Galvin Green Winter Products
Posted at September 13, 2012
We take a close look at the brand new arrivals from Galvin Green - the best brand for Winter golfing!
As much as we may not wish to believe it, Summer has now been and passed (if she ever arrived) and it's time to start thinking about Autumn/Winter golfing! Many of you may well go into hibernation and refuse to pick up a club during the bitter Scottish winter, but if you kit yourself out correctly and protect yourself from the elements - winter golf can be thoroughly enjoyable! Everyone knows about Galvin Green and their reputation for golf waterproofs, but they are one of the best providers of warm golf apparel as well!
For many years at Golfposer we have championed the excellence of Gore-Tex fabrics which Galvin Green use to create their fantastic waterproof golf wear with lifetime guarantee - but equally as great is the Insula™ warm layer fabric incorporated into much of their winter clothing and accessory range. Insula products have terrific insulation properties using built-in air chambers and also offer maximum breathability through allowing excess moisture to escape the body. Insula garments are soft to the touch and have added stretch for a fantastic level of comfort and freedom of movement during the golf swing - unsurprising considering the team at Galvin Green design every product especially for golfers!
Insula garments are excellent to wear beneath an outer shell waterproof jacket or windstopper - embracing the Multi Layer Concept from Galvin Green - but any piece from the AW12 range looks just as great on its own! We love the Duran full zip insula jacket which is available in a stunning Brilliant Blue with contrasting tones of black and white throughout, whilst the White version also includes the brand new 2012 colour of green from the Swedish golf experts. A few styles of half zip Insula pullovers are also available, notably the trendy Donovan which has contrast colour detailing on the reverse bottom and sides. Galvin Green outerwear is simply fantastic for Autumn/Winter golf and will certainly be the choice of golf apparel for the GP team this season!
Another excellent piece of technology Galvin Green incorporate into their winter golfing range is the 10° Skintight Compression base layers, in which some pieces use a clever body mapping system along with hollow fibres, just like within Insula fabrics, for thermal insulation. Built-in multi layer technology provides extra compression to increase the warming effect on the upper back muscle groups which are key to everybody's swing whilst there are specific areas with reduced compression for flexibility and ease of movement. Extremely high breathability is once again on offer with 10° Skintight garments and this allows for extra ventilation in warmer areas of the body to keep you comfortable also. The body mapping system is utilised in the Edge and Elmo base layers, whilst the classic Elton top and Evo leggings use regular 10° Compression warmth technology.
Also included within the winter range from Galvin Green is a fantastic selection of accessories which are sure to keep you warm and comfortable on the course later this season. Using the previously mentioned Insula fabric, the Doyle hat is soft and stretchy and is available in a range of colours so you can match one up with every Galvin Green outfit to look good as well as keeping warm! The Brady beanie and Breeze bobble hat each have a windstopper lining to provide protection against windchill but still allow for breathability as well. Windstopper fabrics are soft and lightweight but perform excellently to thermoregulate your body temperature - keeping you in an optimum performance state every round! Windstopper gloves are also available which have an all weather synthetic grip whilst the Walter mitts are ideal for slipping on in between shots.
Galvin Green golf clothing is worn on tour by exciting Danish player Thorbjørn Olesen and also Ryder Cup star Peter Hanson - who will be in action at Medinah Country Club on the 28th of September hoping to secure back to back victories for team Europe!
