Best Vests For Golf

When it comes to layering, it’s important that each piece works concurrently. Top layers need to be just as breathable and moisture-wicking as those next to the skin. Additionally, this layer dictates mobility. A high level of stretch is important to cater to the golf swing, but it must also retain shape to avoid catching or bunching. The Fairway & Greene Caves 1/4 vest has all the athletic elements necessary in an upscale package. The quick-dry fabric will keep you warm and add style to any outfit. It’s a necessary staple in any golfer’s closet and comes in a variety of colors.

For a more athletic feel, the Nike AeroLoft vest is a great all-weather option with modern styling. The outer shell is quiet to avoid that annoying swishy sound, and the water-repellent polyester fabric will keep you dry. It’s got ventilation in all the right places to add breathability, and a lightweight construction keeps the body warm without adding weight. The stylish blade collar lays flat against the neck for additional warmth and comfort, and the full-zip design allows for an easy, quick change if the conditions shift. It’s also got a bold, contrasting yellow liner.
