A good pair of rain pants is something that every golfer should have in their bag ‘just in case’. Even when you think the weather should be nice for a day out on the links, having your rain pants tucked away in your golf bag is a good idea. Whether you need them when it comes on to rain – or just because it is a little cold in the morning or evening, having a pair of rain pants to slip on can help to keep you comfortable throughout the round.
The NIKE Men’s Storm-FIT rain pants have all of the basic features that you should be looking for in a pair of rain pants. They are weatherproof thanks to their Storm-FIT technology, and feature a stretch fabric to permit ease of movement so you can still make your swing even while wearing these pants. Some golf rain pants can be so bulky and heavy that it is hard to maintain your normal swing – but that is not the case with this pair. The hand pockets have zippers so you can keep the contents of your pockets dry while you are walking up the fairway or riding in the cart. With 10’’ zippers on the sides of the legs down at the bottom, you shouldn’t have any trouble sliding these rain pants on and off – even without taking off your golf shoes.
Comfort is Key when playing in the Rain
Given the choice, almost every golfer should prefer to play under dry conditions than have to deal with the rain. However, if you are a serious golfer, chances are good that you will encounter some rainy conditions from time to time out on the course. The key to keeping your golf game on track in the rain is staying both dry and comfortable throughout the round. If you start to feel wet – or restricted by your rain gear – you might lose your patience and focus along the way. Good rain gear should allow you to mostly forget about the rain that is falling and keep your mind focused on hitting good shots and getting the ball in the hole.
While the name ‘rain pants’ indicates that this garment is meant for wet conditions, it also can be very useful in the cold as well. Specifically, when you tee off early in the morning and are expecting a warm, sunny day ahead, your rain pants can be the perfect way to stay warm until the sun heats things up. If you are wearing shorts, simply slip your rain pants on for the first couple holes until the temperature gets to a point that you are comfortable with. Then, just tuck the rain pants away in your bag and go on enjoying a beautiful day on the course.
