SCHOELLER AND BREATH THERMO FABRIC TECHNOLOGIES HEADLINE STUNNING NEW AW16 APPAREL COLLECTION
Exciting performance technologies in Mizuno’s Autumn Winter 2016 (AW16) apparel collection include a new relationship with renowned Swiss waterproof fabric innovator, Schoeller, plus Breath Thermo, a revolutionary yarn that generates sufficient warmth in just one unrestrictive layer.
Mizuno, founded in Osaka, Japan, in 1906, has long held an enviable reputation not only for its forged irons, but also for some of the most technologically advanced performance apparel on the market.
The AW16 golf collection will be no exception, with Mizuno proud to announce a new association with renowned Swiss fabric innovator, Schoeller. The company, founded in 1868, has long been held in high regard for its high-performing, stretchable, breathable, waterproof fabrics and Mizuno’s AW16
¼ Zip and Pro Rain Jackets, along with matching Rain Pants, all benefit from the maximum weather protection the new collaboration with Schoeller has brought to the range.
“Mizuno’s base in apparel has always been within the technical environment,” commented Aki Shirane, Global Head of Apparel. “Mizuno rainwear has always been at the head of the field and that’s something we wanted to get back to in 2016. The collaboration with Schoeller and re-introduction of the revolutionary Breath Thermo puts our golf wear firmly back at the performance end of the market.”
Both new Mizuno AW16 Rain Jackets are brimming with performance features engineered to help you play your best when the elements conspire against you. They are tailored from a 3-way stretch fabric, with Schoeller’s input providing an intelligent temperature adaptive c-change membrane that actively adjusts heat retention to allow comfortable use even in warmer conditions, plus a ‘wipe dry’ water-repelling outer fabric. The exceptional waterproofing and breathability this expertise provides is complemented by Mizuno’s Dynamotion Fit, which ensures total freedom of movement as you swing.
The ¼ Zip Rain Jacket will be available in Black/Black, Blue/White and Black/White while the full-zip Pro Rain Jacket will come in White/Blue, Black/Black and Blue/White. The matching Rain Pants will be available in Black only.
When warmth rather than dryness is the main need, Mizuno’s Breath Thermo yarn will generate the heat required to keep you warm in just one free-swinging layer. This revolutionary yarn features in three garments – the Long Sleeve Polo Shirt, Mid Active Jacket and Micro Down Gilet.
The stylish Breath Thermo Long Sleeve shirt features a traditional self-fold collar, hidden front buttons and an embroidered logo on the sleeve. It is available in three colours – Castlerock, Iris and Grenadine. The striking new BT Mid Active Jacket is almost too light and flexible to be considered a jacket, yet will not only cope perfectly with cold, clear conditions, but also sit comfortably under a waterproof outer layer thanks to its revolutionary Breath Thermo lining. High-stretch properties and shoulder flex panels provide complete freedom to swing. The BT Mid Active Jacket comes in three colours – Navy, Castlerock and Cobalt.
The Breath Thermo Micro Down Gilet is then a sleeveless garment with a quilted body that perfectly satisfies Mizuno’s belief that on colder golfing days you ideally need to keep your core body warm while leaving your arms free to swing. Available in Black or Cobalt, the Micro Down Gilet boasts stretch side panels, a funnel neck to keep things snug yet free, and two side zip pockets. The Gilet and Mid Active Jacket will form the perfect alliance on those days when maximum warmth is required.
Completing the AW16 collection is the excellent moisture-managing Drylite Base layer in White or Black. The Drylite Base also features Dynamotion Fit, and is contoured to fit against the body rather than being skin-tight. Its feather-soft anti-bacterial layer allows the garment to move freely against the skin for maximum comfort.
Mizuno’s new AW16 apparel collection, available from September 2016, once again offers a perfect blend of style and performance, with the relationship with highly respected Schoeller and renewed reliance on the high-performing Breath Thermo yarn, taking the collection’s performance attributes to a whole new level.
