A decade ago, in 2013, the first Galvin Green GORE-TEX jackets and pants using bluesign® approved eco-friendly fabric were added to the range. All waterproof garments in the latest line continue to use these sustainable materials that maximize a golfer’s performance; while, at the same time seek to minimize social and environmental impact.

Lined Waterproofs for Added Warmth

The sporty ALBERT men’s jacket is a great option for those golfers seeking a fully waterproof style that stands up to the test on cold wet days. The lightweight mesh lining delivers an added warming effect by trapping warm air between the body and clothing pieces, while the use of stretch fabric in the design ensures golfers can continue to swing comfortably regardless of the weather. New colorways include White/Navy/Orange and Navy/White/Blue combinations.

Another popular model is the ARLIE jacket that can be paired up with layers underneath to ensure optimal performance in rain, wind and cold. It is available in three colors and up to 5XL in size.
