Peak Performance Golf Apparel – The “Dave” Shorts and Pants Review

After my first couple Peak Performance Apparel reviews, the Amuri Polo and Panmore Striped Polo, I quickly realized that the Peak Performance brand takes quality seriously, and is able to achieve it without sacrificing style. Their apparel for south of your equator is no exception — particularly the “Dave” collection of shorts and pants.

Peak Performance Dave Shorts PantsI am pretty picky when it comes to golf shorts and pants — I like a clean looking pant, that’s fitted but gives you enough room to be athletic and leaves enough to the imagination of your playing partners. They need to look sharp, classy, and sporty at the same time.

I’ve had the chance to wear the shorts quite a few times now. They’ve quickly become my favorite shorts in my rotation, which has me yearning to own more. They even throw in a little secret pocket within the right pocket, which is great for keeping your tees, divot tool, and ball marker separate from whatever else you might keep in your pocket.

The pants are more or less a longer version of the shorts, and fit identical in the waist and upper leg. I’m somewhat stubborn when it comes to wearing pants, so it has to be pretty cold out for me to stray from the shorts. As fall is starting to show up on the horizon, I’m pretty excited to have these pants locked and loaded for cooler weather.

Final Thoughts

Peak Performance Golf Apparel Dave ShortsThe Dave shorts and pants feel durable, lightweight and are water resistant while still being breathable, which is pretty cool. This is great for an unexpected summer drizzle that doesn’t justify putting the rain gear on. Or if you happen to dribble water on yourself, it won’t instantly look like you had an unfortunate accident. Don’t confuse water “resistant” with “waterproof”, they are not waterproof, but they do repel small amounts of water. I have been out in a drizzle with the shorts on, and much of the water beaded off. If you get poured on, they’ll eventually get wet, but it definitely buys you some time.

I’ve owned a lot of golf shorts and pants over the years and these have impressed me the most. My only grievance at this point is not owning a pair in every color.

Happy golfing!

  1. Aloha Josh,

    Looking good buddy and Peak Performance sounds good too. I get a lot of Logo Wear – and you know I put it on and go have fun. But much of it isn’t all that durable, I will have to look into Peak Performance.

    A Hui Hou,

    1. Aloha Wayne,

      Thanks! Time will tell how it holds up, but it sure seems like quality stuff. Like you, I just take the stuff my wife hands me and live a happy life.
