BUY­ERS’ GUIDE

Golf Monthly - - Gm Promotion -

The pop­u­lar­ity of the clas­sic golf jumper may have dwin­dled in re­cent years with the emer­gence of per­for­mance mid-lay­ers made from modern fab­rics. But while these spe­cial tops may look cut­ting-edge and claim to do amaz­ing things with your per­spi­ra­tion, some still swear by the stylish and so­phis­ti­cated look of a jumper.

They come un­der the mid-layer cat­e­gory and are highly ver­sa­tile gar­ments. Not only do they nul­lify the cool­ing ef­fect of the wind, but many also of­fer warm­ing prop­er­ties and even an el­e­ment of shower-proof­ing, mean­ing you don’t have to add un­nec­es­sary lay­ers in a light driz­zle. They also come in a wide range of fits. A loos­e­fit­ting mid-layer may feel roomy and com­fort­able, but the ex­cess ma­te­rial could in­ter­fere with your swing, so be sure to have a few prac­tice swings in the shop be­fore mak­ing your pur­chase to en­sure that your cho­sen jumper pro­vides both the look and free­dom of move­ment you’re af­ter.

Most of to­day’s jumpers are light­weight, mak­ing them ideal for bag car­ri­ers, and breath­able, en­sur­ing that you don’t get too warm out on the links. Ma­te­rial varies from tra­di­tional wool to stretchy mois­ture-wick­ing fab­rics, so you can choose which­ever look and feel you pre­fer.
