Ping unveils waterproof ‘game changer’

typhoon_trousers_v1 MR Ping

Debuted in its Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, Ping’s technical golf apparel line features new Sensor platform of performance fabric technologies that provide guaranteed waterproof and wind resistant protection.

Made up of Sensor Cool, Sensor Warm, and Sensor Dry, the Sensor platform of performance fabric technologies attempts to maximise playability, whatever the conditions.

Standout designs in the Autumn/Winter 2014 line, incorporating Sensor Dry technology, are the Altitude waterproof suit and Typhoon waterproof chino trouser, both guaranteed by PING to be waterproof for three years.

Ping Typhoon


Ping hope The Typhoon will be a game changer. It has been engineered to look, feel and fit like a high quality chino but offers the performance of a waterproof pant. This offers versatility for golfers and aims to provide an innovative alternative to carrying the traditional waterproof trouser during the round, freeing up valuable space in the golf bag.

The Typhoon has a lightweight chino twill surface, laminated to a high performance film to guarantee waterproof protection for three years. A highly durable, water repellent finish has also been added to the surface of the fabric to bead water away from the chino, enabling dirt to be easily wiped away.

Waterproof protection is ensured with all seams sealed throughout. A stretch fabric and straight leg fit offer comfort and create the silhouette of a classic chino.

The Typhoon also has a soft, stretchable lining, security side zip pockets and an internal self-sizer waistband, further increasing comfort during play.

The waterproof Altitude suit features a lightweight, four-way stretch laminated fabric that has been developed to allow a free swing whilst remaining breathable.

A durable water repellent finish has been added to the surface of the fabric to help water off the suit and keep it dry. Waterproof zips and fully sealed seams offer complete waterproof protection on the jacket which PING guarantees for 3 years.

Other features include offset pockets on the front of the jacket to minimise distraction during play, adaptable zip-off sleeves and a scorecard pocket.
