PROS

The glove's Cabretta leather works wonders increasing the feel and grip performance in key stress areas. The FiberSof material adds to the leather, making the glove's fit and grip consistent and secure. The PowerNet mesh inserts across the knuckles improve the model's breathability, comfort, and overall flexibility.

CONS

There's a chemical smell to the gloves at first. 

OUR VERDICT

FootJoy 66153E-401 offers consistent, soft feel and excellent performance and durability. The glove will let you play your game under any conditions. The 3-directional ComforTab closure and the gloves' comfortable elastic wrist make sure the glove hugs the hand without squeezing the wrist.

PROS

The anatomical relief pad system evens out your hand's surface, increasing control and making sure that the grip stays consistent. The lycra gussets, as well as these web and motion zones, minimizes that material bunching that usually plagues subpar golf gloves to ensure an increased range of motion, fit, and feel.

CONS

The adjustable closure is not that versatile. 

OUR VERDICT

Bionic RelaxGrip is pretty expensive but the price makes sense considering how high-tech the product is compared to traditional golf gloves. Among other details, the glove's double-row finger grip system promotes a lighter but, at the same time, more stable grip.

Nike GG0481

Hugging the Hand

The only issue with the Nike GG0481 model is that this glove is only available in the ML size, so, as much as we want to, we cannot recommend them to every golf enthusiast out there.

That being said, the glove isn't necessarily as limited in that regard as you'd think. The company's customized fitting system makes the model pretty suitable for various hands' shapes and sizes. At the same time, the angled tab design provides excellent ergonomic fit, letting the glove hug the hand without squeezing it.

The strategically placed stretch fabric in fingers and at the back of the hand is another reason why this glove will fit more hands than you would think.

On the other proverbial hand, the perforated synthetic leather panel on the back of the hand makes sure your hand stays nice and dry, letting them breathe throughout the entire duration of the game.

Last but not least, genuine leather on the palm and thumb makes these gloves ridiculously durable and the hook-and-loop closure ensures that the glove doesn't ever slide down.

In other words, Nike GG0481 is the best golf glove on within this lineup for people who are somewhere around the glove's limited size range. The 100% goatskin leather palm makes sure your hand will never slip. The glove's as durable as they come.

Callaway 5316147

Performance and Fashion

Callaway 5316147 is the glove we can recommend to pretty much anyone. The model is available in all sizes, ranging from Cadet S to XXL. Plus, the stretch lycra panels allow for an optimized fit, making sure that the glove contours the hand's shape. The only problem here is that the actual sizes differ from advertised.

There are these precision-engineered perforations on the palm and fingers that allow for excellent breathability, keeping your hand dry and comfortable throughout the game.

The company's Opti Feel+™ leather makes the glove comfortable and stylish at the same time.

Other than that, it is the little details that separate the product from its direct competition. The Opti Fit™ adjustable closure is among these details, making sure that the glove stays in place.

At the same time, the moisture-wicking wrist cuff makes the glove especially practical, keeping your hand comfortable and working with the closure to make sure the glove never glides down.

Finally, the glove is available in eight different colors, so you'll be able to match your style.

In conclusion, again, we can recommend the Callaway 5316147 golf glove to just about any golf enthusiast. The model balances performance and fashion better than any glove we've looked at.

MG Golf DynaGrip

Hand-Hugging Fit

MG Golf DynaGrip delivers hand-hugging fit, solid looks, and that buttery-soft feel that made the glove's line so popular in the first place. First and foremost, the model's detailed stitching, tailored edge trim, and high-quality Cabretta leather bring that outstanding appearance and performance that the DynaGrip line is known for.

On the other hand, the company's trademark tanning approach ensures that soft but, at the same time, tacky finish with additional moisture resistance that keeps the grip equally solid during hot and humid days.

Other than that, there's not much to cover here. The glove is available in every size between Cadet S and Cadet XL (including these sizes). Just keep in mind that the fingers' length is slightly different (longer) compared to standard Cadet sizes.

You have these standard perforations on the fingers that make sure the hand is able to breathe, while the adjustable closure makes the glove equally suitable for different wrist sizes.

All things considered, MG Golf DynaGrip leaves pretty much nothing to be desired. Considering the affordable price tag, the glove is about as good as they come. It is only available in white though but that's pretty standard too.

FootJoy 66153E-401

Feel and Grip Performance

FootJoy 66153E-401 will improve your game as much as the next high-quality golf glove. The model's consistent, soft feel is matched by its performance and durability. You'll be able to do your best in any and all weather conditions.

The glove's Cabretta leather works wonders increasing the feel and grip performance (as well as the product's overall durability) in key stress areas. The FiberSof material adds to the aforementioned leather, making the glove's fit and grip consistent and secure.

At the same time, these PowerNet mesh inserts across the knuckles improve the model's breathability, comfort, and overall flexibility.

The biggest problem most customers have with the glove doesn't have anything to do with its performance and/or comfort levels. It is a very slight but noticeable chemical smell that follows the product at first. Having said that, the smell goes away relatively quickly.

Lastly, the 3-directional ComforTab closure and the gloves' comfortable elastic wrist make sure the glove hugs the hand without squeezing the wrist.

In short, FootJoy 66153E-401 will let you play your game under any conditions. The glove doesn't have any major flaws and the price is more than fair.

Bionic RelaxGrip

Improved Control

Bionic RelaxGrip is pretty expensive but the price makes sense considering how high-tech the product is compared to traditional golf gloves.

The company's patented anatomical relief pad system evens out your hand's surface, increasing your control over shots and making sure that the grip stays consistent.

At the same time, the gloves' lycra gussets, as well as its web and motion zones, minimizes that material bunching that usually plagues subpar golf gloves to ensure an increased range of motion, fit, and feel.

Other than that, there's the double-row finger grip, the company's other trademark system that promotes a lighter but, at the same time, more stable grip.

The Japanese synthetic honeycomb leather base makes the glove especially durable and resistant to different elements/weather conditions.

On one hand, the adjustable closure makes the glove pretty easy to put on as well as remove. On the other hand, its short zipper means that the closure discriminates against smaller/larger wrists.

Bottom line, Bionic RelaxGrip is the only golf glove on this list that might truly be able to massively improve your performance. Plus, it is available in every size ranging from Cadet M to XXL, so we can recommend this glove to pretty much all golf enthusiasts.

What is a Golf Glove?

There are too many people that look down on golf. As far as we're concerned, these people are wrong to do so. The game has the best views. You can play alone, so you don't have to organize and/or gather other people and can play anytime you want. Anyone can play the game, the entry threshold is about as low as it gets. It is an inclusive sport that men, women, children, the elderly, and even most disabled people can equally enjoy. Plus, the gear is really cool.

It matters more than you'd think though. There are many reasons people wear these gloves. First and foremost, golfers usually wear the glove on the non-dominant hand, so make sure to purchase the right glove (the right glove being the left-handed glove for right-handed people and the right-handed glove for lefties).

Other than that, it is all about the materials and the model's construction. There has to be some moisture-wicking tech there, otherwise your hand will get sweaty and start affecting your performance. The materials also determine how reliable and secure the grip will be, so try to keep all these things in mind too.

Again, gear matters, so make sure to read our golf shoes and golf putters reviews too.
