Awesome opportunity for our North American spies, I will follow this closely, the idea of only one pair of wet weather pants is really appealing 😁😎

Galway Bay Rain Gear

 

Looked kinda cold and wet out there at Pebble over the weekend, didn't it?

I'd guess staying warm and dry as a spectator would be pretty important, wouldn't you? And never mind the players!

I'd guess a lot of folks tripled up on pants at Pebble - some long johns, regular pants and them some pull-on rain pants. That's three pair of pants (if you count the long johns). Would just one pair of warm, waterproof pants be a better way to go?

That's what Galway Bay thinks, and they say their pants are just the ticket.

TESTERS WANTED!

Galway Bay came out of nowhere to tie for top honors in MyGolfSpy's Best Rain Gear testing last year. Our testers loved the fact the rain pants were actual pants, with belt loops, pockets, a zipper -  you know, pants - that were also waterproof. the rain jacket was a top performer as well, with plenty of ease of movement, lightweight and snazzy looking. 

That's what our testers thought, but we want to know what YOU think. That's why we're looking for FOUR of you to test, review and keep a set of Galway Bay rain gear - fitted, waterproof slacks and a rain jacket (valued at a over $470).

This review opportunity is open to any avid golfer in the US or Canada who's not averse to playing in a little rain.

Don, Washington 

Currently wearing Nike storm rain pants and Ogio pull over rain jacket XXL so I can layer up and still move.

Worst rain here is the norm sideways in 20+ mph wind. Most of the cups on the green were full of water. I live in the Pacific Northwest and my home course has just a handful of trees and the wind always blows so no umbrella use here. I played in a tournament superbowl Sunday, it started snowing with a 20mph northeast wind just as we teed off..

Andy, Missouri

Golf course superintendent in Kansas City. Plenty of wet weather and being out in the rain is NOT a choice. Plus, I worked at a course in Ireland called Galway Bay Golf Resort. Pick me!

played in the remnants of a hurricane. 4” in 24 hours but was so hot and dry the weeks leading up that I never had the chance to play due to work. One of the most enjoyable rounds!

 

Currently fitted with FJ DryJoys Tour LTS pant, Hydrolite Jacket

Cary Mathes lives in Marshalltown, Iowa (central part of the State for those wondering what part of the refrigerator I live in).  I currently have a FootJoy pants/jacket combination.  Where was Galway Bay when I needed them last year on our annual early Spring guy's golf trip to Osage Beach, Missouri?  That was the worst weather I've probably played in, but it wasn't rain - it was snow blowing sideways with temperatures in the 30's. We Iowegians need more than "rain" wear.  We need "rain/snow" wear. If I can figure it out, I will attempt to attach a short video documenting the debacle.  Thanks!!

My current rain gear is Pro Quip

Plaid in sideways rain and 45 degrees at the Gailes in Northern Michigan.  I am going on a golf trip to Ireland this spring.  This will give the rain gear the ultimate test.

This is Dave, from Virginia. 

I currently have a Footjoy Hydrolite Rain Jacket, and ZR rain pants.

The worst rain I ever played in was on my first trip to Ireland in September 2006.  Two hurricanes had come up the east coast of the US, and continued across the Atlantic following the Gulf Stream to hammer the west coast of Ireland.  We played 8 days of golf, heavy wind and at least SOME rain every day.  Several days we had consistent steady rain, sideways, all day long.  We did see a few patches of blue sky, but they were few and far between.

I currently wear a Ping jacket but have never worn pants due to the baggy extra layer + FJ rain gloves.

Tie between 30mph winds and downpour and at the Old Course for the entire bank nine, at least it was 60 degrees out.  45 degrees and a downpour for 12 holes playing The Loop ; push cart umbrella holder was broken.

Ballyliffin 2013 - pouring rain, 30 - 40 mph winds, and about 45 degrees.  But we were in Ireland so we played.  Scorecard disintegrated by the 4th hole - more fun without keeping score

David Atkinson from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Mostly using Footjoy these days, but I've tried all the traditional makes.

We play here (walking) 12 months of the year as most courses remain open.  Usually 85 to 100 rounds per year.  Frequent rain and 40F temps.  

Worst rain was in St. Andrews on the Old Course - horizontal (high winds).  3 layers that day!

thanks for the opportunity.
