Galvin Green Unveils 2020 Part One Apparel Collection
Swedish apparel brand Galvin Green has unveiled its 2020 Part One Collection, which has greatly expanded to nearly 300 performance garments.
Headlining the latest collection is the Apollo Gore-Tec Paclite waterproof jacket. It features front pockets for the first time, carefully designed so as to not create any unwanted distractions or swing interference while also only adding 25 grams to the total weight of 300g.
Easy to pack into the golf bag, the Apollo jacket is extremely breathable and has a super-soft hand feel. Shaped sleeves provide easy movement and cuffs feature partial elastic and a tab with a touch and close Velcro fastener. Adjustable chest width tabs and an elasticated drawstring at the hem deliver a comfortable fit.
At the top of the new range sits two super-lightweight Gore-Tex Shakedry jackets. The Ashton now comes in two colours (grey/silver or ash Grey/red) and the Ashby, pictured above, has a side zip for easy removal and an elastic drawstring for a comfortable and snug fit.

“The half-zip Shakedry jacket has been added due to demand from golfers who prefer an even more streamlined waterproof top,” said new CEO Nicholai Stein.
“World-class tour players who wore the full-zip jacket told us it felt like wearing another shirt, but this version is even lighter and super functional for accomplished players.”
The Archie full-zip waterproof now comes in a third colour whilst the Axel and Arthur waterproof trousers come in more sizes and colours than ever before.
Heading up the versatile Interface-1 range is the 3-level warming effect Lyon jacket (above). Windproof and extremely breathable, it features Primaloft insulation padding on the chest and a Gore-Tex Infinium membrane. An elastic drawstring at the hem and partial elastic cuffs ensure a good fit.
For warmth in cool conditions, the latest Insula layers feature a new standard in thermal comfort. The lightweight, breathable material used in the full-zip Declan jacket offers the softest surface ever for insulation next to the skin. The half-zip pullover Dixon, above, offers an outstanding warming effect and is soft next to the skin.
Galvin Green has also enhanced its Ventil8 Plus collection thanks to a plethora of new designs, including the Markell (above) with a shattering impact print, the Malone in flowing stripes and the Moss with an impactful splash of colours.
Finally, the standout Ladies collection has a series of new garments for the 2020 season, such as the Aurora waterproof jacket, Diane full-zip hoodie, Mercy sleeveless shirt and Misty skirt, the latter two of which are pictured above.
