I have never really had "rain gear" other than a short sleeve pullover that I was given. I have a chance to get Foot Joy stuff at 50% off, but I am not sure how to size the stuff. We have a local Dick's but the last time I was in there, the selection was VERY limited on rain gear and I am sure it doesn't all fit the same. Any suggestions? Should I just try on what Dick's has and go by that, even if it is a different brand?

I would suggest verifying the size in some way first if you are unable to try it on.  I ended up buying a mis-matched size raingear of a different brand with the top being my normal jacket size, but the bottom a size smaller.

I just tried on a Footjoy rain jacket and then ordered the Footjoy wind shirt in s/s that sized the exact same way. The wind shirt is water repellent and did very well the other day. I am a large all day long in T-shirts, golf polos (Greg Norman, UA, Nike, Ashworth) and the large in Footjoy was perfect. The Adidas was an XL. I cannot help you with the pants but the tops were perfect.

How can we all get 50% off? Hook a brother up!

Yeah, I have looked at the size charts but my worry is, should I size up some considering the gear will be worn over my regular golf clothing?

That's good to know. Thanks. Haha. I hear you on the hookup. I have an extended connection so I'm not sure I'd be a good hookup

I see that there are drawstrings and size adjustments on the pants, so maybe my post was a bit premature. I was mainly concerned about it being worn over existing clothing and the size. Thanks guys!

The Footjoy rain pants are huge. Not a good fit in my opinion. 

Things like this are why I initially brought the question up. I have nowhere to try these on. I spoke with FootJoy and they stated that you buy according to your normal waist size but that those sizes are made with the assumption that they are going over the top of your golf clothing and are sized a bit bigger

I am 6’1 and the large would fit someone 6’5. For the price I did not like the fit or frumpy look.  What other brands are you looking into? 

@TN94z check out Linksoul. I ended up buying the rain pants and jacket in large. They have adjustable length with buttons inside to make shorter, draw string and a zip fly you know just in case nature calls without having to pull down. I am a fan.

As someone who plays roughly 6 month of the year with rain gear I feel qualified to say, most, if not all rain gear is an enormous struggle to fit. 
 

Let’s start with pants. They are ALWAYS too long with a waist that is not matching, usually too small. Foot-Joys pants are lousy elastic in the waist and I have to wear a clip at the bottom to avoid dragging my pants all over the golf course. Nike has the best in my opinion. Sizing is easier and not ridiculously long length. 
 

Jackets rarely offer much “give”. Most are hard to swing in. I have purchased the $250 top of the line, same problem. I recommend undersizing as many of the good brands will do a fair amount of stretching. Foot-Joy when undersized is good, also I like Nike undersized also. Nike has quite a bit of give and is the best in my opinion.  I also have an Under Armour that gives nicely too. 
 

I don’t like pullovers but that is probably personal preference. Hard to get on and off easily. Don’t get me started on zippers. Foot-Joy has nice zippers, everyone skimps there and it is the first place the jacket begins to break down.

@mchepp I agree. Rain gear is a pain in the ass to fit length wise for pants and Jackets pure preference zip or pullover. Not sure I agree about the undersize in jackets. Undersize could equal shorter arm length on jacket or pullover.

I'd like to stick with FootJoy because of the discount. We don't play in the rain much but I am about to the point where I want to play some competitive rounds again and I want something just in case. This was a cheap way to accomplish that.

So undersizing in Foot Joy, I normally wear a 34 waist. Their medium is 32-34 with a 31 inseam (I normally wear 30 inseam). Are you guys saying I should go with a small?

If you stay with Footjoy stay with the medium. It will likely be a bit long, but the elastic is so bad better to go with the proper sizing.

I actually found an old pair of rain pants at the house. So I may just buy a jacket only and use the pants that I have. i don't play in rain very often but I thought it would be a good idea to grab the gear while it was cheap.

    • Day 2 Week 5 Worked on 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 irons. Focus on that 3/4 swing and correct grip.  Finished up the session with my Driver 
    • I play local sports podcasts on a Bluetooth speaker in my cart, but only when playing by myself (which I usually do) or with my family for whom I know it doesn’t bother.
    • Weird Science, bogey. This movie is just dumb, and only nostalgia keeps this from being a double or worse. Additionally, the fact that it's like 80 minutes helps. At least it's over quickly.
    • I enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
    • I had a couple of rounds with one 6. Generally a three-putt by on par 5...even my best round was even par (everything was “on” that day), I had one birdie, one bogey on a par 5, with 16 pars the No-Sixes round is my white whale
