DRESS FOR SUCCESS
Why do you get wet from inside your rain gear when it rains? You need breathability! Breathability is extremely important when people are in motion, which the golfer always is. It is easy to stare blindly at the waterproof qualities when it’s really the breathability that is most important. Otherwise you sweat and get wet from the inside. If you then add stretch and light weight you get a rain set that really works for the active golfer, on and off the course.
Key features for rain gear
Waterproofness relates to how many millimeters of water a fabric can withstand before water seeps through. A fabric is considered waterproof if it has a WP of 2,000 mm. Abacus rainwear range from 10,000 to 20,000 WP.
Breathability is so you don’t get wet from the inside. It’s measured by how many grams of vapor that can pass through the fabric in 24 hours. The larger the number, the higher the breathability. Abacus rainwear varies from 10,000g to 50,000g.
Stretch is crucial for your ability to move freely. This ensures focus in on your game. Some Abacus rain wear can stretch up to twice their length and are always made in 4 way stretch!
Lightweight waterproofs don’t need to be bulky or heavy. They should never hinder your swing and barely be noticeable when you wear them. For example, Abacus Pitch 27.5 weighs just 250g in size large.
What weather type are you?
That may seem like a strange question but, think about it! Because, when you understand the answer, it will help you make the best decision as to what rain gear you need!
Are you a storm? Someone who will go out and play golf for hours in even the heaviest of rains? One who needs to be convinced to come in from the next tee when the lightening is crashing down?
Or, are you fair weather, sunny? You run inside at even the hint of some drizzle and don’t dare stick your head out of the clubhouse until the sun is shining and the birds are chirping? The performance and functionality that you need when choosing rain gear depends on what you plan to do while wearing it as well as the conditions your “weather type” will have you using it in.
