Mizuno SS17 Apparel

We tested Mizuno's apparel in a variety of weather conditions

Mizuno-SS17-apparel review
Golf Monthly Verdict

Having tested the apparel in terrible conditions they came through with flying colours. Minimal water got through, which I only noticed back in the locker room. The bright colours stood out without being over the top. Very comfortable and practical.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    The waterproofs did the job while looking the part too. The clever use of bright colours will appeal to all and the garments were comfortable and practical to wear.

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    No trousers are offered within the SS17 range, which means you can't complete a head-to-toe Mizuno look.

Styling

The mid-layer and waterproof top were bright and vibrant but still remained stylish while the polo shirt was slightly more bold in terms of design and patterns. Mizuno unfortunately did not offer trousers in the Spring/Summer 2017 range to complete the look.

Fit

I am usually a medium but I was provided with large which actually fitted very well, you might find yourself going up a size should you switch to wearing Mizuno - it's certainly worth bearing in mind if you don’t try on before you buy. The waterproofs slipped on easily, very helpful if you get caught in a quick passing shower, but did not feel loose or baggy, which can create a heavy feel that makes you feel tired earlier than you'd have liked.

Comfort

All the garments were very light and the stretchy fabric did not impede my swing in any way. The mid-layer was very warm with a nice soft material and the waterproofs were the most lightweight I’ve experienced, helping me carry on when the rain was at its worst.

Performance

The waterproofs were tested in the most extreme conditions and were not found wanting. I remained dry and comfortable throughout the round. The mid-layer kept me warm enough throughout the miserable weather and the waterproof trousers get my lower half bone dry.
