For some golfers, mid-layers can feel too bulky to swing a club in. Even though modern golf sweaters and jackets are made from stretchy material so as not to restrict the golf swing, many would still rather play in a tee shirt all year round if the weather allowed it.
This is where a gilet, or vest, becomes a fantastic option. These garments tick many boxes for those who would rather not play with long sleeves.
Sound like you? You’re in the right place. Here are some of the best golf gilets for ladies on the market.
GOLFINO Berarda Gilet, RRP £149.95
This windproof, water-repellent gilet is made from durable synthetic material. The comfortable lining is made from a blended cotton fabric with good breathability. The lining keeps you cosy and warm out on the fairways but prevents an unpleasant build-up of heat around the body. The sporty design also features two closable side pockets and an inside pocket, giving the wearer plenty of room to store accessories. Meanwhile, the high collar and the impermeable two-way zip fastener offer additional wind protection.
Adidas COLD.RDY Gilet, RRP £64.99
This stylish full-zip mid-layer, made from PRIMEGREEN recycled materials, has been designed with a combination of textured herringbone and flat-knit panels. The brand’s COLD.RDY technology works by trapping heat against the body, and it’s also brushed on the inside for increased warmth and a soft feel. It has been cut to provide a regular fit and is highlighted with the Adidas badge of sport on the left lower hem.
Ping Cece Quilted Gilet, RRP £95
The stylish Cece is a lightweight vest with stretch properties that offers wind and water resistance, plus it is highly breathable for extra performance. It’s designed with a full-zip opening with front pockets and full zip opening and is reversible for a combination of distinctive styles. It comes in two colours: Navy/Aquatic and Black Multi/Black.
This lightweight style is waterproof and has been prequilted for optimal insulation. A high collar and elasticated hem help provide additional warmth and protection from the cold and wet, while the contrast chevron design creates a flattering silhouette that’ll undoubtedly make this a wardrobe favourite. In fact, this particular gilet has plenty of off-course appeal as well.
Galvin Green Lene Vest, RRP £189
Galvin’s Lene vest features INTERFACE-1™ technology. These garments are made with materials that offer optimum protection and comfort in windy conditions. The soft materials also offer high levels of breathability as well as windproof and water-repellent properties. It includes front pockets with zippers and is suitable for wear off the course as well on it.
Puma Cloudspun WRMLBL Vest, RRP £89
The Puma Cloudspun vest offers lightweight comfort and warmth due to the Primaloft gold insulation in the front and back panels. It features a full zip, zip hand pockets with soft, brushed lining and cloudspun side panels for additional comfort. The quilted detailing is a popular style.
Under Armour Storm Revo Vest, RRP £75
As the name suggests, the Storm Revo vest offers protection from the rain. The brand’s Storm technology repels water without sacrificing breathability. Meanwhile, the stretch-woven outer fabric with soft fleece lining keeps you warm without excess bulk or weight. The reflective details enhance this garment’s style, while the zip hand pockets offer the wearer a good amount of room for accessories. For those who don’t like pink, this gilet is also available in Black/Metallic Silver, which looks particularly smart.
Sunderland Tania Gilet, RRP £75
Sunderland’s Tania vest is an ultra-lightweight shell with ripstop fabric for increased weather resistance. Active smart fibre thermoregulates to climatic changes to release excess heat. It also recirculates body heat to maintain body temperature for thermal warmth. Smart and stretchy, it stands up well to rain showers and wind.
Abacus Elgin Hybrid Vest, RRP £88.95
The Elgin Hybrid vest has a seamless quilted windproof fabric that is padded at the front and back. The side panels and shoulders are made of stretchable fleece, allowing you to swing the club without feeling restricted.
