I’ve been sporting some “proper threads” from golf apparel and lifestyle brand Devereux.  Say hello to the Cameron Golf Polo.

About Devereux

Devereux is an excellent golf apparel brand.  Every product I’ve checked out in the line is superior quality.  The fabrics, designs, and comfort in the Devereux brand are the highest quality available.

Cameron Golf Polo Details

The Cameron is a fantastic polo comprised of 96% polyester and 4% spandex.  The “air-flow knit” of the fabric is a combination of two knitting styles.  The knit is designed to air condition the wearer and help regulate the body temperature.  The fabric provides “moisture wicking” which is the process of drawing moisture (sweat) from the body and moving it to the outside of the fabric, where it evaporates.

Sizes/Colors

The polo comes in two colors, Agave (pictured) and Waves, a blue and white stripe.  Sizes for the Cameron include: small, medium, large, extra-large, and double extra-large.

On the Course/On the Town

The style and comfort of the Cameron are fantastic, whether I’m crushing massive drives on the golf course, writing Blogizer Prize winning golf reviews, or coding at work.  In the golf swing the shirt moves with my body, even in the strange jerky un-natural contortions my dual chicken wing granny over the top move has.

Final Thoughts

Total comfort, performance and style are why the Devereux Cameron golf polo is the real-deal.  At $85 the Cameron isn’t the least expensive polo out there, nor is it the most expensive though.  The Cameron is as good as any high-end polo I’ve worn.

Father’s Day is coming up.  Pick up pops a Cameron and he’ll be the most stylish and cool person in his group.

aahSoles Green Coral Flip Flops

Finally the temperatures are rising to the point where after a round of golf I have no desire to replace my golf shoes with shoes and socks. Flip flop season is upon us, with the occasional northern Utah decoy spring snow storm. I’ve been happily wearing my Green Coral flip flops by aahSoles, shown below.

Funny name, yes. Funny look, yes. Fun marketing for sure and that’s all I thought aahSoles was about until I wore them. The footbed of these flip flops is tremendous. The material pattern/texture gives my feet an amazing massage with every footstep. I’m trying to figure out how to wear these to work.


The texture, along with perfectly designed straps, making the act of walking easier than any flip flop or sandal I’ve ever worn. No slippage and no irritation of the toes.

Conclusion

I had some Vans flip flops which were my gamers, but now they’re in the backup bag.  The gamers are now ahhSoles.  Sounds dorky, but I can’t wait to wear them again.  This could be the best $30 investment ever.

Father’s Day is coming up. These would make a great golf or non-golf related Father’s Day gift idea and very reasonably priced too.

 

 


Aline Golf Foot Suspension System – Now I Have Sole

Last season while training for my Scotland trip by walking many golf rounds on some very hilly courses, I learned more about foot support than I’d ever hoped.  The combination of my likely overdoing the walking with shoes which had minimal arch support caused an arch injury in my right foot.  After consulting some foot specialists I found out I’d given myself Plantar fasciitis, inflammation of the band of tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes, which supports the arch of the foot.  I had to change out my shoe inserts and replace them with expensive replacements which provided better arch support.  Fortunately the inserts helped, and I was able to walk the entire 125 miles in Scotland without hurting my arches, or even irritating them.

I’ve found now that my feet seem to be more susceptible to Plantar fasciitis, and walking even short distances in shoes which don’t have enough arch support causes me instant pain.  Thankfully I’ll be putting the Aline foot suspension system into play to help with this.

Aline makes many different models of shoe inserts which aid in support and body alignment for athletes, including these specially designed for golf.  The golf model’s technology is designed to help support the golfer and put him/her in the best position athletically to make a golf swing.

Do they work?  Stay tuned for my full report after I’ve had a few weeks of testing.  I have high hopes.  I need to walk a lot this season for my health, since about the only other exercise I get right now is clicking a mouse button.


Galvin Green Bart – Windstopper Jacket

Last fall and this spring here in northern Utah has been the perfect environment for testing out top-of-the-line wind/rain apparel.  I’ve been using my Galvin Green Bart Jacket and absolutely loving it.  This jacket is tremendous.  Let’s take a look.

Windstopper Overview

Galvin Green is one of the world’s best in terms of outerwear and weather resistant fabrics.  The Bart jacket is a prime example.  This stretchable, breathable Gore-Tex jacket is completely wind proof.  Windchill is eliminated.  Do you hear that my friends in Scotland?  The key is the “windstopper membrane” which is a protective layer laminated to another light textile layer.  The membrane is made of the versatile polymer polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE).  The PTFE is expanded to create a “microporous structure.”  This sounds like Klingon, but in English it means a breathable material which protects against wind and moisture but allows the wearer’s body to breathe and stay comfortable.

The user benefits from the jacket’s “thermoregulatory function,” which keeps regulates the body temperature for optimal performance.

The fit is tapered in the sleeves and aided by flexible material, as well as a draw string in the waist area to keep the wind and weather out.

No Wonder

I’ve been enjoying how great this jacket feels and performs (not to mention the fantastic looks), not knowing how incredible the technology that makes it happen really is.  Researching this jacket has matched the high expectations from Galvin Greena; confirmation in what I already knew, Galvin Green rules.

Here I am enjoying my jacket’s thermoregulatory function, provided by the expanded microporous structure of the polymer polytetrafluorethylene…

Colors/Sizes

Colors include: steel white/gray/borolo red, navy/blue/white, black/deep ocean(blue)/white, iron grey/black/white (pictured in this article), black/iron grey/apple (light green).

Sizes: sizes run from small to XXXL.

Care

I dislike high maintenance golf apparel. I need to be able to throw a garment in the washer and dryer and expect no wrinkles, shrinkage, or fading. No problem here. The Windstopper is cleaned with washer and dryer, and can even be ironed! I’m curious about their recommendation to keep the piece away from fire. Those who like to burn their golf apparel may want to stay away from this one.

Conclusion

The Windstopper ($275) is my current go-to jacket for wind and rain.  On the course the Windstopper lets me swing free with no restrictions.  It’s also the go-to at the office, where I sit right below an air conditioning vent.  I wish I’d hat this beauty for that last trip to Scotland. It’s looking like Ireland and Scotland are coming up and the Bart Windstopper will be definitely making the trips.

Easter Festivities yesterday included a round of golf (a.k.a. searching for the white round Easter egg), and a nice Greek style family get together.  What’s a perfect pair of shorts that works great on the course, and for Easter dinner right after? What pair of shorts looks great, stylish, classy, but still features a lovely bouquet of skulls? Tattoo Golf Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts of course!

It was fairly warm yesterday too and the fabric of the shorts helped keep me cool, at least physically. Stay tuned for my full review of the Lucky 13 ProCool golf shorts soon. A few more rounds of testing to go.
