Have you tried All-Weather and Weather-Proof gloves before? Are they effective? Which brand is the best? FJ?

Thanks for any advice you could provide ...

cheers

I've been using FJ Rain Grip almost exclusively since last year. Even though it's supposed to be a "rain glove", I use it here in all conditions.

No issues so far, in fact pretty happy with it. The palm are is made of some suede-like material while the back is quick-drying mesh. I played in a couple of wet conditions before and when it gets wetter, the better the grip becomes Very Happy

My only complaint - it doesn't come in white (only black). If you have no issues with colour coordination (i.e must have white hat / belt / shoe / glove), I'd highly recommend it.

FJ Rain Grip would be on top of the list from a few to consider I reckon...

I like the Fit39's. They are good under any types of weather conditions. And they last a looooong time! Smile

Footjoy "tropic cool" comes out tops to all other wet weather gloves hands down IMO... some new "nano lock fibre" they used.

Many places sell them. Most of the shops in FESC, as well as Golf House outlets. I know the one in Suntec definitely has them, but FESC might be cheaper

Pak Slicer,

golf house sells them. 1 piece for 200k. i'm using one now, have to say best glove i've used.

but the only thing that i dont like about this glove: when your friend with bigger hand borrows it, it will fit to his size and will be loose when you use it again. coz it is suppose to be tight fitting to your hand

Thanks for all the feedbacks, dudes! I have just invested in a S$19 FJ Rain Grip to try out over the weekend ... I'll try the Fit39 in the near future ...

I just got a Mizuno JPX All-Weather glove from Golf House @ Suntec. Quite a steal at $12.90 so bought to try... First thoughts, quite comfy, but yet to play with it yet.

Any bro here can recommend where to get Fit 39 gloves at good price currently? Golf Simply lady boss says stock coming in but she said the same thing like half a year back. 

I keep losing my gloves and seems like pricing ranges anywhere from $23 - $29 elsewhere.

Yeah but it's always no stock for me in M..
Rather pay $5 more and get to choose in whatever colours I want at Joe's.
But that's just me.

I'm with Andrew on this one. FJ's TropiCool grips wet or dry, and the fibre is so sheer, you can feel the breeze through the fabric. Great feel too because of how thin it is. Downside is that the light coloured fabric blackens quickly. I've been told it's washable though I've yet to try that.

Another good option is Adidas AdiZero gloves. Another all weather that's thin, light, and with great feel.

I like FJ 's twin pack gloves that are bang for the Buck.

I will actually rotate between three pairs of gloves and if I am playing in the rain, I will just bring all three  along and change to a drier one when the one I am wearing gets too slippery.  

As I usually clock at least 3 games a week, having 3 gloves works well for me and combined, they will last me about 6 to 7 months.  

Like shoes, leather gloves tend to last longer if they are given time to breathe and dry. If they are constantly used while still damp, they tend to tear quite fast.
