Abacus Launches Summer Waterproof Collection

By: Golfshake Editor | Tue 04 Jul 2023

We all know that a British summer can throw at you that curious mix of blistering heat followed by heavy rain showers, but Abacus Sportswear has the answer for golfers, showcasing a new range of performance-driven apparel that has been designed to protect against rain, wind and cold, while also keeping you cool and comfortable when the sun comes out. 

This all-round protection is especially key when faced with the challenges of the UK climate when warm, sunny mornings can just as quickly turn into wet and windy afternoons. Which is why Abacus’s award-winning Bounce range is proving so popular with golfers, with its built-in waterproof technology enabling players to hit the links at any time of the year and in all weathers, safe in the knowledge that they will remain dry whatever Mother Nature has to throw at them.

Bounce Technology is designed with the active golfer in mind combining function, quality, and design so that the user can focus on their game. Highly waterproof and breathable, yet featuring four-way stretch, Bounce offers the ultimate in comfort and performance. Lightweight, noiseless, wrinkle-free, and easy to store in the golf bag, the Bounce range features rain suits, rain shirts, hoodies, trousers, and shorts all with water repelling technology.  

Here we take a look at three key pieces from Abacus Sportswear’s SS23 golf apparel collection that should be a part of every golfer’s wardrobe:

Abacus Sportswear


This stylish, must-have fashion piece is also packed with weather-beating technology, making it the ideal partner for golf outings at any time of the year. Featuring a water repellent treatment on the outer layer to keep the wearer dry at all times, it also boasts an inner membrane which allows body heat to escape to keep you feeling cool, and a soft inner lining for the ultimate in comfort. Four-way stretch enables complete freedom of movement, while it’s also lightweight and easily packable.

Featuring an adjustable hood and two front pockets, the Bounce Hoodie is available in a stylish dark cobalt blue or classic black for men in sizes S-XXXL, and an all-white model for ladies in XS-XXL. RRP: £149.90 (€189.90).


An essential item for any golfer who wants to remain dry without being encumbered by the restrictions of an arm-length jacket, the Bounce ½-Zip Short Sleeve Rain Shirt boasts the same 3-layer construction as the Bounce hoodie to deliver a water repellent, breathable top that also features 4-way stretch to enable the wearer to carry on swinging in the rain in complete comfort. The absence of a lining makes it easy to slip on and off, while its lightweight, wrinkle-free material makes it easy to stow away in your bag, yet still look box fresh when you’re ready to put it into action. Featuring a half zipper at the front and one chest pocket, it is available in size S-XXXL in dark cobalt with black detailing, or grey with navy detailing. RRP: £179.90 (€219.90).


Although most people only wear shorts when its warm and dry, that doesn’t mean you’re not occasionally going to get caught out by a surprise summer shower or a sudden heavy downpour.

Step forward Abacus Sportswear’s Bounce Waterproof Shorts. Designed to be worn on and off the golf course, this high-tech staple of any golfer’s wardrobe is made from a four-way stretch polyester that repels water on contact but is also highly breathable.  

This is achieved with the use of a 3-layer construction with a central membrane bonded between layers that keeps the rain out and allows for your body heat to be transported to the surface where it evaporates.  

Offering the highest levels of comfort, Bounce Waterproof Shorts feature a flexible waist band, plus two front pockets and two at the back. They are available in navy or black to match any golfing outfit, in waist sizes 28-42, and are the perfect addition to any golfer’s summer wardrobe. RRP: £119.90 (€139.90).
