PING Typhoon Waterproof Trousers review

YOU might think it's a little strange to be leaving a review for a pair of golf trousers. Then again, not every pair of chinos are designed 100% waterproof.

Welcome to the new PING Typhoon waterproof trousers, which in my honest opinion are the most comfortable pair of slacks I've ever worn out on the course. I love them so much in fact, I wear them around the house and even take them out on the town. 

At the heart of the Typhoon chino is Sensor Dry technology and that provides guaranteed waterproof and wind resistant protection. This technology also makes them highly breathable, lightweight, and noise free when walking in between shots and also during the swing.

Guaranteed by PING to be waterproof for three years, the Typhoon encompasses a unique design. It has been engineered to look, feel and fit like a high-quality chino but offers the performance of a waterproof pant.

This ensures complete versatility for the golfer and provides an innovative alternative to carrying the traditional waterproof pant during the round, freeing up valuable space and weight in the golf bag.

PING has utilised a lightweight chino twill surface, laminated to a high performance film to guarantee waterproof protection, while a highly durable, water repellent finish has also been added to the surface of the fabric to bead water away from the garment and enable dirt to be easily wiped away.

Another aspect I like about these chinos is that there's a stretch fabric and straight leg fit that provides complete comfort. This also creates the silhouette of a classic chino.

Other features include a soft, stretchable lining, security side zip pockets and an internal self-sizer waistband, further increasing comfort during play. Most premium golf belts will also fit this waistband.

Not exactly cheap at £130 but I cannot speak highly enough of these chinos.

RRP £130 (available in Ash, pictured, or black; Waist UK 30"-44"; Leg 29", 31", 33", 35")
