Galvin Green Ashton Shakedry Jacket
Galvin Green was established back in 1990 by entrepreneur Tomas Nilsson. He saw an opportunity to make golf-specific clothing to meet the needs of golfers who want to play in changing weather conditions. For serious golfers, Galvin Green represents a benchmark of performance. Their products always deliver the highest levels of comfort and protection and they consistently push the boundaries to create new technologies and designs that will help golfers play their best in all weathers.
Galvin Green’s Ashton Gore-Tex Shakedry jacket is a standalone garment that’s the first streamlined, superlight waterproof jacket of its kind in golf. It’s also the lightest rain jacket ever made by Galvin Green – weighing just 174 grams. This is possible thanks to the unrivalled Gore-Tex membrane being placed on the outside, without a face fabric for the first time. This enables water to bead off the surface, creating minimal chilling effect and a much faster dry-off time. Inside the extremely breathable, totally windproof jacket is a functional backer textile for greater comfort next to the skin.
The Ashton Shakedry is totally windproof and highly breathable. Having the Gore-Tex membrane on the outside eliminates friction during the golf swing and it means the jacket takes up minimal space inside the golf bag when folded down for storage.
Sleek and stylish performance jacket
Available in two colour options, the Ashton Shakedry is also an extremely sleek and stylish looking jacket. With shaped sleeves for easy movement, elastic binding on the cuffs, drawstring at the hem, water-repellent zippers and a chest pocket, it’s the complete package.
Galvin Green continues to deliver at the very highest level of golfing attire and this jacket represents the next step in waterproof technology. It will suit the serious golfer looking for serious equipment that offers the ultimate in protection and comfort, with no compromise to style or golfing performance.
