We’re knee-deep into May, and while we have lost track of how long stay at home orders have been going on for, there is light at the end of the tunnel. States are starting to slowly open back up and those previously deprived of the greatest game on planet earth are being let loose on the links. Days are getting longer, temperatures are getting warmer and the double loop is becoming more common. In this month’s installment of Under the Bib, I’ll highlight a few pieces that you’ll want to add to the bag for those 36 hole days.
SOLO Golf Co., Vest, Price TBD
The mornings are still cool and I may have found the perfect layer for early morning dew sweeping or evening sunset chasing. This vest from SOLO Golf Co. offers warmth but, unlike a lot of outer layers, will not impact your swing in the slightest. SOLO Golf Co is a husband-wife duo based in New England, three years in the making. Producing unique, functional, high quality garments, I think SOLO can make a splash on the new golfware scene.
The vest is made of water-repellent material and has a fleece lining. The sleeveless cut results in very little restriction in the golf swing, and the way they built the hood into the vest helps keep it in place while slinging the ball around. SOLO is all about finding your own style and embracing it on and off the golf course—they handpick materials and everything is made in the US. Be on the lookout for this vest to drop late May or early June and will be released in three different colorways.
