Galvin Green C-KNIT Waterproofs. Style - it's super subjective so I'll leave it. I like it, you may or may not. I have the Argon jacket ( http://www.galvingreen.com/products/argon/argon-g761777) and Arn trousers ( http://www.galvingreen.com/products/arn/arn-g761971). I play all year round, 3/4 rounds a week at least so being in London I get caught in the rain a lot. https://www.instagram.com/p/BU4kAW3h9oy I have used Nike Hyperadapt waterproofs before, but I felt like it was affecting my game. So I decided to bite the bullet and fork out Â£700 for what my research was showing as the best top layer available. And oh boy. https://www.instagram.com/p/BXDJ3-Yhwad Arrived in July, in a nice box. When I took it out my first thought was to send it back. I wasn't used to clothes weight that much. Or that little to be honest. So thin I was sure it will rip within 10minutes. And it had no pockets - something I've overlooked when making the purchase. Luckily, or not, it rained pretty much instantly so I took the layer out, put it on top of my tee and ... I was dry. It was hot as hell (22-24oC / 72-74oF). I didn't sweat a lot more than in the polo itself... It stopped raining, i took it off. It started, i put it back on. 0 interference with my swing. The C-Knit backing and sleeves take a little getting used to, but it doesn't take long. It's just something touching your neck and hands. I stopped noticing it after maybe 2 holes. Now when it got colder, the rain got a little more annoying, but again, I put it over my pullover and couldn't be happier. Same with the trousers. Easy to put on, comfortable both as a layer by themselves or on top of my golf trousers. The things i don't like - i keep it in my bag. It gets creased as hell. I'd love some sort of a 'storage' bag or smth that i could put the stuff into, but its not a biggie. And another non biggie - the bloody naming and variety of the product leaves me so confused. Even people at Capital Golf in the UK had no idea about the differences. But I guess it must be a Swedish thing cause Ikea does the same. Maybe there is some kind of a system to the naming system - like waterproofs start with "A" but i couldn't find anything to back that up. I also got used to not having pockets in the jacket. It's so thin I'm not sure how they'd manage to put a pocket on it. It's a massive **5/5** and probably the best golf clothing purchase I've made. Any questions - ask.
