I missed the gym yesterday. That makes three years in a row.  But now that I have some of the new Dunning Golf “Technical Sportswear” I may finally have the motivation to get back at it.

Dunning’s new sportswear line is so luxurious and comfortable it’s impossible for me to put into words.  Here’s what they say:

“Dunning combines luxury fabrics with clean athletic designs to create a collection of technical sportswear for men. Today’s active lifestyles demand clothing that performs; Dunning delivers unsurpassed quality, year-round versatility and timeless styling, making it ideal for athletics, travel and leisure.”

I’ve got a pair of sweatpants, shirt, and a 1/4 zip sweatshirt to test.

Golf Apparel Review: Dunning Golf Stretch Performance Bottoms

Regular followers of this humble golf blog know that I’m a big supporter of the fantastic golf apparel brand Dunning Golf.  Dunning is a higher-end apparel label for men only which is producing some of the absolute best golf shirts, outerwear, pants/shorts, and even underwear.  Today’s review is the Dunning Stretch Performance Bottoms (golf shorts).

Dunning Stretch Performance Bottoms (Golf Shorts)

Dunning Stretch Performance Bottoms (Golf Shorts)

Materials

These shorts are made from 90% polyester and 10% spandex. These are the two best modern materials for golf apparel in my opinion, not cotton. Because of these materials, the shorts are very flexible and comfortable. The shorts don’t wrinkle easily.  They are low maintenance, easy to wash, and don’t shrink.

Style

There’s not an apparel label out there which nails golf style as well as Dunning Golf. These shorts are so sharp, clean looking, and classy. Plus Dunning’s colors seem to match so well with a myriad of shirt colors and styles.

On The Course

There’s nothing worse than tight or uncomfortable apparel impeding or restricting the golf swing. None of that with the Stretch Performance Bottoms. Swing away freely and play as good as you are capable, in full comfort and style.

In the office or out on the town there are no better shorts. Really. No better shorts.

Conclusion

I first found out about Dunning when in Colombia playing in the Web.com Tour Colombia Open pro-am.  I was paired with Kevin Foley and I remember being very impressed with the style and look of his Dunning pants.  That was the first exposure I had to the brand and honestly I’ve never had that type of reaction to pants before.  I’m thrilled to have some Dunning shorts in my massive wardrobe a couple of years later.

The Dunning Stretch Performance shorts shine in all the areas I need them to: comfort, style, performance, maintenance.

Dunning’s golf apparel products are SO good I couldn’t resist putting another on this Father’s Day gift guide.  When it is a little too chilly to roll with just a golf polo, this Dunning 1/4 Zip Thermal will take the edge off the cold but not the golf swing.

Kentwool Graduate Compression Sock Review

Kentwool is hands down the best golf sock maker in our solar system and perhaps beyond. I haven’t received any sock samples from outside our solar system, so I can’t be 100% sure though.

Today’s round was a perfect situation to put my Dunning Stretch Thermal Striped 1/4 Zip layer into play.  The temperatures were only in the 60’s with a steady wind about 10-15 miles per hour.  Not warm enough to go without some kind of protection, but not exactly winter golf.  That’s spring golf in Utah, or a round of golf just about anytime at Pebble Beach.

Stretch Thermal Striped 1/4 Zip Features

This outer layer is made up of 94% polyester and 6% spandex.  No cotton and no problem for me.  I love what is being done with these fabrics over the last few years.  They’re durable, machine washable, wrinkle resistant, and very sharp looking.  The fabric insulates the body well, but also helps it breath.

The sleeves are slimming, meaning they’ll stay out of the way in the golf swing.  There’s nothing worse than bad swings caused by irritating apparel issues.

Today I used the included drawstring around the bottom.  Once I tightened it a bit those cold drafts no longer crept up from below.

Sizes/Colors

This piece comes in small, medium, large, extra-large, and double extra-large.  I sport a large and the fit is great.

Mine (pictured) is the black/silver stripe version. The other color combinations are Dusk/Hastings (light bluish with yellow stripe), Halo/Dusk (dark blue with light blue stripe), Sequence/Light Grey (lighter blue with grey stripe).

On The Course

I need an outer layer to take the edge off of the wind and slight chill, but not too heavy.  My black Stretch Thermal is perfect in that situation, and soaks up some of the sun’s heat to help keep my back warm.  The garment doesn’t bind or pull during the swing, allowing me to swing freely and crack some massive drives.  It also does not impede my putting.  I bend over quite a bit and some poorer fitted outer layers can snag the putter grip.  That’s a quick way to miss putts.

True to Dunning’s reputation the comfort level is as good as it gets.  Style wise?  When I wear Dunning I know I’m at the top of the golf apparel food chain.

Conclusion

I’ve dealt with dozens of apparel companies and reviewed countless products over the last 10+ years.  Every Dunning product I’ve tested, the $105 Stretch Thermal Striped 1/4 Zip included, features the highest of quality, style, comfort, and performance.
