Galvin Green, the No.1 brand in technical golf wear, is redefining the level of performance for clothing worn by serious golfers with the introduction of even more lightweight fabrics and contemporary designs in its 2017 Part Two range.
Designed for golfers by golfers, the new collection from the premium Swedish brand challenges conventional boundaries for comfort and style in outerwear, as well as adding top-quality PrimaLoft® padding and body-mapping to other high-performance clothing for greater warmth during the winter months. In total, there are 37 brand new lines in the range with six fresh colour choices.
Flagship garments across five different layers – from unrivalled waterproof jackets with tonal spring-loaded zippers to matching thermal base layers – are presented in sleek black and bright yellow combinations in keeping with Galvin Green style.
“Having pioneered the Multi-layer Concept for greater breathability and comfort more than a decade ago, we’re now looking to raise the level of overall garment performance and styling,” said CEO/Managing Director Christian Nilsson.
“In both the men’s and ladies’ collections golfers can choose to rethink and adapt different colourways, while matching up compatible layers to contend with whatever the weather may bring,” he added.
Revolutionary performance fabrics
Once again the brand is introducing new materials, pioneering technical features and challenging the concepts of comfort and design. New to the range is the BRUCE WINDSTOPPER® featuring hybrid technology resulting in the perfect formula in the most blustery conditions. The distinctive new designs and proven garments don’t stop there with the flagship C-KNIT™ ACHILLIES waterproof jacket; the new DASH INSULA™ pullover; the MAX Ventli8™ polo shirt and EBBOT SKINTIGHT™ all featuring eye-catching styles and state-of-the-art technology.
The brand new versatile full-zip BRUCE jacket in GORE® WINDSTOPPER® fabric is totally windproof and highly breathable.
The upper-body and sleeves feature a warming Polyamide fabric with PrimaLoft® padding and GORE® WINDSTOPPER® lining to keep out windchill. The lower front and back of the garment is made in lightweight GORE® WINDSTOPPER® 3-layer fabric to sustain a core body temperature, enabling the player to fully focus on the game. Available in Black in sizes: S-3XL.
The flagship ACHILLIES waterproof full-zip jacket in ultra-lightweight stretch GORE-TEX® fabric with C-KNIT™ backer features a high collar and cuffs in a rubber-like neoprene material designed to repel heavy rain fall. The revolutionary C-KNIT™ backer enables the garment to ‘slide & glide’ over garments worn underneath and avoid restrictions to the swing. The jacket also includes adjustable chest tabs, an elasticated waist for maximum comfort, plus a prominent tonal zipper and back pocket. Colour options are Iron grey/Black/Yellow, Kings blue/Black/White & Black/Iron grey/White in sizes S–3XL.
Another pioneering garment in the popular INSULA™ line is the DASH half-zip pullover, which combines outstanding thermal regulation with maximum breathability for the perfect garment in cold conditions. The pullover incorporates soft and light Polyamide fabric with new padding around the shoulders and elbows and features a single contemporary chest pocket. Available in Black/Iron grey in sizes S-3XL.
Offering an extremely high level of breathability and moisture wicking properties, the MAX is a stylish short-sleeved shirt from the exclusive VENTIL8™ Plus range. It has a distinctive yarn-dyed stripe design on the front and back, plus a two-ply constructed curling-resistant collar and cuffs. Available in Navy/White/Electric red; Kings blue/White/Black; Black/Iron grey/White & Iron grey/White/Yellow in sizes: S-2XL.
The EBBOT is a premium quality SKINTIGHT™ Thermal base layer with long sleeves, a crew neck and a striking pattern design on the shoulders and halfway down each sleeve. Advanced knitting techniques and hi-tech fibres provide warmth without bulk, while being able to transport moisture away from the body. Available in White/Kings blue/Iron grey and Black/Yellow/White in sizes: S-2XL.
The new Ladies’ collection encourages female golfers to forget about traditional colour lines and consider the Galvin Green tone-on-tone concept to match garments in a personal touch in up to nine modern colourways.
“Pure, smart and classic colours offer endless opportunities to create the perfect game-day combination and we have given lady golfers the chance to create their own look out on the course without fear of clashing,” said lead designer Antonia Brändström.
The new lightweight waterproof jacket in GORE-TEX® Paclite® technology fabric is the AKITA, which features stretch inserts and shaped sleeves for maximum freedom of movement and styling. It has a two-way front zipper with a spring-loaded puller; cuffs with tab and a touch & close fastener; front pockets with zipper closing, an elastic drawstring on the hem; and a repositioned side seam for optimum comfort and fit. Colour options are Navy/White, Moonlight blue/Dusty blue, Heather/Wineberry in sizes XS-XL.
The distinctive new Hybrid jacket called DASIA comes in a lightweight polyester fabric with INSULA™ stretch inserts for thermal insulation and unrestricted movement. Lined with PrimaLoft® padding for extra warmth, it’s available in two colour options of Moonlight blue & Dusty blue or Wineberry & Wild orchid and sizes XS-XL.
Another newcomer to the INSULA™ range is the DAY single colour jacket with tone-on-tone embroidery. The soft fabric combination of 90% polyester and 10% elastane insulates the body, while still allowing it to breathe. It comes in both Navy or Wineberry and sizes XS-XL.
The two-tone, short-sleeved shirt offers contrasting colours on the sleeves and collar and features an unusual mix of cotton and polyester. The sporty finish provides a slit at the back of the collar for extra breathability and there are four colour choices in White/ Navy, Nectarine/White, Dusty blue/Moonlight blue & Wild Orchid/Heather in sizes XS-XL.
As well as the traditional wide range of trousers, skorts and shorts, there is also a new SKINTIGHT™ Thermal long sleeve crew neck top with an upper-body print featuring all the colours in the 2017 spectrum.
