mountain WeatherShield and Chinook are great options. And, both work well on and off the course.

WeatherShield is a windproof, soft-shell, all-weather jacket offering the comfort of four-way stretch. Distinguished by its three-layer construction, WeatherShield has a stretchable polyester shell bonded to a body-facing fleece liner with a waterproof, windproof, breathable membrane sandwiched in between. The soft-shell jacket is also treated with a durable water repellant finish (DWR) for additional water and stain resistance. WeatherShield is available as a full-zip jacket for men ($139 retail) and as a vest ($99 retail) for women.

Chinook is a half-zip, pullover, wind sweater with a soft, knitted cotton outer layer and a windproof liner for complete wind protection. Both the shell and liner have significant stretch for comfort and freedom of movement. Chinook provides warmth and unimpeded movement through the swing and is a great upgrade to the traditional golf sweater ($119 retail).

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.
