In for review is a new 2018 Sun Mountain Hybrid Vest. I’ve just started putting this vest through the rigorous Hooked on Golf Blog test battery so I’ll post my full review later this spring after I’ve had a chance to evaluate it on a real-deal golf course.

The Hybrid Vest comes in four colors: blue, black, light gray, dark gray.

The vest design provides thermal properties as well as wind resistance, while stretching with the golfer’s movement and providing quiet comfort.

I have a minor problem due to my vest’s blue color and my college football affiliation being red, definitely not blue. But the vest is so super comfortable that I’ll have to take my chances being spotted by fellow non-blue-wearers.

Stay tuned for the full review after the snow here in northern Utah melts and I’ll have the chance to put it through the paces better.

 


First Look: Chase54 Charter Golf Polo

In for review is the Chase54 Charter Polo. This is the first Chase54 piece to arrive at Hooked on Golf Blog World Headquarters and I’m excited to check it out.

From Chase54

The Charter polo features a modern-classic rugby stripe design combined with stretch material for freedom of movement and comfort. The brand’s signature DryFuze fabric technology is specially designed to transport moisture from your skin to the clothing’s exterior to stay dry during even the hottest rounds. UPF 40+ is added for sun protection.

Unfortunately right now I’m not able to take full advantage of this polo as the courses are closed and the high temperatures are double digits below freezing. This polo isn’t designed for winter.  I will not be able to post my full review right away.  Stay tuned come spring. Let’s hope for some heat soon!

I’m happy to announce the long awaited Hooked on Golf Blog 2017 Golf Apparel Product of the Year.  After hundreds of hours of testing, wearing, washing, evaluating countless apparel items in the calendar year of 2017, one item has triumphed and is clearly the best of the best. Drumroll please…

Galvin Green Dash Insula Pullover

The Insula Dash pullover is a 1/4 zip golf outerwear piece that exudes style and provides great comfort and performance.  “Body mapping” was used to assist in the design of this tremendous looking and high performance pullover, helping to determine areas which need optimization for breathability. Extra padding on the shoulders and arms not only looks cool, but provides extra insulation and warming in crucial areas.

Innovation, style, and performance have really set Galvin Green apart from other golf apparel companies. For more details on this fantastic apparel piece, check out the HOG Galvin Green Dash Insula Pullover review.

Congratulations

Hats off to Galvin Green for claiming the 2017 HOG Apparel Product of the Year. I look forward to seeing what Galvin Green comes up with in 2018.

In for review are some very nice trousers from The Savile Row Company, a family run business in the heart of London’s Savile Row, where some of the world’s finest tailors are based. I’m thrilled to put the Savile Row Men’s Grey Classic Fit Chinos through the HOG test battery. Check them out.

My photo doesn’t do them justice. I’ve tried them on and they’re super comfortable and the fit is just right.

Features

  • Classic fit, pleat front, zip fly
  • 98% cotton; 2% elastane
  • Improved fabric giving more comfort
  • 2 pleats at front, fits through thigh with a slightly tapered leg
  • Slanted pockets; jetted buttoned back pockets
  • Machine washable at 40°C (Hey, they’re from London. That’s 104 Fahrenheit)


I’ll be testing these trousers out on and off the course and posting my full findings soon. Stay tuned.


First Look: COAST Apparel

I’m about 750 miles from the beach on the west coast. Now I have a reason to get myself there, to wear my COAST Apparel Beach Pants and French Terry Crew Neck sweater.

These threads just came in for review. I just tried them on and boy are they comfy. The sweater is going to come in handy right now, as golf rounds are a wee bit cold at the moment.  Plus I like having some warmth even indoors because it can be hard to shake the chill.

The pants fit very well and they’re super soft.  Can’t wait to put them through a full HOG apparel review battery.

Stay tuned for my full review of these COAST Apparel threads soon.
