New rainproof apparel from Cross Sportswear

Cross Sportswear’s new ultra-technical rainproof golf apparel delivers an unbeatable combination of outstanding waterproof performance and Scandinavian styling.

Cross Sportswear combines the four-way stretch, waterproof, windproof and breathable ultrathin FTX membrane with a range of different outer fabrics, in a three or two-layer sandwich construction, and the end result is up to 20,000 mm waterproofing and 20,000 g/m2/24h breathability. The user is kept dry on two levels: rain is repelled, while moisture vapour created by the body is allowed to evaporate rather then being trapped.

Golfers have a choice of three waterproof suit styles. The flagship Edge, mid-range Pro and entry-level Cloud which all provide protection from the elements. The Edge Jacket (RRP £217) features a three-layer sandwich construction of outer shell, membrane and inner lining protection but remains superlight, soft and quiet, stretchable and incredibly comfortable when playing golf thanks to its four-way stretch design.

With Bemis tape-sealed seams, a water repellent front zipper, adjustable collar, cuffs and hem and microfleece chin guard, it also has a full three-year waterproof guarantee. In a contemporary ‘narrow’ fit, the jacket is available in three colour schemes and sizes S-XXL. A zip-off sleeve, quarter zip Edge Pullover is also available in Sunburst Orange with white sleeves and charcoal back panel, or white with grey sleeves.

The same attention to detail is applied in the Pro suit, which is constructed using a two-layer laminated membrane/outer construction while retaining Cross Sportswear’s Level 1 rainproofing. This mid-range suit is packed with features like shaped collars, a Microfleece chin guard, sealed seams, an inner security pocket, bottom hem adjuster and fleece-lined front pockets.

The Pro Jacket (RRP £165) comes in five colour choices while the Pro Zip-Off jacket (RRP £174) has the option of removable sleeves. Fully co-ordinating Pro Pants (RRP £130) allow the golfer to look every inch the Tour professional, coming in three colours with waist sizes S-XXXL and three leg lengths.

Cross Sportswear also caters for golfers on more modest budgets, who demand excellence from their waterproofs without bursting the bank to get it. Here, the Cloud suit fits the bill perfectly, with a lightweight two-layer design guaranteeing Level 1 protection and breathability.

This entry-level suit incorporates the Cloud jacket (RRP £99) in five colour choices and the Cloud Pants (RRP £77), featuring long leg zippers to allow easy on-off even with shoes, Cordura re-inforcement and side, front and back pockets.
