Glenmuir Extends Rain Bloc® Range With Three-Year Waterproof Guarantee
Published: 17 December 2008
Glenmuir men’s and ladies’ Rain Bloc garments
Golfers looking for the very best performance from their outerwear will find Glenmuir’s 2009 Rain Bloc® range delivering on three counts – outstanding waterproofing; superb moisture-wicking ‘temperature control’ technology; and a three year waterproof guarantee.
These factors produced a best-ever sell for Glenmuir last season and, with this in mind, five new garments have been added to the Rain Bloc® range this Spring/Summer.
The Scottish based company, one of Europe’s leading golf apparel brands, has introduced the fully waterproof Rain Bloc® Drive trousers and Rain Bloc® Pro and Rain Bloc® Club tops to the Men’s Performance Collection and the Rain Bloc ® Medal trousers and Rain Bloc ® Zip top to their ladies’ outerwear range.
All Rain Bloc® products – which are backed by a three-year waterproof guarantee – boast the very best weather-beating performance thanks to their outstanding fabric technologies and excel at keeping wet weather out while allowing moisture to wick away from the body.
Both the men’s Rain Bloc® Drive and ladies’ Rain Bloc ® Medal trousers are manufactured in a quiet, lightweight and breathable laminated microfibre outer with lightweight, breathable lining. The outer is Teflon-coated to ensure wind proofing, water resistance and stain repellency.
Both flat-fronted trousers, available in black and navy, feature an elasticated waistband with drawstring adjuster, two front pockets, back scorecard pocket and leg zips with storm flaps, Velcro adjuster and fit studs. The prestigious Glenmuir 1891 logo can be found on the back pocket.
The men’s long sleeved Rain Bloc® Pro top and half-sleeve Rain Bloc® Club top and ladies’ long sleeved Rain Bloc ® Zip top also have a quiet, lightweight and breathable laminated microfibre outer, but with an ultra-light breathable micro-mesh lining.
All three feature a water repellent zip neck and side pocket zips and adjustable Velcro side tabs and draw cord hem.
The Rain Bloc® Pro and Rain Bloc® Club - which come in silver, black, navy and azure colour options - also have a stretch panel at the back shoulders, back scorecard pocket and the Glenmuir 1891 logo on the right sleeve.
The Rain Bloc ® Zip boasts stretch body panels and comes in eye-catching apricot, ice blue and latte.
All three men’s products come in sizes S-XXL. The Rain Bloc® Drive trousers are available for a suggested retail price of £52.50, the Rain Bloc® Pro top for £73.50 and Rain Bloc® Club top for £68.
The women’s trousers and top come in sizes S-XL with the Rain Bloc ® Medal available for a suggested retail price of £52.50 and the Rain Bloc ® Zip for £73.50.
The five new Rain Bloc® products have been introduced following a phenomenal response to the 2008 launch of Glenmuir’s zip-front Rain Bloc® jackets – the men’s Rain Bloc® Light and ladies’ Rain Bloc® Flex and Rain Bloc® Shell – and men’s zip-neck Rain Bloc® Stretch top.
This season the original men’s products have been colour updated with the Rain Bloc® Light now available in navy/azure in addition to silver/black and black/graphite and the Rain Bloc® Stretch top now comes in azure/navy as well as black/silver and graphite/black.
The ladies’ garments are still each available in three popular colourways. The Rain Bloc® Flex in silver/black, black/citrus and navy/alpine pink and Rain Bloc® Shell in chilli pepper/black, citrus/black and alpine pink/navy.
Andy Bough, Glenmuir Marketing Director, said: “Rain Bloc® is a very high performance technology designed to give the golfer the best in comfort and performance.
“It delivers outstanding waterproofing and, at the same time, allows internal water vapour to wick away from the golfer’s body. Golfers generate a lot of body heat – they wear many layers and are constantly on the move, but Rain Bloc® ensures all this vapour escapes through the fabric – keeping the player cool and dry.
“It also guarantees freedom of movement thanks to its stretch characteristics and has a three-year waterproof guarantee.”
