WATERPROOF GOLF RAINWEAR
Since our inception, Abacus has always had the wearer of our garments as our main focus. We believe that your golf clothes should work for you both on and off the course, and that what you’re wearing should never distract you from your game.
Abacus' golf rain gear offers the ultimate in function and performance so that you can focus on what really matters. As pioneers in rainwear, we’ve created a line of lightweight gear designed around breathability, waterproofness, and stretchiness. It’s rain gear that doesn’t feel like rain gear so you can look and feel your best regardless of what type of weather comes your way.
INNOVATION IN GOLF WATERPROOF CLOTHING
"THE TECHNOLOGY HAS EVOLVED SO MUCH SINCE WE DESIGNED OUR FIRST RAIN SET IN 1999."
Chris Mattsson, chief designer
Just standing up and down doesn’t ask that much of your clothing. Swinging a club and the movement it entails however requires gear that’s built for performance. When we first started designing and producing rain sets with golf clothing tech, the range of functional fabrics was very limited, particularly in terms of stretch and comfort. Today there are completely different possibilities, and we’re proud to bring them to you in the Abacus golf waterproof collection.
THE NEW ERA OF RAINWEAR
When you’re looking for a waterproof golf jacket—or any other type of waterproof golf gear—you want more than just something that will keep you dry.
Golfers are always in motion, so their clothes need to be suitable for the task. We’ve optimized our waterproof performance-wear to provide exceptional breathability, which keeps sweat and moisture on the outside where it belongs. By adding stretch and lightweight materials, we’ve managed to create rain sets that really work for the active golfer, including both on and off the course.
“Several times during the six Solhiem Cups we did, the European team kept their rainwear on throughout the match, even when it wasn’t raining. It tells me that we have succeeded in what we are trying to do” says Chris Mattsson.
Our goal: design golf waterproofs and rain gear that doesn’t feel like rain gear. And while it’s taken some years to get our customers to trust that our stretchy and lightweight rain jackets are just that (and not wind jackets), the proof is in the performance—and all of the benefits that come along with it.
