Best golf waterproofs 2019: Abacus Pitch 37.5

Best waterproofs 2019

I hadn’t had any experience of Abacus apparel before and I was particularly keen given the Solheim Cup connection. The Pitch 37.5 rain jacket has no straps on the cuffs but the sleeves are elasticated and even have extra elastic on the forearm to keep it in place throughout your swing. It’s comfortable and I really like the style – I tried it in blue and black. It’s lightweight and the fit is slim which I like. It made it more comfortable and allowed me to swing without feeling restricted. It also gives the option to adjust on both sides so there will be a fit for everyone. In what I would call the middle price range, it’s definitely one I’d recommend.

Best golf waterproofs 2019: Adidas Climaproof

Best waterproofs 2019

Although it’s not the lightest of the waterproofs I tried, it’s not so heavy that it impacts performance. It kept me dry throughout the rounds I played and the slight extra weight kept me nice and snug. The length was good although it was a little big around the chest and waist. However, the adjustable elastic waist did make up for this to an extent. It has two nicely sized pockets at the front which I like and comes in an array of colours. Overall, it’s a solid offering from Adidas. It ticks all the boxes you’d need from a waterproof and won’t break the bank. The fit wasn’t ideal but that’s fairly common for me sadly.

Style: 3
Comfort: 3
Performance: 4

Price: £129.95

Best golf waterproofs 2019: Callaway Stormguard

Best waterproofs 2019

When I think of Callaway, I think of great clubs. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I took the Stormguard out on a rainy day in Leeds. Normally I struggle to find a waterproof that is long enough without being too loose in the chest but this jacket delivered. If anything it was almost too long. It’s not as light as some of the others I tested but it boasts a nice wool lining on the inside of the neck and a stretchy fabric on the cuff making it one of the more comfortable and definitely one of the warmest. If you want to make sure you stay warm as well as dry over winter, you could do worse than pick up one of these.

Best golf waterproofs 2019: FootJoy HydroKnit

Best waterproofs 2019

I love this from FootJoy. The material and cuffs feel so comfortable as soon as you put it on, it fits very well and it’s waterproof. Since I’ve had the HydroKnit, it’s become my go-to jacket. There is also a good amount of stretch in the fabric which further adds to what is already superb performance. And unlike the Hydrolite, I love the style. Although I have both in navy blue and green, the green is much less prominent and in my opinion, looks far better. The only downside for me is the lack of pockets. I do like front pockets but it’s a small price to pay for what is a great jacket. Well worth the money.

Style: 5
Comfort: 5
Performance: 4

Price: £180
