Spring is here in northern Utah.  What that basically means is there’s 50-60 degree temps but mixed with snow showers every few days. The snow melts quickly now.

This is the perfect time of year (or all year in Scotland) to enjoy the comfort, style and performance of the Sun Mountain Hybrid vest.  Let’s take a look.

The Hybrid Vest is a windproof vest with quilted panels which provide warmth.  Stretch panels move with the golfer’s swing and the “DWR” finish on the quilted panels provides water resistance.

The Hybrid offers zippered hand-warmer pockets and an inside chest pocket.


The Hybrid is available in five colors: blue (shown), black, dark gray, light gray with blue trim.

Sizes range from small to double extra-large.  I game XL’s usually and the fit is right on. Thankfully it’s not the smaller “skinny euro” fit.

On The Course

I’ve been enjoying the Hybrid, despite the blue color. It’s well known I don’t do blue. It’s a college football thing.  That said, this vest is so great I’ll go blue temporarily.  Just don’t let my football pals know.

On the course the vest has been perfect for these spring days were I need to keep my core, especially my back warm. It does a perfect job protecting my core against wind and cold, and keeps my arms free and clear.

During the golf swing the Hybrid stretches and adjusts perfectly. No binding, pulling, or tight spots restricting my rather unorthodox swing.

I’ve gamed the Hybrid vest around town and at work as well.  It’s very comfortable and not too bulky.

Final Thoughts

The Sun Mountain Hybrid Vest ($119) checks off all of my requirements for an outerwear piece of this type.  First and foremost it needs to do its primary job of keeping me warm and protecting me from wind and cold. Check. Add to that great styling and comfort and the Hybrid is like a tap-in birdie putt.
