Galway Bay’s New 2021 Rainwear Line Already Making Waves

NOVI, MI – Galway Bay’s (galwaybaygolf.com) newest All-Weather rainwear line recently debuted with instant acclaim and improvements to its renowned lightweight, breathable, fully waterproof Hydro-Flex 32 fabric. The award-winning collection of jackets, pants and pullovers, also known for its ability to block wind and rain, and allow golfers to stretch and move freely while staying warm and dry, showcases classic style and some new fashion-forward touches.

New for 2021, Galway Bay has made its ultra-waterproof Hydro-Flex 32 fabric even lighter and stretchier for better freedom of movement. Also, new colorways in the All-Weather Jacket line include black-on-black, black-on-sage and, for the first time, an eye-catching short-sleeved white jacket with black accents.

Galway Bay’s new All-Weather Pants are now available with a quieter, lighter Hyrdo-Flex 32 fabric for comfort and ease of motion. The waterproof and windproof pants now come in standard and tailored fit – with a more modern-cut tapered leg – options. Both pants feature belt loops, a seven-inch zipper and nine-inch-deep pockets, are designed to look like and be worn as golf slacks, eliminating the need to dress in layers. Galway Bay’s newest pants are constructed of the improved Hyrdo-Flex 32 material and can be ordered to fit a golfer’s exact waist and inseam sizes, optimizing comfort, fit and style like no other rain pant ever has.

THE 2021 LINE

The 2021 expansion of the Galway Bay line shows a commitment to the most cutting-edge materials and design in the industry while presenting an inviting variety of styles and colorways.

The all-new Black-on-Black All-Weather Long-Sleeve Jacket is available at a debut price of $299 (regular retail price – $329) while the matching unlined, lightweight and highly breathable Black All-Weather Pants, in classic fit, retail for $184. The All-Weather Short Sleeve Jacket will retail for $249 but is currently available for $229.

Later this year, an All-Weather Short-Sleeve White (with black accents) Jacket will be available for $249 along with the All-Weather Long-Sleeve Black with Sage Jacket ($329). “The Short-Sleeve White Jacket is an eye-catching piece that will have its instant fans. The black-on-black is a versatile staple that will likely be our best seller but we’re excited to be doing new things with our colorways and how the accents panels and the logos appear on jackets so the looks really pop. The Black with Sage Jacket really takes some fun, new directions with the accent panels but it’s still a great-looking, classic piece,” says Brown.

THE TECHNOLOGY

Galway Bay’s bi-component technology (Hydro-Flex 32) is a proprietary, three-layer 100% waterproof fabric that is constructed with a hydrophilic interior to pull moisture away from the skin and transfer it to the outer layer. The exterior surface area disperses and releases moisture for more efficient dry times. It regulates temperature in both hot and cold conditions. In addition, the fabric is more breathable, stretchable than ever, and features a rubberized waterproof zipper that together ensures the ultimate comfort and fit providing true performance.

All Galway Bay fabrics are designed to breathe easy, releasing excess body heat and reducing sweat so golfers can swing and move freely.

Unveiling The Official Uniforms For USA Golf

CARLSBAD, CA – Now that the nearly three-year-long road to qualifying for golfers has officially come to an end, attention now shifts to Kasumigaseki Country Club just outside of Tokyo where players will compete for their chance at history. As the Official Uniform Provider for USA GOLF, today we’re proud to unveil the uniforms that will be worn by the American team for both the men’s and women’s events in Tokyo.

Once we were renamed as the Official Uniform Provider for USA Golf, we began working with Tokyo-based artist Hiroko Takahashi on concepts for how the red, white and blue would show up in Tokyo. Takahashi’s designs are iconic and instantly recognizable through her use of minimal elements like circles and straight lines meant to represent infinite possibilities. While she has worked with us on designing products in other categories at our brand, designing these uniforms for golf was a first in her career.

Each day, both the men’s and women’s uniforms will represent one of these characteristics through Takahashi’s design aesthetic: Round 1 – Wind, Round 2 – Forest, Round 3 – Fire, and Round 4 – Mountain.

For the men’s team, the polos will be a mixture of our Ultimate365 and HEAT.RDY lines so that players can stay loose and cool as temperatures rise in Tokyo. Our HEAT.RDY materials are made with lightweight, Aqua-X yarns that draw away sweat; and we incorporated body ventilation zones where athletes need it most so that they can be ready to face the heat.

Players will also have an option to wear a long-sleeve, Ultimate365 polo that’s breathable, but with UPF50 sun protection.

For bottoms, men will have a blue pant option made with our meltaway material; giving players a soft and premium feel to the touch but with ventilation to promote air flow as they play. There is also a white option that features our lightweight material with twill for a distinctive look and style.

For the women competing on behalf of USA GOLF, uniforms will come in a mixture of our HEAT.RDY and AEROREADY materials so that they can stay cool and perform their best on the course.

The men’s and women’s apparel will feature the same print patterns for each day of competition from Takahashi’s designs.

In addition to the men’s and women’s teams wearing the apparel in Tokyo, adidas outfitted both teams for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games and 2019 Pan-Am Games. Casual golf apparel will also be provided for player caddies and USA GOLF staff for all events.
