Premium golf apparel brand Abacus Sportwear’s latest collection has not only set a new standard in performance and design but its Pitch waterproof jacket – featuring ground-breaking 37.5 Technology – has scooped a prestigious Editor’s Choice Award from leading UK golf magazine Today’s Golfer.

Recently awarded Most Packable Rain Gear by US magazine, Golf Digest, the Pitch jacket was found by a panel of Today’s Golfer equipment editors to be incredibly lightweight and versatile, showed an extremely high level of stretchability – essential in the golf swing – and a surprisingly small pack down-size, ideal for stowing in the golf bag.

It’s 37.5 Technology provides a unique and highly innovative breakthrough in material science that helps keep the body at the ideal core temperature – 37.5 degrees Celsius – so that wearers can perform at their best in all conditions. 

37.5 Technology is permanently embedded in the material and therefore works for the lifetime of the garment creating conditions that reduce sweating and any moisture that is created is removed entirely from the clothing rather than simply moving it to the surface.


Made from lightweight and highly breathable polyester, the Pitch 37.5 Rain Jacket features 37.5 Technology to ensure the wearer remains warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot, while a water-repellent treatment on the outside of the fabric that enables rain to roll off the surface to keep the wearer dry.

Four-way stretch delivers an unrestricted swing, while the jacket’s lower sleeve features extra elastic to keep it from flapping and a drawstring at the back of the neck allows for easy adjustment for a perfect fit. A rubber anti-slip print on the shoulders helps keep your golf bag strap in place when carrying.Offered in grey, sky blue, black and midnight navy, in sizes S-XXXL for men and women, the Pitch 37.5 Rain Jacket has an RRP of £249.


Made from the same material as the jacket, and featuring the same performance features, the Pitch 37.5 waterproof trousers are lightweight and high breathable, ensuring the lower half of your body remains dry and at the perfect temperature in all weathers. Four-way stretch offers complete freedom of movement, while the lower legs have side zippers for easy removal. Two side pockets, an adjustable Velcro waistband with pop button, and a zippered fly, complete the package.

Offered in midnight navy or black, they have an RRP of £199.
