Golf is a game that, in its truest form, is played outdoors. And since, for the most part anyway, playing a game outdoors means unpredictability in terms of conditions (especially in Canada), it’s beneficial for Canadian golfers that some of the biggest names in golf are designing outerwear pieces that are as adaptable as the weather conditions we play in.
In order to start your season earlier or extend it even longer in Canada, a good quarter-zip pullover, vest, or jacket can become as valuable in your golf arsenal as a 56-degree wedge.
Two brands in particular – Puma and Under Armour – are taking all their learnings from being some of the top names in sporting goods and applying them to golf – for the betterment of us all.
If you’re looking for a couple of pieces to round out your wardrobe for next season (or if you’re lucky enough to be living in a place where you can still put a tee in the ground, even with the holiday season around the corner), then read on.
Puma CloudSpun STLTH ¼ Zip Pullover
The Puma CloudSpun STLTH quarter-zip takes Puma’s fabulous CloudSpun technology and applies it to a golf piece that’s breathable and flexible. It comes in three different colours (a navy blue that Puma calls ‘Peacoat,’ Puma Black, and a grey that Puma calls ‘Quiet Shade’). It’s a fashion-forward piece with a new low-profile collar, and CloudSpun fabric from Puma delivers four-way stretch, moisture-wicking properties and ultra-soft feel.
Puma CloudSpun STLTH Camo Jacket
The Puma CloudSpun STLTH also offers UV protection and is water resistant. The CloudSpun fabric really is a game-changer as a proprietary fabric to Puma – that combination of soft feel with a top-of-the-line tech effort is idyllic for Canadian golfers who demand a lot from their outerwear.
At GlobalGolf.ca there’s a strong handful of gear from Under Armour, one of the biggest names in sporting equipment, that’s perfect for Canadian golfers.
Under Armour UA Storm Midlayer ½ Zip Pullover
UA Storm technology helps to repel water without sacrificing breathability, and the loose fit provides complete comfort to its wearers. The UA Storm Midlayer boasts the UA Storm water repellence for moisture-wicking fabric that is quick drying. There’s a raised collar for additional coverage against the elements, and a dual-layer fabric that’s ultra warm.
Under Armour UA Sweater Fleece ½ Zip Pullover
Constructed with lightweight fleece, Under Armour’s Sweater Fleece also boasts UA Storm water repellence – without sacrificing breathability. Ribbed shoulder panels give golfers added comfort and stretch and the half-zip front makes for easy layering. Available in two colours, the UA Sweater Fleece is made of 100 percent polyester is offers resistance against shrinking and wrinkles.
Under Armour UA Storm Daytona Vest
An argument can be made – by me, at least – that the vest is the perfect piece of golf outerwear. Whether it’s warm, cold, or in-between, adding in a vest like the Under Armour UA Storm Daytona to your wardrobe is going to be a good decision. It features internal air pockets and insulation panels to keep the warmth in, along with double knit fleece fabric. There’s UA Storm Technology for water resistance, Coldgear technology to help you absorb and retain your body’s heat, and it comes in two basic colours to be paired with all kinds of outfits.
