Producing everything from golf shoes to clothing, in this review we have put their Brushed Back Tech Quarter Zip Pullover through its paces, an item that, you could argue, is slightly different to what we are used to seeing with the G/FORE brand.

Like the best golf quarter zips, looks play a huge part and, with the Brushed Back Tech, it's no exception, as the subtle eye-catching aesthetic gives it a wide-range of appeal to many golfers. 

As mentioned, it is somewhat of a step away from the bolder, louder prints we are so used to seeing from the clothing brand, but this is no issue whatsoever, as it features a G/FORE logo when the zip is fully pulled up and is also available in numerous block colorways so, whatever outfit you choose for the day, it should suit.

Constructed of brushed back tech terry fabric, it is incredibly soft to the touch and very stretchable. Certainly, in testing, we found that it did not restrict the swing at all, allowing to commit fully to every shot. What's more, despite being super lightweight and thin, it has good of levels of warmth, meaning it can be worn all-year round as part of a layered outfit, or even with a golf vest.

If we were to list one slight negative, it is that the sleeves don't have elasticated cuffs, so it does mean the fit can be a little hit and miss depending on your arm length. However, the overall comfort we found from this pullover was great and certainly up there with other models on the market.

One final point is that the Brushed Back Tech Quarter Zip Pullover is constructed with moisture-wicking material that we would find in the best lightweight golf jackets, whilst the UV protection on offer only heightens it further as a garment that is perfect all weather conditions. Put simply, G/FORE have delivered once again in the premium sector!
