TESTERS ANNOUNCED: Galway Bay Rain Gear


Recommended Posts

Im in. Here in south Florida we deal with rain on a regular basis. Worst rain has to be heavy down pours with big wind. I have FJ pants and FJ jacket. Decent product but to warm for down here. Interested to test light weight totally water prof gear if there is such a thing. I cant find it.

Randy from Florida

Basic Puma Rain pants (don't wear much)

Adidas Climaproof jacket (clutch - never leave home without it during summer)

Its Florida, so any summer afternoon we can get some bad ones.  Take cover --lighting capital of the US!

Worst was playing Santuary Ridge in Clermont Florida - torrential rain / wind  and not easy to find shelters.

1. Mike/Michigan
2. Cheap clearance. Pants too long, jacket too loose.
3. Got caught in a huge unexpected rain 2 summers ago. It had been a 10% chance and had no rain gear on me. Completely soaked and golfed horrible the rest of the way with my mind on my uncomfortableness.

1. Logan/Texas
2. 10 year old FootJoy 3/4 sleeve & my worst slacks
3. first round of 2019, it was about 20 degrees outside with 10 mile sustained winds with 20+ mph gusts, we got probably 4" of rain the night before with a steady mist the entire day. my foursome was the only group on the coarse and it still took us six hours to finish the round.

miserable day, but would absolutely do it again!

Jason, North Carolina

Nike Pants, Footjoy Top

Played in a Hurricane Matthew.  Winds were like 45 and  gusts up to 70.   Pouring rain, flagsticks were completely sideways.   At one point, I actually had second thoughts after seeing limbs blowing around and trees falling.   Absolutely ridiculous, but I did it.

Matt Aamold (Vancouver, WA)
Greg Norman Weatherknit rain jacket. Nike/Forester rain pants. (this list could go on and on).


I live in the great PNW. Right now it's raining/sleeting, I never go out in the winter because nothing I've ever worn has been able to protect me from the elements. I keep seeing reviews on VLOGs but never buy because nothing works, maybe if something actually worked I'd have more fun.

Sean, Calgary Alberta.

Footjoy pants, sun mountain jacket.

6 degrees Celsius May long weekend in Alberta, sideways rain umbrella was useless. In a tournament pro shop sold out of gear, watched players buy headcovers to use as mitts. It was miserable. I’m a scratch, i shot 85, it was one of the lowest scores for the day ha!
