One of the biggest gripes for those who have to deal with frigid temperatures on the golf course this time of year -- aside from the freezing or near-freezing conditions -- is the layering of clothes required to stay warm.
Sure, it comes with the territory, but let's be honest -- golf just isn't all that much fun when you're dressed up like Ralphie's little brother in "A Christmas Story" and you can't even put your arms to your sides.
Cross Golf Apparel for men and women, may have the solution thanks to its new Pro Loft Jacket.

Swedish-inspired Cross draws upon its heritage in the ski industry with this lightweight yet heavy-duty jacket that's perfect for a cool day on the links or other chilly outdoor activities.
The Pro Loft jacket has a water-and wind-repelling shell that keeps you dry while a PrimaLoft synthetic microfiber insulation lets perspiration release for a constant, comfortable inner climate.
The featherweight polyester ripstop stretch panels offer superb durability while increasing range of motion -- perfect for the golf swing -- while the drawstring hem adds customizable comfort.

Best of all, it's not bulky. The Pro Loft folds into its own back pocket for added packability making it ideal for travel.
The Pro Loft men's jacket comes in black and retails for $239. For women, the Pro Loft is available in Carmine (a pink color) and also retails for $239.
