Best Cold Weather Gear 2022: Here’s what you need to stay warm

On those blistering cold days, you need an array of items to stay warm if you're bold enough to leave the clubhouse.


Welcome to GOLF’s 2022 edition of the Best of Everything, where we’re providing you with the, well… best of everything! Check out our picks below or browse more items in our Pro Shop.

On those blistering cold days, you need an array of items to stay warm if you’re bold enough to leave the clubhouse. Of course, a good jacket is essential — something to keep you warm without impeding your swing. You’ll also need a beanie or some sort of headwear to keep your ears warm. Finally, you have to keep your hands warm or your round is going to go down the drain pretty quickly. It’s nice to have a place to warm up your golf ball between holes, too.

So, with all of this in mind, we’ve split out this cold weather roundup accordingly. Scroll down to see our favorite outerwear, headwear and hand warmers below.
