Hiking the golf course
Lululemon released a hiking collection, here's which pieces will work on the golf course
Lululemon unveiled its brand new collection of hiking gear designed for the outdoorsy, fresh air-loving adventurer of all skill levels. And, with adaptable, convertible, packable, and highly wearable pieces, it’s ideal for the golf- and style-enthusiast who wants attire that works for every kind of activity and lifestyle.

Products range from pullovers to socks to water bottles (which are double-layered to remain sweat-free as well as leak-proof and lined with “no-flavor transfer” technology) and work for a wide range of climates and playing conditions. Some pieces we’re particularly excited about for golf include the “Convertible Hike Bucket Hat” which features a removable wind-gaiter to protect the back of the neck as well as a detachable face mask. It’s also adjustable, so perfect for heads of all shapes and sizes, as well as water-resistant, wind-proof, and sweat-wicking. In two woodsy shades (with mint accents), the hat also features reflective detailing for added safety (though it doesn’t hurt the style factor either).

The Convertible Hike Bucket hat isn't currently on the lululemon website, but we'll keep an eye out for when it becomes available. Here are a few similar options for those looking for the perfect bucket to top off their hike-inspired look.
In the outer wear department, the “Water-Repellent Hiking Short Sleeve” and the “Grid Fleece Hiking Overshirt” feature a snazzy (but cool) color-blocked design that accentuates the large (and water-repellent) pockets—perfect for stray tees and golf pencils. The overshirt’s hand pockets even include a hidden phone sleeve so you can enjoy some technology-detoxing in nature but rest-assured that the ether is closeby if needed.
And if you’re in the market for a convertible, the “Convertible Ripstop Hiking Jacket,” which comes in an easy sage, chestnut, or onyx hue, features zip off sleeves for temperature control, as well as a stowable hood for those surprise mid-round showers. The kicker? A built-in shoulder bag can zip around the front for a practical and trendy look.
Similarly, the capsule includes convertible pants-to-shorts and joggers—perfect if the weather promises to run the gamut from cool to humid and from sun to rain. And in case you’re unsure whether or not you’ll hit the pool (or the lake, or the beach, should your course be so favorably-located) after hitting the links, the “Hike to Swim Short 6”" comes in a trippy pastel hue. Don’t feel like wearing it on the course? It dries fast and packs small, so you might as well throw it in your bag.

More lululemon Women's Hiking Jackets for Golf
One final shoutout goes to the “Multi-Pocket Cargo HR Hiking Skirt,” which is (at long last) a stretchy, water-repellant (but still nice feeling!) skirt dripping with pockets, so versatile, the piece brings new meaning to a fit that works on and off the course.
