Best waterproofs on the market
A waterproof jacket is a key piece of kit at this time of year, but should you go for a golf-specific one or any old one from the high street? Well, here's the answer…
Clothing & Footwear
When it comes to winter golf, a good waterproof is an absolute must-have because, well, have you ever been caught out in the rain? Yeah, that’s why! However, the survey tells us that 12% of responders don’t actually have a golf-specific waterproof. And, for those who do have a golf waterproof, more than 20% have one that is more than five years old.
That means enjoying more golf every year and, crucially, continuing to improve for the following summer.
What makes a golf waterproof so different? Having stretchy fabric makes a world of difference when swinging your club, and the use of lightweight materials is very noticeable through 18 holes as you feel much more comfortable and less weighed-down.
Then, of course, we come to these waterproofs that are over five years old. This obviously means they might not protect you quite as well, but what you might not have thought of is the waterproof guarantee. We know it sounds boring, but if your waterproof guarantee is up then you’ll be in a real pickle if your jacket does give way.
