7 Best Cold Weather Golf Gear to Keep You Warm

Do you ever get the winter time blues? When the weather gets colder, and snow and ice keep you inside, does it just drive you crazy?

​Wouldn't you rather be out on the golf course, playing 18 holes with your buddies instead of shoveling out your driveway? If only there was a way that was possible...

But wait, there is! The answer you are looking for is cold weather golf gear, golfing equipment made to withstand the weather!​

With a wide assortment of clothing and gear to keep you warm on the course, staying in for the winter is a thing of the past! Now it is possible to hit the links even if the course is covered in a blanket of snow.

Before you head out, however, there are some very important things to consider. And when sub-zero temperatures are involved, the more you know, the better.

For starters, not just any winter clothing qualifies as "winter golf gear", as bulky winter coats and boots can make it hard for a golfer to move. You will want to look for gear that can not only keep you warm, but allows you to move around more freely as well so as to not hinder your game.

The same is true for winter golf gloves as well. Regular winter gloves are great to keep you warm, but are also bulky and will affect your grip on the club, so you will want to buy gloves that allow for both warmth and grip.

Also, in addition to your normal clothes and jacket, you may want to consider buying a compression layer of clothing. This third layer of clothing is skin tight, and provides warmth while also stretching and moving with the user, making it great for winter golf sessions.

It goes without saying that there is a lot of gear out there to help a golfer in the colder months, so that is why we are making this list today. Here is our list of, head to toe, the best cold weather golf gear.


Best Cold Weather Golf Gear

Tesla Heat Gear Compression Baselayer

We start our list today with likely the first layer of clothing that you will be putting on, the compression layer.

With the Tesla Compression Under Base Layer, you will not only get a great set of clothing, but an affordable one as well.

The Tesla is designed to fit snugly to your body without restricting your movement, keeping you warm while keeping you active.

The material is also designed to absorb and diffuse water, making sure that you stay nice and dry as well.

Tesla not only gives you a great compression layer, but does so without breaking the bank. While there are other, more well-known brands of compression clothing out there such as Under Armour, Tesla manages to give you the same benefits, and only at a price from as low as $9.

The only major drawback to the Tesla Base Layer is that you will likely have to order a size bigger. The Tesla tends to run a bit small, which may be uncomfortable in a product that is designed to be skin tight.

With a price that can't be beat, the Tesla is great choice of clothing for any golfers. Able to keep the player dry and warm while allowing them all the movement they could want, the Tesla is a great buy.

Things We Liked

  • Ultra-light

Adidas Golf Fall Weight Pant

Moving on now to some golf pants made for winter, we have the Adidas Golf Fall Weight Pant. And as is the case with most stuff Adidas puts out, these pants are a cut above the rest.

Made of warm polyester material, these golf pants are designed to keep the golfer nice and toasty by keeping them not only warm, but dry as well. With an elastic band on the inside of the waist, these pants also help to keep your shirt tucked into place, so as to prevent it from sliding up your back while playing and freezing you.

These Adidas pants are also great while playing as well. The pants are designed to shift and move with the player without sacrificing warmth, to help a winter golfer play more efficiently.

As nice as these pants are, they are going to cost you a bit of money. With some of the larger sizes running near the $90 mark, the price tag of the Adidas pants may be too much for some.

That little bit of extra coin is nothing when compared to how warm and comfortable you will feel on the golf course. With the Adidas Golf Fall Weight Pants, you are certain to get more than your money's worth.

Things We Liked

  • Made to keep you warm and dry
  • Designed to shift and move with you

Things We Didn't Like

  • Relatively expensive

Adidas Golf A74 Performance 1/2-Zip Training Top

So you may be asking yourself: "What would go great with that pair of Adidas pants you were just talking about?"

Well, how about an Adidas shirt, or to be more exact, the Adidas Golf Men's Performance Training Top.

Made of the same polyester material as the pants, the Training Top is designed to keep you warm while also being lightweight.

This allows a golfer all the range of movement they could want, making this great winter weather golf gear.

On or off the course, this top is sure to turn some heads all around town. Being very stylish, you will look great in the Training Top if you are sinking puts or buying groceries.

The Adidas Training Top may look great, but it is not a great combatant to use against the rain, as the material is not waterproof. While it may get you a bit wet in the rain, the material does dry quick, making it perfect for golfing in the snow.

Yet another great product by Adidas that makes our list today, the Performance Training Top is everything you could want from cold weather gear. With this top and the pants in our previous entry, you will have a set of winter golf clothes that you can tee off in and look great doing so!

Things We Liked

  • Lightweight
  • Provides great range of motion
  • Moisture-wicking
  • Stylish

Things We Didn't Like

  • Not suitable in the rain

Titelist Winter Stocking Hat

If you are in the market for the best winter golf hat, then not just any old hat will do. For this, you need the help of a golf giant, so we bring you the Winter Stocking Hat from Titelist!

Made of 100% acrylic material, the Winter Stocking hat has the look and feel of even the warmest of knitted beanies. This hat will keep your head and ears nice and warm, allowing you to focus on the task at hand: playing some golf.

If you are like me and happen to have a head that is a bit large, then you can rest assured that the Titelist hat will likely fit you, as the hat is designed to fit almost every shape and size of head. And with the hats contrasting red and black colors, you not only get a hat that feels great, but looks great as well.

Depending on your personal budget, the Winter Stocking Hat may run a bit expensive at around $20. While not nearly as pricey as some other options available, the price may not fit everyone's needs.

Granted, if you are willing to spend the money, you likely won't disappointed, as the Titelist Winter Stocking Hat is one of the warmest and most comfortable winter golf hats available.

Things We Liked

  • ​100% acrylic material

WenVen Men's Winter Windbreaker Thicken Jacket

At this point in our list, we have covered you nearly head to toe, but so far one piece of winter weather gear has been missing: the jacket.

But don't you fret, as we are not only about to present you with a jacket, but one that is great for some winter golfing with the WenVen Winter Windbreaker Thicken Jacket.

While WenVen is not exactly known for its golf gear, this jacket is perfect for golf.

wenven-mens-winter-windbreaker-thicken-jacket

This jacket is designed with sports in mind, no matter if it is golfing or hiking, and as a result is very lightweight and flexible, able to move with the user.

This jacket is really warm too, made of 100% cotton just like your favorite pair of socks. The design of the jacket was also made with style in mind, so that the wearer would feel right in place on the golf course or at the office.

Much like the Tesla compression layer mentioned above, the main complaint of the WenVen jacket is that sizes tend to run a bit small. As result, you may want to look for one of these jackets in a size larger than you may normally wear.

All in all, the WenVen Winter Windbreaker is a winter golf jacket that does everything one would want it to. Breathability, warmth, and style, what's not to love with the WenVen?

HJ Winter Xtreme Golf Glove

Our next piece of winter golf gear for today is probably one of the most important: the winter golf glove.

For this, you don't want just any ordinary winter glove, but one that can allow your hand the grip they need to golf effectively, and the HJ Glove winter golf gloves do just that.

The HJ Glove is designed with a "HexaGrip" silicone reinforced palm, which provides players with the best grip possible.

Even when the conditions get cold and wet, these gloves assure that you will not lose your grip, giving you the best and most accurate shots possible.

This grip support does not make the warmth of the glove suffer either. Designed with weather proof, "ThermoTex" fleece and with extra-long cuffs, these gloves completely cover your hand and wrist, keeping both dry and warm in the harshest of conditions.

There really are not many complaints against the HJ Glove's aside from a few stray stitching issues. Sometimes small threads can come undone on the glove, which may be annoying, but in no way compromises the durability or warmth of these gloves.

If you want to keep your hands warm but still want to be able to make solid shots, even in a blizzard, then you can do no wrong with the Black Winter Xtreme Golf Glove!

Things We Liked

  • Provides great grip for accurate shots
  • Material keeps your hand dry and warm
  • Extra long cuff provides added warmth and protection

Things We Didn't Like

  • A few stray stitching issues

Vivobarefoot Linx Golf Shoe

Vivobarefoot designs all their golf shoes to be fairly thin.

The mere fact they have made a golf shoe as thin as this, that is fully water and winter proof is truly astounding. It almost sounds too good to be true.

With an attractive design, and a thin tread, you can still feel the ground, which as mentioned above is integral in a round of golf.

vivobarefoot-linx-golf-shoe

Despite the thin, lightweight design they still offer a huge amount of warmth and comfort, due to the thermal protections. They come in a variety of colours and are also fully flexible, allowing for a versatile shot.

All in all, the Vivobarefoot Linx Golf Shoe is super thin and lightweight, but still offers warmth, comfort and ultimate flexibility for a perfect shot. Not to mention, it looks pretty damn attractive compared to the bulky designs of winter golf boots.

Things We Liked

  • Thin and lightweight compared to other winter golf shoes
  • Provides warmth and comfot
  • Very attractive

Things We Didn't Like

  • Grip not as strong as normal spikes
