A few weeks ago I received some apparel samples from Carnoustie Sportswear to try out. The 1/4 zip Mackenzie Pullover and the Multi-Stripe Performance Polo were the two products they sent me. Carnoustie apparel is known for it’s stylish features both on and off the course and I was eager to put these pieces to the test.
Carnoustie prides itself on the fact that it has created a collection of outerwear that can be worn all year long. The Mackenzie Collection offers 3 different styles: a 1/4 zip long sleeve pullover, a 1/4 zip vest and a full zip vest. The 1/4 zip long sleeve pullover is extremely lightweight and comfortable. I normally don’t like to wear long sleeves when I’m practicing or out on the golf course, but I was very impressed with the breathability of the unbrushed cotton material used in this piece. I was able to stay cool and comfortable throughout my entire practice session. Another great feature about this pullover is that I can wear it off the course and not feel like I’m going to stick out like a sore thumb. It comes in a variety of colours to suit every taste. For me, comfort and playability are two features I look for when choosing my golf apparel. The Mackenzie Pullover fits both requirements and doesn’t break the bank. The 1/4 zip long sleeve pullover retails for around $80 and is well worth it!
Multi-Stripe Performance Polo
Carnoustie has taken a firm stance in admitting that not all performance fabric is created equally. Their aim is to differentiate themselves from the competition with their polyester/lycra blended performance knit polo. I must say that I was very impressed with how comfortable this polo is and it has a more traditional look to it. Again, Carnoustie has done very well in terms of breathability. Not once did I feel too warm or sweaty during my practice session while wearing this polo. In addition, I never had to worry about the sleeve getting snagged or stuck while making a swing. The less I have to worry about in terms of my apparel, the more I can focus on the task at hand and making a good swing. With a wide variety of colour combinations to choose from, you’re sure to find one that’s right for you. The multi-stripe performance polo retails for around $88 which puts it in the higher end of the spectrum.
If you’re looking for a company that provides you with high-quality apparel with the comfort and playability to look your best both on and off the golf course, look no further than Carnoustie Sportswear.
