Galvin Green always aims its products at the top end of the market, and quality comes at a cost. But the whole design, from top to bottom, has been beautifully thought through.
From the double-entry golf trouser pockets, which allow access to your own trousers, to the Velcro golf jacket flaps, which allow the jacket to be tightened around the ribs for better performance in the wind, everything is executed beautifully. Variable leg length trousers also mean you get a perfect fit irrespective of your size.
If you still need convincing, remember you get a three-year waterproof guarantee, so effectively the golf suit could out-last two cheaper options bought over the course of three years. Our only gripe is the lack of a zip-off half-sleeve, which would make the golf jacket more versatile.
The award-winning Austin line has been expanded to offer new colourways. Two-layer Gore-Tex garments offer complete breathability.

Galvin Green Waterproofs User Reviews
I have had my Austin outfit for about a year now and have to say it's been worth every penny. While my playing partners moan of being soaked after a full day of rain the Goretex fabric has keept me amazingly dry. The fit is good too, allowing a full range of movement.
