Pair of Smart MacWet gloves

Grip on the golf club handle in damp or humid conditions is vital to avoid mishits or the shaft slipping out of your grasp.

The single, ordinary leather or synthetic glove has often proved less than ideal in the wet, while some golfers have even tried a pair of marigold washing up gloves, Others prefer no glove at all.

No wonder then, that the McSport Group has come up with a pair of Smart MacWet gloves for golfers, which the Cheshire makers claim will give you a competitive edge when conditions damp and tricky.

MacWet says its gloves are tailored from Aquatec, a unique man-made fabric that breathes to reduce perspiration and wick away water. The thin material helps feel and control when it’s dry and draws moisture from the hand when it’s wet.

The durable pair of gloves will cost £24.99. For your nearest stockist visit or call 01829 771852.

Etonic G-SOK glove

Etonic is releasing what it claims to be ‘the lightest, most comfortable and perfectly fitting glove’ – the Etonic G-Sok, costing £12.95 for one.

Made from Ethiopian Cabretta leather, it features an ‘island thumb’ design reinforced with Etonic's new Aerify lycra, providing added comfort and feel. A Dri-Sorb wristband inside the extended cuff also helps absorb moisture while locking the glove to the hand.

It will be available from June in men's Left Hand (small to XL. RRP is £12.95. For your nearest stockist visit or call 0113 387 7710.
