Golfing rainwear

    Playing golf in the rain requires specialised equipment. Waterproofing, breathability and freedom of movement are the features to consider.


    Expected exposure to rain

    Light shower / short exposure (2hr) / longer, heavier downpour (4hr). For a light shower, a water-resistant material will suffice. For more intense rain, you will need waterproof clothing.

    Additional items

    For optimum waterproofing, opt for fully watertight seams, sleeve and leg fastenings, and waterproof cuffs.
    For more breathability, make sure the clothing has ventilation and a breathable lining.
    For greater freedom of movement, choose clothing with drawstrings at the waist, stretch material at the joints, and a crease in the lower leg.
