Note: I am not being paid for this post - I just like recommending good companies with great employees and products.
Today we are going to talk about Airborn Disc Golf apparel! If you haven’t visited the website to check out the plethora of unique and high-quality gear, your game and style are missing out. Many of the top players in the game have sported their stuff, so don’t be left behind! Check out Airborn Disc Golf to get started.
This is a company based in St. Paul, MN, run by Jason Tautges and Cale Leiviska. I have been wearing apparel from Airborn since they first opened their brick and mortar retail (we miss you!) a few years back.
The first time I went into the shop to check it out, I was greeted by Cale. It was amazing how down to earth, positive, and helpful he was. If you hadn’t known prior, you would never have guessed that you were talking to the current 5th ranked player in the world. Cale helped me navigate my way to some new discs, and from there I bought a tee shirt that was super soft to support the business.
Well fast forward to today, and I bet in my spare time I wear more Airborn Disc Golf apparel than anything else. My wife has at least 4 or 5 Airborn shirts/hoodies of her own! So the reason I’m saying all this is that beyond just liking the brand and the people, the quality and functionality of everything they sell is top notch. I have a few good friends who won’t buy anything cheap or non-functional, and they are sporting more Airborn stuff than me! Everything Airborn sells has the intent to use when playing disc golf in mind.
Customized Disc Golf Apparel with PDGA Number
Many of the items can be customized on the site (I have 3 items with my name and PDGA number on them), and they are all comfortable, fit for throwing discs (no loose sleeves, non baggy mid sections, fleece lined items, etc.), and have a great fit for every season. There are a couple of hoodies I can use instead of a winter coat, and usually do, when I’m playing disc golf. Note: In our video at Vision Quest disc golf course in Cedar, MN, I’m wearing a custom Airborn hoodie!
Disc Golf Hoodies
So it turns out that the air temp was deceiving, and like any good self confident Minnesota player, I decided anything above 30 only required a light long sleeve shirt. Well, I think with the wind chill had to be 5 degrees. It was super chilly, so after seeing Cale in this hoodie, I decided to make the adult choice and get one.
First things first - Wow are they soft. When they say super soft, they mean more super soft than you are thinking soft. I went with the olive color, and it looks great. I love the seed in the “jet engine” logo they have on the front, and the only other logo is their “simple seed” on the right arm. It is a fun and unobtrusive branding item. Also, with just a long sleeve shirt and that hoodie, I felt perfectly warm, which is surprising, given that the hoodie feels very light. Throwing in the hoodie felt easy and unrestricted. I stayed very warm, and I feel as if this item at a large popular retailer would be well over $75. I would happily pay that for an item of this quality, style, and functionality. When I got home my wife was envious of my hoodie and wanted her own! I can’t stress this enough: if you want quality gear, Airborn Disc Golf is where you want to start.
Disc Golf Course Design
Cale and Jason of Airborn Disc Golf were instrumental in the design of Vision Quest disc golf course, so note if you are looking for some help getting a course designed, you have proof of the awesome work they do!
Disc Golf Discs with a Unique Stamp
Of course the discs themselves! Most of what I throw I have purchased through Airborn Disc Golf. I like being able to pick a unique stamp, and if I have any questions there are always quick to respond, and are super helpful.
