Finally winter is fading away and spring is coming. The snow has melted, for now, and I’m able to get back out on the course here. I’ve had quite a backlog of golf reviews to do, products which have been patiently waiting for the snow to melt and the courses to open. Time to get on it.
Cross Golf Pro Jacket
I’ve had the great pleasure of enjoying a fabulous golf outerwear item from Cross Golf. Cross Golf is an industry leader in Sweden. The jacket I’ve been testing is called the “Pro Jacket.” I guess since I’m wearing it, I can now call myself a “pro.” Lets take a look at the Cross Golf Pro Jacket.
There are several layers in the Pro Jacket. The outer layer or shell is made of 100% polyester. An inner “membrane” for insulation is made of 100% polyurethane. The inner lining is 100% polyester. Pockets and crucial parts of the inner area of the jacket are lined with fleece for comfort and warmth.
There are several well thought out and well implemented functions in the Pro Jacket. Obviously the jacket is great in terms of being weatherproof and wind resistant.
The collar is adjustable, great for times when it is raining or windy. Just tighten up the collar and keep the elements out. Keeping the neck warm and dry is very important. See photo:
The same adjustability applies to the bottom of the jacket. Keeping out the elements is easy when cinching down the bottom.
Velcro straps allow the wearer to seal out the elements from finding their way in through the end of the sleeves.
The front zipper has a coating on it which keeps the wind from blowing through the front of the garment as well as keeping water out.
The pockets, as mentioned, are fleece lined which is great for warming up the hands and protecting personal items.
There is also a “security” pocket in the inside chest area which is practically hidden and not easily seen. The security pocket is vertically aligned with the zipper. Photo:
The Swedes know their style and the Cross Golf Pro Jacket has plenty of it. This is a very classy and stylish jacket with a great cut and stylish design. Even my not- so-girlish figure is complemented by the Pro Jacket.
The comfort of this jacket is amazing. The inner lining is extremely soft and smooth. The sleeves are very comfortable.
The jacket is luxurious and moves freely through the entire golf swing without binding or restricting any movement.
The Pro Jacket is available in six colors: Scarlet Red (pictured), Dazzling Blue, Black, Flare Blue, Patriot Blue, Light Gray Melange.
Sizes range from small to triple extra-large.
At $285, this is not an inexpensive golf jacket. Many say “you get what you pay for” and nothing could be more true in the case of the Cross Golf Pro Jacket. The style, fit, performance, weatherproofing, and comfort are all best in class. The comfort level is so high with this garment, I wear it whenever I can, not just on the golf course.
