So I got some of the Flat Back Rib vests and now have a question about the Half Zip Pullovers for the chillier conditions.
My question is similar to the one I asked about the vests.
What temperature do the pullovers still keep you warm (50F, 40F)? Is there a difference in the warmth of the Performance Half Zip Pullover and the Flat Back Rib Half Zip Pullover? How is their wind blocking capability? Do they wick away any sweat? Is the sizing the same as the vests?
How do these compare warmth-wise to the Lined Sweaters?
I really like the vests I got but now am looking for something for lower temperatures.
Thanks for everything guys, I do appreciate it.
Not everyone perceives colder temperatures the same. I often see golfers during the fall months in New England wearing shorts and others bundled up like it is about to snow. At the course I frequent, these players are often in the same group. It will be very difficult to quantify what you need based on temperature alone.
The flat back rib will have the same warmth characteristics as the Performance Half Zip. In my experience the Performance Half Zip will be ever so slightly better at blocking wind, and I mean ever so slightly, negligible difference. Both will also wick away sweat and the sizing is the same.
Now to the lined sweaters, these cannot be beat for cold weather play. I played a lot of freezing cold golf in college and would of done far better at dealing with the blustery Western Pa conditions if I had these in the closet. I go to these when it is anywhere between 50 and 38 (The Cali guys will cringe when they see 38*). The lined sweaters are superior to the other half zips at blocking wind. On those 40 degree days I will likely wear a baselayer, golf shirt, lined sweater and usually be fine.
Hope this helps!
