Everyone loves a gilet, so Hannah Holden has picked out her favourites

When it comes to winter apparel if there is one thing I can’t resist it is a new gilet. They’re perfect for keeping you warm without feeling your swing is restrained by lots of layers. I’ve dug out the best golf gilets on the market so you can have your pick.

Best golf gilets: FootJoy

I love the simplicity of a black gilet meaning you can match it with nearly anything. The different textures of the Hybrid Vest work really well on this and the high neck style adds extra warmth.

In the women’s range I’m a huge fan of the overall shaping of this gilet and the simple padded design. It comes in navy and grey and ties in perfectly with the colours of the rest of the FootJoy range.

RRP: From £110

The highlight of the Norse S2 Reversible is, well, its reversibility. It means you to get two styles out of one jacket. The black is nice and simple compared to the satin blue which really stands out.

As for the women’s range, I have been testing the Glow Hybrid Vest for a few weeks now and it has become one of my go-to jackets. I love the patterned detailing which adds a pop to a plain outfit.

RRP: From £75

Best golf gilets: Adidas

The materials and textures of the Cold.Rdy jacket make it stand out while also keeping you nice and cosy out on the course. If you’re not part of the golf fashion police this would pair really well with the Adidas Cold.Rdy hoodie that’s created so much debate in 2020.

Meanwhile the Frostguard is aesthetically one of my favourite jackets. I like the fact it is slightly thicker than some other offerings and really like the variety of textures and stripes.

RRP: £54.95

Best golf gilets: Glenmuir

One of the nicest gilets I have seen out on the course recently. I really like the bright blue accents and the overall shape and styling of the Thurso Gilet from Glenmuir.
