The best golf layering pieces

For the well-adjusted, golf is a warm-weather sport only to be played in the most temperate months. For the rest of us, golf is a lifestyle, an addiction to be fed through whatever means (and climates) necessary. But even the hardened addicts can have their rounds turned to ruins without the right gear, particularly when the less-temperate months roll in.

When it comes to surviving cold weather on the course the goal is threefold, finding gear that’s: 1) warm yet breathable; 2) flexible to move with your swing and; 3) stylish for all shapes and sizes. These five products fit our criteria for layering like your passion for the sport, great when the weather’s good, even better when it isn’t.
