***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Mizuno Windlite sweater replacement options?

I've had a Mizuno Windlite sweater for several years and it is the best top layer for cold weather golf. But it's getting old and I'm looking for a possible replacement and as the technology has changed I'm not sure what options there are. Need something that is warm and blocks the wind too just like the sweater and can be worn over UA style base layers. Any thoughts?

    I really like the Dunning Natural Hand 1/4 zip. It is a cotton/poly/bamboo charcoal blend fabric. The bamboo charcoal makes this very unique because it is naturally antimicrobial, breathable and thermo-regulating, which means no chemicals are added for performance benefits. Better for the environment and better for your skin.<br />

    I have used the FJ wind lined sweater that is similar to the Mizuno and it is great. Much pricier though...<br />

    Check Ebay and Amazon. I'm still wearing the two Mizuno sweaters I bought about 5 years ago, but that's where I would start.

    Greg Norman Performance blend lined wind sweater. A guy at the course I play swears by the Mizuno Windlites but he has one of the Greg Norman's and says its good. <br />

    I jumped all over the Mizuno Hayates when they went on sale, but reason #2 that I like lined sweaters is that they pull on and off easily and I found it was very difficult to slip in and out of these as the temperature rose and fell. In particular the cuffs and sleeves were very tight and twisted badly for me. My favorite wind sweaters were the Ashworths https://www.hurricanegolf.com/ashworth-performance-pima-half-zip-wind-sweater.html, which are now out of stock. The Greg Norman's are okay, but a bit loose.

    Found one of these brand new on Ebay and it is pretty similar to the Windlite sweater. Wore the GN sweater last weekend in about 30 degree weather and was very comfortable. Great compliment to my old Windlite sweater and works great with layers too.

    I've had a Rainswetter for about 5 years that is great to block out the wind, and is waterproof, too. I don't see these being sold very often, but you can get them direct::<br />

    I have the quarter zip model. It's quite warm, so you don't need to layer up excessively underneath.

    I think the Mizuno Hayate replaced the Windlite. I picked up two Hayate Quarter-Zips last holiday for $45 each on BudgetGolf and/or eBay.

    The FJ Performance sweater is really good. Spendier than the windlite but worth it if you need something.

    As stated earlier check Amazon and Ebay. They are still available there (though getting scarcer).

    Thanks for the link! I love my Mizuno Hayate 1/4 Zip, but the deals are getting tougher to find. I happen to have a little affinity for Callaway now too.

    The last two Hayates I bought through Amazon were very pure quality. The sweaters were pilling all over by the 2nd wearings. They were embarassing to wear by the 5th time. The quality was highly inferior to the original Windlites. The FJ’s feel like they weigh a ton in the arms, which I don’t like. The ProQuip & F&G wind sweaters are by far superior to the ones mentioned above, but they will definitely cost you.

    No new windlites. Just buy used on eBay. <br />
    <br />
    I’ve got 7 of them and look every day on eBay for them with my saved search.

    I googled looking for the same thing and here I am thinking I would find answers. Disappointed. I'm ready to retire my 7-year-old windlite sweater.
