Målet för FootJoys designteam var att skapa en produkt som var lätt och som fortfarande var 100% vattentät. De fokuserade på konstruktionen av jackan och utforskade sätt att minska vikten och öka rörligheten. Där andra jackor kan ha å många som 24 delar och 27 eller flera sömmar, har den nya LTS jackan endast fem delar och sex sömmar. Färre delar och ömmar minskar vikten, förbättrar rörligheten och eliminerar ställen där vatten kan samlas.
Att bibehålla temperaturreglerande egenskaper var nästa mål för FJ-teamet. Ett samarbetet med ThermoLite® gjorde detta öjligt genom ett speciellt utvecklat ThermoLite foder med fördjupad textur. När väderförhållandet är svalt, fångar fodret pp kroppsvärmen och när väderförhållandet är varmt, absorberar fibrerna i fodret fukten och exponerar värmen för optimal temperaturreglering.
FootJoy fokuserar uteslutande på golfspelet, så vid val av tyg för en ny regnjacka fanns det vissa kriterier som det inte gick tt kompromissa med. Det tredje nyckelelementet i DryJoys Tour LTS är det helt nya tyget, vilket har en enastående stretch ch vattentäthet. Med golfsvingen i åtanke har FJ utvecklat ett ”3-lagers tyg”, vilket har mjuka, bekväma och tysta genskaper, samt en utmärkt ”4-vägs” stretch.
GODKÄND AV VÅRA TOURSPELARE
"My initial thoughts were I couldn't believe how light the jacket was when I picked it up compared to other rain tops I have. I'm used to a 1/4 Zip Short Sleeve style rain top, as I prefer to keep my arms free and unrestricted, but the LTS was so light and flexible that I could swing freely as if I was playing in short sleeves. The stretch material also helped me to feel like I could complete my normal swing which I don't get with other premium rain jackets."
"I played very early one day and the wind was whipping to about 30mph but I didn't feel like it was penetrating the jacket. I could feel the cold on my face and hands but not on my torso. I also had three layers on underneath the jacket which might normally be restricting, but the jacket just moved with me no problem. I was warm, comfortable and had full range of motion, even as the temperature started to climb a bit."
"I was hugely impressed with how the LTS performed in the rain. I've had experiences with rain jackets in the past that boast that they are lightweight and fully waterproof but after a few holes you are bogged down by a jacket that has become saturated and heavy. The LTS repelled the rain superbly, keeping me dry while maintaining the lightweight feeling and full mobility that is very important to me. I couldn't believe how dry I was under the jacket considering some of the torrential downpours we faced on the course."
"Overall I was very impressed with the LTS and it's safe to say I'll be wearing this whenever I play in wet, cold and/or windy conditions!"
“I recently wore the LTS jacket on a golf trip and we faced a wide range of conditions - wet, cold, windy....and sometimes all three at once! The fabric comfortably stretches throughout the swing with no restrictions and I was completely dry and comfortable no matter how the conditions varied. I even got the chance to have it on during tornado weather over the weekend in Tulsa! Excellent product.”
“I played 36 holes last week in the new LTS rain jacket and it performed incredibly well. It gave me full freedom of movement during the swing and it was light and comfortable to wear. Although it was quite a warm day I maintained a comfortable temperature and most importantly of course it kept me completely dry for the full 8 hours. I would recommend the new Dryjoys LTS rain jacket to all of my playing partners.”
“The performance of the LTS jacket exceeded my expectations. What was most important to me was the fact that the LTS jacket allowed me to take a full swing without feeling constrained. It provided a much greater range of motion and I would say that it stretched with my swing and not against my swing. It is a very lightweight jacket that did not feel 'bulky' at all."
"During the rounds where I was wearing the LTS, we encountered some pretty significant temperature changes as well as precipitation. My core body temperature was not affected. I stayed dry and warm through the weather changes during the entire round."
"We don't play in the rain very often but when we do, I need a jacket that's not going to interfere with my game in any way. Like any layer I put on, it needs to move with me during my swing, not make me too hot and also protect me from the elements. I get all of those things with the LTS jacket." -- Jimmy Walker
