I am looking for a winter golf jacket that I can wear in temps around 35 to 45 degrees with wind.  I live in MA so winters are relatively long and cold but try to get out with my buddies every 2 weeks until the season starts as long as the courses aren’t covered in snow.

I am looking at proquip tour flex quilted and the Sunice Hamilton hybrid.  I would like to find a jacket that I can wear over a base layer and be warm all day.  Any suggestions would help or if anyone has feedback on the two I have narrowed down.

If you can find the Ping Norse, go for that.  I have played in 40 degree temps with only a golf shirt on underneath.  Itís a very warm jacket but also very easy to swing a golf club while wearing the jacket.  I had to order mine from a UK retailer.  

Here is the link where I got my jacket:

Look up the winter jackets thread- its probably a few pages back on this subforum-lots of reviews on different jackets.

The best I have is the Ping Norse-way warner than anything else, but expensive.  
I also have a Pro quip Therma Pro, which is a quilted vest with windproof sleeves.  Very easy to swing in and warm enough in that temp range with a good base layer but the arms are going to be colder.  Probably more of a 40-50 degree jacket.  I think it is pretty similar to the tour flex quilted but I bought mine from golf support and had it shipped to the US because it was cheaper

http://proquipgolf.c...rma-pro-jacket/

There are some reviews of the Sunice I think in the other thread.  Another Sunice option is the Franz, which is for colder temps

This Callaway jacket happens to be on sale for 50% off today at dillards- along with some other callaway golf items

https://www.dillards...510256_zi_black

It was reviewed by several members in a giveaway a few months ago that can be found in the tour/pre-release subforum.  Many seemed to like it but noted it needed a base layer because it didn't block wind well.  Pretty cheap price though so may be worth a try

Here is a link to the Callaway apparel review thread:

http://www.golfwrx.c...y#entry18319962

It is also available in a vest version and big and tall sizes.  All 50% off today

This is a link to all of the golf products in the sale:  Not too much to choose from

Mizuno fleece with wind liner is awesome. I am in Wisconsin and I wear it in 30 to 40 degree temps with a Mizuno long sleeve thermal T-shirt underneath.

For an alternative option, checkout this deal at Costco on an Orvis Hybrid.  Picked one up for $18 while shopping for everyday use.  Wore it on a whim while golfing last week - it is perfect!  And will save you a ton...

I played in 40-45 degrees with 10-15 mph winds last week. Had on UA Base Layer 3.0, a golf polo and the UA Storm Insulated jacket. Along with a knit hat and knit neck warmer (snood).  And with golf winter gloves, I was totallly warm. The Norse likely could easily replace the UA jacket from what I have read (Chrisís posts), but thatís my go to layering for warmth and flexibility to swing.

They’re getting hard to find the gold specific models at this point, but the UA Reactor series is the best piece of clothing I have ever owned.  No idea how it works, but it really does seem to adjust to your body temperature and keep you comfortable over 4 hours on the course.  

I know the 1/4 zip isn’t wind proof, but it handles 10 to 15 mpg winds just fine.

Here in Michigan, I play all winter long as weather allows. The best combination I've found for this temp range is a thermal long sleeve under the Footjoy lined sweater. Very comfortable down into the 30's. The sweater does a very good job of breaking the wind.

I liked the 32 Degrees brand jacket at Costco much better.  My local Costco had the Orvis, but I felt the 32 Degrees was of higher quality with a better fit for me.  This jacket actually has down fill, not polyester like the Orvis.  It's a few bucks more, but well worth it.

I know this thread is for jackets but just wanted to throw this in. I have 3 of the FootJoy long sleeve undershirts and they make an incredible difference. I can wear that + a polo on a 50* day no problem. On a cold day (I dont make it out below 45* often) I can put a jacket over the top and im great

Now you tell me.  Well, I'll have to make due with Orvis.  I plan to keep this in my car as an "emergency" golf jacket.

I concur with @Steeltown1 regarding the 32 Degrees Mixed Media Jacket.  I bought one from Costco.com in Medium and was pleasantly surprised by its quality.

The jacket isn't very thick at all (I prefer thinner jackets that don't interfere with a full swing), but its fleece sleeves and its down-filled quilted panels in the chest/back areas still kept me warm on a windy 50° day.

Beware, they run big.  I usually wear a size Large in jackets, but luckily I ordered a Medium which fits nicely.

Bonus: these are currently on sale at Costco.com for $17 until Jan 20th.  While they aren't nearly as warm as a Ping Norse Jacket, they do a pretty decent job for only $17.

I just bought the Orvis jacket today at the warehouse. I was thinking about getting two colors but didn't. Thanks to this tip I just got the other color in the 32 Degree.
