Galvin Green, a Swedish company that makes high-end golf outerwear, has unveiled a new Gore-Tex C-Knit Backer Collection that was worn by the 2016 European Ryder Cup team and will again be worn by Team Europe in 2018.
The line uses the company’s new three-layer technology, which is made in Japan and is noteworthy for its light weight, breathability and waterproofing. And as we noted in our 2015 feature on Galvin Green, its outerwear is made with the specific needs of golfers in mind.
“C-Knit Backer represents the next generation of golf rainwear and another ‘first’ for Galvin Green as the pioneering brand in the waterproofs sector,” said Christian Nilsson, CEO/Managing Director of Galvin Green. “A revolutionary fabric technology has been integrated into garments designed for golfers by golfers to offer maximum protection from the elements, while being amazingly lightweight and stylish at the same time.”
The jackets have “ergonomic” high collars for extra weather resistance and comfort, rubberized zipped cuffs, waterproof zippers and adjustable waist width. The pants have elastic waistbands for a comfortable fit and back openings for easy pocket access. The jackets and pants are made from a rubber-like neoprene material that’s made to repel water.
Galvin Green apparel is available at TrendyGolfUSA.com and other high-end retailers.
