Abacus launches Lanark windproof outerwear

Swedish apparel brand Abacus Sportswear has introduced two new outerwear pieces for windy conditions.

The all-new Lanark Stretch Wind Jacket and Lanark Stretch Wind Shirt are packed with technical features that allow golfers to stay focused on their golf no matter what weather they encounter.

“The most important thing for windproof golfwear is that it doesn’t adversely impact the golf swing, resulting in a lack of, or restricted movement,” said Chris Mattsson, design manager at Abacus. “A high amount of stretch in a lightweight material is vital to preventing this from occurring, which is exactly what is offered in both the Lanark jacket and wind shirt. Feeling comfortable and being able to maintain the optimum body temperature inside a wind garment is also incredibly important. Key to this is using a fabric with high wicking properties that quickly moves the moisture generated by the body away from the surface of the skin to the outside of the garment keeping the golfer dry from the inside, while preventing the wind from getting in.”

The long-sleeve Lanark Stretch Wind Jacket (RRP £79.90) is lightweight and designed to tuck in your golf bag. It offers 100% wind protection without adding bulk, with its stretchable, recycled polyester material enabling an unrestricted swing with zero billowing. Features include a zipped chest pocket and elastic bindings at the sleeve and body hem, and the jacket is available in black with an orange contrast or navy blue with a silver contrast for men, and navy/peony for women.

Meanwhile, the short-sleeve Lanark Stretch Wind Shirt (RRP £73.90) boasts the same technical features and is available in white/navy or grey/white for men, and violet/white or white/navy for women.
