Welcome to ThinkVail – we hope you find this article about the best waterproof rain gear helpful.
No matter where you play golf, eventually you will be playing a round in foul weather. If you live here, in Vail, Colorado every day, all summer long, like clockwork, you can expect a rain shower between 2-5 pm. But storms can hit anytime, anywhere and it’s best to be prepared with waterproof golf rain gear to keep you dry, comfortable and happy.
To be prepared on the golf course, you need the following rain gear items. These items should be waterproof, not water resistant, there is a huge difference between the two. Gore-Tex is one of the best waterproof materials and it is also windproof as well. Most importantly, look for items that are comfortable and do not restrict your movements, or your golf swing.
In inclement weather, having a rain suit; jacket and pants that are made of waterproof material will go a long way in making your day more enjoyable and keeping you out on the links.
Aside from waterproof materials, look for sealed seams and wind blocking properties. Steer away from hoods. Choose rain gear that is comfortable and protects you from the elements but does not restrict your movements, or your golf swing.
