We have looked at a number of golf specific jackets in the past, and always have liked the products we have seen from Sunice. Our most recent Sunice review was of the Hurricane Byron jacket. Today we are going to take a look at an update of the Sunice Ultimate Jacket (dubbed the Ultimate Jacket V2) as well as a women’s jacket, the Sophia.

Our Thoughts

I was so excited when I received my new Sunice jacket, the black Sophia from the Hurricane collection. I tried it on as soon as I got home and was immediately impressed with the perfect fit and style. I wore it that night as it was pouring rain and I needed rain gear. I was pleased that at how effectively it kept me warm and dry. I received several compliments from co-workers on how sharp the jacket looked.

We had a golf outing at the school that I work at and it was a blustery day with a slight rain persistent through the first five holes. I wore multiple layers with the top layer being my new jacket. I could move easily in the jacket and it posed no hindrance to my golf swing. Once again it kept me dry and warm as well. Although initially I had difficulty finding the pockets, once I found them I was excited by all that I could put in my pockets. Wearing the Sunice contributed to fun day on the links when I could have been frozen and wet!

I recently wore my new jacket while participating in the Philadelphia Half Marathon. When I left the hotel at 6am for a 7am start, it was quite cold. I was very glad that I had thrown on my Sunice Sophia jacket even though I had not worn it for any of my training runs. I knew that it was incredibly comfortable and provided great flexibility while playing golf, so I knew I would be able to move well in it while running 13.1 miles. I also loved the pocket space as I wanted to carry a Clif bar, my cell phone to meet up with my husband after the race and my hotel key. I was not disappointed. I was incredibly comfortable running in the jacket and it kept me very warm. Actually I was so warm that I had to take the jacket off way through the race and tie it around my waist. Fortunately it is incredibly lightweight and did not affect my run at all.

I have been thoroughly impressed with the new Sunice Sophia coat while going to work in a rain storm, golfing on a cold and rainy day and running a marathon. I would highly recommend this jacket for any woman who is looking for a stylish rain/wind jacket that is incredibly comfortable, has lots of pocket space and allows for much flexibility.
