(Växjö, Sweden) – Galvin Green – the world’s leading maker of functional golf clothing for serious players and the No. 1 global golf partner of GORE-TEX® – has been awarded a Golf Digest 2017 Editors’ Choice Award for Best Golf Raingear.
For the second-consecutive year, Galvin Green has been bestowed with this prestigious honor, further confirming its position as a leader in premium outerwear. A pioneer in the category, Galvin Green was the first to introduce GORE-TEX® C-KNIT™ Backer technology to the golf market earlier this year.
“To once again be recognized by one of game’s most respected editorial outlets is a testament to our drive to develop only the best in performance golf wear,” says Andrew Creed, President of Galvin Green USA. “This season we’re excited to introduce several pieces incorporating new technologies, which will no doubt push the envelope even more.”
Galvin Green is also the Official Team Supplier of Outerwear for the 2016 and 2018 European Ryder Cup Teams. Through this partnership, the company provides its premium waterproof garments to the captains, vice captains, team members and their caddies during the matches at Hazeltine National Golf Club (2016) and Le Golf National (2018).
Based in Sweden, Galvin Green is a pure golf brand that developed the sport’s first apparel layering system – the Multi-Layer Concept – more than a decade ago. This distinctive approach uses leading-edge fabric technologies to ensure the dry comfort, thermal regulation and outer protection that helps players optimize performance.
Also distinguishing the brand is its ‘Dress for the Weather’ app. Free on the App Store or Google Play, the app provides detailed five-day forecasts for thousands of courses in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Europe, and recommends ideal layering solutions for expected levels of heat, precipitation and wind speed.
