Best Winter Golf Trousers


Peter Millar EB66 Performance
5 Pocket Trouser

5 star review
best winter golf trousers

RRP £125

As someone who has a tennis score trouser measurement – forty/thirty – I do struggle to find trousers that are a good fit. To cut a long story short I am now a fully signed up member of the Peter Millar fan club. Everything about these trousers shouts out quality & comfort.  

The first thing that is noticeable when putting them on is the comfortable stretch aspect to them. This is ideal, if like me, you might have to take a number of differing stances as you move between fairway, trees & rough! The 5 pocket feature is a nice touch (two back, two front + a smaller pocket in the front right) even if the smaller pocket I personally would not really find a use for. 

I would be more than happy to wear these off the course, be it social or even work.   The trousers come in a good variety of colours and sizes & though it is a premium price (£125) they are a quality product. 

The only thing to note is that these are a non-iron & dry clean product that are to be washed on a cold setting. 

PROS

  • Comfortable Stretch Fit
  • Versatile – can be worn on & off course
  • Good colour choice

CONS

  • Pricey

Sizes: Waist 30-42 & Inseam 30-34
Colour: Iron, Cape Red, Gale Grey, Navy, Black, Khaki, British Grey, Stone, Billiard, Port Blue, British Tan, Lakeside, Balsam, Celeste 

G/Fore
5 Pocket Trouser

5 star review
best winter golf trousers

RRP £145

G/Fore do a great job of making clothes that are suitable on and off the golf course, and the Core 5 Pocket trousers are no different.

Styled more like fashionable jeans than golf trousers, these straight legged chinos are stretchier than they look making getting up and down to line your putt up on the green very easy.

They are quite thick so keep you warm in the wind and cool conditions and the 3 colours they are available in are very neutral and therefore its quite hard to go wrong when picking out an outfit.

The front pockets are a bit tight to get in and out of when searching for tees and ball markers, especially when wearing a glove, but overall these are quality trousers and I could easily live and play golf in these for the rest of my life. 


PROS

  • Stylish
  • Warm
  • Smart of course

CONS

  • Expensive

Sizes: Waist 30-40 & Inseam 30-34
Colour: Twilight/Stone/Onyx 

Oscar Jacobson
Douglas Trouser

4.5 star review
best winter golf trousers

RRP £79.99

The Douglas water repellent trousers are an upcoming release for the Autumn Winter Oscar Jacobson apparel. They are lightweight, with four-way stretch fabric making mobility really easy.

The coating beads water away from the trousers to ensure they stay dry throughout your round and in the clubhouse afterwards. I had no issues manoeuvring around the rough or leaning down to read putts, they were nice and forgiving around my legs and waist.

The pocket space was also very helpful, two large front pockets and the same on the back of the trousers. I personally would prefer a slimmer fitting trouser, they fit great for the top half, but I would prefer a slimmer finish around the ankle. However, if you prefer the loose fit then these are ideal for you.   

Overall, a good addition to the trouser collection, looks smart and effective for staying dry on the course.  

PROS

  • Really good fit
  • Smart
  • Good pocket space

CONS

  • Slightly flared at the cuff

Sizes: Waist 30-42 & Inseam 29-33
Colours: Black / Navy / Charcoal / Dark Lunar grey

Puma
Warm Pant 

4 star review
best winter golf trousers

RRP £80.00

The Puma Warm Pants were very comfortable, and this was largely down to the loose bottoms and the perfect fit. The completely black colour looks smart, and each pocket was spacious and free while walking the course and fishing for items.

The back pockets are zipped which I always give the greenlight too. The size was a perfect fit, so it’s important not to deviate from your regular fit. The waistband is stretchy, but not too stretchy and leaving you needing a belt.

The trousers come with Duramesh technology and moisture-wicking fabrics which help with the comfort of the product, but also its durability when the wind and the rain come in. The five-pocket design is useful for carrying tees, ball markers and other accessories you need during your round of golf.

These trousers are a solid choice for golfers who want a simple solution to filling gap in their golf wardrobe. The Puma Warm Pant is named so for the fact you feel insulated as well as comfortable too.  

PROS

  • All black colour is smart
  • Great fit
  • 5 pocket design is very useful

CONS

  • Only 2 colour choices

Sizes: Waist 30-38 & Inseam 30-34
Colour: Black & Navy Blazer

Adidas Ultimate365 Tour Wind.Rdy Warm golf pants 

5 star review
best winter golf trousers

RRP £85

Trousers are not talked about enough when it comes to keeping golf enjoyable throughout winter. Most golfers opt to wear waterproof trousers as well as their regular chinos without considering their other options.

The Adidas Ultimate 365 Tour wind.rdy warm golf pants have 2 layers, that stretch nicely, a water repellent fabric to keep you dry during those light showers and tapered legs so that we can still look kind of cool when trying to stay warm.

There’s also the added bonus they are made from recycled plastic, and have a great pocket configuration; two zip fleece lined pockets at the front and a scorecard holding pocket on the back.

I found these trousers extremely warm and comfortable in test, and will be wearing them all winter long.  

PROS

  • Fit is brilliant
  • Very Warm
  • Great pockets

CONS

  • Zero cons

Sizes: XS/S/M/L/XL/XXL  
Colour: Black & Collegiate Navy

FootJoy Performance Tapered Fit Trouser

5 star review
best winter golf trousers

RRP £69.99

These lightweight trousers from FootJoy are constructed from 88% Polyester and 12% Spandex to provide a performance fabric offering breathability and four-way stretch.  

Features include a gripper waistband and four roomy pockets. There’s a choice of no less than eight colours to choose from so you’re sure to find a pair to suit. 

These trousers were a delight to wear on the course due to their comfort, stretchiness and breathability. I really liked the fitted and tapered cut and found that they run true to size.

The nature of the fabric means that these are generally suited to warmer conditions and on-course use. And I have to say that they excel in those conditions. As a footnote, they are easy to care for, do not need ironing, and come highly recommended. 

PROS

  • Premium feel and construction 
  • Smart look & design
  • Great choice of colours

CONS

  • None

Sizes: Waist 30-42 & Inseam 30-34
Colours: Grey, Black, Navy, Charcoal, Red, True blue, Aqua surf, White

Stuburt
Urban II Trouser

4 star review
best winter golf trousers

RRP £49.99

These trousers from Stuburt represent a fresh take on the previous model, with a slimmer fit leg, providing a more tailored appearance. The fabric is constructed from 96% polyester and 4% elastane, and is both lightweight and durable, offering freedom of movement, comfort, breathability and windproof features.  

I’m usually a 32-inch waist and short inside leg. The 32/29 size fitted me just right, so they run true to size, and there’s a good range of sizes. I tested the version in black – one of three colours on offer. 

On the course, the Urban II is comfortable to wear and appears to be well constructed. I was pleased to note a gripper waistband to keep a shirt tucked in. However, the two front pockets were rather on the shallow side, which limits their usefulness.

Because of the lightweight nature of the fabric, it’s straightforward to layer a waterproof over these trousers, making them particularly useful in changeable weather conditions. 

And at just under £50 they represent tremendous value for money.

PROS

  • Comfortable
  • Windproof
  • Great value

CONS

  • Shallow front pockets

Sizes: Waist 30-42 & Inside Seam 29-33 
Colour: Black, French navy, Slate grey


Abacus Druids
Windvent trousers 

4 star review
best winter golf trousers

RRP £99

Abacus is a Swedish brand that has a strong tradition of producing weatherproof gear: so much so that they have clothed the last six European Solheim Cup teams. 

They offer a range of trousers to suit all weather conditions. The Druids windvent trouser is designed for cold, windy, dry weather and it works admirably in this regard. They are made from a stretchable softshell fabric with a brushed inside. The fabric is water repellent but not waterproof. 

They are certainly comfortable, quiet and they are extremely toasty. They have four roomy pockets and a two-button closure at the front. The only design feature I’d have liked to see is a gripper waistband. 

You certainly won’t feel the cold in these trousers, and, although the fabric is badged as breathable, it’s possible to get too hot in less than Arctic conditions. And they aren’t really suitable to layer over with a waterproof due to the thickness of the garment. However, should I ever go on a golfing holiday to Scandinavia, then I’d be sure to pack these! 

PROS

  • Well constructed
  • Comforable
  • Very warm

CONS

  • Use limited to cold and dry conditions

Sizes: Waist 28-40 & Inside seam 30-34
Colour: Navy / Black





 Glenmuir
Ashurst Trousers

4.5 star review
best winter golf trousers

RRP £80

These winter trousers from Glenmuir are designed to defy typical winter weather. They are constructed from 96% polyester, with the addition of 4% elastane, to allow freedom of movement. There’s a brushed inner fleece fabric which offers windproof, thermal and breathable properties. To cap it all, there’s a Teflon DWR finish, so the Ashurst offers protection against the wind, the cold and rain showers. 

I’m typically a 32-inch waist and short inside leg. The 32/29 size fitted me quite closely, which worked ok for my slender shape, but more solid individuals might prefer to go up a size. That said, these trousers offer a tailored look which is not always the case in this category of apparel. 

On the course, the Ashurst is certainly comfortable and snug. I have tested it in showery and blustery conditions, and it has kept me warm and dry. I appreciated the four large pockets with some added detail around the two rear pockets for added visual interest. 

I’m sure you’ll never feel the cold in these impressive trousers, and they will also work well in showery conditions. They would not be my choice if persistent rain is forecast and you’re likely to require a waterproof layer. In this case a lighter trouser would be more appropriate.  

These trousers come highly recommended, are sensibly priced and are easy to care for.  

PROS

  • Comfortable
  • Deep pockets
  • Warm

CONS

  • Quite slim fitting

Sizes: Waist 32-42 & Inside seam 29-33
Colours: Navy / Black

Under Armour
Drive Jogger

4 star review

RRP £70

The more casual look such as the use of hoodies or joggers is slowly taking over golf as players look for more comfort on and off the course. 

Upon first impressions, the Under Armour Driver Joggers are extremely lightweight are very comfortable while offering the same practicality of your regular golf trousers, featuring a belt loop, two open hand and two back pockets. 

Under Armour Storm technology on the exterior means repel water, or snow during the winter, yet don’t sacrifice breathability. 

I love the design of the joggers, however, would find that the only downside to these, for me personally, is the elastic ankle tapering, but this is a personal preference. 

These are a great pairing with the Under Armour Storm SweaterFleece Hoodie if you’re looking for the ultimate casual look or for those colder driving range or practice sessions throughout autumn and winter. 

PROS

  • Great Fit
  • Comfortable
  • Practical

CONS

  • Not a fan of the elastic ankle tapering

Sizes: S-2XL
Colour: Black/Halo Grey

Original Penguin Performance Golf Trouser

4.5 star review

 RRP £60

The Original Penguin Performance Golf Trouser is a great piece of kit, and a pair of trousers that you could arguably wear year-round. For winter wear, the thickness and snugness of the Performance Golf Trouser is welcomed to keep your legs warm in cold conditions.

The snugness also means that these trousers are very comfortable, and the fabric is also stretchy enough to allow for bending down to put a tee in the ground or lining up putts. The fabric also means that the trousers are water resistant, with them able to withstand a lengthy period in persistent rain.

The deep pockets allow for plenty of tees, balls and other golfing equipment, with four pockets in the trousers in total. Original Penguin offer a range of colours including black, grey and navy. One slight snag is that the snugness could be taken for these trousers being too tight, but the 32/32 pair that I had on were spot on. 

PROS

  • Deep pockets
  • Comfortable & warm
  • Colour choices

CONS

  • Tight

Sizes: Waist 30-42 & Inseam 30-34
Colour: Black / Navy / Grey / White / Sand

Stromberg Weather Tech Stretch Trouser

4.5 star review

RRP £59.99

The Stromberg tech trousers are definitely going to be a staple of my winter golf wardrobe. They fit nicely and look really smart in and around the course. There was ample pocket space for the excess tees and balls which is always a positive for myself. The trousers are built with 3 ply performance fabric which works great for comfort, mobility and performance. We did experience some rain when testing which is always useful when testing the wet weather apparel(!) and I am pleased to say the trousers performed as expected. The waterproof membrane built into the layers of the trousers kept me nice and dry for the remainder of the round. They did fit slightly on the large side for myself, so I did require a belt, but otherwise they were ideal. I like the design of the trousers, really clean with subtle branding of Stromberg across the back pocket and on the inseam of the waist band.  

PROS

  • Great fit & smart
  • Good pocket space
  • Great price point

CONS

  • Fitting is slightly on the large side

Sizes: Waist 30-46 & Leg short – long
Colour: Black / Navy / Grey 

Under Armour Men’s Infrared Tapered Pants

5 star review

RRP £80

If you’re looking for a pair of golf trousers for the coming winter months, then look no further than the Under Armour ColdGear Infrared Tapered Pants. 

Firstly, they fit great and are true to size. Secondly, they are extremely comfortable, and thirdly, keep you ever so warm, exactly what you want in trouser during the winter months. 

The warmth and comfort come from Under Armour’s ColdGear Infrared interior lining which uses a soft, thermo-conductive inner coating to retain your body heat. 

There are no issues with keeping your shirt tucked in with these trousers thanks to the stretchable waistband and internal waist grip. 

Performance wise out on the course, the trousers stood up to the test, offering a great range of motion, keeping me dry but without the feeling of overheating. 

I’d highly recommend adding these trousers to your wish list for the coming months. 

PROS

  • Great fit
  • Comfortable
  • Extremely warm

CONS

  • None

Sizes: Waist 30-40 & Inseam 30-34
Colour: Castlerock/Halo grey/Midnight Navy/Black

Castore Onyx Golf Tech Trousers

5 star review

RRP £95

The Castore Onyx Golf Tech Trousers are a great option for the Autumn/Winter golf season. I like to think of myself as a die hard, shorts at all times golfer. But needs must, and the UK winter is either getting colder or I am getting older.  

The Onyx trousers are built with four-way stretch material which performs excellently for mobility around the golf course. Pleasingly this mobility isn’t sacrificed through lack of warmth, they are extremely comfortable, wind resistant and an ideal option for the chillier of golf days. The fit is a classic tapered look which looks great, I personally prefer a slimmer fitted golf trousers so these fit the bill excellently.  

Lastly, the design of the trousers is also very clean. I got to test the black version which looked great. The branding is placed just off the right pocket of the trousers and is also black which looks really good and keeps the design of the trousers very neat.  

PROS

  • Great looking, clean aesthetic  
  • Comfortable  
  • Warm 

CONS

  • None

Sizes: S-XL
Colour: Black/Midnight Navy
