KINONA Women’s Golf Apparel Review

50 Words or Less

KINONA women’s golf apparel incorporates performance fabric with the cut and look of knits.  It’s a bold combination.

Introduction

The golf course is a place where unusual style combinations abound.  We have pants whose silhouettes are unassuming, but in the light, there are blinding colors!  Dogs!  Fruit!  Whatever I last ate!

In their latest line for women, Kinona takes casual looks that you might expect to see off the course and infuses them with performance.  This is a combination that sets the showboating aside and focuses on good cuts and good fabric.

Style

Kinona has achieved a look that combines classic lines with subtle interest.  There is something reminiscent of a thicker fabric in the construction of the collared pieces, and yet they’re cool, stretchy, and athletic.  I especially love dress pockets, and these add a flattering pop of color.

In an age of overly complicated tank tops, Kinona strikes a nice balance of simplicity and style.  Mesh layers add contrast between the top and bottom, so it goes with all your overly complicated legging prints without being boring.

Fit

These pieces fit true to size, though I always recommend taking your actual measurements before consulting a sizing chart.  The challenge of performance fabric is that it looks best when fitted.  You give structure to the clothes, not the other way around.  Thus, the tank top looks great, while the polo and dress don’t hang or move in the way you might expect.  You can see from the pictures that a smooth, draped look is difficult to achieve from this fabric/cut combination.

Performance

The main benefit is the smooth feel of athletic fabric.  Everything moves with you and is cool and comfortable.  The dress comes with a set of mesh shorts, which I imagine would be quite helpful at Bandon Dunes.  However, I found that the dress looked better without the shorts.  It comes down to personal preference, though I’d try to avoid a preference that’s too personal in this case.

Conclusion

While the fabric may limit Kinona to on-course wear, it does not limit your motion.  This line from Kinona makes a unique addition to your golf and workout wardrobe.
