Featuring a wind and water-resistant nylon outer material that is combined with a soft inner lining to provide added warmth, these gloves were a joy to wear on the course and our hands felt well protected inside the glove. We also really liked the design of these gloves, which feature a nicely sculpted polyester shell and some very cool white detailing.

No adjustable cuff

The soft Heatweaver thermal brushed fleece lining on these gloves plays a huge impact in keeping your hands warm and snug on the course. It recirculates warm air around your hands keeping them well insulated in the coldest of climates. That insulation works as your hands are sealed off by inner storm cuffs around the wrists, which also secure your hands into the gloves. These mitts are also wind and shower proof and will keep your hands safe from the wet weather. 

If it gets really cold and you need an extra layer of heat, you can add hand warmers to the specially provided pockets to keep your hands extra toasty. Hanging clips are also attached to the wrists to keep the mittens conveniently on hand so they don’t take up any unnecessary room inside your bag. It's also worth noting that for what's on offer here, these gloves come in at a great price point and are a very durable offering that will last a long time.

As you might expect these are one of the more stylish offerings on this list and they come with velcro for easy attachment to your bag or trolley. It must also be said that the technology included in these mitts is also just as impressive as their look, with the windproof lining offering extreme breathability so your hands remain warm and not sweaty.

Galvin Green are a top-notch brand for dealing with most forms of weather and are one of very few brands to have more than one model in our best waterproof golf jackets (opens in new tab) guide.

Those with wide hands might find them too tight

These offer an adjustable wrist band so, whether you have small or large hands, you should be able to find a fit that is good for you. However, we did find them to be a little on the tight side, which is something larger-handed golfers should consider. Inside, these mitts are triple wadded for extra warmth and comfort and the palm grip offers extra purchase. In addition, the soft outer fabric delivers outstanding protection against whatever conditions are being thrown at you.

How we test golf products

In terms of testing golf gloves, our testing process (opens in new tab) is similar to all the other golf gear reviews we produce, in that manufacturers cannot pay for a good review and we always tell it how we see it. While our writer Sam Tremlett (opens in new tab) heads up all reviews on apparel, we should say that everyone in the Golf Monthly team are golfers and have experience playing at a variety of different levels. We feel this gives us honesty and integrity in the reviews that we produce. We seek to try and be as comprehensive as possible in testing and reviewing each product which means we have used it over a number of rounds, in different conditions, as this often gives us great insight into things like durability, fit, quality and so on.

Specifically, when it comes to testing golf mittens, we look to test these gloves in a variety of conditions to assess several factors that include, durability, weatherproofing and how easy they are to use. Weatherproofing is perhaps the most important of those factors and we look to test each pair of gloves out on the course in wet weather, cold weather and windy weather, putting them all to the test to see how each performs in different conditions. 

What to consider when buying a pair of golf mittens

You may not think that a golf mitt is that important compared to other pieces of equipment on the market, but in fact, they really are! Getting cold hands on the course is one of the worst things that can happen to a golfer. It can be debilitating for your swing and can cost you a few shots around the course. For that reason, it is very important to get the right pair of golf mits that will keep your hands warm and dry on the golf course. So to help you make an informed choice, we've set out several key points below that you need to remember when purchasing your next pair of golf mittens. 

1. Materials

It is vital to make sure you're buying a pair of mitts that are made of quality materials that are going to keep your hands warm on the course. Some players like to have gloves that have several layers inside and feature a fluffy thermal internal lining. One thing you shouldn't forget is that you need to ensure your gloves are totally waterproof, as wet hands are an absolute no-no when its cold on the course. Comfort is also king when it comes to buying a pair of golf mittens, so make sure to try them on before you buy!

2. Insulation

While ensuring your mittens are made of a good material is important to ensure your hands stay warm on the course. Your gloves need to be able to retain heat, even when you remove your hands from them, as a pair of gloves that allow heat to dissipate from them are not efficient at all. Look out for gloves that have good fastenings around your hands, that will keep the heat in and your hands snug inside the mitten.

3. Fit 

We can hear you asking, how should a mitt fit? Well, depending on what you want from your mittens, you may want something that is large enough to fit your hand whilst wearing a pair of wet-weather golf gloves (opens in new tab). Sometimes when it's cold, the thicker the mitt, the better the glove. So it may be worth looking out for a pair of mitts that are slightly on the larger size to keep your hands nice and snug.

4. Pockets

Some manufacturers have really thought ahead and added some cool pockets to their golf mitts in which you can add hand warmers for those extra cold days on the course. If you're someone who really hates having cold hands, then these might be the best golf gloves for you!

5. Ease of use

Because no one likes faffing around on the golf course, right? Being able to quickly take your gloves on and off between shots and store them safely on your bag is a huge bonus of any mitten as that keeps your game flowing quickly and can also stop you from being out in the cold for too long. Look for mittens that have expandable wrists, that have clips on their side that you can hook them onto your bag quickly, or those that can be attached to your golf trolley.

FAQ's

What are the best golf mittens?

There are lots of excellent golf mittens on the market these days. Big and small brands construct designs purely to keep your hands warm and we included many of the best models in our best golf mitts guide. 

Can you play golf in mittens?

Yes, but it is not advisable if you're looking to score well and hit good shots. As golf mittens are not as grippy as a standard golf glove, are much thicker, and don't have individual fingers, you will struggle to get the same level of grip on the club shaft as you will with a pair of regular gloves. 

Why are golf mittens so important in cold weather?

Golf mittens are vital to ensuring your hands stay dry and warm out on the golf course. If your hands get cold out on the course, you can seriously struggle to hit good golf shots and score well. For that reason, it is really important that players keep their hands well protected in the cold weather by wearing golf mittens that keep their hands warm.
