Callaway Heavy Weight Insulated Ladies Golf Jacket Review

This has become one of those jackets that you find yourself wearing most of the time. It isn't the most flattering and on first inspection as it is an unusual shape. The jacket outer is made from a water repellant slightly iridescent nylon. Half way down the waist the material scoops up at the back and the base is finished with a soft fleece. This keeps your lower back warm and dry. The design also lends itself to other activities such as riding and cycling. Very versatile indeed.

Callaway's Swingtech design means the jacket is comfortable from the moment you pull it on and unbelievably easy to swing in. It maintains a fairly snug fit yet you can move with zero restrictions. This is a serious plus point. It weighs so little yet keeps you so warm. In the recent cold snap I was out and about in -6 degrees celsius and only one layer under the jacket and I never felt chilly. Plus when it rained it kept the moisture from reaching my skin. 

The Peacoat colour is a favourite of mine in the Callaway range, resembling the darkest purple of a peacock feather. This jacket is also available in Caviar. With that pearlescent effect it looks almost smokey black, making it one of the leading options visually among the best women's golf clothes for this year.

The zip on the jacket is a stunning pearlescent lilac and really easy to use. The only grumble I had was the zips on the pockets were a bit more temperamental. Mine got a bit stuck after a few months of use. However the pockets are so deep and well designed that nothing fell out during my testing even with them unzipped.

It is very well priced at £89 RRP which for a jacket that does it all is brilliant value for money. I think the women's golf apparel market is going from strength to strength and I'm excited to see what the big brands will offer in 2023. Regardless, this jacket from Callaway is sure to become a firm favorite among women golfers.
