I’ve been gaming the Callaway Apparel Men’s Dual Action 1/4 Zip Pullover Sweater on and off the course for a few months now.  This is a terrific sweater which is extremely comfortable. Let’s take a look.

Key Features

  • 100% Polyester
  • Insulated thermal fabric creates a barrier between you and cold weather
  • Weather-repellent fabric creates a barrier of lightweight protection to resist wind and water
  • UV Block UPF 50 protects you against the sun’s ultraviolet rays
  • Callaway Tour Logo on chest
  • Callaway Chevron Logo on center back
  • Fleece Fabrication Machine Washable Imported
  •  Available in BIG & TALL

Standard Sizes/Colors

Colors available include Caviar (dark gray), Medium Gray Heather (lighter gray), Peacoat Heather (dark blue), Blue Coral Heather (light blue), Castlerock Heather (medium gray).  I’m sure you’ll appreciate my translation on the colors…

Sizes available range from small to XXL.  I find the sizing to be accurate.  My XL fits as it should.

Retail pricing for standard sizes and colors is $75.

Big and Tall

There sweater is also available in “big and tall” sizes which range from LT to 5XLT.  Colors in the B&T line are Caviar, Blue Coral Heather, Castlerock Heather (see color english translations above).

Retail pricing for B&T sizes and colors runs $90.

In Action

I’m a big fan of polyester and spandex in apparel, but not the 80’s metal band kind.  The fabrics and technology over the past several years make for super high performance and comfort.  On the golf course the sweater helps keep me warm and loose.  I’m especially fond of the way the garment moves with me, even though my swing moves might not be terribly… natural.  Whether it is cold and/or wind I’m thrilled with the performance and style of the Callaway Apparel Men’s Dual Action 1/4 Zip Pullover Sweater.

I’ve even gamed this sweater in northern Utah weather conditions, as in snow.  It’s a great layer to put under my parka, and to wear indoors.  I’ve even worn it up on the slopes with great results.  Perhaps Callaway should make ski apparel.

Final Thoughts

I’m happy to have put the Callaway Apparel Men’s Dual Action 1/4 Zip Pullover Sweater into my starting lineup. The style, performance, and mostly comfort are terrific.  I’m also glad to have finally logged my first Callaway Apparel review in this humble golf blog’s history. It only took 15 years.  Hopefully my next Callaway Apparel review will hit sooner than 2034.

Phil Mickelson, Las Vegas, Pyrotechnics, Justin Timberlake, Callaway

Fore!

Just read a piece in the USA Today (not that I read that publication much) which talked about Callaway’s new direction in marketing.  They’ve brought on a new agency (Factory Design Labs) and also Justin Timberlake to consult with them.

“Looking to pump up sales and promote its two new products for 2012— the RAZR Fit driver and the Hex Black Tour golf ball — Callaway Golf is pumping up the volume in a game long known for its tranquility. Callaway hired marketing agency Factory Design Labs, who came up with the concept to take golf to a place it has never been – the neon-induced, over-the-top, volume-busting Las Vegas Strip. Factory Design then got in touch with Kahn and Justin Timberlake, the multiple Emmy and Grammy Award-winning actor, musician and avid golfer, to collaborate on a campaign that is as unique as it is eye-catching.”

The result is a campaign which is going to start toward the end of January which features Phil Mickelson and other Callaway players hitting shots on the Las Vegas strip with volcanoes erupting and pyrotechnics exploding.  Sounds fun.  I’d like to try that.  I’m not really a Justin Timberlake fan so I guess I’m not the demographic they’re going for, even though my demographic is the one with the money to spend.

It will be interesting to see what they do and how successful the campaign is.


Callaway denied new trial in Acushnet/ProV1 dispute – more to come

The Callaway vs Acushnet (parent company of Titleist) patent case has been going on now for about five years.  It has been like a boxing match with each heavyweight fighter seemingly getting knocked out, only to gain consciousness at the last second and deliver a near-knockout blow of their own.

Callaway scored a big victory in 2007, forcing Acushnet to stop selling the current revision of the ProV1, though that took nearly two years to happen.  Acushnet was forced to change the golf balls at that time.  I remember those few months when my buddies were stocking up on ProV1’s, just in case the new versions weren’t as good.  Acushnet later won an appeal on that ruling, and the court game was back on.

This past time around, Acushnet won as the judge upheld a jury verdict from March 2010, determining that the four patents in dispute were invalid.  Callaway was denied a request for a new trial.  Callaway has the option to appeal, but apparently will start a new suit for alleged infringement of other patents.
