Gloomy weather doesn't have to put a damper on your game when there are golf rain suits available. You can choose from Gore-tex suits, rain jackets, rain pants, whole rain suits, and even get covers for your clubs.
Where to Find Golf Rain Suits
Once you've realized that rain suits for golfing exist (if you didn't already know), you may be convinced that you need one. They're especially important for avid golfers. Where do you shop for them, though? Right online:
- Fore Rain has not only rain suits, but other waterproof items like vests, club covers, and more. They have a 30-day return policy, so if it doesn't fit or you decide you don't need it after all, you simply return the items. Please check the size chart to determine the size you need, though, to make sure you don't cause yourself the hassle of returning due to purchasing the wrong one.
- Golf Locker doesn't have tops and bottoms that can be purchased together, but they do have several individual pieces. You can build your own based on your needs and personal preferences. For example, you could wear the FootJoys Dry Joys Performance Rain Shirt in red and pair it with FootJoy Dry Joys Zip-Off Tour Collection Rain Pants in black. Several of the rain-ready pieces on this site come with a two-year waterproof warranty. In some cases, you can also get free shipping.
Accessories to Get
In addition to your waterproof suit, you will probably want to pick up the following:
- Waterproof shoes - Very important after a rain, during a rain, or simply when the course is wet because the sprinklers were on earlier
- Golf gloves - They'll help you grip the clubs when they get slick due to the rain
The Bottom Line
If you're a serious golfer, you don't want to stop just because the rain sets in. There's a waterproof suit out there for every golfer's budget, from a simple vinyl suit to a Gore-tex® one with all the bells and whistles. Make a list of all the things that are important to you (possibly in order of importance) and go through the sites above to find just the one you're looking for. You can stay dry, comfortable, and still move with ease when you want to play golf in the rain.
