[REVIEW] Galvin Green C-Knit AW18 ARGON Jacket and ARN Trousers.

Galvin Green C-KNIT Waterproofs.

 
Style - it's super subjective so I'll leave it. I like it, you may or may not.
 
 
I play all year round, 3/4 rounds a week at least so being in London I get caught in the rain a lot. 
 
 
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 £700 for what my research was showing as the best top layer available.
 
And oh boy.
 
 
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.

Thanks so much! :) Nice to know people enjoy it.

They are on sale atm at least in the UK. Around £250 so if you're in the market for a pair - it's a no brainer!

Thanks! My reviews are usually very short, and may not be super comprehensive, but there is a ton of reviews online. I'm trying to just cover the points that others have missed, or I was looking for and couldn't find.

 

And yes, the quality is incredible. I'm in the process of basically changing my whole wardrobe to Galvin Green; and maybe some other brands if I find the quality amazing.

That's coming from a guy that thought Nike DryFit tees were the bees knees and bought all of them in his size from a shop.

:) Most of them are still in the plastic. Will probably be donated somewhere ;d
