British golfer Aaron Rai, a two time European tour winner, loves MacWet gloves so much he wears a pair every time he plays, no matter what the weather. If you want proof of how good they are when it rains, just check out the footage of his victory at 2020’s Scottish Open where Storm Alex produced some of the worst conditions we’ve ever seen!

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.

The RainGrip can be brought individually or as a pair. We’d suggest that for a few extra quid it’s worth getting the pair for even more wet weather grip.

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.

Galvin Green are the kings when it comes to waterproof golf clothing and their Lewis gloves are an ideal adddition to your golf bag for the winter. Featuring Interface-1 technology they are water resistant and completely windproof to help keep your hands warm when the temperatures drop.

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.

A technical microfiber material means the Rain Control give up to 40% more grip than a traditional glove in wet conditions.

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 microfibre suede palm gives enhanced grip when the heavens open while the Opti Flex material provides a premium fit and feel along with increased flexibility.

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.

Shane Lowry won The Open at Royal Portrush in horrendous conditions in 2019 but the Srixon staffer had no problems with grip during that wet final round as he swapped his normal Srixon Cabretta Leather glove for one of the brand’s wet weather models.  

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.

A Japanese developed synthetic suede increases the RainFit’s grip in wet weather, while Mizuno’s FitBridge ensures a snug fit between the forefinger and palm. The microfibre suede palm performs impressively, no matter how wet it gets.

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.

StormGrip suede in the palm provides maximum grip in wet conditions, while the tailored lightweight mesh cuff provides an optimal fit and feel. We particularly like that Cobra has made the index finger touch screen compatible, making it an ideal choice for those of us who use apps, a GPS device or watch around the course.

The DWR coating, a special moisture membrane, helps keep hands dry.

Never heard of them? No, neither had we until recently. We spotted the Jeantet Sport on Amazon, where they have a 4.5/5 rating from 265 reviews, and ordered a pack to to find out if they can compete with the bigger brands. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and performance, especially when you consider that they’re less than £5.50 per glove.

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.
