KJUS: Cool for the Summer
Summer 2016 is a hit for KJUS. Not only has KJUS released another fantastic line up of high-performance activewear for the season, but the company has also inked a new sponsorship deal with the PGA Tour’s Charl Schwartzel.
After Schwartzel announced his departure from Nike to join the PXG Troops earlier this month, he also picked up a new apparel sponsorship from KJUS. The South African made his KJUS gear debut during The Open, with a style script that included KJUS’s Strike Primeflex Polo, Inmotion Pants, and Dorian Jacket. Schwartzel shared some love for his new clothing sponsor on Twitter during this weekend’s major championship and we couldn’t agree with his sentiment more.
When I feel good, I play good! @KJUS_Company is the most innovative golf wear on the market and I am excited to be part of the team

For our review of KJUS’s Summer 2016 collection, we checked out the men’s Dexter Half-zip, Retention Jacket, Soren Stripe Polo, and Seapoint Engineered Polo as well as the ladies’ Maxima Jacket, Signe Engineered Polo, and Ida Skort. The most noticeable change for KJUS’s Summer 2016 apparel is the number of vibrant colors to choose from, which is a significant departure from seasons past where black, navy, and gray predominated the color scheme.
KJUS Summer 2016 Men’s Apparel
KJUS is focused on keeping you cool (and dry) for the summer. The Soren and Seapoint polos both feature lightweight fabrics that expertly manage moisture as well as open sleeve construction with ventilated panels, these polos will be your friend during hot, humid summer days.
The Dexter Half-zip is by far the most light-weight, easy to pack, course ready rain jacket we’ve ever had in our hands. The Dexter is feather-weight and folds into a small pouch. Not only is it super convenient, it is also super functional — offering wind and water proof protection with a dirt and water repellent finish.
The Retention Jacket features an insulating layer with KJUS’s ThermoCore technology. This jacket shines for early morning Summer rounds in northern climates, or it can bridge you for chillier rounds in spring and fall. The jacket’s clean and tailored look gets a style boost with with an eye-catching criss-cross stitching pattern, similar to the Novalight vest we tested from the Winter 2016 collection.
KJUS Summer 2016 Women’s Apparel
Women wearing KJUS’s Signe Engineered Polo, can stay cool for the summer too! The polo also features an open sleeve construction with ventilation as well as several of KJUS’s fabric technologies, such as FastDry, HeiQ Pure, and HeiQ Adaptive to keep you feeling fresh and dry, even on the warmest summer days.
While we’re used to polyester fabrics offering moisture wicking control, the Ida Skort stands out for maintaing temperature control and flexible stretch with a unique “cotton touch” material blend with a soft feel.
For women looking to escape the heat and play 18 in cooler climates this summer, pick up the Maxima jacket. This modern take on a fleece zip up is constructed of ultrasoft fleece that packs a performance punch with KJUS’s FastDry technology.
