Cold Weather Golf Gear
As crazy as it sounds, golf is played in most of the U.S. throughout the winter. Sure, golfers in Maine, North Dakota, and a fistful of other extreme northern states must shut it down for a few months.
But with the proper apparel (and perhaps a wee bit of Scotch), golfers almost anywhere can enjoy the pursuit of par no matter what the mercury says.
In the helping spirit of Old St. Nick, here are a few cold-weather combos from RADMOR Golf and TRUE Linkswear that will stand up to the elements in style.
RADMOR was founded and is based, in Seattle. So, you can be sure the upstart, sustainability-focused brand is all about tackling the elements. The Fall / Winter line features several new cool + cold weather pieces for doing battle with the wind, rain, and sleet.
For maximum protection and warmth, layer the Radmerino BobRad Cashmere Blend Hoodie ($225) with the Anderson Hybrid Performance Vest Multi Camo ($175). This pairing will keep you plenty toasty on the course, and RADMOR’s extended range of motion stitching ensures you’ll continue swinging freely.
For slightly warmer-but-wet weather, pair the weather-resistant Moscrip Jacket ($225) with a Higgins Hoodie ($125) made from a proprietary blend of BCI Organic Cotton and Elastane. This combo will do you right amid temps in the mid to low 40s.
A golfer is only as warm as his or her feet. Tacoma, Washington-based TRUE linkswear is the category leader in waterproof and water-resistant performance golf footwear. TRUE’s testing ground is the Pacific Northwest and its co-founder is Ryan Moore, an accomplished PGA TOUR player.
TRUE’s go-to, all-weather offering is the Original 1.2 ($170), which delivers a distinctive minimalist fit, wide toe box, and zero-drop experience. Naturally enhancing comfort and engineered for walking, the 1.2s were designed for 36-hole days in four-season climates.
TRUE just released its all-new, All Day Pants line, featuring the All Day Chino and All Day Five-Pocket editions, both retailing for $125. They are water-resistant, warm but breathable, and boast four-way stretch mobility.
Both RADMOR and TRUE are big on cold-weather apparel accessories. After all, pants, hoodies, jackets, and vests are just half the battle (well, maybe a bit more than half). RADMOR’s all-cotton RADSOCKs ($36) are mindfully made from a combo of cellulose, recycled nylon, and elastane.
TRUE’s Wool Stitched Dead Golfer Beanie ($40) keeps that all-important head warm as you play. And for golfers on a budget, or those who just want to source some killer deals, don’t forget to check out TRUE’s new Second Chance Footwear.
