Earlier this summer I published an article with notes from a guy’s perspective on 3 golf polos you won’t find on the shelves at a local sporting goods store- click here to read it! Well, Phil is back and sharing his notes on the Rhoback Quarter Zip. The past three months were spent testing, analyzing, and compiling notes on the Rhoback Q-Zips performance and manufacturing. Keep reading for a recap of the pros, cons, and other mentions. Rhoback describes these pieces as “moisture wicking and comfortable. With a four-way stretch and premier sport fit, don’t expect this q-zip to constrict any type of swing, throw, or handshake… designed to transition seamlessly from one activity to the next, whether it be golf, tennis, traveling, or just to keep you from becoming “chilly”. [Rhoback] is confident [the] top of the line q-zips will fit your lifestyle like they do [theirs].”
Notes From A Guy’s Perspective:
The Rhoback Quarter Zips range from Small to 3XL and run slightly smaller than their polo sizing. The fabric allows for the material to stretch and move with the body not causing friction or tension in any areas or feel uncomfortable with natural rotation. Not to mention the zippier quality is impeccable and made to last. Most often, buttons, zippers, etc. come across as a brand’s last thought. The Rhoback zippers run smoothly without snagging on the inseams or misalignment of the teeth. This is a staple in any guy’s wardrobe- especially golfers/ more active men. The Q-Zip is versatile, designed for both on and off the tee- great for on the course, and in the clubhouse or at dinner following a round.

Size up in the Q-Zips. As mentioned earlier they run slightly smaller than other Rhoback items. If you’re a medium in the polos, try a large in the Q- Zips.
Caring for the q-zip:
Safe for machine washing and drying. The brand recommends washing the Q-zips on cold followed by tumble drying. After washing and drying, the q-zips have maintained shape and have not shrunk during the process. With specific washing or drying questions/ concerns please reach out to Rhoback directly and their team will be able to answer and address those for you!

5/5 stars. Overall this is a great piece and a recommended staple for any man’s wardrobe.
