Product Review – February 2009

PUMA Invisibonding Technology

For Spring Summer 2009, PUMA® Golf dials up the sophistication with pieces that promise both on-course performance and off-course style. The highlight of the collection is the elimination of all non-essential components from the silhouettes, bringing excitement and innovation to the wearer and to the game.

New for 2009 PUMA Golf apparel is Invisibonding technology, the alternative to classic stitching, and the first of its kind in Golf. Invisibonding works by welding two pieces of material together with a light molecular bond, which provides maximum durability, reduces friction on the skin and creates a seamless and comfortable garment.

For men, PUMA Golf offerings featuring the new technology include the Golf Invisibonding Polo and the Golf Graphic Invisibonding Polo. Both three-button polos are enhanced with additional PUMA apparel technologies such as Moisture Management and Cyclofresh; the polos each retail for $80.

The women’s Golf Invisibonding Polo is not only classically sophisticated, but also versatile. The collar is designed to be worn as a mock neck or polo. With its seamless technology, the top allows for easy movement when swinging the golf club. Available in both black and white, it retails for $80. For more information, visit golf.puma.com.
