Best golf rain jackets

Look, we get you. Even if you’re not the type to be singin’ in the rain, you ARE the type to be swinging in the rain. But if your golf game is going to survive through the elements, you’ve got to do yourself a favor and first invest in some top-of-the-line golf rain gear.

Golf rain gear is tough because it has to meld elasticity with ruggedness against the elements, style with swail-stopping protection. That’s why it’s so important not just to purchase rain gear, but to purchase the right rain gear for your game. Here are five of our favorite rain jackets to help you zip up and stand out.
