Galvin Green Armstrong Jacket Review
Established in 1990 by Swedish entrepreneur Tomas Nilsson, Galvin Green has been helping golfers cope with changing weather conditions for over 30 years. The company sets the benchmark for performance apparel with its products offering the highest levels of comfort and protection from the elements. We’ve been fans for a long time now, with models like the Action and Ashton Shakedry appearing in editor’s pick lists and previous guides as the best waterproof golf jackets. In 2022, the Armstrong has earned its place.
Of course, we should start by mentioning the protective performance offered here, which is the essence of this jacket. It is 100% waterproof with a Gore-Tex Paclite stretch fabric construction, which will help any golfer keep adverse weather conditions at bay while on the golf course. Importantly, this fabric is also characterized by being lightweight, breathable and compressible, so it doesn’t impede the golf swing or movement, doesn’t feel too hot, and can be folded up so you can be easily stored in your golf bag.
Importantly, the Armstrong is as feature-rich as it gets when it comes to the best waterproof golf jackets on the market. Looks like Galvin Green has really thought about every little detail here with features like partially elasticated cuffs, chest width adjustment, repositioned side seam for optimal comfort and freedom of movement and zippers water-repellent. There is also an elastic cord at the hem and the fabrics used are Bluesign approved, which means that harmful substances have been eliminated from the manufacturing process. Finally, design-wise, the jacket comes in five colors and looks modern without being over the top. The graphics really stand out, but we think the jacket can be used off the course as well, which is a huge plus.
Overall, Galvin Green continues to make some of the best waterproof jackets and products in the game through continuous evolution and implementation of cutting-edge technologies. The Armstrong reveals this and is a model to consider if you are looking to protect yourself from Mother Nature this year.
