Bermuda Sands Review: Understated Style and Comfort Are a Winning Combo
The golf industry is largely dominated by big brands that pay to make sure they are always on your mind when you are ready to make a purchase. One of my goals is to make sure you are informed about independent brands that deserve your attention because they are making superior products. In this article, I want to introduce you to a great apparel company named Bermuda Sands.
They started in 2009, and are making comfortable clothes for golfers who are looking for a classic, understated look. I recently had a chance to wear one of their polos and outerwear offerings and was impressed with the quality, fit, and style.
The majority of golfers will judge a brand based on their polo-shirt offering. Over the past summer, I have been wearing the Elite Polo from Bermuda Sands. It’s a classic look with light thin stripes.
Overall, it’s a great shirt. It is priced reasonably at $60 – fits nicely, breathes well, and you can tell in person that it’s made from premium materials. I found myself gravitating towards it when choosing a shirt before my round, which means it passed the test. While it wouldn’t fit in with my “off course” style, I think many of you would feel comfortable wearing this shirt out to dinner or even to work.
They have a number of other styles in the polo department ranging from $55 – $77. They’ve done a great job at making a simple, but a quality line of shirts for golfers who want a few different looks.
The other offering from Bermuda Sands that I have been wearing is the Eclipse Quarter-Zip. It features their Storm-Dri technology and is made from a polyester/cotton blend.
This was a nice surprise mainly because it is a versatile piece. It keeps you warm, allows you to swing freely, and does a pretty solid job of protecting you from the elements. It’s casual design also fits a few different situations off the course. I found myself wearing it on early-morning walks with my kids, and out and about as an extra layer.
I gave it a test against water and the material held up nicely. This picture was taken about 15 minutes after initial contact, and you can see that the moisture beads off the surface. The inside of the shirt remained completely dry.
While I wouldn’t say this is storm-proof material, it will protect you from a light to medium rain for quite a while.
At $67 this is a great bargain in my opinion for the quality and versatility on and off the golf course.
Overall, I really liked what I saw from Bermuda Sands. If you are in the market for some new golf apparel that you can wear on and off the course, I would give them some consideration. You can find out more at their website here.
