Rain Gloves.... not black ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know of or possibly use a rain glove that is not black in color ?

My Footjoy Rain Gloves are fine, although I often have to repair left palm...

What I want is a rain glove in white to use on those hot days where sweat is a problem.

So far I found some Zero Restriction rain gloves with white backs/black palms?

Anyone ever used this Zero Restriction rain gloves ?

Any of the synthetic gloves okay for sweaty days ???

Thanks.

As far as not wanting to sweat through and ruin your good white gloves, carry more? I rotate 5 gloves during a round so they don't go to hell from sweat. It's rather pricey to go out and get half a dozen at once but it's worth it in the longer run.

Rotating gloves is an excellent suggestion and a possibility...

but it would be expensive to add right handed gloves to usual LH gloves...

Fact is I usually play gloveless other than rain or hot weather...

The wet feeling of the thin leather gloves does not give me confidence.

Besides the Zero Restriction gloves I have found Orlimar Rain Gloves...

Orlimar Rain Gloves have a textured palm.... is that even legal ???

Powerbilt also makes a cheap rain glove but it to is black...

FootJoy seems to have cornered the market... Pro shops & Sporting Goods stores.

I play these

have about 7 of them, 2 for range and 5 for round use. One alone in the heat lasts about 5 rounds. Rotating I have played 15 rounds so far and can't hardly tell they are used.

Curious....

Do you Bionics on both L and R hand for rainy conditions ???

Never tried a Bionic on...

Do you usually go up a size because of the padding, etc?

Maybe I will hunt down a Bionic to try on...

My right gloves from Footjoy always hold up... so I have extra extra rights.

Its the left glove that always tears in palm...

Lately I have been super gluing a surgical tape 'patch' to the palm for durability.

Might try a Bionic on left... matched with Right from Footjoy.

Also didn't realize Bionic's came in multiple styles... Any preference ?

Thanks.

I only use left hand gloves. I still buy M which fit fine for me. The padding in the fingers, to me, makes me feel that the club is more secure. As far as different styles... I get the ones that are primarily white with black and blue markings offered at golf galaxy. Either they don't have others where I go or I am focused to not notice the others haha.

Well, I know I'm coming to the discussion exactly 3 years after it started....

 

Still, I'm not only wondering why black is the only color for rain gloves, but I'm also wondering why they can't be bought as singles?  That is, why do we need to buy gloves for both hands?

 

I'm using a single left hand rain glove during the summer in hot and humid Wilmington, NC to fight sweat and keep a grip on the club.  The right hand rain gloves I have to buy?  Um, I'm collecting them in a drawer....

 

Seems there would be a pretty decent market for Foot-Joy to serve in the summertime South -- make "rain gloves" in a lighter color, and sell "two packs" with two left hand gloves for 22 bucks per package. 

 

If Foot-Joy won't, will a competitor?
