First impressions

If you look a bit closer next time you’re watching golf on TV, you’ll spot Macade gear on the likes of major champion Jennifer Kupcho, as well as Garrick Higgo and Lucak Bjerregaard, who have six PGA and DP World Tour wins between them.

If you don’t know Macade, they are a Swedish golf apparel brand – or “concept”, as they describe themselves, founded by a group of sportswear designers who also happened to be avid golfers. They came with a plan to make clothing for the “new generation of golfer who wants the same precision engineering and design in their clothes as they expect in their golf clubs”. No pressure, then.

There’s something rather satisfying about how these newer, smaller companies go about their business. Everything arrives in a little box, each item neatly packaged up in recyclable zip-lock bags, and a bag of free tees thrown in is a nice touch. Everything about just receiving the package screams quality.

Macade Tech Bomber Zip

When I opened the Tech Bomber Zip golf midlayer, I was immediately taken by how nice the fabric is, and how good it looks – and I hadn’t even got it on yet.

This black quarter-zip is designed with a bomber style collar and features fine ribbing throughout the body. The soft and stretchy nature of the fabric coupled with the raglan sleeves makes for ultimate freedom of movement. A true essential for unpredictable weather, on and off the course.

I have to admit, I was apprehensive about the ribbed style. How wrong was I? It looks and feels great, and really adds to the soft and stretchy nature of the garment – and the raglan-style sleeve is perfect for the golf swing. My favourite part, though, is the bomber-style collar. A really classy touch in terms of style and comfort.

On-course testing

I was testing this on a breezy but mild autumn day, with the temperature around 12 degrees, wearing the Tech Bomber over a polo shirt, and I never at any point felt the need to add more layers – or, indeed, take it off.

It’s certainly comfortable enough to add a baselayer underneath or a jacket over the top on chillier days.

In terms of fit, I’m 6-foot-4, with a slim build and with an unnecessarily long torso. I generally wear a medium top, but I go up to large for outerwear – mainly because it’s often worn over a number of other layers and I want to make sure I’m leaving plenty of room to manoeuvre – and this was perfect for me in that sense. It’s got a really stylish feel to it and it manages to look like a slim-fit product while also offering space to avoid restricting your swing.

I don’t want to keep going on about it – but how good does it look? I might even go as far as saying this is the best midlayer I’ve ever owned – both in terms of style and substance. Thoroughly deserving of its five stars.

The 19th hole

Macade Tech Bomber Zip midlayer

It’s a midlayer, therefore it’s clearly an item of golf clothing – so you’re more likely to wear it on the course and in the clubhouse than you are down the pub with your mates. But that’s what you bought it for, isn’t it?
