  • Part of the things I dislike about golf is that when you live in a climate like the west coast of BC, you cannot expect a lot of non-rainy days, so if you are going to spend any time outside at all, you have to have the right rain gear
  • I have all the best wet weather running gear already, but for golf, such clothing is not exactly appropriate because golfers need to dress well, despite the weather
  • I recommend Nike Storm-Fit Elite to anyone who doesn’t let rain stop them from golfing

      Part of the things I dislike about golf is that when you live in a climate like the west coast of BC, you cannot expect a lot of non-rainy days, so if you are going to spend any time outside at all, you have to have the right rain gear. I have all the best wet weather running gear already, but for golf, such clothing is not exactly appropriate because golfers need to dress well, despite the weather. I guess I complained once to often about the rain and cancelled golf games too many times, because one of the gifts I received for Christmas from my husband was the Nike Storm-Fit Elite. This golf jacket

      is made for rain, so now I have no more excuses to cancel a golf day. I had a few opportunities to test out just how waterproof and practical this jacket is. I have to admit that for rain gear, it is nice-looking because it is fitted and red, and I didn’t have long to wait to find out how well it would keep me dry.

      I went golfing twice over the holidays. The nice thing about living on the west coast is that it usually doesn’t get a lot of snow and cold temperatures, but it makes up for this by raining almost constantly during the winter months. The first day we planned to ...


      • get out and do nine holes looked promising, with just a few sprinkles, but by the second hole, it was pouring. This jacket really worked. It worked as well as my dry-all layers for running, and it did not soak through even after 2 hours of steady rain. This jacket really is waterproof, not just water resistant. It also breathes, so I was able to stay dry from sweat too. It seemed to act as a barrier to the wind a bit, too. I do think that this jacket is a good addition to your golf wardrobe, if you live in a rainy place. It is pricey (my husband paid nearly $300), but the fabric
        is not going to wear out anytime soon, so it will last for years.

        Some of the features according to the information that came with the jacket:

        -The jacket has bonded seams, instead of stitches, so the water cannot seep through the fabric.

        -There are polyester and laminate layers that keep the water out, but allow the layer closest to the skin to breath.

        -The fabric is designed to whisk away sweat.

        -The neck of the jacket is high, almost as high as a turtleneck, so it kept my whole upper body warm.

        I recommend Nike Storm-Fit Elite to anyone who doesn’t let rain stop them from golfing. Nike also makes a Storm-Fit Elite golf pants. These are available at most golf stores.
