A Taste of the Sunice Men’s Golf Jacket Collection

When a brand has been around as long as Sunice has, it likely carries with it some sort of association for people. For me, that started when I was a kid, and my Dad had a one-piece Sunice ski suit. It was blue with flashes of hot pink. At the time, it was the bees knees, and turned heads on the slopes. Flashy ski suits were in, and Sunice wasn’t afraid to stay ahead of the curve and be bold with their style choices.

Luckily, styles have evolved since flashy one-piece ski suits, and Sunice has managed to keep up. I recently had the opportunity to test out a couple jackets from their golf collection, and to no surprise, I was pleased with the results.

The Sport Collection – Full Zip Rockford Jacket

  • Model size (me): 5’11” 190 lbs
  • Size worn: Medium

Men's Sunice Sport Golf Jacket

The Rockford Jacket is a lightweight, water/wind resistant jacket that is great for days you need protection from a cool breeze or brief periods of light precipitation. It packs up small and has come in handy for cool fall evenings, particularly when the breeze picked up.

I like the simple and classic styling of the jacket, which makes it easy to jive with the rest of your apparel. As expected from Sunice, it comes in a variety of color combinations to suit different tastes. The jacket is an ideal fit for me — I like that it isn’t too long, giving it a clean, fitted look.

I’ve even found myself reaching for it on evening strolls with my wife through the park, or when we’re walking to the pub for a relaxed evening out. I appreciate that it looks and feels great on the golf course, but isn’t limited to that purpose.

The Typhoon Collection – Carleton Waterproof Jacket

  • Model size (me): 5’11” 190 lbs
  • Size worn: Medium

When the weather gets ugly and the Rockford jacket isn’t quite cutting it, Sunice still has your back with their Typhoon Collection. I’ve had the chance to take the Carleton jacket for several test drives and it has proven useful in many circumstances. Although the photos were taken under sunny skies, I’ve been “fortunate” enough to test it in some ugly weather as well.

Sunice Mens Typhoon Zephal Golf Jacket

The Carleton is a waterproof jacket made from their patented Zephal material, which provides a soft, breathable and stretchy feel. Although it may not be quite as watertight as Gore-Tex, the soft and stretchy feel of the jacket is a good trade-off, particularly if you are more likely to use an umbrella or take shelter during sustained rainfall.

The jacket worked best for me as a stand-alone jacket over a golf shirt. For my body type, it felt a bit tight in the armpits when I layered it with a lighter jacket or sweater, but that may not be the case for everyone. It is designed to be warmer than the Rockford, so it can stand up to pretty cold temperatures on its own. Having a waterproof jacket that feels and performs well when swinging a club is crucial for any golfer to deal with the elements, and the Carleton jacket definitely meets the criteria.

Final thought 

Testing some of the latest golf jackets from Sunice reaffirmed what I already thought — that Sunice is here to stay, and always manages to keep up with the performance curve. The sporty styling, quality, and different colour options to suit both conservative and bold tastes comes as no surprise. In a world full of uncertainty, one thing is for sure — Sunice will keep cranking out quality golf apparel to prepare you for anything on the golf course.
