We’ve all been there; having to plough through a round with the wind whipping up your hair and twisting the golf club from your hands every time the perfect swing is being set up.

This can bring down a good game of golf, so what can you do about it? How about getting your arms (and the rest of your upper body!) into a golf windshirt! This useful buying guide will help you make the best decisions for game on the greens with helpful hints and tips on the best attires and their uses.

Windproof protection clothing

A good piece of windproof attire reduces coldness in the body and improves playability on the golf course. Here we offer some useful advice and tips for wearing windshirts and getting the most out of your clothing.

First a quick rundown of what windproof clothing is. Windproof clothing is the protective layer that keeps coldness off the skin to leave you feeling warm and comfortable. The best outdoor wind clothing should be lightweight in construction and the furthest thing from a heavy jacket. They are highly breathable attire which remains cool enough so that golfers don’t overheat and have to expose their skin to the elements – windproof clothing keeps you cool enough yet entirely snug throughout the entire day.

Windproof is not waterproof – but it’s pretty close

Windproof clothing is not waterproof, so if you play in severely wet conditions then chances are windproof attire will be ineffective and you’ll catch a cold on top of your bad mood. However, some windproof clothing is treated with Teflon to offer slight protection from rain but this is not guaranteed and should only be worn to keep warm in the cold. Windproof clothing is less expensive than waterproof clothing and will assure warmth in very cold, dry temperatures.

Windshirts also eliminate the need for wearing large, heavy or restrictive jackets on the golf course as these will weigh you down and cause unnecessary overheating. It will also make swinging golf clubs a real challenge, while windshirts are specially designed to make it easier.
