On the heels of announcing its ambitious expansion plan into the American golf apparel market, leading Irish golf clothing label Kartel is debuting its first U.S. collection for men with the launch of its Spring/Summer 2012 line, featuring a diverse selection of golf shirts, sweaters, jackets, rain suits and accessories.

Highlighting the 2012 collection is the G2 Golf Rain Suit, co-designed by three-time major winner, Padraig Harrington. This jacket and pants set is made of waterproof gelanots, providing superior protection against wind and rain, while also maintaining breathability for the ultimate in comfort.

Other features of the jacket include: removable, zip out sleeves at the elbow; air flap panel on the chest to improve air circulation; action shoulder pleats on the back of the jacket; drawstrings to tighten jacket around upper waist; and front zip pockets. The pants feature a side zip pocket; concealed zippered opening panel at the ankle; and an angled Velcro bottom strap to guide rain over the golf shoe.

"We are very excited to officially debut Kartel's first collection of men's clothing in the U.S. market, and lay the foundation for what we expect will be a successful business operation in America for the storied Kartel brand," said Karl Swan, Kartel's managing director.
