The latest collection of golfwear from leading apparel brand Galvin Green offers serious golfers a range of high-performance garments designed to help them perform at their very best more often in the most demanding playing conditions. The new 2019 Part Two range available this month has been inspired by the harshest conditions at one of the most challenging links courses in the world- the Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush in County Antrim in Northern Ireland, the host of this year’s 148th Open Championship to be contested the week of July 14-21.
The ground-breaking materials that helped the European Team win the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris- including a completely new GORE-TEX SuperStretch waterproof fabric-have been incorporated into the latest collection, along with innovative designs and colourways across the various layers and accessories.
“Serious golfers have told us how much they value performance golf clothing that helps them to play more often and at a high standard in the most challenging conditions,” said Global Brand Manager Nicholai Stein. “They also put a premium on comfort and style. So this exciting new range of water and wind proof jackets, hoodies, body warmers, ultra-breathable pullovers, shirts and trousers delivers on each of those aspirations with even more colour and size options to choose from.”
The range includes a new version of the award-winning ShakeDry Gore-Tex jacket with a full length silver zip that sees water bead up and run directly off the surface of the super-lightweight garment to avoid any chilling effect. Weighing just 174 grams-that’s just over 6 ounces- the ASHTON jacket enables the golfer to maximize clubhead speed while playing in wet conditions in comfort. It also has a very low packing volume and available in sizes S-3XL.
Alongside the flagship ARCHIE jacket with the C-KNIT backer is the new AARON rain jacket in GORE-TEX stretch fabric with a lightweight mesh lining. The stand-out garment comes in five colour options, including Sharkskin/Black/Lime. It features a distinctive design with front and inner pockets, adjustable chest, waist and cuffs and an elastic drawstring at the hem. Sizes S-4XL.
In all, there are seven different Shell Layer waterproof jackets to choose from in various colour combinations, including the short sleeve, full-sip ALVIN in Black and Navy, plus the GORE-TEX stretch fabric Paclite ANDRES in six colours. Sizes S-3XL.

The versatile INTERFACE-1 hybrid layer range introduced last year that can be worn 95 out of 100 rounds, has been expanded to include 19 new garments. In addition to the popular LINCOLN line of jackets in five colourways, the new collection includes the LYON full-zip jacket featuring a GORE-TEX INFINIUM membrane that provides extra warmth, plus a water-repellent finish. The padded chest and back offers excellent protection from windchill, while front pockets make it an ideal garment for off as well as on the course wear(S-3XL).
