Galvin Green 2019 Part 1 Apparel Collection Revealed - New clothing line is made of technical performance fabrics to conquer all weather conditions
Galvin Green 2019 Part 1 Apparel Collection Revealed
Premium performance golf apparel brand Galvin Green has launched its most advanced clothing collection to date for the start of the 2019 season, comprising a total of 368 garments and matching accessories.
These include an even bigger selection of lightweight garments with greater breathability, stretch properties, moisture transportation, thermal insulation and ultraviolet protection than ever before.
Launching alongside the Part 1 Collection is the new Ashton Gore-Tex Shakedry jacket (above, RRP £280), a standalone garment that is the first streamlined, superlight waterproof jacket of its kind in golf. It’s also the lightest rain jacket ever made by Galvin Green – weighing just 174 grams - thanks to the unrivalled Gore-Tex membrane being placed on the outside without a face fabric for the first time. This enables water to bead off the surface, creating minimal chilling effect and a much faster dry-off time.
It also makes it totally windproof, highly breathable, eliminates friction during the golf swing and takes up minimal space inside the golf bag when folded down for storage. It comes in two colour options.
At the forefront is the Archie full-zip waterproof jacket (above, RRP £449.95) in lightweight stretch Gore-Tex fabric, which forms part of the Carbon Series in black, grey and silver colourways. It features the smooth C-Knit ‘slide and glide’ backer and incorporates Gore-Tex Superstretch inserts in key areas - first used on garments worn by Europe’s victorious 2018 Ryder Cup team.
The soft, quiet and extremely breathable jacket also features durable Vectran technology on the shoulders for those who prefer to carry their clubs. Matching super-stretch Axel waterproof trousers are also available in 17 size options across the waist and leg lengths.
The Carbon Series also features the Lloyd full-zip jacket (Silver) and half-zip Lancelot in the flexible Interface-1 hybrid shell layer, plus the Dave full-zip Insula jacket offering thermal regulation. Also included are the Matt and Mylo short sleeve shirts in the moisture-wicking Ventil8 Plus fabric.
A Shell Layer newcomer is the ultra-lightweight Andres full-zip jacket (above, RRP £279.95) in Gore-Tex Paclite stretch fabric technology for minimal swing restriction. Available in six colourways, it features a chest pocket and has matching waterproof Arthur trousers available in red, navy or black in more than 17 size options.
As many as nine garments feature in the versatile and lightweight Interface-1 hybrid range that can be worn 95 out of 100 rounds. The full-zip Laurent and half-zip Lincoln (below, RRP £189.95) come in five colours, including gold and lagoon blue. Each can be paired with the Leo trousers.
The warm Insula range features the new Doug full-zip jacket (below, RRP £189.95) featuring a quality padded front and two handy pockets in the new Antarctica colourway. The Dale jacket and Deon pullover both offer magenta pink colour options, while the high collar Drake pullover comes in seven colour choices.
New Cool Layer short sleeve shirts in Ventil8 Plus fabric include the sporty Myles incorporating a two-tone honeycomb design, plus the Milton (below, RRP £79.95), a multi-fabric shirt in a duel block pattern available in five colourways.
Fitted Noah and regular cut Nash trousers provide excellent moisture transportation in Ventil8 Plus and 100 per cent polyester stretch fabric with UPF 20+.
Finally, the Skintight Thermal base layer range includes the Edgar seamless long sleeve crew neck with a pattern design across the chest, arms and shoulders.
