The Sunice Company has created a new 2015 Pro Sport and Sports Layers collection. The new line is focused on providing golfers the best collection of outerwear on the market.

Sunice addressed the needs of the golfer everywhere, and allow’s them better playing performance while enjoying the comfort they provide.

During a recent round of golf, I took the opportunity to research two items from the new line of outerwear by Sunice, the “Typhoon Jacket” and a new item from the Sunice pullover line, called “Sport” (pictured below).

Due to the weather I encountered that day, both pieces of outerwear came in handy. The round started Mid-Morning and was on the cool side (60’s) and then warmed up into the 70’s.

But an approaching weather front cooled things down again, before my partner and I finished all 18 holes.

I switched back and forth between both pieces, and found both of them to be extremely comfortable, especially the Typhoon Jacket, which for a long sleeve piece of outerwear, still left me comfortable and was flexible when I hit the ball with every club, from Driver to Putter.

I’m glad the rain never fell while I was playing my round of golf that day, but I’ll wear one or both pieces the next time I run into a drizzle on the course, and need my Sunice Outerwear to keep me dry while I’m still out in the rain playing.

There are a variety of colors to pick from and different styles as well. I admit that the straight black Typhoon Jacket is more my style than the louder colored Sport Pullover was, but different strokes, or in this case colors, for different folks. But at least while wearing the bright green Sport pullover, I knew if the skies darkened anymore, any golfer rushing behind me to get in the clubhouse in case rain fell, wouldn’t have any trouble spotting me anywhere on the golf course.

In the men’s collections Sunice is exploring a newness in demand for brighter colours. Whether it’s the neon-green or vibrant blue, there is now more to pick from than the older traditional colors of Black, Blue or White.

Ladies, Sunice has not forgotten about you either.

While the idea with the new colors is to embrace your femininity, the colors have been enriched to have a bolder look to them. Neon pinks with a classic white grounded with a charcoal flavor, give you a look that’s new and bold at the same time.

S77000 - ALLENDALE - 1102 - FRONTS64500 - CANDY - 71DT - FRONT                            The Blue Burbank (L) and the Candy (R) are more samples of the styles made by Sunice.

Sunice calls the new lines the “Sports Layers” Collection. Need to wear one or more pieces of outerwear on a given day. Sunice designs allow you to do that, while still having comfort and flexibility to hit the golf ball.

I know as I head into the fall golf season and the temperatures dip, my Sunice Golf outerwear will be kept in the bag or in the cart for that part of the season. So when you visit your pro shop or local golf store, and want to have the right look, feel, or comfort on the golf course in a variety of conditions or at the 19th hole. Ask for Sunice.
