Any suggestions on a cold weather golf vest?  I’m thinking like a filled vest and not fleece.  Needs the be warm enough for golf under 40 degrees.

I love the new Adidas Climaheat vest but the $120+ is a little much.

Any recommendations?

What about the Adidas Prime Quilted from last season? I've got it in a full jacket and it's my favorite jacket by far. Part fleece, part fill and you can get it very cheap.

I use patagonia and frequently play in under 45 degree weather. I pair it with a Smartwool 250 weight and works well for me.

might be able to pick up a mizuno sweater vest on sale/closeout somewhere.  Their regular sweaters (hayate, warmalite, windlite I thing are different models) are WARM, I'd imagine the vests to be similar.  It's not golf specific, but I have an arcteryx atom vest I love.  Warm and has stretchy side panels. Is expensive but works great, mine is 5+ years old and going strong.  I got mine from REI with their 20 or 30% off coupon they do a few times per year.

Agreed. I use a generic midweight fleece vest and a midweight thermal long sleeve shirt underneath. It's good into the 40s definitely. Maybe a light windvest on top if it's windy.

Adidas Prime Quilted and Climawarm are awesome. They are worth the price but if you look at places like namebrandgolfshirts.com they carry them at good prices.

Sun Mountain makes an extremely thin full sleeve shirt that goes under an outer layer.  You don't even know it's there and it retains an amazing amount of heat.  Wore it last Saturday in 35 degree temps with an Under Armour compression shirt and a Mizzy Wind Light jacket and was toasty!

Well if you don't like the Adidas price tag, you may not like my suggestion...

But the Nike Aeroloft Vest is a phenomenal product. I was skeptical buying one, but I really wish I would have gotten one a year ago. Money very well spent.

Played 18 a few days ago in 36* cloudy weather and it felt great!
Taylormade Tour Issue M2 9.5* w/ Tensei CK Pro White 70TX
Taylormade M2 Tour 15* 3W w/ Tensei CK Pro White 80TX
Taylormade M2 Tour 19* 5W w/ Tensei CK Pro White 80TX
Nike Vapor Pro 3-PW w/ DG TI X100
Nike Engage 52/56/60 w/ DG TI S400
Nike Method Oven Proto 006
Bridgestone B330S
Jones x Greyson Stand Bag

Work. Play. Win. Repeat.

If you're wearing heatgear in the cold, you're doing it wrong. Don't feel bad though. You'd be surprised by how many people get this wrong.

Wolsey makes a nice golf vest. I have the hybrid jacket version of this vest and absolutely love it. Very warm and breaths well.
