2017 Golf Windshirts

As an outdoor sport, golf is constantly exposing players to the elements; so, it’s good to be prepared for cold and windy weather. This buying guide gives you all the information you need to know about staying warm and comfortable on the golf course by wearing windshirts.


Windshirts for golf

Windshirts are much lighter than waterproof jackets, and easier to manoeuvre in than golf sweaters.

Windshirts are made with modern technologies that work in conjunction with the body to keep players warm on cold days, dry on rainy days, and cool on warm days. This is achieved by using materials that regulate warmth around the body while staying in line with a players’ body temperature.

The Palm Grove Panelled 1/4 Zip Windshirt and Palm Grove Block 1/4 Zip Windshirt are both amazingly styled and ideal for a round of golf this autumn/winter.

Windshirt fitting

Windshirts come in all shapes and sizes, from loose-fitting to snug. And, although players can wear any type of windshirt on the greens, baggier windshirts offer more swing movement, while tighter-fitting attires have a more athletic look and feel.

Short-sleeve and vest windshirts are more popular during the warmer seasons of the year. They still keep the wind off a player, but offer no protection for the arms. The FootJoy Chill-Out Spun Vest, PING Remus Vest, Calvin Klein Tier 1/2 Zip Vest, Calvin Klein Ladies Gilet, Daily Sports Normie Ladies Gillet, GOLFINO Padded Ladies Gilet, Green Lamb Jenny Ladies Gilet, Oscar Jacobson Gregory Pin Gilet, Under Armour Hybrid Junior Vest, Palm Grove Short Sleeve Windshirt, Galvin Green Bolt WINDSTOPPER® Jacket, Stuburt Urban Fleece Gilet, Nike Golf Aeroloft Combo Ladies Vest and FootJoy Softshell Vest are some of the best short-sleeve windshirts available today.


Long-sleeve, jacket or jumper windshirts are widely worn both on and off the golf course, and come in a variety of designs. Some of these windshirts have waterproof capabilities, but the main focus of these attires is to keep the player warm and comfortable during their game. The Nike Golf Dri-Fit Windshirt, Calvin Klein Interstellar Tech Windshirt, adidas Golf Competition Stretch Windshirt, Lyle & Scott Huntley Windshirt, Green Lamb Jeanette Ladies Jacket, adidas Golf Club Vest, Daily Sports Leja Ladies Windshirt, Galvin Green Dwayne Sweater, Callaway Golf Full Zip Ladies Wind Jacket, PUMA Golf Colourblock Ladies Windshirt, FootJoy Chill Out Sweater, FootJoy Performance Windshirt, Galvin Green Bart WINDSTOPPER® Jacket and Callaway Golf Block Thermal Jacket are some of the very best windshirts for 2017, and should be considered for outdoor sport, especially golf.

Windshirt Weight

The one thing which should be avoided when buying any sportswear is picking up something that’s too heavy for comfort. A thick coat will only hinder progress, while a golfing windshirt can keep players warm and comfortable without the weight. Although keeping the cold off is all-important, there needs to be a balance; a lightweight garment packed with technologies is the best path to take.

Windshirt layering

The rapid advancements in technology design means that classic windshirts are now enough to keep a player entirely warm on the golf course. Layering up with a golf jacket can work out well if both are lightweight in construction, and modern fibres now help to wick moisture away from the skin to keep players feeling cool, dry and comfortable from first tee to last. The windproof jacket can be used as an outer or mid-layer depending on the fit of the garment, and the weather conditions being faced by the player.
