Dot is quite an ironic name for this gilet as the only pattern on it is actually strips. 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.
To the touch, the outer of the Dot gilet has a soft shell feel. The inside is fleece lined for added comfort and warmth. This is the same in the pockets, which also feature zips to keep belongings safe when playing. Ping has also added a small loop on the inner neckline which is great for quickly hanging up the gilet.
On course testing
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.
Out on the course, I had the Dot gilet stored in my bag on the back nine after the weather picked up. The gilet remained almost crease free, having taken it out at the end of the round. Ping has also labelled this gilet as being water resistant. Having been caught in a light bit of rain, the first few drops just ran off, and after that, I needed to change into a waterproof jacket.
The 19th hole
The design and colour scheme of this gilet means that it doesn’t scream ‘golf’. I think this is great and means that it could easily be worn off of the course. This vest is a little on the pricey side, but regardless this will be getting plenty of wear out on the course this season.
