Galvin Green have turned to science for Part Two of their 2020 golf clothing collection, as the premium golf brand merges performance with sustainability and style.

The “Science of Excellence” apparel range sees Galvin Green call on 30 years of experience and passion in performance-driven design to create technical clothing aimed at giving golfers an extra edge on the course. New styles and colour combinations aim to provide a feel-good factor.

“We’ve taken a scientific approach to designing this new range to ensure that success on the golf course is built into every detail that’s relevant to the golfer and their performance,” said CEO Nicholai Stein.

“No detail is too small if it has a reason to exist, because Galvin Green understand that serious golfers never stop striving to improve their game where they can.

“Our aim is to help them with garments that offer exceptional comfort and performance as well as style – so we mirror that pursuit of perfection across our entire range of clothing.” he added.

The comprehensive collection of golf clothing is designed to enable golfers to perform well in all weather conditions and includes cutting-edge fabric technologies to maximise performance levels, while minimising any social or environmental impact.

Galvin Green’s holistic approach to sustainability began in 2013 with many garments in the new range made from materials approved under the globally recognised Bluesign textile manufacturing standard.This includes all GORE-TEX outerwear products, INSULA mid-layer garments, VENTIL8 PLUS pants and even garment labels.

Almost all INSULA sweaters are now made from recycled polyester, while hangers and bags are made of recycled plastic.

Comfort Combinations

Among their latest innovations, Galvin Green have put forward ‘Comfort Combinations’, providing golfers with layering suggestions for different playing conditions:

- Rainy, Cold and Windy

- Windy and Sunny

- Sunny and Warm

The layering suggestions are then matched with Galvin’s new colourways. In the new men’s range for example, the outfits for a rainy day feature the APOLLO waterproof GORE-TEX Paclite stretch fabric jacket in the new Black/White/Red Orange/Sharkskin colours, plus the DWIGHT INSULA sweater made from recycled plastic bottles in Red Orange and the EDWIN SKINTIGHT Thermal top in Black.

Waterproof Guaranteed

There are no fewer than five GORE-TEX technologies in the range that are all Guaranteed To Keep You Dry.

The revolutionary super-lightweight SHAKEDRY product technology sees water bead up and roll off the garment, which is available in the full-zip ASHTON (Ash Grey/Red & Ash Grey/Silver options). Extremely breathable, this streamlined jacket also features shaped sleeves for easy movement, an elastic drawstring at the hem and cuffs with partial elastic to keep out the rain.

The four other Shell Layer waterproofs include the GORE-TEX fabric with a C-KNIT backer that will ‘slide & glide’ over garments worn underneath (the ARCHIE flagship model features TECHSTEEL on the shoulders for greater durability that easily handles abrasion when carrying the bag), with GORE-TEX Superstretch technology offering optimal freedom of movement.
