They’re our waterproof golf glove of choice with a pair living in the bag all year and worn for every round throughout the winter months. Not only are they fully waterproof and breathable, they give you unrivalled grip when it rains, gripping more the wetter they get.
They’re also incredibly durable. We’ve used ours across two seasons and, because they’re machine washable, they still look fantastic.
The MacWet Aquatec can be worn all year-round – just wear one glove in normal to dry and humid conditions and wear the pair when it’s wet or damp.
In use, MacWet gloves dry naturally within five-10 minutes, keeping performance consistent without the need to change gloves. There’s also an impressive choice of sizes, from XS (6.5cm acrossthe four finger knuckles of your hand) to XXL (10.5cm). For us, this is the ultimate wet weather golf glove.
FootJoy’s autosuede knitted palm and index finger gives excellent wet or humid weather grip. The QuikDry material is also breathable and very durable, plus it won’t hold moisture for long to ensure you remain comfortable.
Includes a tee holder and removable ball marker on the back of the glove. We’ve tried plenty of rain and winter golf gloves over the years and the FootJoy RainGrip are among the very best.
Cabretta leather palms and super tacky finger tips provide excellent grip during colder months, while excellent breathability ensures the hands remain warm without getting damp or sweaty.
Very durable, easy to wash and maintain and, as you’d expect, a high-quality finish, the Lewis is a wet weather golf glove that justifies the price. Available in men’s and women’s models.

Numbers like that make us think it’s always worth having a pair tucked in your bag for whenever the heavens open. They dry impressively quickly and, from our experience, the nylon fabric is extremely durable.
They’re also one of the best fitting and feeling gloves that we’ve tried thanks to the ultra-thin microfibre suede. Assuming you look after them then it’ll be £26.99 well spent on one of the best golf rain gloves out there.

The textured palm is very comfortable and provides impressive grip when it’s wet while the seam taping creates a smooth finish.
Made from nylon, polyurethane and elastane, the UA Storm is durable and flexible.
Callaway have used X-Spann material between the fingers which has improved moisture wicking, breathability and flexibility, while the stretch binding cuff makes the glove more secure and helps absorb moisture to help keep the palms dry.
The Opti Fit adjustable closure is thin and light and ensures a secure fit.

The quick-dry knit material guarantees optimum breathability, and microfibre suede palms ensure you won’t lose grip in wet weather.
Flexible and comfortable, these high-quality rain gloves mean you can stay on your game, no matter how bad the weather.
A great wet weather glove should dry quickly and the Srixon certainly does thanks to the knit material. A great pair of gloves at a very good great price.
Flexible mesh inserts provide comfort and breathability while a wider, moisture absorbing wristband provides a more comfortable fit and the velcro pull tab to ensure a secure, firm and tight fit.

The DWR coating, a special moisture membrane, helps keep hands dry.
They fit very well and the moisture wicking material is breathable, flexible and lightweight. We first wore ours on a warm but rainy summer’s day where they provided excellent grip, even when our hand was hot and the rain was falling pretty heavily. Based on the few rounds we used ours for we wouldn’t expect each glove to last as long as a more premium model, but with three gloves for £15.99 that isn’t really a major problem.
They’re also available in pairs (black, white, grey, green, blue) for £11.99.
