3. I play year round in the Pacific Northwest, lol.  We get a lot of rain.  The worst though was Pacific Dunes, rain drops larger than my golf ball plus a 5 club wind.  I'd never played in a 5 club wind before.  I could have used better rain gear that day...

Aubrey in PA

FJ DryJoy Jacket, Nike Rain pants

The worst rain I've ever played in was a sideways rainstorm that made the Ocean Course in Kiawah feel like Scotland, followed by a similar rainstorm at Hidden Creek in NJ.

"I can't" means one of two things:
1) I'm not willing to try, or
2) I'm more afraid of failure than I am excited by success.

I can.

Davis - NY
2. Columbia rain jacket (not specific to golf) & FJ rain gloves
3. Worst rain ever - basically monsoon hit mid round in the afternoon league. 

Upstate NY is very rainy - pretty much every 3 days at minimum. So if you’re going to plan to play golf, prepare to get wet.

Todd from Louisiana

FJ Dryjoy vest and pants. Need something lightweight and dry.

HA HA, from Louisiana dude, we play in rain every week. And most of time it's hot and humid also.

You should never try to get in 9 ahead of a hurricane. Needless to say we all got wet.

Chad / Massachusetts

FJ Pants / Nike Storm FIT - Hyperadapt Jacket (had for a few years now and absolutely love it)

I love playing in the rain, so hard to pick the worst. But I would say Troon Challenge a couple years ago at Lake of Isles in CT. Temps in 40's , windy and a driving rain, Fun !

Mobile, Al

Rainest city in the US.  I currently use a Frogg toggs rain jacket.  I would love to try the Galway pants.

Worst rain was trapped on the back of RTJ Magnolia Grove.  Rained about 3 inches in an hour.  Cart path flooded to floor board.

We play 12 months a year here, but it can be wet.

2. Nike hyperadapt storm-fit jacket and some old footjoy pants that long ago lost their waterproof properties.

3. About 1 or 2 times a year I'll get caught in some form of rain or precipitation but the worst had to be about 8 or 9 years ago.  It was during an outing for the high school football team that I work for and it got biblical.  I tried to convince my group to wait it finish the hole and wait it out but it was a soaker.  Greens were unputtable (even though I tried for the one hole we were finishing), bunkers were washed out and if memory serves me correctly I think we may have gotten water in our basement that same storm.  Not a good time, so all in all I'd say I'd be a great candidate to review this fine product and put it through it's paces!

Timothy - Ohio

FJ short Sleeve (not so good)

Best round of golf ever played torrential down pour all 18 holes, standing water on greens. Wind and Cold just making your muscles tighten up.  I had several leather grips that were destroyed that day.  IT WILL NOT STOP ME FROM PLAYING!

If you can't play in the pouring rain, you can't play here......we play rain, shine, cold, wind, snow.  If it's open, we're playing.  You could not get a better rain gear tester than me!

On the worst days, I wear a Zero Restriction Gore Tex full-zip jacket and Cross pants.  It has to be like a fire hose through a sprinkler head to break that get out though. Normally a Sun Ice 1/4 zip jacket and some Sun Ice lightweight pants. 

I chose my rain gear based on Flexibility. If my swing is tight because of gear, I'm not wearin it!   I wear an XL and don't need any more restriction than my 47 year old body already gives me.

I would love to try this gear, provide true feedback and hopefully develop into a word of mouth brand ambassador. 

I've read the Galway stories, watched the reviews and can't wait to try it while nobody else is playing in rain.

Praying for rain......🍁 ⛳ 🌧️ 🌪️ ☔ ❄️ 👍
