Ping SensorWarm Winter Trouser

4.5 star review

RRP £100

I have never owned a pair of winter golf trousers before. I tend of wear my summer chinos with some thermal leggings under and suffer feeling a bit like the Michelin man climbing up and down the hills at my home club.

The Ping SenorWarm winter trousers are a revelation for me, they are thick, have brushed fabric insides that help keep you warm, they are water and wind resistant so brilliant in any conditions.

The pocket configuration is superb, with a hidden button on one of the back pockets and a gripper strip in the other to stop your scorecard holder slipping out as you walk around the course. There’s also a zip pocket inside one of the front pockets and combine that with a waistband gripper to stop your shirt from untucking. These really are the ultimate trouser. 

PROS

  • Very Warm
  • Comfortable
  • Great pockets

CONS

  • Wouldn’t wear off course

Sizes: Waist 30-42 & Inseam 30-36
Colours: Fig/Stormcloud/Navy/Black

Ping Norse S5 Zoned Hooded Jacket 

4 star review

RRP £160

The hoodie is fast becoming the staple of a golfers wardrobe, if you are one of those golfers then the Ping Norse S5 Zoned Hooded Jacket would be a strong addition to yours, if not then you should jump on board the train. 

Where the Ping Norse S5 Zoned Hooded Jacket stands out from other hoodies is that it possesses more the characteristic of a jacket as opposed to a jumper. The quilted design provides additional insulation, though don’t mistake this as being overly warm, while the polyester material offers a water-resistant finish. A nice feature are the two zip pockets that come with a soft brushed lining, ideal for keeping your hands warm between shots. 

The quarter zip makes it is easy to slip on and the lightweight nature of the jacket means it can be comfortably worn over multiple layers. 

The hood is made of waterproof material which makes it very light but not so much that it becomes an inconvenience in the wind. Overall this Ping hooded jacket is a strong performer among its peers. 

PROS

  • Looks great
  • Excellent fit
  • Brushed lined zip pockets

CONS

  • Price

Sizes: S-3XL
Colours: Black, Stormcloud/Stone Blue 

Ping Norse
S5 Vest

4.5 star review

RRP £120

In my opinion a Gilet is a must have for any golfer, wearable in all seasons and an unrestrictive additional layer. The Ping Norse S5 Vest ticks both boxes and is also lightweight, insulated, stylish and fits well. 

With PrimaLoft Silver Active insulation throughout and a quilted design it provides a level of warmth that belies its lightweight feel. I am a big fan of gilets for this very reason, they can be worn over a short sleeve shirt as additional protection from the wind or over multiple layers for additional warmth and in both circumstances the Norse S5 Vest performs exceptionally. In addition to this the material is water resistant and more than able to hold up in a light shower. 

Another aspect of the Norse S5 Vest is that it is very understated and as such could easily be worn off the course without feeling like you have just come from the course. As stated I would advise all golfers to invest in a gilet and you need not look further than the latest offering from Ping. 

PROS

  • Looks great
  • Excellent fit
  • Lightweight

CONS

  • Pockets are not lined

Sizes: S-3XL
Colour: Black, Stone Blue

Ping Vernon Jacket 

4.5 star review

RRP £95

Out of the packet, the first impressions of the Ping Vernon Jacket was that it was quite thick, though there need not have been any concern as the jacket is still incredibly lightweight.  

A bug bear of mine is when golf outer layers do not actually provide the warmth required resulting in the need to wear multiple layers. This is not an issue for the Ping Vernon as the quilted front provides excellent insulation and warmth, negating the need for multiple layers. In addition to this the stretch fleece material used for the arms, back and hem allow for complete freedom of movement in the golf swing.  

While not advertised as waterproof it does have a water-resistant finish which holds up well in light rain and a nice additional feature is the two front zip pockets which are both lined. 

The classic colour options and style of the jacket make it eminently wearable off the course as much as on it which is becoming a notable feature of PING clothing. 

PROS

  • Good value
  • Well insulated
  • Lightweight

CONS

  • Length of jacket

Sizes: S-3XL  
Colour: Asphalt/Black, Classic Blue/Black, Navy, Fig/Black

Ladies Ping Kaityln Trousers

5 star review

RRP £95

The Kaitlyn trousers are Ping’s winter option for women. On the outside, the design is very simple. I wore the black pair and there is a fly fastening with a single button, with a small Ping metal tag.

The Kaitlyn trousers has two pockets at both the back and front with an additional inner zip pocket on the front left pocket.  

In terms of fit I wore my usual UK size 10 which was very comfortable. They are a straight leg fit and come with belt loops and elastic on the waist band.

I’m 5ft 8 and wore the regular length which sat quite well on me, Ping does do a longer and shorter option with size measurements on the website.  

Alongside being water resistant these trousers are fleece lined for comfort and warmth, with Ping’s Sensorwarm technology. Out on the course they were easy to move and bend in and I loved the fact that all the pockets were also fleece lined. 

PROS: 

  • True to size 
  • Wind and water-resistant  
  • Very comfortable 

CONS: 

  • None

Colours: Black, Navy, Purple Plum 

Sizes: UK 6-20 

Ladies Ping Freda

5 star review

RRP £120

The Ping Freda is a full zip waterproof jacket that features two zip pockets on each side with additional velcro strips to provide further protection. Made from 100% polyester this jacket is incredibly lightweight and with Ping’s integrated SensorDry technology it is also very breathable.  

In terms of fit I wore this in my regular top size which is a UK size 12. It certainly wasn’t too tight or difficult to swing in which is great. I liked that it didn’t feel too heavy on but also provided a bit of warmth so that if you didn’t want to wear a mid layer under you wouldn’t be too cold. The Freda jacket has velcro on the cuffs so that they can be adjusted to your preferred fit. There are also toggles on the bottom cuff on the jacket on the inside so that you can alter the fit there.  

And well, the last big question and probably the most important to answer…yes, its waterproof! I wore this during a round with some heavy rain and I can confidently report that this jacket kept me comfortably dry. If this isn’t reassuring enough this jacket comes with a 3-year waterproof guarantee from Ping.   

PROS: 

  • Fits well and has adjustable toggles inside 
  • Velcro and zips on pockets  
  • Great range of colours 

CONS: 

  • None 

Colours: White/Black, Flame/Black, Aquatic/Scuba Blue, Oxford Blue/White, Rosebud/White

Sizes: UK 6-20

Ladies Ping
Juno

5 star review

RRP £80

The Juno trousers from Ping are the only waterproof trousers they offer, and I can see why. These trousers really tick every box that you would want when it comes to a pair of waterproof trousers.  

I wore these in my regular trouser size which is a UK 10. I enjoyed how they fit around the waist and there is an adjustable toggle on the inside, with an elasticated waist band. There is also belt loops on these trousers if you want to add a belt. I am 5ft 8 and wore the regular length which were perfect, but Ping does offer a shorter and longer option depending on your height.  

Out on the course, these were enjoyable to wear. There are pockets at the front that have a singular press stud fasten and one back pocket that has velcro patches. Ping states that these Juno trousers are fully seam-sealed and with a 3-year waterproof guarantee these are a great addition to any golfer’s wardrobe for this winter.  They held up well in the rain and afterwards dried off fairly quickly. As they are so lightweight, they folded down to a reasonably small size, meaning they didn’t take up the entire pocket in my golf bag.  

PROS: 

  • Fits well and has adjustable toggles inside 
  • Has belt loops 
  • Lightweight 

CONS: 

  • None 

Colours:  Black 

Sizes: UK 6-20 

Ladies Ping
Sonya

4.5 star review

RRP £65

The outer side is smooth and the inside has a gridded fleece lining. For a mid layer it was thick yet still very stretchy. The fabric is made from a combination of 88% polyester and 12% elastane. The polyester has been created using recycled content, making this a very sustainable product.

I really enjoyed how this mid layer fit. I tried this in my regular top size a UK 12. Being 5ft 9 I sometimes struggle to find mid layers that are long enough for my body and arms but this ticked all of the boxes for me. It fit comfortably and there was plenty of elasticity to allow me to swing freely.

I wore this both with and without a base layer under to test how it got on. There was no restriction of movement with either.

I think this is a very versatile item of clothing. Being a quarter zip fleece it can be worn in many different scenarios such as going on a walk or wearing as an extra layer to go to the gym. I would definitely be happy to wear this off the course.

PROS

  • Very stretchy
  • Fleece lined
  • Very versatile

CONS

  • Thickness might put some people off initially

Colours: Flamingo, Navy, Laguna, Black, White, Black/White, Purple Plum

Sizes: UK 6-20 

Ladies Ping Niki Jacket

5 star review

RRP £110

The Printed hybrid jacket from Ping comes in three different designs that feature three different colourways. As you can see, I tested the Purple Plum Multi design which in my opinion looks great. I wore a Uk size 12 which is my standard size, and I couldn’t fault the fit.  

All the Niki jackets features a patterned torso on the front with a full zip design. This section is fully insulated filled with partially plant-based insulation. The sleeves and back of the jacket is a block colour with a soft-shell feel. The jacket is also lined with a brushed fleece design helping with the thermal construction of the jacket.  

This jacket is very diverse thanks to its wind and water-resistant properties. The Niki jacket offers two pockets, one on each side which both have zips on which is great for keeping your valuables secure during the round.  

Overall, I really enjoyed wearing this jacket and as it gets colder, I know it will be getting plenty of wear both on and off the course.  

PROS: 

  • Plenty of padding and warmth  
  • Colourful pattern/design 
  • Fits well 
  • Zip pockets 

CONS: 

  • Might be considered too thick for some players to swing in 

Colours:  Purple Plum Multi, Black Multi, Oxford Blue Multi 

Sizes: UK 6-20 

Ping Women’s Dot Fleece Vest

4.5 star review

RRP £75

The plain block colour design welcomes a black and white elasticated panel on the back hem of the gilet and a small square on the back of the collar. Ping offers this gilet in both black and white, each having opposite detailing on the zip and pockets. The simple design means that this is a great piece to match with any outfit.

I wore this gilet in my usual UK12. I thought that it fit nicely, allowing plenty of room to swing with ease. My only slight criticism is that the Ping mid-layers sit longer than the gilet, but this is only me being a little picky.

I’ve worn this several times out on the course, and it’s definitely becoming my go-to gilet. With the weather getting a little better, I no longer need a gilet that provides loads of warmth but something a little lighter to just add a little more coverage at the start of an early morning round. This definitely fills that role.

PROS

  • Water-resistant
  • Fleece lined
  • Zipped pockets

CONS

  • Nothing really!

Colours: Black, White

Sizes: UK 6-20

Ping SensorDry S2 Pro Jacket   

4.5 star review
Waterproof golf jacket

RRP £180

The first thing I noticed when putting on the PING SensorDry S2 Pro Jacket was the brushed tricot inner lining which provides both additional comfort and warmth. The only issue I did have with the lining, albeit a minor one, was it meant having to take my glove off to put the jacket on which is not ideal when it is raining. 

A feature I did like was the adjustable nature of the collars, neck and the shock cord on the hem, all of which felt like they were all contributing to minimising the opportunity for water to encroach. 

The jacket has a classic aesthetic and comes in a choice of colours meaning there should be something to suit everyone. Most importantly the PING SensorDry S2 Pro Jacket performed well in wet weather and allowed a freedom of movement that meant the golf swing was completely unrestricted, something I have not always found in other waterpoof jackets. 

PROS

  • Freedom of movement
  • Lightweight
  • Waterproof

CONS

  • Inner lining makes it hard to put on while wearing a glove 

Sizes: S – XXXL 
Colour: Black/Asphalt, Classic Blue/Black, Oxford Blue/Black, Poppy/Asphalt 

Ping SensorDry Bucket Hat

5 star review
Best Winter Golf Hats

RRP £45

I have to declare that I am a big fan of a bucket hat, particularly a waterproof one. As a glasses wearer, a perennial issue for me on the golf course is rain, and keeping said rain off of my glasses. The Ping SensorDry Bucket Hat does this perfectly, the wide brim offers full protection, even if the rain is coming in at an angle. The front of the brim also has a firm but not particularly noticeable peak, which adds another layer of protection in keeping the rain off your face. 

The hat is lightweight and breathable which is great, but the feature I really like is that it truly is a one-size-fits-all. There is a hidden size adjuster, meaning that the hat can be adjusted to fit all. For those worried about windy conditions, then there is an adjustable cord which can be tightened to negate this, this cord is also removable. 

For anyone looking for a top-performing bucket hat, I would 100% recommend the Ping SensorDry. 

PROS: 

  • Wide Brim 
  • Waterproof 
  • Adjustable 

CONS: 

  • None 


Sizes: One Size 
Colour: Black 

Ping SensorDry Waterproof Trousers

4.5 star review
waterproof golf trousers

RRP £80

First and foremost when it comes to waterproofs you want them to do as advertised and when it comes to top performing waterproof trousers the Ping SensorDry Trouser is right up there, verified both on the course and off it while walking the dog! 

I often find with waterproof trousers that they are oversized and baggy, owing to the fact they are usually worn over another pair of trousers. What I particularly like about the PING SensorDry Trouser is the fit. They have a fully elasticated waist but still have a performance fit and feel to them. The waist can still be adjusted with a hidden adjustable cord, though I did not find this necessary. 

An essential for waterproofs is that they are easy to slip on over shoes when caught short in the rain and the ankle zip comes up to just below the knee meaning that is the case with the SensorDry. 

Lastly the stretch material used is unrestrictive and makes the trouser very breathable. These trousers are a great lightweight option and ones I would highly recommend. 

PROS

  • Excellent value 
  • Lightweight 
  • Waterproof

CONS

  • Buttons on the pockets are and inconvenience 

Sizes: S-3XL
Colours: Black

Ping Paulina bobble hat

5 star review

RRP £25

This stylish cable knit bobble hat from Ping is the perfect woolly hat to get you through the winter months. I wore the gorgeous lavender haze colourway but if this isn’t to your taste there is three other options. Each hat has a small metal Ping logo meaning there is no right or wrong way to wear it. The one size design fit my head comfortably and had a decent amount of elasticity.  

Created using Ping’s Sensorwarm technology with a fleece lining the outer design shouldn’t fool you. There is no chance of cool air making its way through the gaps in the wool like you might find in some wool products.  

Not only is this a great addition to your round of golf this winter but the stylish basic design means that it would be excellent in any situation this autumn/winter. It will certainly be getting plenty of wear by me.  

PROS

  • Looks great 
  • Fits well 
  • Fleece thermal lining 

CONS

  • Colours might not be to everyone’s taste 

Sizes: One size

Colours: Lavender Haze, Stone Blue, Navy, Rosebud

With Ping’s winter apparel as part of your golfing arsenal, you’ll be well-equipped to face the challenges of the season and come out swinging, no matter the conditions.
