Breathable, Lightweight All-Weather Gear Named “Best Under $500”
NOVI, MI – Galway Bay’s (galwaybaygolf.com) newest All-Weather rainwear line recently debuted with instant acclaim and improvements to its renowned lightweight, breathable, fully waterproof Hydro-Flex 32 fabric. The award-winning collection of jackets, pants and pullovers, also known for its ability to block wind and rain, and allow golfers to stretch and move freely while staying warm and dry, showcases classic style and some new fashion-forward touches.
Popular golf equipment review website (www.mygolfspy.com) has already heralded Galway Bay’s All-Weather rainwear line 2021’s “Best Rain Wear Under $500.” According to MyGolfSpy’s panelists, “The All-Weather suit performs well once again. It has some small tweaks in its design but the performance was never compromised. The water runs off with ease but the suit remains breathable in warmer conditions. Throw in customizable pant lengths and you have a top performer in 2021.”
In 2018 and 2019, Galway Bay was also named MyGolfSpy’s “Most Wanted Rain Gear” over every other brand in the industry.
New for 2021, Galway Bay has made its ultra-waterproof Hydro-Flex 32 fabric even lighter and stretchier for better freedom of movement. Also, new colorways in the All-Weather Jacket line include black-on-black, black-on-sage and, for the first time, an eye-catching short-sleeved white jacket with black accents.
Galway Bay’s new All-Weather Pants are now available with a quieter, lighter Hydro-Flex 32 fabric for comfort and ease of motion. The waterproof and windproof pants now come in standard and tailored fit – with a more modern-cut tapered leg – options. Both pants feature belt loops, a seven-inch zipper and nine-inch-deep pockets, are designed to look like and be worn as golf slacks, eliminating the need to dress in layers. Galway Bay’s newest pants are constructed of the improved Hydro-Flex 32 material and can be ordered to fit a golfer’s exact waist and inseam sizes, optimizing comfort, fit and style like no other rain pant ever has.
“Our proprietary Hydro-Flex 32 fabric is the most breathable waterproof technology in the industry. The All-Weather Jacket is now more lightweight and includes more stretch with the same level of waterproofness and breathability,” says Galway Bay COO Michael Brown. “It’s the subtle touches, like a quieter, stretchier fabric and design elements that help you play undistracted and unrestricted, that our customers appreciate. Our jacket collar, for example, is high in the back to keep your neck dry while tapering down in the front so it doesn’t poke your chin. Add in rubberized waterproof zippers and rain pants that fit to your personal waist and inseam and you start to see our commitment to bringing golfers the most functional and enjoyable-to-wear rain gear on the market.”
THE 2021 LINE
The 2021 expansion of the Galway Bay line shows a commitment to the most cutting-edge materials and design in the industry while presenting an inviting variety of styles and colorways.
The all-new Black-on-Black All-Weather Long-Sleeve Jacket is available at a debut price of $299 (regular retail price – $329) while the matching unlined, lightweight and highly breathable Black All-Weather Pants, in classic fit, retail for $184. The All-Weather Short Sleeve Jacket will retail for $249 but is currently available for $229.
Later this year, an All-Weather Short-Sleeve White (with black accents) Jacket will be available for $249 along with the All-Weather Long-Sleeve Black with Sage Jacket ($329). “The Short-Sleeve White Jacket is an eye-catching piece that will have its instant fans. The black-on-black is a versatile staple that will likely be our best seller but we’re excited to be doing new things with our colorways and how the accents panels and the logos appear on jackets so the looks really pop. The Black with Sage Jacket really takes some fun, new directions with the accent panels but it’s still a great-looking, classic piece,” says Brown.
Galway Bay’s bi-component technology (Hydro-Flex 32) is a proprietary, three-layer 100% waterproof fabric that is constructed with a hydrophilic interior to pull moisture away from the skin and transfer it to the outer layer. The exterior surface area disperses and releases moisture for more efficient dry times. It regulates temperature in both hot and cold conditions. In addition, the fabric is more breathable, stretchable than ever, and features a rubberized waterproof zipper that together ensures the ultimate comfort and fit providing true performance.
All Galway Bay fabrics are designed to breathe easy, releasing excess body heat and reducing sweat so golfers can swing and move freely.
Galway Bay rainwear is sold online and, soon, in select golf shops. To learn more about Galway Bay’s innovative line of golf outerwear, visit www.GalwayBayGolf.com.
