Yesterday was the final tournament of the year, the annual Hell Day Halloween event. I did play quite well, though I did not take home the cool skull trophy. Part of the reason I played well was because I was testing out the Dunning Golf layering system for the first time.
Dunning Merino Wool Boxer Brief Base Layer
This time of year it can be quite cold here in northern Utah, and having the right apparel is crucial to staying warm and loose, and playing well.
The two layering items I put in play yesterday were the Dunning merino wool long sleeve base layer and the merino wool boxer shorts pictured below.
Dunning Golf Layering System
So far I’m very impressed with the comfort and how well I was able to stay warm yesterday. I’ll put the layering system through a few more HOG test batteries and post my full review soon.

When the Hooked On Golf Blog World Tour was in Bogota, Colombia earlier this year, I had the great opportunity to play a round of golf with Kevin Foley. Kevin had just won the Panama Championship the week before on the Web.com Tour. That win would help propel Kevin to attaining a 2014 PGA Tour card.
During that round I couldn’t help notice the fantastic apparel setup Kevin was sporting. I saw the Dunning label on the trousers and wasn’t familiar with the brand at that time. A few months later, now that I’m becoming familiar with the line, Dunning is in the running (so to speak) to be my favorite apparel company. Read on for another reason why.
Stretch Thermal 1/4-Zip
I’m reviewing Dunning’s Stretch Thermal 1/4-Zip product. This is a beautiful garment. The photos can’t do it justice. This pullover is meant for insulation but still provides breathability. The 1/4-Zip is perfect for fall golf in north america. Right now a bit of insulation and protection from the cold and wind is needed.
The 1/4-Zip is made from 88% polyester and 12% spandex. Thank goodness. No cotton. Not a fan of cotton with the wrinkles, shrinking and such. With a spandex/poly combo, we’re talking very little care required and ironing only if needed. I haven’t needed to yet.
The pullover has a drawstring waist which helps to seal out the cold as well as keep it out of the way of the golf swing. In my case, sometimes outerwear gets in the way of my putting stroke because I bend over quite a bit. The 1/4-Zip allows me to bury my opponents with my deadly putting without worrying about the putter snagging or the garment resisting.
The sleeves are a trimmer fit too, to aid in playability.
“I’ll get the stick, and I’ll enjoy holding it since I’m so warm and comfortable in my Dunning pullover!”
The Dunning Stretch Thermal 1/4-Zip comes in six colors: Reef (pictured), Black, Charcoal, Halo, White, Zephyr.
Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, Extra-Large, Double Extra Large.
On The Course – On The Town
Playing golf with the 1/4-Zip is a breeze, and it keeps the breeze from cooling me off too much. The full game from tee to green is a pleasure. No binding, pulling…zero restriction.
I love wearing the Stretch Thermal around town too. Anything from driving to chilling out at a local establishment enjoying frosty beverages.
I’m a big Dunning Golf fan in the early stages of addiction…
The Stretch Thermal performs perfectly on the course, yet is nice enough to wear in the clubhouse, and I’m talking about the fancy restaurant, not just the cafe.
