TourFlex Cyclone Playing Top:
This lightweight soft shell outer layer half zip jacket comes in an engineered four-way stretchable fabric, which is windproof and water repellent. It also uses a moisture wickering technology that helps regulate your body temperature and is infused with bamboo fibres to help naturalise odours and bacteria.
The jacket uses swing silent technology, the TourFlex Cyclone material is crease resistant and comes with two pockets that use ProQuips water resistant VISLON zip technology.
ProQuip performance base layers:
The base layer acts like a second skin and helps draw moisture away from the body, which aids in regulating your skin temperature. The base layer also compresses your body muscle which in turn helps your blood flow to alleviate muscle fatigue as you get to the later stages of your round.
The mittens use a soft lightweight outer fabric that protects against wind, rain and cold, while the triple wadding helps keep your hands warm and comfortable. There is also an adjustable wristband that helps give you the best fit possible.
ProQuip Merino Wool Water Repellent Beanie
Treated with a water repellent finish that is reactivated whenever it is washed, the ProQuip Beanie uses Italian Merino Wool that is breathable, allowing perspiration to escape and has natural anti-odour properties.
Merino wool is a fine, soft fibre and has unique properties that make it perfect for playing in cold weather, while still feeling soft against your skin.
Playing links golf can throw up all sorts of weather conditions in a four hour period, to be honest all courses anywhere in the world can go through several weather conditions in a four hour period in winter and being prepared is your best form of defence, not only to protect you from the elements but so you can continue to enjoy your round.
Being prepared is the name of the game and with weather apps you can, to a point predict your day. A full weather suit is a must, but some days you won’t need to carry it. I like to wear the waterproof trousers as they also protect me from the wind and cold. Wearing a base layer and a wind/rain resistant half zip instead of a jumper is I feel the way to go.
The ProQuip apparel I tested over six links courses in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset stood up to every type of element the weather could throw at them and with constantly putting garments on and taking them off at this time of year the crease resistant material was a godsend.
I must admit some beanies make my forehead itch, but that wasn’t the case with the Merino wool beanie and with the mittens fitting perfectly over my playing glove meant my hands as well as my body were nice and toasty, all helping my concentration when I got to my golf ball and working with the different outfits I tested I was able to swing without any restrictions and enjoy my day at the office even if mother nature wasn’t enjoying hers.
