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

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.
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.
My short game needs more work than a 1975 AMC Pacer. It’s nice to have a six-sleeve of Sci-Core indoor/outdoor practice golf balls handy to practice my chipping and pitching in the hallway.
I can even hit flops from the bottom of the stairs to the landing, then up the other half of the stairway to the 2nd floor of HOG World Headquarters. If I mis-hit a shot, which is highly likely, I won’t break anything except my fragile confidence. Sci-Core practice balls are soft.
Some pitching wedge work in the hallway
Sci-Core practice balls differentiate themselves from regular practice balls in a few ways. They’re soft, but will not crush or change shape. Many practice balls will cave in with hard swings, never to be the same shape again. The covers are durable and don’t scuff. The roll and flight is more accurate than any other practice ball I’ve used.
Practice makes permanent. Work on your short game inside or outside, in tight spaces without the worry of causing any damage on errant shots.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Galvin Green Ventil8 Polo Review
Galvin Green Millard Polo
Some reviews take a wee bit longer than others because there are specific applications for the products, like travel. Case in point is the Sun Mountain TravelGlider Suitcase (below).
The TravelGlider Suitcase is a companion to the Club Glider Journey, which I reviewed here a long time ago. The TravelGlider works on the same basic engineering as the Journey, four wheels are better than two, or none.
The TravelGlider Suitcase is H 30” X W 13” X D 13” and weighs 17 lbs. There are multiple internal pockets and a main compartment that expands 2.5” for added capacity. There are numerous handles for easy loading, carrying and of course the baggage handlers to throw the thing around.
The inside is spacious and hold plenty of golf apparel items for golf trips of several days to more than a week, depending on how much you sweat or spill marinara on your golf shirt.
The key and best part of the bag is the ease in which it is huffed and transported through airports, train stations, parking lots, hotels, and wherever else one may shlep a suitcase. Just like the Club Glider, I can move my suitcase around an airport with one finger. Even my pinkie. It’s so easy. The wheels retract for storage and to check the bag.
Getting around airports with a Club Glider and TravelGlider is so easy it almost makes airports fun. Almost.
