April 9, 2018
If you’re a golfer, you’ll probably be very particular about the kinds of glove you like to use. You’ll know about the different grips and range of movement, and you’ll know what you prefer in different weather conditions. But if you’re looking for a special gift for the golfer in your life, you might like some suggestions for what to buy. Here we’re going to have a look at golf gloves designed specifically for playing in wet weather. Golfers themselves might pick up a few ideas here too.
Grip, is really important in golf, and when it rains that grip is affected. Ideally, wet weather golfing gloves need to help you get the best grip, as well as being breathable and flexible. They also have to be comfortable, which means that the best golf gloves need a range of features to enhance your game rather than get in the way.
Here are a few examples you might like to consider.
Surely no name of a wet weather golfing glove can be an improvement on the Bionic AquaGrip. This is a handy glove to have when the weather takes a turn for the worse. They're available from Amazon, and they have the benefit of specialist design, with fingers moulded in the rotation of needed for the player’s hand to grasp the golf club. Lycra provides just the right stretch and hold.
Also available from Amazon is the Mizuno RainFit glove. This one comes in a range of sizes, and is engineered from synthetic suede for smooth operation on a rainy day.
Now if you or your golfing friend are looking for something more visually striking, you might like to consider one of the colourful options available from Hirzl in their Trust Hybrid Plus+ range. The fabric construction here includes kangaroo leather, in vibrant orange, blue, green, or more conventional white. The improved grip on this design is intended to help in either wet or dry weather.
Not all wet weather is the same as we know. Sometimes you might be playing in cold and wet conditions, but in other climates around the world, humidity is a big problem. That’s why you need decent airflow as well as coverage. MacWet Micromesh Short Cuff is a perfect glove for handling high humidity situations, as well as rainfall. The fitting can be adjusted, and the body of the glove is made from mesh and elastane to create the perfect fit.
Finally, how about a glove that looks stylish as well as offering fantastic performance for a round of golf in rainfall. FootJoy Rain-Grip Xtreme is a two-tone black and grey offering, technologically engineered to improve grip on a wet day.
