Yet even though Britain and Ireland spend half the golfing year in freezing, wet conditions, this one came from warm and sunny America. From Apple in fact. That’s Keith Apple, general manager golf of Mobile Warming Gear who has come up with a collection of waterproof, heated golf jackets.
The 100% waterproof jacket is wired up with heating coils that run off a tiny rechargeable 7.4-volt lithium battery that will last 10 hours at the lowest heat, the same as it takes to play a round of golf these days.
I know what you’re thinking, you can’t trust anything Apple says in relation to batteries but at half the price of an iphone, $200 for the jacket it seems a winner.
