Specifically, the players’ outerwear for The Presidents Cup 2013 will include: a full-zip rain jacket, long sleeve rain pullover, short sleeve rain pullover, rain pants, long sleeve wind pullover, short sleeve wind pullover, long sleeve thermal pullover, and a waterproof bucket hat. Caddies’ outerwear will include: full zip long sleeve rain jacket, short sleeve rain pullover, rain pants, long sleeve wind pullover, long sleeve thermal pullover, and bucket hat. Players’ significant others will have options to include: full-zip rain jacket, rain pants, thermal vest and bucket hat.
Sun Mountain Founder Rick Reimers commented, “We spent a lot of time before the 2011 Presidents Cup evaluating solutions to the weather protection needs of tournament golfers. Our solution was what became our StormTight collection of rain gear. The 2011 event saw significant rain and everyone was happy with the protection StormTight offered while still meeting the players’ needs for a flexible, stretchable garment. We are honored to be chosen to outfit The Presidents Cup U.S. Team and look forward to once again putting our rain, wind and thermal gear to the test.”
This year Sun Mountain will also be featured in the on-site Presidents Cup merchandise tent selling U.S. team-logoed outerwear.

Sun Mountain RainFlex golf rain wear offers the often pursued, yet difficult to attain combination of being waterproof and breathable plus lightweight, stretchable, and quiet.
Thanks to the knitting process used to produce RainFlex, the garment stretches 100% across the shoulders, 30% top to bottom, and 100% diagonally. Most rainwear is woven nylon with almost zero stretch.
The RainFlex line includes a full-zip jacket with internal chest pocket, hand warmer pockets, and adjustable cuffs and hem.
RainFlex pants offer an elastic waist, zipper fly, lower leg zippers and a snap system at the hem allowing leg length to be shortened by 2.5”.
RainFlex is also available as a long sleeve pullover and short sleeve pullover and in women’s full zip jacket and pants.
All RainFlex styles come with a two-year waterproof guarantee and durable water repellant finish that causes water to bead up and roll off.
Nothing beats RainFlex for quiet, stretchable golf rain gear.

Speed Cart lets you enjoy walking the course without shouldering your own clubs.
At first glance, the SV1 looks similar to past speed carts, but further inspection reveals several upgrades. The totally redesigned console for the SV1 is divided into three separate sections that allow you to separate and divide various electronic devices and accessories. The new console also conceals a slide-out tray for scorecard and pencil. Additionally, the drink holder has been moved and is now a stand-alone on the side of the handle to allow it more freedom to swivel. SV1 also comes standard with a cargo net that offers a convenient place to hold head covers or a jacket.
Additional improvements on the SV1 include the new E-Z Latch System to allow easier folding, unfolding and handle height adjustment; solid foam tires with anodized wheels to match the frame; and a new pin brake system to more securely lock the wheels in place.
Other standard accessories on the SV1 include an umbrella holder on the frame for closed umbrella storage and on the cart’s handle for an open umbrella.

Sun Mountain’s Sync golf bag makes it easier than ever for your golf gear to work in harmony. Sync is engineered specifically to fit on all SunMountain push carts, the top and bottom nest nicely in the cart’s bag brackets and a bottom is molded precisely to fit over the carts’ lower bag rest.
The exacting fit of the Sync stabilizes the bag on the cart by minimizing side-to-side movement. Sync features a 10”, 14-way top with individual, full length club dividers plus a separate putter well. Sync’s 9 pockets, all forward-facing so they are easily accessible when the bag is on the cart, include two full-length clothing pockets, a beverage pocket and a velour-lined valuables pocket.
Sync works equally well on the three-wheeled Speed Cart V1 and SV1, as well as on the four-wheeled Micro-Cart. Sync also works well on golf riding carts.
Sync features Sun Mountain’s proprietary top with three built-in handles that provide a convenient spot to grab when picking the bag up, as well as a lift-assist panel built into the spine pocket to help when lifting it in or out of your car trunk.
