We take a closer look at the range of Galvin Green Shakedry waterproofs which features the most cutting edge technology in golf apparel.
Galvin Green Shakedry | GORE TEX
Galvin Green are pioneers when it comes to protective golf apparel and their latest offering of golf waterproofs features the latest, most innovative GORE-TEX fabric available.
According to the brand, the introduction of SHAKEDRY™ Technology to their arsenal has enabled them to produce their lightest, most packable jackets to date.
This pioneering fabric is already a proven performer across other outdoor sportswear markets with a reputation for being extremely breathable, super lightweight, soft to the touch and ultra quiet for minimal distraction.
It also boasts a high amount of stretch for maximum freedom of movement, while a functional backer textile on the inside provides close-to-the-skin comfort.
On top of the obvious comfort benefits, the traditional membrane interior from a Gore-Tex jacket has been relocated to the exterior (without a conventional face fabric) - hence meaning that water absorption is eradicated, the chilling effect is negated and dry-off time is drastically reduced.
Durably waterproof, windproof, and extremely breathable - this new GORE-TEX membrane contains over 1.4 billion microscopic pores per square cm. These pores are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, but 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule.
This makes the GORE-TEX membrane completely waterproof from the outside, while allowing perspiration to escape from the inside. GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ technology is engineered to minimize friction and maximize speed.
The revolutionary construction makes the water droplets bead up and roll right off the surface - hence the ability to "shake dry".
This season, you can also find their top-of-the-range SHAKEDRY jacket with some even more tech.
The "Angus" Shakedry style now boasts some "Superstretch" inserts; high stretch capacity inserts which optimise movement without compromising on waterproof performance.
Of course, fans of the brand will already know all about this technology - having previously featured within their most recent C-Knit waterproof jacket range.
