Golf Pants for Men | Knickers, Plaid or Rain Pants Reviews

pants for men

At first glance, shopping for a new pair of golf pants seems like a pretty straightforward thing. But after a while, it can get overwhelming because of all of the options out there today. Knickers or shorts? Plain or patterned? Regular or waterproof pants?

Take a look through each of these options and see which of them best fit your needs:

Men’s Golf Pants

The basic, no-nonsense approach is to find a pair of classic pants that don’t have any loud prints or expensive waterproofing material. A great example is this pair of trousers by Snake Eyes. It comes with a light plaid pattern, not too flashy but stylish enough to make it aptly appropriate for the golf course. They are flat-front (an emerging style trend that’s giving pleated pants a run for their money) and are made with 5% Spandex, giving you plenty of room to follow through on that swing.

Cinch these up with a classic Nike belt a la Tiger Woods, and you’re good to go.

But classic, no-nonsense pants might not be your style. If you’d rather make a statement on the course, then take a look at these Loudmouth Shagadelic pants, just one of the many designs offered by this company. You’ll be able to channel your inner John Daly &mdash a Loudmouth-endorsee. They’re a cotton blend with stretchable Spandex to allow for natural movement throughout the game.

If you find yourself often playing golf during wet or stormy conditions, you’ll want to look into some waterproof pants instead.

Waterproof Golf Pants

Die-hard golfers play in any weather condition, just like the post office will work in any condition. Come rain, come snow, come hail or sleet, a true golfer will enjoy his game no matter what the weather forecaster says. But you also want to stay warm and keep your nice pants from getting ruined by the rain and mud. This is where a pair of waterproof pants comes in really handy. One of the best on the market right now is the ClimaProof pant by Adidas. These pants are fully sealed at the seams, built with 4-way stretch, and have an adjustable length.

Depending on how often you play in harsh weather conditions, you may want to consider a full rain suit complete with matching jacket and pants. Our favorite is the rain suit by Frogg Toggs — in fact, this outdoor sporting goods company says this rain suit is their claim to fame.

Men’s Golfing Shorts

In sunny conditions, wearing a pair of long pants is just too exhausting. Golf shorts are great for keeping you cool on a hot summer day. You’ll like the flat-front Men’s Tech shorts by Adidas. They fit many of the dress codes put in place by respected golf clubs. Lightweight and comfortable, they are also made with a quick-drying poly twill blend. You can find them in both khaki and black.

For those who think golf shouldn’t be taken so seriously, check out the several colors and patterns that Loudmouth offers in men’s shorts sizes.

Knickers For Golf

A cross between pants and shorts, knickers are also called crop pants depending on where you shop. This style is the best of both worlds. Knickers are just long enough to keep it classy, and just short enough to keep you cooled off. Take a look at the prAna Nemesis and the Ferrosi knickers. Both of these come in classy khaki colors, and they’re both made from weather-resistant material. They have just enough stretch to keep you comfortable while not hindering your golf performance.

For colder days, check out the Civia Wool knickers. These are long shorts for cyclists but work just as well in the golfing world. The wool blend is breathable and moves with you when you swing. It also sports side pockets for carrying cell phones and golf accessories.
