Best Golf Jacket for Winter

heated jacket
Mobile Warming Gear is a company dedicated to provide the protection and needs of golfers who play in golf courses even during the cold and wet winter season. They recently launched a line of heated waterproof jackets especially designed for golf enthusiasts.

The materials used for the jacket are all waterproof, lightweight and breathable. Also featured is a 7.4-volt rechargeable lithium battery which allows temperature adjustment ranging from 90 to 130 degrees. The battery pack can last up to 10 hours, depending on its setting.

Mobile Warming Gear’s General Manager, Keith Apple, said, “When I started working for this company that made heated jackets, I was in the ski industry. I was giving my son-in-law heated vests made for skiing. He said, ‘this may work in golf.’ I said, ‘what would I have to do?’”

Apple’s son-in-law, Joe Lusardi, is an avid golfer and an assistant pro at the Locust Hill Country Club. He and his friends suggested on making the jacket’s collar lowered and to use lightweight stretch panel material in the arm pit side to provide flexibility during golf swings. USGA, eventually, gave the jacket its approval.

“The jacket is totally breathable and the membrane is similar to Gore-Tex. It’s 100 percent waterproof and has a waterproof zipper,” Apple added. Available in different styles for men and women, the jacket costs around $200 while vest-types at $160.
