At the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando this past January I did my usual stop at the OGIO booth to see what cool new golf bags or accessories they were presenting. I was surprised by what I found: new OGIO golf apparel. At the time I wondered what they were thinking. The golf apparel market is flooded. Now that I’ve had a chance to do my first OGIO apparel review, I’m happy they entered the golf apparel market. Here’s why:

OGIO Roller Polo

OGIO Roller Polo

The new OGIO Roller Polo ($80 retail) is a short sleeve golf shirt made from 100% polyester. I really like polyester vs cotton. The benefits of a “poly” are great: no shrinking like cotton, no wrinkles like cotton, lasts much longer than cotton, wicks moisture away from the body unlike cotton. So if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m not a cotton fan.

Looks/Comfort

This shirt is very good looking and stylish. Love the knits and trim. The fabric is amazingly soft.  It feels softer than just about any cotton, bamboo or silk golf shirt I’ve worn.

Other Benefits

In addition to all the great benefits above, the Roller Polo provides UV (ultraviolet) protection. Anti-microbial qualities in the fabric keep the polo fresh.

Sizes/Colors

The Roller Polo comes in the following sizes: small, medium, large, X large, XX large.

Roller Polo colors: Alloy, Alloy Black, Blueprint (pictured), Signal Red

On The Course

The most important qualities a polo can offer me on the course are, in this order of importance: performance, comfort, style.

In the performance area, this polo is fantastic. During all parts of the golf swing the polo never binds or catches. No tight spots.

In the comfort department, as mentioned previously, the fabric of this shirt is mega-soft. This polo is one of the most comfortable golf shirts I’ve ever worn.

In the style department, this baby is uber-cool.

Conclusion

There is a lot of trial and error when creating a new product line. OGIO has done a fantastic job with their new apparel line and the Roller Polo is a fine example.  The Roller is stylish, comfortable, easily cared for, and high performance.

Well played OGIO.  Well played.

Golf Apparel Review: Greg Norman ML75 Golf Polo

I’ve been diligently testing two Greg Norman ML75 golf polos recently. I’ve put them through the rigors at the office, through many golf rounds (high and low), laundry batches, and cooking sessions making killer Greek dishes for dinner. Let’s take a look at the ML75 features, then look at how it performed in those varying environments.

ML75 Features

  • Super fine microfiber polyester yarn
  • Moisture wicking
  • Easy care
  • Aerated knit collar
  • Aerated knit inserts
  • Shark on bottom hem
  • Ultraviolet protection factor 20+

Sizes and Colors

The ML75 comes in many different patterns as well as solid colors.  Too many to list, but the two I tested are a great looking striped purple and striped black (see both photos).

Sizes for the ML75 include small, medium, large, extra-large, and double extra-large.

On The Course, In The Office, In The Kitchen, Out On The Town, In The Laundry

First and foremost this polo is great on the golf course.  I’ve now worn it in all sorts of conditions, including 94 degree temperatures with nearly 100% humidity.  In the high heat and humidity the shirt wicked the moisture away from my body very well and didn’t stick to me during my golf swing.  The fit, especially important during the swing, is very comfortable and doesn’t hang up or bind at any point.

In the office the ML75 is very comfortable and certainly very classy.  In the kitchen, the olive oil came right out as did the marinara and Greek oregano.

Easy Care

The microfiber polyester is so soft.  It feels like silk.  Almost as great as the feel is the fact that if washed and dried properly, the shirt will never shrink or wrinkle.  That’s a big deal for me.

Critiques

Critiques: NONE.  ZERO.  ZILCH.  NADA.

Conclusion

At $69 retail, the Greg Norman ML75 is a very good value.  This polo delivers comfort, style and performance one might expect from polos priced twice as much.

Today is/was day two of my testing of the Greg Norman ML75 golf polo.  Yesterday I put my purple one though a long day at the office followed by a very hot and humid round of golf on a very hilly golf course, carrying the bag.

Today’s duty is a little lighter for my black ML75, mostly in the office but some hard work in the kitchen making Greek rice and watching some NFL football.

The shirt performs very well in the kitchen and even better watching football.  I’ll do more evaluation this weekend at the nicest course in town.  🙂

Today’s Apparel Script

I’ve been a big OGIO fan for years.  Love their design creativity and thoughtfulness when it comes to golf accessories, bags etc.  Naturally I was intrigued when I found out they’ve started making apparel.  For today’s shift at the office and this afternoon’s round I’m sporting an OGIO Roller polo and OGIO Groove golf shorts.

So far I’m really digging the OGIO Roller Polo.  The shirt is 100% polyester, but is softer than any cotton shirt I’ve ever worn.  The shorts are killer too.  Very comfortable.

Stay tuned for a detailed review soon.
