Adidas Frostguard Full-zip Padded Vest review: First Impressions
A gilet, or Padded Vest, in this case, isn’t something that is high up in priority for me when picking out winter clothing for the colder months. However, the Adidas Frostguard Full-zip Padded Vest, which can be worn both on and off the course can easily sway my mind.
The padded pattern might not be for everyone but I think it adds something a little different and offers a unique look and helps transition easily to post-round activities.
Adidas Frostguard Full-zip Padded Vest review: On The Course
In terms of golf performance, the Padded Vest is great and maintains a range of motion even when layering up on a cold day. This is ensured by the down insulation, which keeps your core warm to help free up your arms and stop your swing from being restricted.
The Padded Vest is finished with a durable water-repellent finish which helps stay dry in light rain and even snow if you encounter any while out on the course during the winter months.
I have the Frostguard full-zip padded vest in large, which is my usual sizing, and I felt like it was just slightly too big as it was a little baggy. I much prefer a gilet being a bit snugger and don’t mind them being slightly short. If you are between sizes, I would definitely recommend sizing down.
