FootJoy Fleece Quilted Jacket Review - We test out FootJoy's new Fleece Quilted Jacket on and off the golf course.
FootJoy Fleece Quilted Jacket Review
This jacket is for golfers who want a warm, stylish option they can wear on and off the golf course.
Key technology The FootJoy Fleece Quilted jacket has a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating, which offers added wet-weather protection. Lightweight insulation keeps the golfer warm, while the stretch properties allow the wearer to swing freely.
A full-length water-repellent zip up to the neck also helps to keep out the elements. It features two zipped side pockets for additional storage or hand warming and a zipped ‘scorecard’ pocket on the chest. It comes in black, navy or charcoal grey.
The first thing you notice is the light weight and the soft feel inside the arms as you slide your hands in, thanks to the fleece lining. It comfortably keeps you warm without feeling bulky and both the body and arm sections offer a surprisingly high level of water resistance, which is helpful should a passing shower arrive.
We feel like the styling is neutral and subtle enough to work off the course - in fact we did find ourself wearing it to the pub and to meetings such is the smart but fairly casual vibe - but the quilted pattern on the front should add enough style to appeal to the modern golfer on the course.
Performance wise, this jacket has no problem in keeping you warm, dry and looking the part on and off the course.
Mobility isn’t an issue, either, as the stretchy material allows you to swing unimpeded. The front pockets regularly come in handy on cold days, while the elasticated cuffs stop the sleeves hanging down too far.
You could argue that there’s a little excess material around the torso, and that the styling is more appropriate off the course than on it, but the Quilted jacket has proven to be a worthy, versatile companion in the changeable British weather.
