Now that the rain is finally calming down, we can hit the links without having to reschedule our tee times week after week. But before you tee off, make sure you have all the right clothing and gear you need to maximize your performance. Athleisure icon lululemon has stocked up its store with essential pieces for when you’re ready to take your next swing. To help you out, we’ve compiled a guide to the best golf gear available, featuring pieces exclusively from the apparel brand.
Days Shade Ball Cap
You’ll need to keep your sun out of your face to give yourself your best chance of shooting par (or better). With a strap adjustment on the back and an understated yet versatile style, lululemon’s lightweight Days Shade Ball Cap is water-repellant on the outside and sports a mesh fabric sweatband on the inside that can wick moisture when the afternoon really heats up.
Power Stride Tab Sock
Underneath every great golf shoe should be a quality golf sock. This Power Stride Tab Sock from lululemon is meant to serve you well while going unnoticed. Designed for an active lifestyle, the 95%-nylon socks provide 360-degree arch support and a 3D-knit PerformaHeel shape in the back to keep your heels feeling locked in place.
Back to Life Sport Bottle
Staying hydrated is a must on the fairway, so you’ll need a vacuum-insulated water bottle that will be there when you need it. Constructed with double-wall stainless steel that won’t transfer any flavor to your beverage, the Back to Life Sport Bottle sports a leak-free lid with a spout for drinking, although it comes all the way off for adding ice cubes with ease. What’s more, the outside is made so it won’t slip out of your hands in wetter conditions.
Both Ways Reversible Bucket Hat
For the sunniest of days on the golf course, grab lululemon’s Both Ways Reversible Bucket Hat, which covers you from all angles and sports dual looks with each model. Super lightweight, the recycled polyester and elastane cap features four-way stretch and sweat-wicking properties as well.
Commission Golf Short 10″
While shorter inseams are popular these days, you’ll want something a little longer out on the links to give you extra mobility and protection. Built to offer breathing room in the glutes and thighs, the Commission Golf Short from lululemon features a 10-inch inseam and elastic panels on the waistband for stretchiness. These shorts are also made from abrasion- and water-resistant nylon for longevity and comfort, while the pocket construction is perfect for time spent on the golf course, equipped with a drop-in pocket on one side to store your tees.
Logo Sport Polo Short Sleeve
lululemon’s Logo Sport Polo Short Sleeve is a relaxed polo shirt for days on the green. Designed to be spacious in your chest and waist areas, it provides a four-way stretch so it won’t get in your way when teeing off and is built with UV protection at UPF 40+ to combat any potential rays seeping through. Resistant to abrasions, the recycled nylon material is designed to wick sweat and is treated with No-Stink Zinc to obliterate odors.
Metal Vent Tech Midweight Half Zip
Designed to protect you from the elements while offering proper ventilation along the way, lululemon’s Metal Vent Tech Midweight Half Zip is an outer layer for running but perfect for the links as well. Using the minimum amount of seams possible to prevent chafing, the Half Zip jacket is given a four-way stretch for comfort while the sweat-wicking polyester-nylon blend is integrated with an open-hole mesh for breathability.
Commission Relaxed-Tapered Golf Pant 30″
Pants are not always easy to wear all game long, but lululemon’s Commission Relaxed-Tapered Golf Pant with 30-inch seams is designed to be comfortable for the entire round. With an elastic waistband and a ventilated gusset for mobility, these trousers give you some extra room at your glutes and thighs as well. The pockets are perfect for golfers, with inner compartments for holding tees and snap-button compartments in the back for your wallet and scorecard.
Down for It All Vest
Keep your arms freed up by switching to a vest on colder days out on the links. Available in bone, navy blue, and black, the Down for It All Vest is insulated with 700-fill-power goose down, while PrimaLoft synthetic insulation is added to the areas most exposed to the elements. Equipped with a two-way zipper, it’s shelled with water-repellant Glyde fabric in case you face some drizzling.
Just because summer is mere weeks away doesn’t mean it won’t get too cold for a standard polo. If you want a jacket that will provide you with both warmth and mobility in cooler conditions, check out lululemon’s Expeditionist Jacket, made from water-repellent nylon and equipped with underarm vents so you won’t overheat. Available in black, white, navy, and Night Sea, this coat is made to go with anything in your wardrobe.
