Galvin Green Waterproofs for Winter Golf 2014
Posted at October 28, 2014
The entire Galvin Green waterproofs collection for Autumn/Winter 2014 is available online at Golfposer and here we guide you on finding the right golf jacket for you this season.
Autumn/Winter is a typically wet, windy and often cold season for golf in the UK - but this doesn't mean you can't still enjoy your round. With the right preparation and application of product knowledge, you can gear yourself up for warmth and comfort with the Galvin Green Multi Layer Concept and protect yourself against the elements on the golf course. Galvin Green Gore Tex golf jackets are technically superior and have won multiple awards over the years, with an indisputable reputation for quality and reliability. Following up our previous Insula golf wear guide, here we explain the differences between particular Galvin Green jacket styles to help you with your decision.
Galvin Green Performance Shell Jackets
Galvin Green waterproofs come in one of two distinctive styles; The Performance Shell or the Paclite Shell. Both shells are fully protective with the Galvin Green lifetime waterproof guarantee; both shells feature Gore Tex microscopic pore technology; both shells offer superb breathability and total comfort. The only difference between these two shells is the internal mesh lining of the Performance Shell jacket - offering slightly more weight and the adaptability to wear the jacket off the course as well. The following Galvin Green jacket styles use the Performance Shell with mesh lining:
APEX - full zip with added Gore Tex stretch for total freedom of movement and no restriction during the golf swing. A pure golf jacket with chest adjustment and zip chest pocket.
ACE - full zip with two front pockets (above, left) | ART - full zip jacket (above, right)
ANGUS - half zip added Gore Tex Stretch and with chest adjustment
Galvin Green Paclite Shell Jackets
The second style of shell is known as the Paclite which is quite self explanatory - these golf jackets are packable for the golf bag and extremely lightweight. As outlined, the Paclite shell retains its full waterproof capability, breathability and comfort - despite weighing just 280g. A single shell waterproof jacket which has been purely designed for golfers, the Paclite styles are more often more suited for slightly warmer conditions but as per the Multi-Layer Concept, a warm and lightweight Insula would be more than sufficient to increase warmth levels on the golf course. The following Galvin Green Paclite styles are featured for Autumn/Winter 2014:
ARON - full zip with added Gore Tex Stretch and chest adjustments. Water repellent zip chest pocket also featured.
ADLER - half zip with added Gore Tex Stretch and chest adjustments. Rear pocket features to prevent swing restriction
ASTRO - half zip with waist cord adjustment (above, left) | AIDAN - full zip with two front pockets (above, right)
AMES - full zip, short sleeves with added Gore Tex Stretch (above, left) | AL - half zip with short sleeves and chest adjustment (above, right)
