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?
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.
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.
