Golf Base Layers
Posted by: Adam Smith on Tue 25 Oct 2011
With winter closing in the most important thing for a golfer is to keep warm whilst out on the course. This means investing in some good winter clothing. I’m a big fan of base layers so here are a few on the market that could be a vital investment for you this winter.
Footjoy Performance ProDry
The ProDry Performance Base Layer developed specifically for golf. The non-restricting construction hugs the body and fits closely to the skin to help regulate body temperature without interfering with the golfer’s swing. This is the first essential layer for cold playing conditions.
PING Collection’s Autumn/Winter 2011 range includes the ground-breaking new UnderPAR Thermal and UnderPAR Thermal Half Zip base layers. Made from 88% polyester and 12% elastane/dry fibre to increase thermal efficiency, these essential layering garments provide a much needed flexibility and performance combination desired by all golfers in cold weather conditions.
It’s the one layer athletes trust when the mercury drops. Wear it to feel warm, dry & light. In cold weather, UA’s signature “second skin” fit is proven to increase muscle efficiency and coordination, speed warm-up, and help maintain muscle temperature during rest. 7oz fabric and double-knit construction combine to create a microclimate next to the skin, keeping you warm but never overheated.
SKINS G400 golf compression wear is designed specifically to combat the stresses and strains that golf puts on the body. The garments help to ensure that all the muscles used when swinging a golf club work effectively in unison and promote a heightened sense of body movement and spatial awareness.
Adidas Thermal Golf
Made from a thermal poly-mix, the Adidas ClimaLite Thermal Compression Base Layer provides muscle warmth and endurance on those cooler days. ClimaCompression fabric is a lightweight second skin that reduces friction and optimizes muscle warmth. It also provides support, resulting in improved muscle endurance. Wicks moisture to the surface for quick evaporation.
Finished with both a contrast Adidas brand logo on left sleeve and contrast 3 stripe detail on right sleeve, the Adidas Climalite Thermal Compression Base Layer is the perfect garment for those cooler autumn/winter months offering maximum thermal protection without the need of multiple layers.
Perfect for layering the Nike Sphere Dry Men's Base Layer Golf Shirt is a design that helps keep sweat at bay while you swing your best on the course.
Galvin Green Elton
Galvin Green Golf Elton Base Layer features Skintight Compression technology, which has been specifically developed to improve circulation, enhance body posture and provide increased stamina on the golf course. The polyester and spandex fabrics, combined with the tight fit, make it exceptionally efficient in moisture management, wicking away unwanted perspiration.
Mizuno Breathe Thurmo
Mizuno Thermo fabric, this Mizuno Golf Breath Thermo Virtual Body High Neck Baselayer will keep you warm with its special function that absorbs body moisture to generate heat.
Lyle & Scott Roll Neck
Stay fresh and comfortable with this Lyle & Scott Golf Green Eagle Long-Sleeve Roll Neck, made from lightweight and comfortable cotton interlock to not only help keep you fresh and cosy but also make you look the part on the golf course.
Not neccessarily associated to golf but a golf specific base layer may not be required. We've a proven track record in extreme sports the range includes several base layers focused on warmth, dryness and comfort for all round efficency.
