2021 Holiday Gift Guide – Apparel Ideas
Galway Bay Rain Gear
Golf is an outdoor sport and sometimes it rains, so why not be prepared with the best rain gear available? You never know when it’ll rain in Florida, but when it does you better be ready! Galway Bay’s awesome waterproof jacket is always in the trunk of my car or golf bag, ready to deploy at a moments notice. I prefer the sleeveless model, but they have something for everyone. Check them out on their website, or Amazon.
DVRX Performance Pants
Devereux is a men’s golf brand that brings a fresh take to the sometimes stale world of golf. The line aids a lifestyle that will allow for golf to be more inclusive, inviting and straight-up less boring. They design and deliver apparel that the world of golf not only wants, but needs, welcoming the next generation of golfers who are breaking stigmas and outdated standards. As one of the only direct-to-consumer golf apparel brands, they have the freedom to create apparel for the kind of golf we like, the kind where you untuck your shirt, wear your hat backwards and leave your belt at home, but utilizing the functional fabrics of golf clothing.

TRUE linkswear + Foray X + Sport
The walking-focused golf shoe brand headed up by Jason Moore and his brother / PGA TOUR player Ryan Moore debuted several new lines this year including its wildly popular TRUE Pebble and Dead Golfer collections. Rounding into the final stretch of 2021, these Pacific Northwest pioneers are bolstered by an $11.25 million investment from private equity firm KarpReilly.
Recently, TRUE debuted the limited-edition Queen of Clubs Foray X True Knit II ($175), its first collaboration with the women’s golf apparel brand Foray Golf. The shoes come wrapped in a Foray-designed carry bag perfect for travel or just storing the shoes at home. Foray has also added several unique finishes to the shoe, including a translucent sole under which sits the Queen of Clubs artwork.
The Moore brothers are all about comfort and performance, and TRUE’s Sport Series was just unveiled in November to rave reviews. Engineered for the eternal pursuit of par and the grinders and early risers, as the TRUE crew likes to say, the Sport’s adaptive upper is both breathable and waterproof, a one-two punch any diehard golfer would relish. It’s offered in two models, OG ($165) and Lux ($175).
TRUE is planning a Black Friday sale with killer “final sale” deals on older models, big-time savings on top-selling collections and free gift cards with certain levels of spending.
Coming off the heels of a successful Cloud Collection launch and just in time for the holiday season, performance and lifestyle brand TravisMathew, launched their His + Hers Cloud Collection which features their first ever women’s products. Perfect for cozy nights in or busy days running errands, the line consists of seven different items, including a hoodie, crewneck, and lounger pant for both men and women – along with a throw blanket in the same soft, micro-fleece fabric.

G-Tech Apparel – Heated Pouches
I’ve always wondered what those sleeves were that NFL quarterbacks and coaches were using, and now everyone can get one to keep their hands warm in any situation. G-tech’s hand warmers have been used in the NFL, CFL, NBA, MLB, NCAA, PGA Tour, and LPGA Tour. A heated hand warmer is an invaluable piece of gear for those chilly days outdoors, especially for golf. It’s really difficult to play good golf with cold, stiff hands. G-tech keeps your hands toasty for better grip and feel. Their battery powered sleeves feature a patented technology that keeps your hands warm by heating a sort of gel bar in the center of the sleeve. I’ve tested it myself and it really works!

Puma Cloudspun WRMLBL Vest
I love a nice vest, especially because it allows me to swing freely without restriction while still keeping me warm. Being a huge fan of Puma and their stylish and functional golf apparel, it was only fitting that I fall in love with their new Cloudspun WRMLBL Vest. The Cloudspun WRMLBL Vest elevates a course classic with soft Cloudspun fabric and a subtle, Dassler-inspired quilted pattern. With a woven internal label that reads “Stay Warm, Enjoy Golf” you will be reminded to keep smiling no matter how the course is playing.
Radmor Golf Fall + Fall & Winter Collection
Saving the planet one piece of golf apparel at a time is an ambitious resolution. But that’s just what Radmor Golf has set out to do. The Seattle-based golf apparel company is the only brand in the golf industry to eliminate the use of “virgin” polyester at the garment level – a harmful material used in the vast majority of “stretch” and “moisture wicking” fabrics.
In doing so, Radmor Golf has reduced the amount of recycled ocean polyester and recycled nylon to just 10%, almost unheard of in the apparel business. Instead, founders Scott Morrison and Bob Conrad rely primarily on BCI organic and extra-long-staple Pima cotton, two of the softest, most durable cottons available.
Radmor’s new fall and winter collection features a curated assortment of high-performance, refreshingly casual polo shirts, corduroy and knit pants and t-shirts in fall colors like sage and blue graphite. And as golfers battle the elements this winter, or just want to stay toasty, Radmor’s hoodies, sweatshirts are popular plays, and its weather-resistant Moscrip Jacket is perfect for rainy or blustery days.
For Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Radmor is planning a “site-wide” sale with savings ranging from 30 to 50%.
