Galvin Green dominates in raingear. The company consistently evolves apparel that will keep you on the training course no matter how dim the forecast. Every design is intelligently crafted to guarantee the technology doesn’t add weight, impede the swing or create additional discomfort. Weather-protection is useless if you fail to actually play in it.
Typically this category provides a heavy-duty and a lightweight option, yet this year the Galvin Green Alon jacket offered the ultimate combination of rainfall coverage and wearability.
The shell of the Alon jacket is tightly knit therefore it is softer and quieter— no irritating “swishing” sounds. Underneath, the Gore-Tex membrane provides total waterproofing plus wind protection. The C-Knit dionysus inside, a new Gore-Tex technology, causes it to be lightweight and breathable while lessening friction for an unrestricted swing.
The Axel pant uses the same Gore-Tex fabric along with C-Knit backer, so they’ll glide over garments with ease. They’re made to release excess heat and dampness from the inside while blocking any additional drinking water from the outside. These pieces are made to final, so don’t let the prices scare a person off.
