1st go with the Pro Quip Stormforce PX6 jacket yesterday. Just cool and windy, no rain. The fit and fabric are perfect. Way more better than the FJ Tour Xp gear being replaced. Pro Quip marketing touts their proprietary fabric that feels like silk, spot on. Soft, supple, no rustle when swinging. Fit is close thru the body so no blouse effect when bent over to putt, plenty of freedom thru the armpits and shoulders.

Purchased thru Golfsupport.com, a U.K. firm. Pricing in U.S. dollars and shipping was fast and seamless. Thought $182.00 and $113.00 for the PX6 rain pants when purchased together is a pretty good deal.

how do the pants fit? baggy like most rain pants or more like a traditional pant? Are they ok to be worn just over a base layer in winter or would you always wear them over regular pants?
Ive been thinking about picking the px6 up because of the price
Not baggy at all for rain gear. Would work nicely with just a base layer, or able to wear over shorts or slacks.

Good question. Never noticed PQ website does not show PX6. Golfsupport.com, where I ordered lists PX6 and garments are logoed PX6. Browsing both sites, they look identical.

I like the Kjus Dexter so much, I’ve bought another for general wear. But deep red is pretty much my favourite colour and was reduced to 1/3 of the RRP. So...

I’ve also bought a Kjus Blackcomb stretch puffer, for pleasure, not golf. It may of course be deployed on the course as and when.

I bloody love this brand, their kit is so nice. I need to stop.

My Dexter Half-Zip came yesterday. The box it comes in is huge and the bag you store it in is tiny. I would have gotten a 52 if they had one at the $159 discount price, but since they didn’t, went with 54. It’s slightly big with only a t-shirt on but I’ll most likely have another layer on when I do use it so it should be fine.

If you don't mind Gentian (purple), the web site appears have a size 52 for $95. You can add it to your cart, but, I don't know about check out. I tried to buy one earlier this year, but, I wasn't able to check out, since, they were sold out.

I have a bunch of rain gear from outdoor manufacturers as I do a lot of backpacking.  I have a pair of Arcteryx full side zip pants with the c-knit backer that I use for adverse hiking conditions, which I also use as golf rain pants.  

My heavy duty shell jacket is an Outdoor Research Mentor jacket, with the torso-flo pit zip systems.  Do golf rain jackets have pit zips?  Also, my mentor jacket has a hood....Can you play golf in a jacket with pit zips and a hood?  I have yet to try it, but I'll probably throw my Mentor jacket in my golf bag and give it a shot.  

Incidentally, someone earlier in the thread posted about KUIU, which makes ultralight gear for hunting.  Their Chugach Rain gear is also made with Toray Dermizax, which is the same material as the Kjus Pro.  The KUIU comes with a hood and pit zips.  Pit Zips are awfully nice for ventilation.  

Does the Proquip come with a fleece liner by chance?  I was wondering if it is like Paramo rain gear.

Golf waterproofs typically do not have pit zips, no.  Not really sure why though, to be honest with you.  Golfers often times walk, and that builds up heat inside the jacket.  Pit zips would be a good way to dump that heat.  

As far as a hood is concerned, golf waterproofs typically don't have them either.  Again, not sure why.

I do have a few Outdoor Research waterproofs that I will rotate into my golf gear, that have both pit zips and a hood.  I really like the hood option, as it (obviously) keeps my head dry when walking and playing in the rain. Of course I pull it off/back when hitting a shot, as the hood moving/rustling around your head during a swing is distracting, bit pulled back it's not in the way at all.  I do wish golf apparel manufacturers would start putting them on their waterproofs, or at least offering an option to have one.  Even if it was stowable in the collar of the jacket.  

And your idea to use "outdoor" (hiking, climbing, backpacking, skiing, etc) waterproofs for golf is actually a pretty good one.  I've found that rain gear made for that market is designed to be used in MUCH more active settings than golf, where the wearer is moving a lot more (and possibly working up a sweat) than in golf.  Thus usually much more breathable to deal with that increased water vapor, aka be breathable.  This is where a lot of these alternative, better than GoreTex fabrics got their start.  Designing something to breathe better and not be like wearing a trash can liner, holding the majority of your water vapor in and condensing to water inside your gear.

This is where I concur.  I took up golf again ten years ago.  Before that I climbed mountains (Colorado) and am an avid fly fisherman.  I see no reason to buy rain gear that is golf specific.  The light weight jacket in my bag is North Face.  And as mentioned by chris975d Outdoor Research is good.  That guy’s long post about Gore and their membrane is exactly as I understand the waterproof world.  Just get the best.... Patagonia, Archteryx, Marmot, Simms, or any number of other outdoor equipment manufacturers.

My Ping Zero gravity arrived today, comparing it to the Kjus dexter...

The Kjus is certainly lighter and thinner
The ping is significantly quieter and stretchier
The Kjus waist adjustment is better
Both are unbelievably waterproof

I think I’ll keep the ping and return the Kjus, the fabric is much nicer overall imo and the Ping is wider in the shoulders but slightly slimmer in the waist so fits me better

Have to say I wasn’t massively impressed with the Kjus stuff that arrived, spent £209 with them and returning £200, the hat that I decided to keep stained after just one use ����‍♂️

I did a fairly extensive search for the best rain gear and I think the hands down winner is KJUS. They have two options the 3.0L and the 2.5L. The 2.5L is the lightest rain jacket I have ever owned. It weighs less than three golf balls! I have the 2.5L in a short sleeve pullover and the 3.0L in the full length zip up jacket.

They are both light- they are both not baggy and as important to me if they don’t make that annoying swishing sound when I walk.

Now that being said- I am going to buy a pair of the waterproof Galloway Bay rain pants. I have heard people raving about them.

Can you tell me if there are any differences in fit between the Dexter and the Pro 3L please? For instance, length, waist and chest fitting.
