Why choose Galvin Green?
Galvin Green is a highly accredited brand within the golf wear industry. Best known for their innovative golf waterproof products, the Scandinavian brand continue to produce award winning designs to meet the needs of every golfer. Established in 1997, Galvin Green try to always keep the modern day golfer in mind and use a design team of golfers themselves – in order to integrate experience into their products to match the stand-out technology.
Being market leaders in golf wear design and development, Galvin ‘never compromise’ with the quality of their products. At the core of every item is a focus on comfort and suppleness to compliment the golf swing as far as possible. The fabrics they use are especially developed to have significant stretch to allow for freedom of movement, whilst taking nothing away from specific priorities - such as waterproofing or insulating.
Galvin Green’s 2011 golf collection is centred around their ‘multi-layer’ concept. Essentially, the design team have created the ideal range of garments which allows for mixing and matching to protect against a variety of weather conditions to provide optimum performance on the golf course. There are four categories of products in the multi-layer concept: dry, warm, cool and base layers. Every piece has been designed for a specific function and Golfposer will now explain how Galvin Green achieve their goals.
The fabric used in both the Gore-Tex® Performance and Paclite shells is all about moisture transportation and breathability. Both shells are guaranteed to keep your body dry, even if you are in direct contact with wet surfaces. The secret is in the fabric; there are 1.4 billion microscopic pores per square centimetre of fabric. This then means that the pores are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet – yet 700 times bigger than water vapour molecules. It takes no great mathematician to work out that body heat will therefore be released whilst water cannot leak through the jacket. There are also air columns within the Gore-Tex® jackets which allow for optimum breathability and comfort. Both types of jacket are easy to maintain and can be washed normally at 40 degrees – but it is advisable not to use any fabric softeners. Included in many of the jackets are extra features for adjustments so that your personal comfort is maximised. The only difference between the two Galvin Green Waterproof jackets is that the Paclite version is designed to be lightweight and incredibly easy to pack away – saving space in your golf bag if the rain stops!
Gore-Tex® jackets may not suit every golfer’s budget, but the time and effort put into the design matched with the quality and durability guarantee of every product make them a must-have from golfposer.com!
The warm layer category includes the Windstopper jackets and Insula mid-layer pieces. The Windstopper is fully windproof and maintains the body at an optimum performance temperature. Windstopper golf jackets are incredibly breathable and protect against wind-chill without fail. Windstopper jackets are very lightweight and the microscopic pores in this fabric are 900 times larger than a water vapour molecule. Golf Insula layer tops are fantastically warm jumpers. They are developed with an ultra-stretchy fabric which is lightweight and allows for a snug fit for added comfort. Galvin Green Insula mid-layers have internal air chambers which hold the heat produced naturally from the body and insulate the wearer – making these the ideal pieces for winter golfing.
The cool layers are all about comfort and staying cool. Galvin Green accomplish this by integrating Ventil8 technology into their golf polo shirts. Ventil8 works by spreading body perspiration and moisture over a wider area which allows for twice as quick evaporation. We all know that sweating can make everyone smell a little less fresh than they would like – so Galvin Green created a fabric with anti-bacterial properties. Ventil8 polo shirts prevent any odours and keep the wearer feeling fresh for longer.
Galvin Green compression shirts are excellent for winter as they combat against the cold weather very effectively. The compression technology enhances blood circulation which increases the oxygen supply for the muscles – improving stamina so you can play better for longer. The skin tight compression shirts also contain the same anti-bacterial properties to maintain freshness and comfort for every golfer. Every golfer should own at least one Galvin Green base layer for those extra-cold days on the course!
Galvin Green have been showered with awards for their design and technological advances in the golf wear industry. Having received several ‘best on test’ awards and also ‘Best Waterproof Brand’ for three years running from Today’s Golfer magazine, we at Golfposer believe every golfer needs a Galvin Green piece in their wardrobe for every type of weather you may encounter on the golf course!
