For some golfers the start of autumn signals the time of year when the golf clubs are stowed back into the depths of the garage again, not to return until long past Christmas when the temperatures start to rise and the evenings begin to lengthen again.
But sporting equipment giant Adidas has decided that they want to tackle this issue head-on, by releasing a new Frostguard collection of jackets and vests for both men and women. The brand says that this range has been designed to 'extend their golf seasons during the colder months of the year'.
Frostguard has been developed to perform even in the toughest conditions to keep golfers focused on their game rather than distracted by inadequate clothing.
Down-filled panels on the front and back body of the jacket and vest are designed to provide warmth in the most important areas without feeling bulky or immobile.
Nobody likes noisy, rustling waterproofs however, so Adidas that their knitted side panels and sleeves are nice and quiet whilst also being nonrestrictive to swing in. The panels are water-resistant to help keep golfers dry if they are caught in a shower out on the course.
The Frostguard collection comes in a men's (£129.95) and women's (£109.95) jacket and vest (£109.95/£89.95), and can easily be combined with Adidas' other layering options if required as the temperatures begin to drop.
