The best golf pants
The importance of trusty and comfortable golf pants cannot be overstated. As we look toward a winter season that might get pretty chilly, you’ll want to cover all your bases when it comes to your arsenal of reliable golf pants. Below, we’ve identified the five best pants you’ll need for pretty much every weather condition you’ll face.
A pair of warm pants for those winter rounds
Under Armour and cold-weather gear are two things that go hand in hand. So it’s no surprise we turn our attention to Under Armour ColdGear Infrared Showdown pants for winter-approved golf trousers. This handsome pair is lined with ColdGear Infrared coating, which absorbs and retains your own body heat to keep you extra warm without building in extra bulk. Stay toasty, make birdies.

A pair of patterned statement pants
These J.Lindeberg Archer Micro Stretch pants make a subtle statement with the racing stripe logo detailing on the side. While they’re not an all-over print, they’re still unexpected — in a good way. Pair these with a micro-print polo and your look will be 10/10.

An ultralight pair of pants to stay cool and within the dress code
These versatile Lululemon Commission Pants Slim Ventlight Mesh combine Lulu’s renowned ABC technology and proprietary Ventlight fabric to create the ultimate lightweight and stretchy pants, perfect for on or off the course. They look like your everyday chinos, but stand out on the course with their quick-dry, sweat-wicking and anti-stink properties.

A pair of rain pants that always keep you dry
Finally, a pair of rain pants that actually look and feel like normal pants! J. Lindeberg Timo Packable rain pants feature deep front and back pockets to ensure dry storage for your scorecard, phone and other golf accessories.
J. Lindeberg Timo Packable
If you’re looking to stay dry without sacrificing your flexibility, look no further than the J. Lindeberg Timo Packable rain pants. These pants fit comfortably over your normal pants to protect you from water. The pants feature concealed zip openings that give you access to your trouser pockets, side pockets and back pockets for small items, Velcro adjustments at the waistband, and zippers at the bottom of the leg to help slide the pants on and off with ease.
A pair of perfectly tailored trousers
Get rid of your baggy golf pants! A tapered trouser, the Ultimate365 Tapered pants, for example, will have you looking and swinging your best. This pair from Adidas is tried and true — they’re made with extra stretch (though they look slim, they won’t feel slim) and they’re coated in a water-repellent finish to keep you dry in dodgy weather.
Adidas Ultimate365 3 Stripes Tapered
Like the Ultimate 365 shorts, these pants will quickly arise as your go-to pair of pants for golf — and off-course activities. The slick design will help you stand out; the pants are designed to boast a tapered and slim fit and feature three stripe branding by the right pocket. The fabric has moisture-wicking abilities and UV protection to keep you dry and comfortable throughout the entire day. If you aren’t already convinced — these pants are made with recycled polyester to save resources and decrease emissions.
