Under Armour Drive Pants Review

A good pair of golf pants or trousers must do several things, they should provide comfort and be able to move and stretch properly to not only deal with the golf swing, but the other movements we make on the golf course like lining up putts or teeing up. Additionally they should give some degree of protection from the elements, and look stylish as well. Well Under Armour has become a go-to brand for golf trousers from Jordan Spieth down to amateur players. With models like the Drive, it is not hard to see why. 

Constructed from a high-performance, mobile fabric, the Drive trousers have a streamlined fit to reduce drag on every swing. The stretch woven fabric is light and durable so you don’t feel restricted and hampered during the course of a round. They can deal with trips to bushes, heather and other troublesome flora as well which is vital for a good pair of pants lasting a long time. Additionally they have a modern flat-front design, a stretch waistband and five pockets.

At the heart of the design also lies Under Armour’s Storm technology, something that has been around for a while now, but the brand’s engineers continue to fine-tune it. In the Drive pants it helps repel water without sacrificing any breathability, and they are also windproof as well.

Trousers can be a difficult sell but we really liked wearing these – even on cold spring mornings they provide that little extra warmth, and yet aren’t too hot when the temperature rises. They’re also easy to clean and have spacious pockets for all your golfing accessories. Finally they come in six nice colors, and you can you get them in the regular design (pictured above) as well as Tapered Fit and a Slim Taper fit. Sizes range from 30/30 to 42/34, so whatever your body shape you should be well catered for.
