Testing out some of Sunice's Apparel from their Spring/Summer 2015 Pro Sport and Sport Layers collections has been a blast. The beauty of Sunice's apparel is that it they can not only be worn on the golf course but off as well. I got to test out was the Burbank Sweater from the Pro Sport Collection and the the Allendale Pullover from the Sport Layers Collection. The Allendale pullover was very much like the pullover I reviewed back in 2010, the Olie Superlite Pullover which I pretty much wore out because of how much I wore it. Here's the scoop on the Burbank Sweater
Sunice Burbank Lined Sweater. TEC Wool Blend Full Zip Windstopper Lined Sweater
- Windstopper membrane gives 100 percent wind protection and breath-ability
- Shell: 50% wool, 50% acrylic, Lining: 100% Polyester
- Extremely Durable, Lightweight + Soft
- Extreme Water Repellency
- Sewfree Silicone chest pocket patch
- Contrast colored knit elbow patch inserts
- Rib knit color, cuffs and hem
- Durable Twill Fabric on shoulder panel
The Burbank is a great sweater to wear when the it's a bit cool out or windy. The Windstopper liner keeps you completely protected from the wind but still breathes so you won't overheat. I found it great for those cool summer evenings when you're just trying to get a quick 9 in before the sun goes down. The Burbank Sweater never impeded my golf swing during rounds a perfect addition to my golf apparel layers.
I also remember a round it came in handy when there was a quick rain shower (good thing I had it in my bag). The Burbank was also great under my Sunice Bollon Flexvent Jacket when it did happen to rain a little harder out during a round.
The Burbank's charcoal colored fabric is very soft and lightweight and the style is perfect on or off the golf course. I loved the added touches of the knit elbow patch inserts as well as the chest pocket patch. Little added touches that go along way for a great stylish sweater to wear on the links.
The Burbank is part of the Pro Sport Collection by Sunice and comes in sizes S to XXL and comes in two colors, black and charcoal. The XL was a perfect fit for my 6'4" 205lbs frame. Retails for about $190.
Taking what we do best and applying it outside of the raingear spectrum has resulted in the Sunice Pro Sport Collection. This category features WINDSTOPPER® by Gore as its high-end performance gear, resulting in lightweight and fashion driven layering pieces.
For those weather conditions that are a little more demanding, your ultimate choice should be a WINDSTOPPER® garment. Combining the most breathable, 100% windproof liner with lightweight wool blends, offer a cross sport jacket with ultimate performance. The standout piece for the season is our ladies Harper hooded quilted hybrid jacket.
The Sunice wind gear collection fulfils our commitment to adding comfort to fashion by providing the ultimate second lightweight layer to our layering system. Laser cut welding details, rusching, bolder print space dyes, bright colour combos, new trims are just some of the new teasers to look for when trying on our new Sunice wind gear.
“The Sunice Pro Sport Collection is a great example of how we at Sunice are providing performance with Fashion – windstopper lined wool sweaters that not only block the wind but also allow the golfer to wear less layers to protect them from the elements thereby having greater freedom of movement,” said Micheline Gallant, Sunice Golf Designer.

Sunice's Allendale is the ideal lightweight thermal pullover for the avid golfer. The fabric stretches perfectly whether you're wearing it as a base or mid-layering. I found it perfect to wear during a round or if I was working at the golf course or meeting my wife after my round. Very versatile piece of layering again from Sunice.
Sunice has produced a very stylish pullover with the right amount of accents including the laser-cut right chest pocket which I mainly used for my reading glasses but can be used for tees or even your iPod.
The contrasting flatlock top stitching looks great pplus it adds to the comfort of the Allendale.

Sport Layers Collection
Adding properly designed layers into a golf wardrobe can enhance a golfer's overall physical performance and ultimately improve their golf game. Sunice Performance Layers are designed to create an apparel layering system that allows golfers to play at their very best in all weather conditions. For cool mornings or damp dawns early in the season, when an extra layer is needed without the extra bulk or weight, the Sutter has been added to this category which features our ever popular Allendale Superlight FX™ Pullover to complete this offering. Thermal properties combined with moisture wicking attributes, and bright color combinations are just a few of the details that make these layering pieces stand out from the rest.
“Our layers collection continues to evolve and has become a staple for us in pursuing the ultimate layering performance system to enable the golfer to maintain his inner microclimate so he can player longer and drive the ball father as a result,” said Gallant. “Our Allendale thermal pullover is one of our most popular pieces as it not only embraces the DNA of the brand through its design but also its performance, fit and functionality which all address the key benefits for the player. Layering our Allendale underneath the Berlin waterproof short sleeved pullover is the perfect pairing for any golfer to play in any weather condition. All our layers are designed and developed with the mindset of making fashion comfortable and allowing the golfer to go from sport to life and life to sport.”
