Galvin Green reveal 'virtually weightless' jacket


Galvin Green has revealed their newest garment in the form of their 'virtually weightless' BOW Shell jacket, which is claimed to weigh just slightly more than two golf balls. 

The technical performance brand continues with their aim to revolutionise golf clothing with their newest product, which features exclusively in its 2017 Part One apparel range.

Expressly designed for golfers by golfers, the new BOW Shell Layer garment weighs just 107 grams (2 golf balls weigh 92 grams), while still being completely windproof, breathable and water repellent.

Galvin Green's newest offering has been created to give golfers exceptional freedom of movement throughout the swing while simultaneously protecting the wearer against windchill out on the course.

Creative Director Mats Lundqvist says that the jacket has been the result of extensive product testing, and is the lightest jacket Galvin Green have ever produced.

He said: “The BOW is an extraordinary garment and the product of extensive testing with different fabrics to find the very best way to protect golfers without adding weight,” said

“It’s by far the lightest jacket that Galvin Green has ever produced and in a class of its own when it comes to premium performance outerwear.”

Galvin Green BOW Shell Jacket: Features

An ultra-thin WINDSTOPPER® membrane is laminated to a lightweight abrasion-resistant textile layer. It creates a versatile, microporous garment that allows water vapour to pass from within unhindered to give the jacket its breathability and keep the body at an optimum performance temperature.

High-tec GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Active Shell fabric construction, which makes the jacket totally windproof, water repellent and highly breathable. 

The lighest jacket Galvin Green has ever made at just 107 grams, giving exceptional freedom of movement for golfers

Designed with a high collar and fitted cuffs to protect the golfer from the stiffest of breezes, the BOW is also extremely packable due to its ultra-light weight and naturally thin material.

Available in three colour options - Deep Ocean blue, Black and Iron Grey - the BOW can be worn in conjunction with Warm, Cool or Base Layers as part of the pioneering Galvin Green Multi-Layer Concept that allows serious golfers to layer garments for optimum comfort in the conditions they’re set to play in.

The Galvin Green BOW has an RRP of £200 and is available in sizes S-3XL.
