Best Golf Vests

For some golfers, a padded mid layer can feel bulky and cumbersome to swing in, so a vest provides a very good alternative. Whether you call them vests, gilets, body warmers or gaiters, they are one of the best golf tops you can go for because they free the arms, and provide the appropriate amount of warmth on milder days when a normal golf jumper might be too much.

There are a range of styles on offer, with some being thick and padded for extra warmth, while others are lighter and thinner to just take the edge off that winter chill. Think about what you would need the most and let that influence the type of golf vest you buy. Additionally there are lots of different designs out there as well with most brands looking to offer something that differentiates them from the competition. 

We're confident you'll find what you're looking for in our showcase of the best golf vests below. Additionally, be sure to have a look at some of our other guides too if you want garments to keep you sheltered and warm - such as the best golf sweaters or best golf waterproofs.
