With winter just around the corner in the UK, we’ve teamed up with the luxury Swedish golf apparel brand Abacus to give away an award-winning Pitch 37.5 waterproof suit worth £448.
The Pitch 37.5 is one of the best waterproof jackets available thanks to technology developed by American Dr Gregory Haggquist. The photophysical chemist and inventor’s goal was to find a way of keeping the body’s core temperature at an optimal 37.5°C.
Haggquist embedded volcanic sand within fabric which absorbs infrared light emitted by the human body. The fabric then uses the levels of light to decide whether the body is too hot or cold: the porous particles retain heat if the body is too cool and no moisture is present, or remove moisture and cool you down when the body starts to warm.
It’s all very clever stuff and explains why the Pitch 37.5 was featured among our Editor’s Choice Awards winners this year.
We’ve been wearing the Abacus Pitch 37.5 jacket (worth £249) for the last year and it’s one of the best-fitting, most comfortable and versatile waterproof jackets we’ve tested. We love the elastic cuffs which do away with bulky fasteners. We love the anti-slip shoulders which keep your golf bag securely in place when carrying. And we love the soft, stretchy fabric.
Our lucky winner will love it too, and they’ll have the opportunity to choose between four colorways and receive a matching pair of Pitch 37.5 waterproof trousers, worth £199.
