10 posts in this topic

Hi guys I'm after a layer to wear over the top of my under armour coldgear baselayer. I'm wanting a fleece type jacket ideally. Anyone help please? Cheers

I got a merino wool Polo Golf wind sweater for Christmas and the thing is awesome. It's lined to protect against wind and is not bulky at all. I usually wear it over just a short sleeve golf shirt and it keeps me warm to about 40 degrees. If it's colder than that I will put an Under Armour long sleeve compression coldgear shirt under the polo and then put the sweater on top. It works really well even in pretty cold temps.

A few different companies make versions of these lined wind sweaters. I know that FJ, Nike, and Under Armour all make them and I'm sure other companies do as well.

honestly, nothing seems to beat my Foot Joy rain suit jacket for keeping the warm inside.  The FJ jacket is the most wind-proof (which leads to me being cold!) clothing item I own.  Plus, it zips up to my chin, has velcro on arms to close that area off to wind and it's pretty lightweight and baggy enough to not restrict swinging while wearing.

Other than that, I have a couple of Nike quarter-zip mock neck shirts that are pretty thick.  I'm pretty sure they are the 'heat-gear' type material as well.  They also zip up to my chin.  So I'll wear an Under Armor heat-gear long-sleeved shirt, a Nike quarter zip (not fleece ... don't like it!) shirt zipped up over the Under Armor then my FJ rain jacket.  That usually keeps me pretty warm curing the early season cold months.

Galvin Green insula tops are fantastic, but a little on the expensive side.

Got an LL Bean waterfowler's sweater for Christmas.   It's 100% wool and though it's thicker than most of the cold weather golf gear you will see in golf stores, it doesn't impair my swing.   Our course won't open if the temps aren't at least 32*.   With that sweater, if our course is open, I can play golf and be warm.

@Golfingdad might have some good input on sweaters... especially purple ones.


Sounds like there is a story there somewhere................

Being Scottish we are a decent reference point for sweaters! I have a really good Callaway half zipper that is really warm, comfortable and moves freely. If buying on line, bear in mind that Callaway seem to make their clothing a size too big! Agree with the poster mentioning Galvin Green, but Mizuno for me also manufacture some top quality outerwear. Try it on first though. I also have a DryJoys rainsuit that has served me very well. Worth remembering too that you do get what you pay for.

Check out the galvin green layering concept on their website! I play in anything from 30* to 50* in the winter, and I can't recommend their range highly enough! It does come at a price but quality usually does, and their waterproof range has a lifetime garauntee! Which says a lot!
