MacWet Climatec Winter Gloves Review

Being equipped to play golf in any and all conditions can be worth countless shots as we get into the off-season. So, if you’re the type who likes to log hours on the course year round, it’s about time you started to think about your winter wardrobe.

And we’re not just talking about waterproof tops and bottoms, although they are also important. No, an often-overlooked bit of apparel is the wet weather golf glove, and it’s for that reason we put the MacWet Climatec Winter Gloves to the test. 

The first thing to say about this product is that it not only protects from rain, but it also delivers exceptional warmth when the temperature drops. For as long as we kept them on, the impact of the elements was minimised.

In fact, the wetter it got, the more grip we found we had. This is thanks to the Aquatec microfibre material used in manufacturing on the fingers and the palm. Even in conditions worse than we would normally play in, we still retained enough grip on the club and feeling in our hands to get the ball round.

RELATED: Best golf gloves

In truth, the biggest hurdle we had to overcome was getting used to playing golf with two gloves on. Making the transition into a left-handed winter glove is fairly seamless, but getting comfortable enough to swing with both on took a few rounds.

One of the things that made it a little easier was the fit and feel provided. It goes without saying that a new pair of gloves, whether golf-related or not, should be comfortable, and thankfully, these were. 

Even without putting them on, the fabric has a premium feel to it - these are definitely up there among the best golf gloves for winter. Additionally, the elasticated cuff and velcro closure system deliver a snug and precise fit, while stretch properties further enhance this attribute plus allow for freedom of finger movement.

There are also a whopping eight sizes to choose from for men and women, and the fact they can be put through the wash without losing performance is the icing on the cake.

Being able to trust your equipment when the heavens open and the temperature drops is essential, and this set of winter gloves provides this and then some.

A lifelong golf fan, Andy graduated in 2019 with a degree in Sports Journalism and got his first role in the industry as the Instruction Editor for National Club Golfer. From there, he went on to enjoy a spell freelancing for Stats Perform producing football reports, and then for RacingNews365 covering Formula 1. However, he couldn't turn down the opportunity to get back into the sport he grew up watching and playing and now covers a mixture of equipment, instruction and news for Golf Monthly's website and print title.

Andy took up the game at the age of seven and even harboured ambitions of a career in the professional ranks for a spell. That didn’t pan out, but he still enjoys his weekend golf at Royal Troon and holds a scratch handicap. As a side note, he's made five holes-in-one and could quite possibly be Retief Goosen’s biggest fan.
