Galvin Green was the official outerwear provider for the 2016 European Ryder Cup team and again will supply rain gear to Team Europe for the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris.
On Wednesday, Galvin Green released that outerwear to the public. The C-Knit Backer line of rain jackets and pants offer exceptional breathability, a soft hand feel and full waterproofness. The gear is made with an ultralight, three-layer stretch Gore-Tex fabric with the C-Knit backer.
“C-Knit Backer represents the next generation of golf rainwear and another ‘first’ for Galvin Green as the pioneering brand in the waterproofs sector,” said Christian Nilsson, CEO/managing director of Galvin Green. “A revolutionary fabric technology has been integrated into garments designed for golfers by golfers to offer maximum protection from the elements, while being amazingly lightweight and stylish at the same time.”
