adidas Golf's new Gore-Tex waterproof rain jacket was launched during the week of the Open Championship.

This full zip jacket in Gore-Tex 2-layer fabric and mesh lining provides the ultimate in waterproofing and breathability. It features a centre front storm flap, fully seam sealed, adjustable velcro cuffs, double cinch waist and hem.

It's also finished with 'adidas' performance logo to left neck and 'adidas' branding to back right shoulder.

The garment is extremely hard wearing and long lasting, easy to wash and is machine washable. They've even thrown in a lifetime limited waterproof warranty, too.

Very comfortable mesh lining, particularly warm, neat zip and seam seal, slim fit and looks the part. I have played several rounds with this jacket on since July and could not be happier with its performance.

Although it's something most waterproof jackets feature these days, as you'll see in this showcase, the adjustable velcro cuffs are a great touch by manufacturers to ensure the cuffs are as thin as possible near the wrists.

A tad noisy and whispy when swinging through the ball but that's pretty frequent when it comes to the waterproof jacket. Perhaps a little expensive at £190 when you consider that's just for the rain jacket, but it's no doubt a very classy garment that will have your playing partners in awe.
