Golf Apparel Review: Antigua Performance Apparel


Antigua Desert Dry Antigua Performance Apparel has been in the golf apparel business for years. Chances are you probably own a shirt or pair of golf pants from the multi-sport company, which speaks volumes for their high quality and trust in the marketplace.

I recently had the chance to try out a few items from Antigua's new upcoming Spring 2015 collection, which proved to be consistent with the level of quality one would suspect from this great company.

Antigua’s Spring 2015 Men’s Golf collection is loaded with technology. For example, our exclusive Desert Dry™ technology absorbs and wicks moisture quickly and evenly, achieving the most-efficient evaporation possible to keep golfers comfortable and dry.

The Desert Dry™ family now includes poly/cotton blends. Antigua has taken Desert Dry™ moisture management technology and constructed fabrics with fine cotton fibers blended with synthetic filaments to create Desert Dry™ Performance Cotton. Customers have been requesting a more casual fabric, without compromising the wicking capabilities of the poly fabrics.

Meanwhile, Desert Dry™ Xtra-Lite combines the Desert Dry™ moisture-wicking feature with specially constructed ultra-light fabrics for maximum wicking performance and optimum comfort. New additions to this category are 100% poly fabrics that feel and look like cotton. The garments feel like cozy cotton, but handle perspiration like poly. These new cotton-like poly fabrics open up a whole new world to our consumers, who can have the comfort of their favorite tee while maintaining the ease of poly’s wear and wicking power.

The Spring 2015 Men’s Golf Collection includes 11 new shirt styles featuring proprietary Desert Dry and Desert Dry Xtra-Lite technology, as well as an assortment of pullovers, jackets, shorts, vest and hats. “Antigua’s Men’s Performance 72  Collection - Spring 2015 reflects the inspiration of defined and refined lines and angles both symmetric and asymmetric,” says Sean Gregg, Antigua’s director of product development and marketing support. “Each piece offers this distinction from our newly introduced style Soul with its high-low horizontal multi-wale double knit stripe in solid colors to style Vantage with its contrasting elastic taping details that highlight the styles linear raglan form.”
