The writer said:

“Sun Mountain famously weathered a storm when its rain gear underperformed at the 2010 Ryder Cup in waterlogged Wales. But it’s since come back strong, successfully outfitting the 2011 U.S. Presidents Cup team in wet and windy Melbourne with its StormTight line. The polyester-and-spandex blend jacket has four-way stretching and waterproof zippers, and the zippered pant legs can be shortened by more than two inches to keep you as clean as your scorecard. Jacket $240. Pant $190.”

The Sun Mountain StormTight golf rain gear collection offers guaranteed waterproof protection using an advanced, new four-way stretch woven fabric that shields against wind and rain while remaining breathable. StormTight is available in a full-zip jacket and pants in men’s ($239, $189) and women’s ($179, $149) as well as a long-sleeve pullover ($169) for men. Modeled after the rain suits Sun Mountain created for the 2011 USA Presidents Cup Team, StormTight is available at golf shops now and on-line at the Shop Sun Mountain website.

StormTight is constructed from a four-way stretch, woven fabric. This shell is bonded to a waterproof/breathable membrane and has an advanced water repellant finish that causes water to bead up and roll off. StormTight keeps the rain and wind out and stretches to allow a free golf swing.

Additional features on the StormTight Jacket include: expansion panels at the shoulders to allow an unrestricted swing, waterproof zippers, adjustable hem and cuffs, pass-through hand warmer pockets on the pants, and a snap system at hem allowing pant legs to be shortened by 2.5”.
