Gary, Pennsylvania 

Footjoy rain gear head to toe

The worst I ever played in...the sideways kind that you’d wish would just turn to snow already so you’d stop getting pelted by the rain...

Current rain gear Sun Mountain Elite jacket and Zero Restriction pants

All of last year 180 days of rain in NJ, seemed like every event charity or otherwise we played last year we got wet.

I would love to give these a try, was very interested when I read your reviews.

ProQuip PX-6

Mizuno Rain Pants

Downpour in Sandestin about 10 years ago.  So much so, that new lakes were forming on the fairways.  Had to stop and drove up toward Nashville and played at one of the RTJ courses with no rain.

Jose from GA

I recently purchased a FootJoy but not entirely happy with it.

We had a golf outing in Orlando wind blowing at 50 mph and rain coming sideways. But you know, GA summer rainstorms are just around the corner.

Nike Storm Fit
We were on vacation in FL and a heavy storm blew in with heavy wind and rain. Needless to say we did get our rain gear on in time and attempted to finish the hole but the rain was just pouring!

played a muni in maine one time and all of a sudden the sky opened up and downpoured, plus 30-40 mph winds. after 30 min. of not showing any signs up letting up we just continued to play in our already soaked through clothes.

Derek Riley/Calvert City, KY.
My current rain gear is Galway Bay. I have been using their rain gear for 6-7 yrs now since the inception of the company. I have some from every design they have and improved on. However, I do not have the newest version of their product so it would be nice to compare to the older models. Either way, It's by far the best rain gear I have used in for the past 40 yrs.
Worst rain I ever played in was the Ky mid-Am State Championship 8 yrs ago. Unfortunately I was using FJ rain gear at the time and it did not do the job. Soaked to the bone and cold I decided after that event that I had to find something that would keep me dry and warm. I found Galway bay, the best decision i ever made.

Barret from Michigan

I have a FJ jacket and UA Pants. Neither of which are super waterproof.

I play in all weather conditions. The worst would have been sideways rain/sleet/hail last October.

Thanks, I am very excited for a chance to try!

Thanks for the opportunity

Dan from Massachusetts

Nike Shield Jacket and Nike Rain Pants

Worst rain I played in was so bad that our foursome was the only group on the course. Rained all day with downpours every once in awhile. Gusts were so strong that we could not use umbrellas. I try to play year round in New England so we run into alot of bad weather.
